|Welcome to Dallas Tyron Smith!|
|Studying up for the draft|
Kyle has followed the draft along with his cousin and Uncle Mike practically his entire life. With a very low error margin he can tell you what college most NFL players went to, which I think it pretty impressive.
|King of the Draft!|
The NFL draft is the kind of event that makes you want wings, chips, pizza, burgers, and all the yummy things we equate with game day. But we live in a Fit2Flex kinda household so I needed to design a Draft night menu that felt like a game day favorite with a much lower caloric cost.
Kyle said he wanted chips and salsa. I didn't want to go up a pant size so I created a 4 layer turkey taco dip and served it with baked chips. We had raw bell pepper on the side and our usual water with lemon to drink.
The dip was fantastic and healthy! I consciously didn't add any cheese or sour cream and it honestly wasn't missed. Kyle said you could really taste the flavors of the other ingredients. Why thank you!
I had the BRILLIANT idea to try to add in some healthy physical fitness during the draft. I thought I should do push-ups and sit-ups corresponding to each draft pick. So 1 for Cam, 2 for Von....and so on. Can you guess how long that lasted? Uh to about pick 3! haha! The best laid plans of mice and men....
Here's the down-low on the easy layered taco dip. Try it for a party or any weeknight dinner.
|I only had one avocado so technically it's a 3 1/2 layer dip.|
Cuatro Layer Turkey Taco Dip
Layer 1- Fat-Free Refried Black Beans
Layer 2- Jennie-O Extra Lean turkey breast and low sodium taco seasoning
Layer 3- Herdez salsa
Layer 4- Homemade guacamole*
Serve with baked Tostitos scoops and enjoy!
*To make guacamole simply mix 1 ripe avocado with 1t lemon juice, 1t hot sauce, 1T salsa, and a dash of salt.
Today's lunch included leftover dip and chips with some steamed green beans.
We are anxiously awaiting the second round of the draft.
MY Chargers have 2 second round picks and the Cowboys have one picking 7th.
If Jerry Jones is among my blog followers, (I mean I have 7 legit followers so the odds are pretty high) we would like to further express our opinion that the Cowboys have an urgent need to strengthen their secondary. Thanks Mr. Jones. I can't take another season of Mike Jenkins 45+ yards in interference penalties each game!
Love and Super Bowl Dreams,
Carissa & Kyle
