Hey it's OK If....

I used to LOVE the "Hey, It's OK If..." Column in Glamour Magazine and I don't think they make it anymore....so here I am making my own!


Hey It's Ok If...You think they should serve wine as a part of every continental breakfast.
(It is grape juice after all)



Hey It's Ok If...You go to work with your hair wet because you spent all morning trying out makeup tips from your Pinterest board. 


Hey It's Ok If...Your idea of dinner and a movie is Honey Nut Cheerios and Saturday Night Live recordings from the DVR.  Let's get serious...who actually even watches SNL when it is "live"? #pastmybedtime


Hey It's OK If...you still wish the Spice Girls were on their World Tour in hopes of a 
David Beckham Guest Appearance.



Hey It's Ok If...you frequently say, "this would be so so much better if you added vodka".


Hey It's Ok If...you demand a date night on a random Tuesday because you purchased a Blowout on Groupon that you can only use during the week. 
(Plus you need an instagram post of the masterpiece you will never be able to recreate.)  


Hey It's Ok If....you know every word to Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" 
I'm bringing Booty Back!!

Turkey Italian Zucchini Boats

So these are super yummy and so EASY to prepare!  Dave's sister dropped off some giant zucchini this weekend and I immediately thought to make these!  They are pretty healthy and way better for you than pasta!

Just cut the Zucchini in half and scoop out the seeds with a spoon.


Fill the "boats" with Turkey mixture (see recipe below)



Top with Cheese and Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 Large Zucchini or several small ones
1 pound of  ground Turkey
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 jar Pasta Sauce
1/4 - 1/2 cup shredded low fat Mozzarella Cheese

Pre-heat oven to 375.  Grease a glass pan.  Brown turkey meat and garlic.  Drain if needed.  Add pasta sauce and Italian seasoning, let simmer.  Cut zucchini in half and spoon out seeds, carving the middle to look like a "boat".  Fill boats with turkey mixture.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Top with cheese and bake another 3 minutes.  To make cheese brown, place under broiler until cheese starts to bubble and brown!  

ENJOY!!

BLT Brussel Sprout Salad

If you know me you know that I am obsessed with Brussel Sprouts! I have sautéed, roasted and even put them in a casserole.  I decided to try them in salad form this time.  I also wanted to use what I had at home.  It was Sunday afternoon, I had been at the pool all day and was in no mood to go to the grocery.  This recipe was all about mixing and tasting....Don't swear by my measurements!


Ingredients:

1 Bag of Brussel Sprouts (Washed and sliced in half)
1/2 cup diced Tomatoes ( I just cut cherry tomatos in half)
1/4 cup chopped bacon (I am redneck and love the microwave bacon so that is what I used)
1/4 cup shredded cheese ( I used Parmeasean and a Trader Joe mix; see photo below)
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt & Pepper

Wash and slice brussels in half.  I put them in my Ninja to chop them up.  Empty into a bowl and mix in other ingredients!  Ta Da!  A BLT Brussel Sprout Salad!  Thank me later!! YUMMY!
