I made it... Goulash!!!

Okay so my husbands aunt makes goulash. He tried to make it once... It wasn't very good.  shh... Don't tell him that I said that! So, tonight I decided to make it... And change it up a little! 

Goulash my way!

1 pound hamburger
1/2  onion
1 can rotel
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
Elbow noodles

This is where it gets changed... I didn't measure so this is all as much or as little as you want! 

Crushed red peppers

Here's how to do it...

Brown your hamburger and onion, add  crushed red pepper, salt, pepper and garlic. 

In a big pot start the elbow noodles

Drain hamburger, add rotel, add diced tomato, and let simmer.

Drain elbow noodles and return to pot

Put hamburger mixture in with the noodles, and add the can of tomato sauce

Give it a good stir, let sit for a few minutes and dinner is done! 

30 Day Squat and Plank challenge!

So after yesterdays weigh in Wednesday, I decided to make my own calendar to check the days off as we go.. so here it is! Please feel free to print and save this!

Eating good has been a struggle, working out has been a struggle... and I haven't had ANY motivation!!!

SO... I'd love to hear what y'all are doing...

These things are TOO yummy not to share and they are SO addicting! You can get them at SAMS CLUB

    Weigh in Wednesday! {linky}

    GOOD MORNING!  It's our next edition of Weigh in Wednesday... and Because I got such a HUGE ( insert sarcasm here) response I'm gonna keep it up. Hope everyone is having a great week!

    This weeks yummy is....
    Thank you Six sister's stuff! It looks so yummy... and I have a small (HUGE) addiction to chocolate!

    Frozen Bananas

    -3 large bananas
    -1/2 cup chocolate chips (either semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
    -1/2 cup peanut butter (I used creamy, but crunchy would work too! It would just have chunks in it . . . obviously)
    -Toppings (optional)- I used crushed peanuts and coconut . . . but anything goes!
    1. Set out a pan (I used a small cookie sheet) with a piece of wax paper on it.
    2. Cut up the bananas into good-sized chunks. Each banana should give you around 6-8 pieces.
    3. Heat the peanut butter and chocolate chips in the microwave on high for about a minute. Then stir until smooth.
    4. Dip the banana pieces in the chocolate-peanut butter mixture. Lay them out leaving some space between them on the parchment/wax paper. Then when you've "covered" them all, use the remaining mixture to spoon over the tops (for even more chocolate-y goodness).
    5. Top with toppings (if you want them!). Transfer to the freezer for about an hour until hardened.
    6. You can enjoy them like this (but they really aren't frozen yet -- and when they're frozen, the banana tastes like vanilla ice cream) . . . I suggest then covering with some plastic wrap (or in a Tupperware/Rubbermaid container) and let freeze overnight.
    Todays healthy tip brought to you by ME!!! You know you always hear drink lots of water but in reality sometimes it's hard to drink half you weight in water... Try! and if you get tired of plain water add something to it. Ex: Lemons, strawberries, crystal light. It really helps!
