So. NaNoWriMo. Still writing. In fact, I need to up my word count. I read an interesting blog post by Maggie Stiefvater, author of Shiver, one of my faves. She had a different look on NaNo, I'm glad I read it because it was good to see both sides of the, um, thing. Also, I'm so glad I want to be a writer, because words are my life and all I can think of to describe the issue of NaNo is "thing". Man. I blame working today as reasons why my brain is pudding. Also my feet are dead. Dead, I say.
South Beach Diet. Still on it. Already losing weight. I know I know, I'm not supposed to weigh myself every day. Well, get over it. I'm going to. Because my scale is right.there. And I really want to know. So weigh every day I shall. And you can't stop me.
I'm sorry, kind reader. I blame the Halloween candy in my kitchen calling out to me. It's those Almond Joys. Durn you, Almond Joys!
Anyways, let me share with you another good low carb meal that I made last night. Because I know you're not nearly bored enough.
Two or three zucchini (depending on size), sliced in pretty little round slices, skin still on
Spaghtetti sauce (I bought this way expensive sugar free kind)
1 lb ground turkey (you could use beef but I never do)
Mozarrella cheese (shredded, preferably 2% or low fat kind)
Brown your meat. When browned, drain if necessary. Put meat back in skillet, add in spaghetti sauce, heat until warm. Spray a glass casserole dish (I use the regular 9 x 13 or whatever) with cooking spray. Put thin meat/sauce layer on bottom of dish. Layer of zucchini slices. Meat/sauce layer. Sprinkle with cheese. Zucchini layer. Meat/sauce layer. Cheese. Repeat until you've depleted your zucchini/meat/sauce/cheese. Bake at, oh I don't know, something like 350 for 20-25 minutes. Or until bubbly. Or until the zucchini isn't tough. Or until you think it looks done.
It was nummy.
Happy...what day is today?
