This morning I decided I wanted to try a new recipe in the crock pot. Eric and I are trying to eat healthier, so I picked a recipe from one of our vegetarian cook books. Eric and I ate vegetarian for one year. We started November 2008 and stopped November 2009. We both are proud that we did it that long, but it isn't a diet I could always have. I love a good burger, ribs and fried chicken! We still enjoy some hearty vegetarian dishes though! I decided to make Mediterranean Minestrone Casserole. It turned out fabulous! I'll include the recipe at the end of this post! I had everything on hand to make it which was a plus. Here are all of the ingredients.
While my meal was cooking in the crock pot, we decided to head over to Lifetime Fitness this afternoon for a work out. Today we added Avery to our gym membership so she could go to the child care center when I went to the gym during the week on my own. She lasted all of 8 minutes and we got called over the intercom. Poor thing was scared and crying. She was doing really well when left her. She was playing with 10 month old twin girls and the lady working in the infant room was really sweet. I felt so bad when we went in to get her and saw her so upset. The child care center closes at 4pm on Saturday and it was 3:40pm at that point so we just came back home. Eric and I got an awesome 8 minute work out! I have a reservation for her to go back to child care at 11am on Tuesday so hopefully she does better!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
