Happy Thanksbolognese!

Hey y'all.  First, let me go ahead and say Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! I hope you get some time to rest and enjoy your families and friends.  I was up almost half a pound when I weighed Saturday which sadly made me happy since I ate too much last weekend.  I doubt I'll be so lucky when I weigh at the end of this week considering Thanksgiving and all.  I have been pretty hard on myself mentally about the food I've been eating on the weekends but haven't been motivated to change.  I am going to do my best to struggle through the holidays without gaining too much but it's always a challenge.

Once again, I took to the crockpot for a recipe.  This time it was Bolognese sauce and I think it has been my favorite so far.  The good thing was that I could easily serve mine with zucchini noodles and whip up "real" noodles for Ian.  The other great thing was that it wasn't all that expensive and I was able to serve four people and had a ton of leftovers to last through the week. All I did was saut√© some veggies (I believe it's called the trinity with onion, celery and carrots) with turkey bacon (you could also use pancetta), add lean ground beef (that you drain), crushed tomatoes (that you add to the top of the meat mixture in the crockpot), spices etc and pop it in the crockpot.  6 hours later, you have rich, flavorful bolognese.  It was so easy and quite delicious.  Ian liked it and he didn't seem bothered at all by the veggies.

Alabama has to win Saturday against Auburn and win the SEC championship game before they officially bounce back from their one loss to Ole Miss.  I am glad football season is winding down.  Even though I love it, there's far too much temptation involved. So, Roll Tide everyone! Until next time...
