I was in Kroger this afternoon. I got 2 bags of brussel sprouts. It looked at me, I looked at it, I walked away.
I thought I would do a little research. If anyone tries the rutabaga let me know 😉

The rutabaga is a root vegetable that looks very much like a turnip with yellow-orange flesh and ridges at its neck. Although this beta carotene-rich vegetable has been grown and marketed in our country for nearly 200 years, it remains an uncommon food in American dining. It’s actually a great tasting vegetable with a delicate sweetness and flavor that hints of the light freshness of cabbage and turnip. With its easy preparation and versatility, great nutrition, and excellent flavor, the rutabaga can easily become an endearing family favorite.
Because rutabagas store so well, up to one month in the refrigerator and up to four months in commercial storage at 32 degrees, they are available year round. Planted in May and June, they’re harvested in late summer and early fall when their flavor is at its peak. Ideally, it’s best to shop for fresh rutabagas at farmer’s markets in early autumn.
I had a great time working yesterday. I mainly vacuumed and can I tell you i’m sore! It was 5.5 hours of not stop moving. By the time we were done I was STARVING. We got a call after our first house showing asking if they could do another at 6p-7p. Since the house was cleaned up we said sure. So I told Mike just to go to my mom’s and bring a salmon packet and bag of cole slaw mix for me 😀
I got up at 4a this morning. I decided to do Cathe’s Drill Max cardio only. Can I tell you all how much better i’ve been feeling. I’m back to early rising as well. 6:30a is NOT early for me. I hope it continues. I will have another appt in 5 weeks and then I should get some feedback on the bloodwork.
I met a friend at Starbucks and had the best coffee! I ordered an americano but put some CLICK in it! It was like a mocha latte YUMBALLS!!!(Thanks Barb) So don’t forget to enter my giveaway for your chance to win a canister of CLICK!
After my chest workout I went to the gym for cardio. I know that sounded weird huh? I did an hour on the treadmill and Amy was on the elliptical. When we are together we are in our own little world. I hope the guy on the treadmill next to me couldn’t hear us HA! Not that we care. I can’t wait for my treadmill to be repaired.
I’m about to watch Lost! YIPPEE!
Are you a Lost fan? I’m so sad it’s going to be over with.
