Beef & Peas

If you're going to add any recipe to your rotation, this is it! It was so good and really easy to make. I made this last night (inspired by The Pioneer Woman's version-here) and it took about 15 minutes from start to finish. I served it over Jasmine rice (and I did leave out the green onions because I didn't have any.) I added the recipe to my online WW builder to calculate the points and it was 8 in the Points Plus plan ~ so reasonable that I ate the leftovers tonight. Delish!

Here's to 2011!

It's that time of year when I must put a little note on my computer to check the date on every document I prepare because I will write 2010 until April if I don't! Wow! 2011. I hope it slows down and doesn't fly by as quickly as last year, well the first half can fly by and then let's slow down the second half. The first half still finds Josh in a war zone and I will rest easier when he & Peggy are home again. And I get to visit them in Germany this summer when they finish their deployment. I am so looking forward to that!

Resolutions? Well, I have my ongoing resolutions (along with the rest of the world) to lose weight and save money, but I'm going to listen to Dr. Phil this once and take this arbitrary day to think about what is really important and focus on that. I am going to be happy and I'm going to savor the little moments in life that slip by so quickly that if we don't will be gone from our memories. I'm going to pay it forward when I can and I think that will all be for the good for me. And of course I'm going to scrap and cook and read and watch movies and all the stuff that I enjoy so much! Yesterday, Scot & I went to the movies at 9:00 in the morning. We do like to beat the crowds LOL! We saw the new Coen Brothers movie, True Grit. It was really good; I recommend it highly. I only had to cover my eyes a couple of times at a bit of violence. You should see it.

Tonight for dinner, we are having Asian Pork Tenderloin, with Jasmine Rice, Spring Rolls, and Sugar Snap Peas. And for luck I'm going to make the Zannie's Black Eyed Peas dip that I got this morning here from the Pioneer Woman. Here's the recipe for the Asian Pork Tenderloin, but I haven't made a card for the dip yet. Go to the Pioneer Woman's site and you'll be hooked for sure. Happy New Year!
