Wii & Wine: A week's worth of healthy and delicious recipes with an exercise bonus

We celebrated St. Patrick's Day a week early on Sunday with a terrific meal at my sister's house.  She made a super amazing slow cooked brisket, which made for an amazing Ruben.  The Guinness gave the beef a juicy and coffee like infused flavor that was lovely.  So if you are not heading out to the bars the St Patty's day, I highly recommend the brisket dish.  Big bonus, it is also healthy!  My other recommendation is the Albarino, so refreshing.  It may just replace Sauvignon Blanc as our house white.  Most of the veggies i cooked this week were from two booths our our local Avondale farmer's market.  This is the time of year to get out there and support your local markets, everything is so fresh and beautiful.

Here you go, a week's worth of healthy and delicious menus.  Enjoy.
