Welcome to the ongoing saga of my family and our attempts to eat right, exercise, lose weight and still enjoy life, while also managing the care and treatment of injuries, chronic conditions, and cancer follow-up. Convinced that a healthy lifestyle and reasonable fitness level is attainable by even the most committed of workaholics, couch potatoes, and those with health issues, join us as we explore food and wellness choices, try to put new habits in place, and hold each other accountable along the way. Healthy food can taste delicious and wellness practices need not be burdensome. At least, that is our hope, especially as we share resources with others who are working to be well.

A Quick Dinner Find

Crock Pot Swedish Meatballs

Yesterday, my daughter made dinner in the crock pot because our schedule was a bit crazy.  We had to pick up a Koalagirl child, run some errands, attend our homeschool group Together on Tuesdays event, and drive Katherine the Great to meet up with her choir friend so they could commute to a joint rehearsal at a not-quite-so-local college.  The recipe was Crock Pot Swedish Meatballs from About.com Busy Cooks.  Given that the dish used frozen meatballs, it really was quite tasty.  We both thought it still needed something, though, and decided that the next time we make it, we will probably add some white wine and chives.  We ate the meatballs over egg noodles, much like stroganoff.  My husband took the leftovers, added some extra pepper and some leftover cooked cabbage, and tucked the concoction into a storage container for lunch today.  Quick.  Tasty.  Highly recommended.
