Catching Up

Oh gosh, I drafted this last week and thought I posted it!

Thanksgiving is over and it feels like we're rolling really fast towards Christmas!   We spent the weekend baking tons of holiday goodies for the three holiday get togethers we have this coming week so for dinners we ate store bought poke (seasoned raw fish), sashimi (slices of raw fish), leftover turkey and lots of broccoli.

This weekend will be another busy one with our holiday get togethers, so not much cooking going on this weekend.  It's been hard with the holiday get togethers to say no to carbs and sweets, but so far we've been able to keep the carb and sugar intake to a minimum.  Most days we try not to have any.  I guess the Dukan Diet is sort of on hold for now.  We wanted to go back into Cruise after our scouting trip, but we're still in Consolidation.  The nice thing is with the 45 minute aerobic workout (every other day), we've been able to lose the weight we gained during the scouting trip.

Today we decided to catch up on Flamidwyfe's blog.  Her blog has always been a source of inspiration and when we feel we need a kick in the butt to buckle down on the Dukan Diet, we read through some of her posts.  It's definitely getting us excited again.  We've already decided at this Sunday's Brunch it'll be no desserts or carbs...just attacking the sashimi area, the less fatty meats and veggies.

We do have a couple of recipes to post like our Nabe Recipe which is a Japanese Hot Pot recipe.  Very easy to make where ever you live and with the wintery weather here, the soup base will keep you nice and warm.   Nabe is really just a broth (you can use different kinds, homemade) with veggies and meats.  You can also add Shirataki Tofu noodles to the broth.

Hope to post that recipe soon!

Hope everyone is having a great holiday season.
