No noodles zucchini lasagna!!!

I tried this recipe the other night and it's delish! I made some of it up and combined some ideas from I used two zucchinis sliced thinly and covered with salt and pepper. For my sauce I used ground turkey and browned with salt, pepper green peeper and onion. After browning I added tomato sauce and blended up one tomato. For the cheese mixture I used 1 cup of lowest cottage cheese, 6 tablespoons of honey, one egg white and 6 tablespoons of parsley and whisked it together. Then I layered the lasagna zucchini slices, meat sauce, cottage cheese mixture, low fat shredded mozzarella, spinach leaves and then repeat the layers and top off with a layer of parmesan cheese. Baked at 325 for 20 minutes covered in foil. Then uncovered for 15 minutes at 350. Delish!

Happy Halloween!
I had an amazing Halloween! It's my favorite holiday and the start of the holidays, which is my favorite time of year. I had a great time this Halloween season, watching scary movies, dressing up and handing out candy to trick or treaters. I loved the pumpkin I carved! It was little Jes pumpkin and big Thom pumpkin. Happy days!

Very Healthy

Driving to work today I was listening to talk radio and the topic of discussion was relationships and of course the DO'S and DON'TS of dating. I kept chuckling at the things they were advising and then I thought "whew, good god! I love the relationship I am in!" I often think this when hearing good friends or....anyone... really, complaining of heart break. I can't imagine a better guy than Mr. Byrne. But every girl in a healthy relationship thinks this or else they should. In the past couple months things have really sped up in my life, planning a wedding, applying for grad school, horrible months at work and a brother going through very serious and real problems. I don't have time to really pause and appreciate Mr. Byrne or my love for him. I made a promise to myself to start today to always take a moment and just love him and who he is. I could write a book about what I've learned in relationships and what to do and not to do. I've had my share of mistakes and heartbreak. I am sure I will learn plenty in our marriage. But, for now, I just appreciate and love Mr. Byrne.

Make a list of all the things you are loving in your life currently. It can be harder than it seems and it's fun to come back to years or months from now and see what you were loving at that moment.
