BBQ Seitan Two Ways

Spinning 
Today I was brave and hit up spin class. I figured it'd either help finally loosen up my legs or just do them in completely. Thankfully it loosened them up rather nicely.

It was a small class today. I haven't decided if I prefer the classes to be filled or almost empty. There are definitely energy level differences with different class sizes. Sometimes I think you work harder with a small class. But larger classes tend to be more fun - a little more laughter. Not that they are exactly easy mind you.

What are your thoughts? Do you prefer a full class, small class or somewhere in between? At least I didn't have to fight someone for a fan on me or to just get a bike ;-)

BBQ Dinner
Rather than going to the store after work, I went home to stretch and roll out my legs. I have a feeling I'm going to regret the decision tomorrow as it's supposed to be rainy and possibly stormy. But, I have physical therapy, which happens to be pretty close to the grocery store.

With gas prices through the roof, I thought I'd save some gas and just wait until tomorrow rather than driving back and forth twice. I do try to take care of errands all at the same time when I can. I think it saves time in the long run as well as money. Remind me of this when I complain about the rain and shopping tomorrow please.

Fresh veggies are pretty scarce at the house right about now. I did have some bell peppers, onions, and sweet potatoes though. I also had some seitan in the freezer. It's always good to keep things stashed in the freezer if you ask me.

I have been wanting BBQ lately. So, tonight was the perfect excuse to make BBQ Seitan Sandwiches since I didn't really have too many other options.

I simply sauteed bell peppers and onions then tossed in the seitan and BBQ sauce and let that heat through. And since it's a sandwich, it had to be served with bake sweet potato fries of course.
 

And then I realized I only had one sandwich bun left. Oops. I let Jason have the sandwich and I just turned mine into a hefty salad with some toasted wheat tortilla on the side.
