My Thursday mornings are not usually too productive as it is the morning I go to the VON SMART exercise program in Wiarton for 9:30 a.m. By the time I get up, take Missy Mercedes out, have myself a coffee, take Bandit and Lexus out each separately for their own runs, get myself ready to go, take Mercedes out for one more "lick and a promise" before I head out, there isn't too much time for anything else.
I am pleased to report this week I was able to participate fully in the SMART program. I felt a little more fatigued then usual, but I really think having been out walking with my friend, Sharon, the past while had helped me regain some of my strength, in turn making it easier for me participate today.
The only problem I had was after we were finished the one hour program, I started getting such a pressure headache instantly, that I knew could very well turn into a migraine. The past few years my Doctor has given ordered me prescriptions which I was to take as soon as I felt a migraine coming on. Well with my neck pain, it was impossible to determine if it was just that, neck pain, or the beginning of a migraine until it was right there crippling me. Those medications didn't really help me whatsoever, so I was relieved when this past Fall he tried me on a prescription they used to use in days gone by, which consists of Butalbital, ASA & Caffeine.
Once I made it back home the first thing I did was take one pill, not two, and within a half hour any signs of a migraine that had been there, were gone completely !!! Yeah!!! something that finally works for me and works well !!! There is "light" at the end of the pain tunnel some days, I just knew there was ..... LOL.
Feeling better once the medications had kicked in, I got right down to making Rob and I our Dinner, which I am pleased to say was NOT Chicken.
Today I made, one of what has become one of Rob's now favorite dishes, Layered Enchilada Bake, a Kraft Recipe I found last year when leafing through some of my old "What's Cooking Magazines".
"I know when were were out shopping one time or another, I had come across this White Corn & Black Beans Mild Salsa that I had picked up in mind for this recipe, thinking it might be nice change rather then just using regular Salsa, as the recipe calls for. I am sure the recipe must have been reasonable at the time as well, as I had bought two jars at the time."
"Once the ground beef and onions were cooked, I added a can of Black Beans, 2 tbsp. Chili Powder, 1/4 cup Kraft Zesty Italian Salad dressing and the Salsa until heated through."
