We made them the other night when we were in the mood for something healthy with just a slight splurge.  At least making them with turkey bacon and using fresh vegetables and avocado helps keep it clean.  Another option is to go bunless or check out Lauren’s recipe for spinach twist!

Mmmm….

I think I have had the best Valentine’s Day of my life.  Rob and I kept it low key.  We got a “quickie” workout in.

We enjoyed the entire day with Quinn and after putting her to bed, we played Yahtzee and had a few beers.
