Hello!

Today I did something that I never thought I could do.  As yo all know, I joined a fitness group back in January.  Well this amazing group of women came together and decided to sign up for a 5K  SWAT Team Mud Run.

“Before”

This run is put on by our Local Police Department Swat Team in Mobile, Alabama.  The money raised benefits the SWAT team as well as other local Law Enforcement Departments.   I have never run anything in my life!  There were 34 obstacles that you had to go over, through or under and there was a TON of mud pits.

“Me heading over one of the walls”

People lost shoes, socks and lord knows what else.  I have never challenged myself as much as I did today.  There were 12 of us and we all worked together and cheered each other on through the hardest parts.  I am so proud of myself for this accomplishment but I am even more proud to say that I represented my Husband, Officer J. Scroggins who was on duty today and could not participate.  Thank you to the Team Hopkins Kick Fit Ladies for pushing me to be better!

Now I am headed home to rest and get some food! It has been a long day.

So I did something BIG!  I signed up for a 27 week full body challenge.  I started my diet on January 1st and started the workout group on the 3 of January.  My weight was 158.8 on the 1st.  My goal is to gain strength, to tone my body and to be more healthy.  This challenge is called the Kick start challenge and it is being held at Team Hopkins Jiu-Jitsu  in Mobile, AL.  It is so convenient because it is only 2 blocks away from my house. This makes it harder to make excuses not to show up.  The first time I went to a class everyone welcomed me into the group with open arms.  They made me feel like I had been around from the very beginning.  There is a Facebook page for our group and it is full of support, encouragement and friendship. I hope to see some results by the end of my first month.  I will let you know how things are going.

Now on another note ,this post was supposed to go out a  week ago but my computer crashed!  I mean what the hell?   So I have no photos to post until I figure it out.  I am using an old laptop to get this to you now. So don’t forget about me and keep checking in because I will do my best to get this resolved as soon as possible.

Wish me Luck!!

Until Then,

Well this morning I woke up early and headed Downtown Mobile to walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk.

I met a few of the girls that I work with and we did the 5k walk.  It was chilly and rainy but the crowd pushed through and we raised awareness for a great cause.

This walk does not have a entry fee but they ask for donations which go toward the research for a cure to Breast Cancer.

I walk in honor of my Mom who is a breast cancer survivor and for Mrs. Cindy Morris who is the Den Mother to the Mobile Police Academy.

Stephen was on Traffic Duty during the walk so it was nice to see him along the way.

We made it to the finish line and now it is time for some food and Para Norman!

So sorry that I have been MIA for a while.  I had a 3 1/2 day weekend for the Fourth Of July then last week I started feeling crappy and ended up with a Sinus infection.

I am feeling better now but still not 100%.
 So I want to get back to it and give you a great recipe for summer grilling season.  Grilled Corn on the Cob.

 This is so easy and ever so tasty.

OK so the ingredients are simple:

Corn

Salt

Water

Butter

A hot grill

So first you get your corn and peel back the green husks. Don’t pull them off, just peel them back exposing the sweat corn.

Once you get them all peeled back you will remove the Silk from the corn.  Just pull it off.

Once you have finished this you will pull the husks back up around the corn.

Place the corn in a small container that has cool water in it. Make sure to salt the water Really Well! I mean it should be SALTY!

Make sure that the corn is completely  submerged. ( I rotate the corn every once in a while.)

I usually let the corn sit in the brine for a few hours.

When you are ready to cook, just get your grill going.  Put the corn on the grill and let it cook for about 35-45 minutes.

Make sure to rotate the corn every 15 minutes or so.  You can cook what ever meat you choose, at the same time if you like.  308832dd-75d5-4a42-80f2-b43ea7781b68

Take the corn off and test to see if it’s  softness.   Peel husks off, add a big pat of butter and dig in!

YUMMMMM!

Although this is a small meal it is so yummy.  You should try the corn.  You wont be disappointed.

Until Then,

Oh my goodness what a day.

We had a nice summer storm come through this afternoon and the electricity at work went out.

Then it took forever for the computers to come back on-line. Total chaos. But all the girls at the Desk hung in and we got all the Patients signed in and to the proper waiting areas.

I was so happy to get home today because I have put together a little recipe for Fried green tomatoes.

 I have looked online for a healthy alternative to flour batter and I took bits and pieces of a few different recipes and made my own.

So her ya go.

A  healthier twist on a Good Ole Southern Favorite.

(Banting) Fried Green Tomatoes

1e427a42-8482-4cc3-8d80-083d0fb333f3

1 egg

1 tsp heavy whipping cream

2 cups almond flour/meal

1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning ( you can use salt and pep)

1 cup coconut oil

2 green tomatoes

In a shallow bowl I put the egg and cream and beat with a fork

897e7d2a-d56a-4cac-a557-58028e9ed76f

In a separate bowl I put the flour and season and mixed it well

Slice the tomatoes (terrible photo)

58e10a09-6d48-4ccc-9fd2-ac1c11dadc59

Heat the oil in a medium frying pan ( don’t get the oil too hot as it will start to smoke)

Dip the tomatoes in the egg wash then in the flour mixture, making sure that they are coated completely.

Place them in the pan and repeat with other tomatoes.

Cook on each side about 3 minutes, until golden brown, watching them to make sure that they are not burning.

Take them out and place them on a plate that has a paper towel on it to help soak some of the grease.

Let cool a little and serve with rémoulade sauce!

IMG_20160628_192924397

Confession: I did not make my rémoulade sauce tonight! I got some pre made…

These were soooo delicious! I think that we could have gone with just cutting 1 tomatoes but hey, they did not last.

So I am off to grab a book and relax before bed. More deliciousness to come.

Until Then,

Wende
