Hope you all are having a nice Thursday. I disappeared for a few days and apologize for my absence. After discussing the hectic-ness that has been these last few weeks with Josh, I have decided to slow down my blogging a bit and spend more time enjoying life. I know you all understand! Instead of daily dinner posts, you will start seeing more sporadic postings a time or two a week with recipes or just fun info about what is going on with us. I hope you will continue to read.
Workouts this week have been fabulous thus far:
- Monday: Taught Body Pump, ran 2 miles
- Tuesday: Taught Body Attack
- Wednesday: Ran 2 miles, 45 minute Spin
- Thursday (to be): Teach 45 minute Body Step, 45 minute Body Pump
- Friday (to be): Short run or off
- Saturday (to be): Teach Body Step
- Sunday (to be): Off
I also got my new releases for Pump, Step and Attack! Very exciting, but overwhelming to know how much choreography I need to learn:I have made and posted about this recipe before (based on this cooks.com recipe), but it really is a great home version of takeout and Josh LOVES it, so figured it was worth a second post. This can be placed on top of rice (or any of your other favorite grains).
Beef and Broccoli
Quick Brown Rice (or other favorite grain, Josh requested none this time around)
1 tbsp. cornstarch
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 lb. thin beef
1 clove garlic, minced (or desired amount of jarred garlic)
1/4 tsp. red pepper, crushed, dried
2 c. chopped broccoli
1/2 c. beef broth
In a bowl, combine cornstarch and soy sauce with a whisk. Coat thin beef with sauce, cover and refrigerate for 2-4 hours (or overnight). Drain, Reserve marinade (important!!). Cut beef into thin, bite sized strips.
Cook rice (or other grain) according to package directions.
Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to electric skillet or skillet on cook top on medium-low (250 degrees). Add garlic and red pepper. Cook for 2 minutes and remove- place in same bowl as reserved marinade. Add 1 tablespoon oil and broccoli, cook 2 minutes and remove to separate bowl. Add 1 tablespoon oil and beef and cook 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Add beef broth, reserved marinade and garlic/red pepper, bring to boil, stirring constantly, cook for 1 minute. Add broccoli and cook 2-3 minutes or until broccoli is at desired tenderness (make sure you don't burn the sauce). Serve with rice.
