i have a new may cause you to eat a larger portion than you read at your own risk!

tonight's taco night:

1 lb ground turkey
1 tsp olive oil
1 half small onion (chopped)
2 cloves garlic (chopped)
1 tsp sea salt
3 TBS burrito seasoning spice (taco seasoning would be fine, too)
1/4 C lime juice
2 tsp fresh lemon thyme

saute the onion in olive oil for 5 minutes. add garlic. add salt. add turkey meat. brown turkey meat for 5 minutes. add burrito seasoning and lime juice and cook for another 3 minutes. add fresh lemon thyme and cook for a few more minutes.

go crazy with the toppings like tomatoes, salsa, lettuce, and fat free sour cream! i even chopped up the leafy parts of celery instead of lettuce. YUM!!

i'm not on WW (my mom is and she thinks they are about 3 pts each, depending on your shell) so i don't know how many points my little tacos were but i consumed THREE! (in total, about a quarter pound of the meat mix-is that bad?) they were soooo flavorful!! AND healthy!!

oh, and it's best NOT to have a slice of cheesecake for dessert after dinner. tee hee

I just found your site through Libby's site. It is fun to hear about the Parker happenings. Yummy tacos! I have been craving (not that kind of craving) taco salad. Oh, and I love Jillian too. I just sit on my couch and watch these guys work out like crazy. I love it! Maybe next time I should watch it from the treadmill.

Thanks for the comments! You and Becky crack me up with your WW blogging and competitions. Sounds like your doing great! I also love Biggest Loser but, because I have a little crush on Bob, I'm not sure if he's gay or not, but still.
Anyway, your kids are adorable! I just saw that pic of Macrae in the tub, Stinkin' cute! And aren't princess girls so much fun and dramatic!!!

Looks good - we had burritos last night - shredded crock pot chick - I'm sure the caloric intake was head and shoulders over this baby - I should do this instead. Love that mexican! (Hope you don't mind me droppin' a line - found you through Ksis - her through Rach)
