Cooking Light had a great recipe for Oven Fried Chicken. We love it. If anyone is interested I can post the recipe. Last night we made it with bone-in thighs (don't really like white meat, sorry) and we made the whole package of 10 thighs so that I had it for lunch at work and mostly likely will have for supper tonight.

Thanks I'll try the salad. Tonight I'll have chicken and green beans. Not sure what else yet. Then it is salad for work which will be great. Take care all.

The salad is really easy and really good. Dice watermelon in chunks, toss with feta and chopped mint. Chill in the refrigerator. When ready to serve drizzle with some good olive oil.

Last night we had pear gorgonzola pizza with a ceasar salad. Tonight we went out to dinner and I had three oysters on the half shell and shad roe and grilled vegetables. That was great.

That sounds good. I'd like the recipe for the salad. I'm making a beef stir-fry and egg rolls. Should be really good.

Have some broccoli to use, so it'll be a simple chicken-broccoli alfredo with low-fat cream of mushroom soup. I'll add a bit of water chestnuts for variety.

I posted a new recipe last night: "Colorful Vegetable Quiche" - using whater varieties of veggies are on hand can create an endless variety, and leftovers freez well. Hope you'll check it out!

CHEFSOPHIE, I'm wishing you lived close to me...that sounds delish!

I cooked some lentils today with a bit of leftover ham and some onions...so hearty and healthy. Tilapia with sweet potato and California-blend veggies for supper. Easy day in the kitchen.

After watching this very traumatizing video on CNN, www.mercyforanimals.org/calves/ , I I just cried my eyes out and I've sworn off beef for the time being. My family and I are steak eaters, but after watching this video and being reminded how cruelly our animals whose lives are sacrificed daily to give us food, are treated, for starters I've sworn off beef for now.

Tonight, I ate vegetarian and organic.

I love to buy these small baggies of Mexican pastas (I used "Estrellas" -- "little stars" tonight) and cook them up as a side dish with dinner. First heat up a pan on med-high and add about 1 TBSP or 1 1/2 TBSP of olive oil. I fry up my "estrellitas" pastas until they start to change color (tan to light brown) for about 20 - 30 seconds, then I add about 1/4 cup chopped white onion, chopped tomato, and about 3 cloves finely chopped garlic. Stir frequently for about 20 - 30 seconds.

Then I add about 1/4 cup canned, unsalted tomato sauce and fry that up in the same pan as the other ingredients for another 20-30 seconds and then immediately add about 3/4 cup cold waterr. I add freshly ground pepper, about 1 TBSP tomato based Knorr consume or your own brand, and I add about 1/2 - 3/4 cup water. Simmer for about 10-15 minutes on low heat and voila! You've just made what we call "sopa!" It's hot, brothy, tomato-y, and DELICIOUS! For an added treat, shred a little cheddar cheese on top!

We had that with a red leaf salad w/persian cucumbers, grape tomatoes and fresh mushroom, and we had some sourdough baguette! My tummy is full, I'm sleepy and I didn't go over my calories. Ah, one thing -- I used my own homemade blue cheese dressing (for the yummy recipe, check out www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo
ur
nal_individual.asp?blog_id=3795327
) for my salad and I'm only at 1603 calories today.

Sopa is fantastic. Go to your local Mexican store or in the "ethnic" section of your local supermarket and look for these little bags of Mexican pasta. They're delicious and make for a great low-cal meal! Be sure to add a salad!

p.s. If you try any of these recipes, I'd love some feedback! :) Happy meatless cooking!

My lunch entree was simple, healthy, and couldn't have been easier: I took BS breasts and cut them into large "finger" size, dipped them in olive oil, and shook off the excess. On one side, I sprinkled them with a spicy steak rub I had, and gave the other side a light dusting with salt and pepper. Baked them covered at 375 until done (about 20-25 mins).

Served 'em with half a sweet potato, carrots and radishes, and some summer squash...yum yum!
