Yesterday was a pretty good day. I wasn't ever really hungry and ate fairly decently. I need to go to the grocery store and get some more fruits and vegetables. I haven't been eating as many as I should be the past couple of days.
For dinner, I made 3 bean taco soup. It was awesome! I made over a recipe I found over on SparkRecipes because the calorie calculations on the original were way off. Everyone in the family gave it a "Make again" rating. The link to my revisions to the recipe is below. I recommend this recipe! Very filling and tasty.

Then I made a desert out of the Spark cookbook. It's just okay. Nothing to get super excited about, but it was very easy so I can't complain too much.
It was dark chocolate angel food cake. I obviously can't share that exact recipe with you, but it involved a boxed angel food cake mix and unsweetened cocoa powder.
I found the addition of cocoa powder change the texture of the cake significantly. The cake also has an odd taste that I just can't put my finger on. It may have been the brand of cake mix I used. It's still edible, but it's not as good as I had imagined it would be.
Today, we are moving all the furniture from the 2 bedrooms we use in our house into the unused 3rd bedroom. I'll post about the success of that venture tomorrow.
