Wednesday, day of too many sweets

So, today has not gone well.  Too much sweet junk food.  I’m actually throwing the reese’s pb cup xmas trees in the trash, and topping them with soap.  I bought them to use as stocking stuffers this weekend, and instead I’m shoving them down my piehole like I’m preparing for a Biggest Loser audition.  So, in the trash they go. 

I did, however, get up at the ass crack of dawn to workout.  I ran my 3 miles and did upper body weights.  I totally tried to wuss out, and texted my wake-up call girl (not a call girl, I swear) at 4:45 am and told her not to call me, because I was going to be on my own tonight (DH has poker) and I would workout then.  She insta-texted me back and said “No you won’t.  Get up!”  This, by the way, is why I love my Scoobs.  If she hadn’t made me get up, I’d totally have not done my workout today. 

Novia asked for my sauce recipe, to go with the meatballs.  I have a super specific recipe that involves dumping cans of stuff in a crock pot and leaving for the day, so here it is.  Roughly.  😀

  • 1 big can of diced tomatoes, or two smaller ones…  I like the fire roasted ones, but any will probably do
  • 1 can organic kroger brand tomato sauce
  • garlic… if you do fresh, several cloves all minced up (cloves are the tiny things inside the big bulb, right?) or I use the jarred kind (not in oil) and I take a big ol’ glob of it and dump it in
  • italian seasoning… I dump some in
  • sugar…  I sprinkle a bit in, or sometimes splenda…  it takes the bitter/acidity out of the tomatoes

So yeah, that is the recipe.  Feel free to tweak… ha ha!

    are you pouring soap on them so that you won’t eat them? you crack my stuff up with the biggest loser audition reference! 🙂

    I love that OobyBeth is a bully from thousands of miles and two time zones away! I love even more that you texted her and told her not to call you, I just wouldn’t’ve picked up the phone when she called…

    thanks for the recipe, I’m going to fire up the crock pot and try it this weekend. Do I need to use a thickener? Or does it thicken with the long cooking process?

    I don’t usually need a thickener. The organice tomato sauce I use is thicker than regular stuff, tho (I have no idea why). You could also use Tomato puree if you are worried.

    I gave my DH the line about BL auditions today at lunch and he thought it was funny too. 😀
