Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

recipe/quick dinner

Okay for a really quick dinner that I guarantee your whole family will like:
Wal-Mart and Target both sell these. They are cheap too...like $3.97 I think--maybe $4.97.

Nutrional info:
Serving size: 4 oz & 2 tbsp. gravy
Servings per container: about 6

Calories 160
Total fat: 9 g
Cholesterol: 65 mg
Sodium: 780 mg (!!!)
Total Carbohydrate: 3g

Protien: 19 g

I realize that this isn't probably the healthiest option out there...but it's not bad and it tastes SO good and all you do is open the box and put it in the oven. It does take 2 1/2 hours to cook....so you have to plan for it...but my kids ate every bite and asked for more and I really enjoyed it as well!

and here is the recipe I said I would share with you from the Nutrition Guide:

Italian Turkey Meatloaf

1/2 c. onion, diced
2 tbsp. fat-free chicken broth, low sodium

1/2 c. breadcrumbs
1/2 c. + 2 tbsp. low-sodium, low-fat marinara sauce

2 tbsp. Italian parsley, chopped
(I used jarred garlic and dried herbs)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Saute the onions in the chicken broth until lightly browned.
3. Add the garlic and cook 5 more minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
4. In a large mixing bowl, combine onion mixtre with the ground turkey, breadcrumbs, 1/2 c. marinara sauce, basil and parsley.
5. Form mixture into a loaf. Shape and place in an ungreased loaf pan.
6. Brush with remaning 2 tbsp. marinara sauce and bake until cooked through 45 min - 1 hr.
7. Drain off fat and let cool before cuting into 8 slices.

Haven't tried those yet, but I might just have to. We do like their "Turkey Burgers" though. We grill them, and they are so yummy! Our boys even eat them and love them!
