Yesterday was the last and final appearance of the cauliflower crustless quiche šŸ˜€Ā  I had an english muffin on the side this time, of course still with bacon and Taco Bell sauce!Ā  Breakfast: 472 calories, 35 carbs, 30 protein, 26 fat and 7.3 fiber.

Since I did the extreme ride the day before, I opted for the elliptical.Ā  While its nice to watch HGTV while working out, I don’t think its as good of a workout.Ā  45 minutes went by and wasn’t anywhere near out of breath or sweaty like the bike machine.

Lunch was leftovers: my buffalo chicken chili with 1 cup cooked pasta and red pepper slices.Ā  Lunch: 498 calories, 70 carbs, 23 protein, 15 fat and 17.1 fiber šŸ˜€

Remember when I bought the whole beef tenderloin last weekend?Ā  The video I watched to learn how to cut it down said that the tail, head and side pieces, once the silver skin and extra fat could be used, makes great burgers.Ā  I used the attachment on our kitchen aid.Ā  I was afraid the meat wouldn’t stay together, so while the grill heated up, I put them in the freezer for 15 minutes.

they look good šŸ˜€
cheese makes everything better šŸ˜€
I made Tony's burger a BLT burger

And I had lots of mustard and pickled jalapenos on mine:

The verdict?Ā  The burgers weren’t that good.Ā  I think because maybe our grinder doesn’t get a coarse enough grind?Ā  So while you would eat one bite of the burger, it would be good, but then the next bite might be really tough – too tough to even eat.Ā  Lesson learned!Ā  But that corn?Ā  Best corn we’ve had all summer! My co-worker went to the farmers market near our office yesterday, and brought me mirai corn:

It’s from a farm in Wisconsin and its so good.Ā  Once the water comes to a boil, you only need to cook it for 2 minutes for perfection.Ā  It is so sweet and tender – thanks Renee! šŸ˜€

Stats for Thursday:

  • 1545 calories, 176 carbs, 72 protein, 67 fat, 25 fiber
  • 37% of calories from fat (we’re getting better!)
  • 45 minute elliptical

There are so many interesting dishes around food blog land, I only wish I had time to make everything that I see.Ā  I think I’ll start a new feature on BDL: “I want to make that.

I’ll start off with something that is near and dear to my heart:Ā  homemade Tabasco! I want to make that! šŸ˜€
