Last nights dinner

 In an effort to stay on track and also share with you/be accountable for my exercise I am going to start each blog post off with yesterdays exercise log.

Yesterday A.M. Walked 7km pushing a stroller
Yesterday P.M. Ran 4km on the treadmill

But the best part (isn't food always the best part??) was last nights dinner. Oh Gina at Skinnytaste you never fail me. I have yet to make a meal from her website that I haven't enjoyed, and they are all low on calories with fresh ingredients.

Last night's dinner dishes were so easy too, no special skills required and they had great flavour. I've used images directly from her blog as I didn't change the recipes other than using boneless pork chops and pre grated parmesan cheese.

I love potatoes in pretty much any form and I like sweet potatoes too but usually find them a little too sweet to eat too much at a time. These changed that, I could have eaten the whole pot. The garlic in these ones changed the flavour to more savoury and they are more like a puree than a mash...soooo good. Make them tonight, easy and you'll love them. You're welcome.

Also very tasty was the oven roasted cauliflower with parmesan sprinkled on top. Again, very easy and delicious.

And the meat with last nights dinner was pork chops with mushrooms and shallots (I used a regular onion).

The whole meal was a definite make again, and I will be making both side dishes to go along with other meals as well. Very tasty.
