Do people want to keep this going? I made up dinner menus for the week, so I thought I'd go ahead and post them:

Monday: Pork Diane
Tuesday: Shrimp and Cashew Stir Fry
Wednesday: Pork and Pepper Salad, Roasted Red Pepper Soup
Thursday: Easy Mediterranean Fish Soup
Friday: WW Pita Pizzas

And here's today's plan:
B: coffee with milk, hardboiled egg (not feeling too well)
S: another hardboiled egg, roasted red pepper and tomato soup
L: leftover Italian bake, V8
S: Celery with LCLC, extra strong latte
D: Pork Diane, Mashed Rutabagas
S: Greek yogurt with agave nectar and slivered almonds

if that helps. It gives me ideas of what might be good for supper/dinner tonight. ;)

I have posted before but I am not sure what benefit it does for me. I keep a food diary on my computer and I keep track of what I eat. I am not really sure how it would help any of you. If I lose then I know I am doing what I am supposed to be doing. If I am not, I can see it reflected in my food menu.

Your's sounds yummy Schmoodle. I made a few new things in the past four-five days.

I finally made spaghetti squash and used that instead of pasta. It really has no taste but I love the fact it is a vegetable and low calorie. Dr. A. doesn't recommend the squashs(except sparingly) because of their higher glycemic load but it didn't make me want more squash. It's really bland and not very filling on its own.

I also made four blender drinks this weekend and the whole wheat pancake recipes. All I would say is that add water to the pancake recipe. The pancakes end up being as thick as a slice of homemade bread but good otherwise. I had fun with the smoothies and no reaction. I posted one of them on here in the recipe section.

I can't speak for others, but I very much enjoy these weekly threads with menus. I use the information shared to develop my own menus and try new things! I appreciate everyone's posts here. I don't post a lot, but I read almost everything posted. I find myself eating many of the same things over and over, especially for b-fast & lunch, then trying new things for dinner.
Thanks everyone who posts here!
