So back to cooking healthier

Momma said time to get back on the diet, so smoked two chickens, and did 8 turkey burgers So we would have good stuff during the week. Just a shot of the chickens on the pit. Now, this won't replace the occasional rib / brisket/ butt, just going to spread it out!

Nothing wrong with that kind of a diet. Looks great.

Fine looking birds. Have had the turkey burgers..taint bad. The Warden has been buying some Johnsonville Chicken sausage with cheese and japs. Fully cooked. Mighty tasty. Real good on the grill. Not sure how healthy it is but it do not taste like dead chickens.

Re: So back to cooking healthier

And not to get too crazy on a health binge, I am posting a smoked turkey meatloaf under recipes. Figured this out under the "old" Weight Watchers point system.
But dont get my wrong, Paula Deen still has my heart!! LOL.

I know the feeling. I was thinking I need to loses a pound or two as mankini season is just around the corner..

Re: So back to cooking healthier

Hmmm..did not realize the thong swim trunk season was so close. Thanks for the memory jog. Think I am fixing to start dragging out my januine Jack LaLane exercise mat and start doing some set ups..leg lifts etc. My wrists still hurt from the pushup contest last year demanded by the health insurance company. I shoulda slapped a workmans comp deal on em over that. I already drink Bud Lite so couldnt knock too many calories off of that..and only have that bad habit about twice a week or so when running the big chili meeting. I dont think hooch and wine have many calories.

Mr. Wheeler, wine may have calories, but it also counts as your daily ration of fruit. In my version anyway!
