My Family Salts Ham

Saturday, March 30, 2013

Dinner at my grandmother's today...

Scalloped Potatoes
Green Bean Cassarole (she makes hers w/ green beans, mushroom soup and velveeta)
Pickled Eggs and Beets
Cole Slaw
Baked Corn
Baked Pineapple

Angel Food Cake
Fresh Sliced Strawberries
Ice Cream
Homemade chocolate peanut butter topping

Lots of good stuff to choose from. I had...
3oz of ham
1/4 cup of baked corn
1/4 cup of green bean cassarole
Literally 1 bite of a roll (my boyfriend finished it)

For desert, I had...
a thin slice of Angel Food Cake
about 2 tablespoons of baked pineapple

All in all, I was pleased with myself for not being a pig. Eating holiday dinners with my family is easy because if I get the urge to eat something "bad" my mother will step in and say "Do you really want to eat that?"

I am very lucky to have a mother like her.

I am the only person in my family that doesn't use a salt shaker. My mother actually salts her ham... WTH?

All in all it has been a good day. I ordered some new tshirts, which I will post pics of when they arrive. I love Tshirts. I buy all sorts of them.

I think that is all for now!

    Congratulations on being able to choose wisely, and stick with it! I'm hoping I have as good of a result today. I'm allowed ONE meal today (besides shakes), and I'm choosing dinner with my daughter's inlaws. Church is having a breakfast, that I'm helping serve, but, I'm going to try, mightily, to NOT munch!

    I hear ya on the salt shaker! Until my hubby blew his aorta, salt was a HUGE fighting issue with us! When I first met him, he blew my Mom's mind out when she served steak (which she salted while cooking) and he poured salt on one side until it was white, then flipped it over and salted it AGAIN! Like the nutritionist told him, salt, and sugar, are addictive. You have to be conscious of what you are doing with those shakers!

    I also come from a family that salts everything before tasting a bite. Crazy.

    You did a great job! As a former salt addict, I can imagine salting ham, but no longer do so! Happy Easter!
