Mary, Hi! I read about your trip over on Golden Girls. I live near Edwards AFB, only I think the desert is nicer where we are.
My husband is a picky eater. I usually fix something for me that includes the protein or meat part of the meal and jazz it up with seasonings and extra veggies. That way, I am not making two entire separate meals.
You might like to read one of Barbara Rolls' books on Volumetric eating. She basically tells how to get the most bang for the buck from your food, calorie-wise.
I ate lots of fruit and veggies today. The trouble is, I ate quite a few Ritz crackers, too. Somehow, I couldn't stand to work on my taxes without a snack. I guess it's OK once a year.
I made chicken noodle soup for supper. Jerry had his plain. I added sugar snap peas, fresh ginger, minced onion, minced parsley, and a splash of lemon juice. It was yummy and very Asian tasting.
