Been listing last three items to make sure cholesterol #s are within ranges, sodium's not too high (which many people's are, especially if they eat fast food) & I eat enough potassium, which most people don't--including me before I started tracking it.

Tonight's dinner was mashed cauliflower & potatoes, Coach Nicole's Vegetarian 'Meat Loaf,' sautéed Brussels sprouts & cantalope.
It was a bit on the high end, calorie-wise, but I logged everything into my Nutrition Tracker ahead of time, so was within my limits. Still, you could eat half the cauliflower/potatoes & meat loaf to save almost 190 calories. It was good, tho'!

Am leaving this afternoon for Portland, OR to visit my son, whom I haven't seen since last Christmas. He recently moved there; I've never been, so we're both excited for the visit. Should be a busy time: visiting a few high school classmates, celebrating a vegetarian Thanksgiving after running a 5K turkey trot & celebrating BOTH our birthdays--his tomorrow, mine Sunday.
And my friend/landlady has a daughter there, so we're both flying out together. And the FINAL kicker: found a Bloomspot coupon (like Groupon) for a limo ride to airport, so instead of taking trains/el into O'Hare, we'll each pay under $20 for a ride there.

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 recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.asp?recipe=1249865 & topped with 1 tsp or so of Greek yogurt & parsley; the other was Chef Meg's loaded potato soup file:///Users/owner1/Desktop/Documen
%20Soup.webarchive 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.
