LOVING the Spark Way of eating!

We had a GREAT reunion last night with the boys, and I even allowed myself a small serving of ice cream and one of Mary's cookies to celebrate the boys' homecoming. Tonight we're having company and a HUGE pizza party! So I'm reserving calories for our evening of fun and feasting. emoticon

Love you all, and HAPPY SATURDAY!

P.S. My dh saw my salad, and said, "Could you make me one of those." So I'm off to make my SWEETHEART a salad and split pea soup. I LOVE this guy!

    It does sound yummy! As one who likes to emphasize protein and good fats, I'd find a way to up the fat (love my homemade mayo!) and decrease the carbs a bit. You and your hubby look very cute and happy!

    You salad sounds yummy. I'd nix the egg yolk and cheese and add more mushrooms or onion. emoticon I'm an onion junkie. I love raw onion. emoticon

Hope you are having a super Saturday. emoticon

    Very yummy. You've come to use some of our favorites in moderation -- and that's what it's all about. I make a whole flatbread pizza with only one ounce (or less) of cheese and I don't feel I've been denied at all. The fact that you can weigh out 2.7 grams (.1 oz) of pecans is absolutely delightful! That's equivalent to one sugar-free werthers candy on my scale. -- I simply love my scale for such measurements. My higher calorie (and often nutritious-rich) whole foods are sometimes the garnish of life they deserve to be. Keep up the great work and enjoy that pizza tonight! Hug, hug -- Evelyn
