Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper Look Out....

I am a HUGE advocate of Bob Harper's and Jillian Michaels' videos.  They are awesome. Our six-year-old hears me doing their workouts on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  He will also dive into a Jillian's 30 Day Shred on occasion (level 1).  He decided to take his Kurio and do his own video today.

Tangy Pot Roast

Awesome recipe for Thanksgiving.  I am not a turkey girl at all :)

3 medium potatoes, thinly sliced
1-1/3 cups thinly sliced fresh carrots
2/3 cup sliced onion
1 boneless beef chuck roast (3 pounds)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup Catalina salad dressing
1/4 cup dry red wine or beef broth

Place the potatoes, carrots, and onion in a 5-quart slow cooker.  Cut roast in half; rub with salt and pepper.  Place over vegetables. In a small bowl, combine salad dressing and red wine or broth; pour over roast.

Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or until meat is tender.  Skim fat from cooking juices.

Turkey Sausage Pizza

Adapted from Meatball Pizza by Emily Bites.
Yields 6 slices

4 oz uncooked turkey breast
pinch of garlic powder
2 teaspoons of plain, dried breadcrumbs
2 teaspoons of grated Parmesan cheese
1 3/4 teaspoons Italian seasoning, divided
1 large egg white
2 teaspoons skim milk
Spray of non-stick spray
1 Boboli 12" Whole Wheat Pizza Crust
1/2 cup pizza sauce
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine turkey breast, garlic powder, breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, and 3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning, egg white, and milk.  Using a spoon, mush all ingredients together until well-combined. Mixture will be somewhat wet.

Heat skillet over medium-heat.  Add turkey mixture to the oil and cook until browned.  (Looks like cooked hamburger or sausage mixture). Set aside.

Spread pizza sauce evenly over across the top surface, leaving at least a 1/2 inch edge around the outside.  Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the top and spread the turkey/sausage mixture across the surface. Finish the pizza by sprinkling the remaining Italian seasoning over the top.

Place pizza on foil, on a pizza stone (used), or directly onto the oven rack.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
