Thanks all, the soup is definitely on the docket for Sunday. I've only seen pictures of how pretty cranberry beans are, never seen them IRL. I have < 2 cups of Bob's red mill 15 (13?) bean soup mix left, and will top off the 2 c with dried chickpeas. I'm trying to use up odds and ends I already have - as I said the venison sausage was gifted to me and has been sitting in the freezer for a while, waiting for me to figure out what to do with it, and kale is in the garden ready for harvest.
Back OP yesterday, and the scale that went up has come back down.
B - 1/3 c oatmeal, cinnamon, 1/2 small banana, 1 T. dark chocolate pb, 1 c skim milk, coffee w 1 T h&h
L - 1.5 c chili, 2/3 c. frozen vegetable mix
D - pita pizza, salad w 1 T light dressing
S's - orange, 6 oz lf yogurt, homemade larabar, tea, dark chocolate vitatop
E - walked the a little over an hour, somewhere between 3-3.5 miles I'd guess
