Last night I reminded myself how badly I can feel when I overeat. I knew the recipe I was making (American Goulash) made a lot of food and it would have been difficult to halve the ingredients, so I made the whole thing. Had I not gone back for seconds, mostly because I had so much left over, I would have been fine. In addition to overeating I made a few other discoveries:
- Red bell peppers can mold on the inside? Yuck! The pepper looked fine on the outside but when I cut the top off it was no bueno.
- This recipe can be made meatless. The recipe calls for ground beef and I was going to substitute Beyond crumbles, but I had a pound of button mushrooms in the refrigerator so I chopped those into small pieces and used them in place of the beef. Yes, there was some beefy flavor lost, but not enough to concern me.
- This recipe also works if you add an entire box of baby spinach at the end. Spinach wasnâ€™t called for, but again, I had it on hand and it needed to be used.
- Itâ€™s wiser to add cheese to each serving than to the entire pot as directed. Dishing out the goulash was gooey, messy affair, and I would probably use a lot less cheese if I added it to each individual serving.
Even though I rode the trainer yesterday I almost considered going out for a walk to combat my gluttony.
I made a little progress on the work front, but am still trying to figure out the other difficulties in my life.
As I have been saying here in the recent past, I am typing this with window and door open to allow cool air to enter the house. Shockingly it is so cool this morning that my heater kicked on! Guess itâ€™s time to turn that off for Spring/Summer…
Hoping that I have fun this weekend, whatever that entails during these days. I should force myself to suit up and do some yard maintenance as well.
Have a good Friday, friends.
