New dinner recipe

Hey everyone! I hope you’ve had a great Thursday so far! Do the days seem like they fly by to anyone else?? There never seems to be enough time in the day lately!

For a snack this morning, I had one of my trusty favorites…Fage 2% with a drizzle of honey….when it comes to greek yogurts, I’ve tried others, but I keep coming back to Fage as my favorite…


For lunch I had a quick salad at the hospital cafe with Anthony…it was a nice treat, we work so nearby one another, but rarely have time to take a lunch break together, so it was a nice bright spot in my day.


And, I had to stop at the grocery store on my way home from work….it was a little later than usual and I was starving….I picked up a new Kashi bar that was really good….12 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber and tastes good- that’s a winner with me!


I was excited to come home and try a new recipe, courtesy of my friend Heather, who found this in Fitness Magazine….Warm Pasta Salad with Italian Turkey Sausage…I got lucky, because late this afternoon, I still didn’t have anything planned for dinner…I knew I needed to stop at the grocery store on the way home, but I was uninspired…so Heather showed me this recipe and I decided to give it a try. I changed a couple of things….1. I used zucchini instead of eggplant, and 2. I used fresh oregano instead of dried…oh- and I used whole wheat rotini instead of wagon wheels….

Here are my beautiful veggies ready for the grill…


And, homemade dressing with fresh oregano from our herb garden…


Finished product…it was easy and very very good! Thank you Heather!


And a salad with feta and kalamata olives…yum.


Anthony and I took a nice walk after dinner and now it is already time for bed! I need a few more hours…but, I’m trying to go to bed earlier with the intention of doing better with morning workouts!

Enjoy the rest of your evening…Goodnight!

  1. Your dinner sounds and looks delicious! I think I’ll have to try the recipe soon…. 🙂

  2. Ooh, I love grilled veggies! Your dinner sounds awesome, and I love that your dressing used fresh herbs. The salad looks yummy, too 🙂
    Have a great night

  3. Aww it’s so sweet you got to have lunch with your man! That would definitely brighten my day. And I love recipes that encourage a nice selection of veggies!

  4. I LOVE those Kashi bars!! They are my favorite. Also, have you tried the greek yogurt, with honey and keylime juice? A friend of mine does that with her greek yogurt and I really want to try it (kind of like a keylime pie). The salads look great, especially the one with the kalamata olives (I’m in love with olives). HAve a great day.
