Sick Day!

Or should I say sick week! I have a miserable cold, Sinus infection or something horrible is going on in my body. The last thing I can do is plan my meals, I have tried to eat reasonably but I have had to rely on a little fast food and alot of oatmeal.

This is an area that has always been difficult for me. Some people just go to bed and get better, I have always been one of those "eat for comfort" and "eat for strength" type of people. That can be dangerous when there are leftover Christmas goodies. This is a point in my journey that I have not been able to get past. I have done better this time, but not good.

I have four days off to get rid of this plague, I must find a way to get past the munchies that follow me when I am sick. I'll let you know when I am well how I did. If you have any suggestions please send them my way.

Unstuffed Cabagge Rolls......So Yummy!

These were so good!
1 pound lean Ground Beef
1/2 Onion
4 cups Cabbage ( I use Cole Slaw Mix)
20 ounces Crushed Tomatoes
3 Tablespoons Brown sugar
2 Cups Cooked Rice
1 8 ounce can of Tomato Sauce
2 Tablespoons of Ketchup
Salt and Pepper
Brown the Beef, onion and cabbage in a large skillet. When it is almost finished browning add the Tomatoes and simmer until cooked thoroughly. Add 2 cups of Cooked Rice and simmer a little longer. I put them in 4 ramekins, top them with a mixture of Tomato sauce and Ketchup, sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar on top and broil for a few minutes.
Lunch was a small salad and Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls. 7 points of Delishisness!
