Jumpin' Jambalaya

My End of July Harvest

Weight: 149.2 lbs (damn straight!) 

Summer has been going great thus far and despite my 6 weddings this summer (think yummy buffet dinners and free wine, wine, wine), I am still losing weight! Hello 140's, I promise to never leave you again (unless it's for my oh so evasive friend 130's...)

The garden is magnificent and I haven't been blogging much because decides the hot hot heat up in Northern Alberta, my lettuce section of the garden is growing faster than you can say "salad with sun-dried tomatoes, onion and a hard-boiled egg... once again".

I have taken my BBQing to the next level this summer. The in-laws would be proud (they cook everything on the BBQ - even in the dead of winter). My latest concoction? Jumping Jambalaya in a foil pouch. No clean-up? That's my kind of dinner!

Simply French Onion Soup

This is one of my favorite dishes. It is super filling, very easy on my calorie count and oh so delicious! I have been waiting for a gloomy day to whip some up and thankfully it was thunder showering all day yesterday! PERFECT!

It is so super simple that I almost don't want to post it but here it is Nicola!
