Recipe: (sorta) Chicken Taco Bake

Today was one of those days that I just threw something together from what was around in the fridge, finishing up a few things in there....and the final review from hubby???


wait for it....

Are you ready???

Ok - 'It was good.'

I'm not gonna lie, I'm not a good - that's a raving review in our household, upgraded from 'It was fine'.  Which is  90% of the time.

I call is a success!  But really, add taco seasoning to anything and it'll be good!   This was also semi-healthy too though so I was proud.

and ate it all without taking a picture. bad.

So use your imagination!

Layer of nacho chips
Layer of a this mixture:
1avocado, a little mayo and leftover ricotta cheese - add taco seasoning to taste
Layer of frozen veggies of your choice(we had carrots, peas and corn)
Layer of canned beans, drained.
Layer of chopped up chicken
Layer of salsa
Layer of shredded cheese of your choice.

Throw in the oven for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted. 

Scoop it with chips or eat plain.


This is not my version, nor did it look like this...but this post is boring without it, right? :)

Holidays = Fail

Ok guys, next time I make a goal right before a holiday...just straight out call me crazy:)  As of Tuesday I was the same weight and had only done my squats one night!  
Epic Fail!

BUT on the bright side, I got my healthy on again as of Wednesday and decided to do a 3 - day raw food cleanse....well, by this morning my little nursing baby was slightly annoyed and a little gassy - sooo, this was a bit of a fail too.  I'm not going to continue with it for her sake and that it was gross drinking pureed veggies all day....but mostly the baby thing ;)

The bright side though? I lost 4 lbs just doing the cleanse for 1 day!  Good jump start to getting back on track and I've done my squats the last two night sin a row.  For now I'm sticking to veggies and fruit for a couple more days but I'll just eat them instead of pureeing them all together - now I just have to try and get to them before Carlee eats them all on me.

That's it here for my weight watch but check out my girlies at Easter this weekend:)

Strange person in a huge bunny costume....Carlee runs and hugs.  Maybe its time for stranger danger talk! :S

Hope you all had a very happy Easter celebration.  Will update soon on how things are going on my squat challenge and weight loss goals!
