Last night, as the major part of my meal I had two different soups, & on the advice of a friend, I served it "like a fancy restaurant would," altho' I had no clue what that meant. In any case, I fixed butternut squash and apple soup
& topped with 1 tsp or so of Greek yogurt & parsley; the other was Chef Meg's loaded potato soup file:///Users/owner1/Desktop/Documen
topped with about 1 tsp sour cream, 1 tbsp Mexican blend shredded cheese, chives & 1/2 tsp of bacos. A good ladle-ful of each soup.

    Mmm...great time of year for soup!
I saw in my email that you had posted a blog, and I was very much excited, thought to myself "Oooo Gingervista ate something pretty today!" :)

Tonight's dinner.....probably should have posted food on Nutrition Tracker BEFORE I ate it, but still.....I stayed within my nutrition guidelines.
Vegetarian black bean cakes w/orange-basil salsa
Chef Meg's roasted root vegetables (I had two servings; next time I'd probably only have one, saving 82 cal), steamed broccoli & partially defrosted mixed fruit w/1 tbsp Greek yogurt & cinnamon.

    The cantaloupe looks especially yummy! I've had such a hard time finding good melons in our area lately (good and inexpensive I should add!)

    Sounds yummy but it has to have a typo of 3332 calories? Otherwise that is one monster smoothie. LOL
