DH & DD went to Stockton to watch team mates compete at States. Since they're not much into seafood, especially the shellfish kind, I decided to make the Zarzuela, Spanish Seafood soup, that I found in Raley's "something extra" (Jan/Feb/Mar 2012) edition. AMAZING! I put the recipe in my recipes, but accidentally put the recipe as 1 serving instead of six so the calorie count was astronomical. Sigh. I couldn't find a way to edit the recipe after it was submitted. Darn!
Tonight, I'm having a 'play date' with my best bud. We had planned to walk in Crissy Field, but it's pretty miserable out so we decided to go roller skating then out to late lunch early dinner at a Japanese restaurant. Since sashimi, miso soup & salad worked so well for me last week, I'm having that again. Yum!!
I still need to choose a couple of meals for this week. Time to check out the cookbook then plan grocery shopping.
I also have to train some coaches this morning. Work is never done.
There's something my doctor said to me that made an impression. She said, "Don't be afraid to go to bed a little hungry". Over the past few weeks, I took that to heart. In the past, I have always eaten dinner until I was FULL, sometimes to discomfort. I was a dedicated member of the "clean your plate club". I even went so far as to clean everyone else's plate, too! I hated seeing other people's plates having food that just got thrown away. Now, though it still bothers me, I let that food get thrown away. At restaurants, I even leave food on my plate, too. Yes, it still bothers me, but I let it go. I either take it home if it's enough to make another meal, or leave it on the table. Now, every evening, I think about whether or not I'm a little hungry before going to bed. Weird.
