Recipe results and other stuff...

Monday, April 22, 2013

Yesterday I made this...

And it was REALLY good. Both dh and myself give it 2 thumbs up. My favorite part... other than the golden brown, melty cheese... was that it was so different. It's not like the same ol' stuff I normally make. I didn't have quite enough spinach, and I wish I had, but aside from that, it was delicious.

Yesterday was actually a really good day all around. I stayed on plan the entire day, and had some delicious food in the process. We went to the store, and although my back was killing me when we were done, it was nice to be out of the house and doing something.

Fortunately, after some pills, my back recovered. So not only did I cook dinner, but I also cleaned up the kitchen. Now that my kitchen is all rearranged and awesome, I want to keep it clean and tidy. Mostly I have a bad habit of leaving packaging all over the counters. It drives dh insane, since he is usually the one that cleans the kitchen. But I put it all in the recycling bag yesterday, along with rinsing all the soda cans to go with it.

We ended up finding out the kitty's name is Fernando. Dh ran into the kids and their mother in the hall, and he said they thanked him over and over for taking care of Fernando. The mother asked how he did with our "killer" dog. Ginger has managed to go after that lady twice. It's like she has a vendetta against her. Fortunately it's pretty easy to pull her away from people. And oddly enough, she didn't mind Fernando. She usually hates every animal except our cat. If I didn't already love dh, I would love him now, for the way he took care of the kitty. And now the kitty is happy and safe at home with his family.

Yep, good day.

Today is going fine so far. I've logged everything into SP, just like I said I would do. My calorie intake got readjusted because I entered my true weight... 268.8... 20 lbs regained. Le sigh. But to be honest, I was afraid it might be more. I'm thinking positive, though. I lost it once, and I will lose it again. I just have to be patient and not get so frustrated with myself because of what the scale says.

Hope everyone is having a good Monday!

    Keep on pushing Cat! you can do it, just push thru those tough times!
    Good job on making a new recipe. I absolutely love so many of the awesome recipes they have on this site. I am not the main cook in our house, but some of them are so easy and fast that I have tried several and learned it is not that I don't like to cook, I just don't like to spend hours doing it!
    So glad to see you are back and determined! Keep up the great work.

    Your recipes look really good. So happy you are doing well, other than your back. Sure hope it gets to feeling better soon. Keep up the good work, one choice at a time.

    The recipe sounds good - but I doubt I can make it dairy-free, so I'll have to pass. So sad. However, I am glad you are finding healthier foods to try! That can be an adventure!

    Sorry your back hasn't been doing well. Do you ever go to a Chiropractor? Hope you get up and going 100% real soon.

    Glad to hear you found the cat's owners. It would be sad to take him to a shelter.
