                                           My Christmas Tree

Righteous Recipe ~ Parlsey, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme Trout

2 trout fillets
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon each fresh chopped parsley, sage, rosemary & thyme
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon coarse-grind black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
juice of 2 limes

In a plastic zip bag, combine all ingredients.
Shake it up and toss the fillets in, shaking and coating them thoroughly.
Zip up the plastic bag
Place it in the refrigerator at least 2 hours.
When ready to cook, toss marinade and grill,
broil or sauté trout as you normally would -
about 10 minutes total, turning once, until fish flakes easily!

    I got this recipe from the Kick in the Tush club and it looks wonderful.  I can't wait to try it. 

   It is a little before 7 am and I am going to be going to the gym shortly then home to wrap presents.  The tree is up and looks lovely.  My cinnamon scented pine cones smell great and I will be getting out my Christmas music soon.  For breakfast I will have the shredded wheat again as I like it with blueberries of course.  I didn't do well yesterday as I didn't have hardly any veggies.  I also had a mango bar which had too many calories but really tasted good.  An occasional treat is OK.

  I had a wonderful workout.  I am slowly increasing my weights and reps.  Feel the burn.  My love handles are going away and my thigh muscles are really showing.  My abdomen is a mess and I despair of that ever getting better but I bet it is stronger under all that flesh.  Maybe I should be saving up for a tummy tuck.  After all the surgeries I have had on my abdomen maybe it won't ever get much smaller or tighter.  Who knows.  Anyway everything else is looking better but more important, I feel better and stronger then I have in years.

  Came home and ended up having left over meatloaf.  We are going to LeMars to get a turkey today as I have to use Dan's gift certificate soon.  I have 2 more and will get a couple of hams for Christmas with them.  I am making split pea soup in the slow cooker so that can cook why we are gone.
