We are going to an open house at DS's school tonight (school starts on Tuesday here) and they are having a picnic. Every grade is supposed to bring part of the meal (we have dessert) - I am going to bring fruit but I will also bring a wrap for myself because it is likely that there will not be any other SBD friendly food there. I am going to be totally lazy and pick one up at the store on the way there.

Probably leftover night here, we are accumulating a lot of hodge podge in the fridge. We have ground beef for taco salad, turkey meatloaf with cauliflower mashed, and lentil soup all taking up space so the kids and Dh can have their pick. I am choosing meatloaf with a little low carb ketchup for sure.

Last night was pork fajitas with whole wheat tortillas, salsa, homemade refried beans, onions, cheese and cabbage mix.

Tonight I'm making ham, asparagus pasta. It uses fat free evaporated milk with arrowroot to thicken.

lunch was just half head of romaine lettuce with 1/2 a tomato, 1/2 avocado, 10 black olives, .5oz shredded cheese, 3/4c black beans. it was soooo yummy. I think I am starting to like these salads better without the salsa and sour cream... the avocado was just fantastic!

Dinner is still up in the air... Probably a veggie burger or dog with a salad and side of some kind of veggie... Maybe I will venture into the cauliflower! lol- turning it into something else of course!

Just wanted to post that I love this thread! It produces so many great ideas for dinner!!!

rdw1 - there is an SBD friendly salsa (most homemade ones are, actually) recipe that is awesome on salads like that. It has avocados in it which really give it a dressing consistency when mixed around with the salad.

It's a grill night - japanese eggplant, summer squash, & leeks, smart sausages, one ear each of the unmentionable yellow vegetable

Last night we had fresh edamame beans :drool:

All of this stuff you guys are having sounds really good. I'm gonna have to steal some of your ideas for when I run out.

Tonight is simple, I'm making turkey cutlet parmesan. I'm making a mixture of skim milk and an egg, and dipping the turkey cutlets in it, and then dipping the turkey cutlet into parmesan cheese to coat like a breading. Then, I'm going to bake the cutlets crispy brown while I make my homemade tomato sauce. (Canned crushed tomatoes, oregano, basil, garlic, fresh parsley tonight) Then I'm gonna pour some of the tomato sauce on top, and top with freshly shredded part skim mozzarella, and bake until the cheese is melted and the sauce is hot. I'll mix in some broccoli too, broccoli with tomato sauce should be good.

That sounds great, Rdw1 :)

I haven't decided on dinner tonight - the menu calls for "goulash" - one of DS' favorite foods because it's movie night and his turn to pick dinner BUT I have rolls that are about to go bad and I kind of feel like cajun chicken paninis. I guess I'll have to see if I can talk DS' into the sandwiches.

Well I'm thinking that it is going to be a grilled steak and roasted veggies. Fridays are always a little less structured so it could end up being a rotisserie chicken if I start feeling extremely lazy.

Did not eat teh salmon as planned last night. I think I may as well just give up on fish! :shrug:
Tonight will be a grilled chicken, onion and pepper kebab with tabbouleh and the very, very last of the green beans from my garden.

Pizza night tonight, so I think I'll make myself a fajita wrap to take. That and salad, although pizza sounds good tonight, so I may scrape the cheese off of a slice.

Tonight was a friend's bday so we went to a hibachi grill... it was fab. We told them we were allergic to shrimp so they didn't cook out food with any meat ;) and I told them no rice and I also didn't have any soup. I just had salad( i think there may have been some sugar in the dressing) and I had hibachi veggies. YUM. I am feeling a bit bloated, don't knwo if its from the sodium or if its from the dressing or what... I did have 2 glasses of chardonnay with dinner as well. All in all I think I did pretty well though!

I had BLSL chicken breasts baked in the oven with various lf and ff cheeses and tomato sauce - a few spinach leaves thrown in and some fresh sliced mushrooms. I served it with WW pasta and I also had a baby spinach leaf salad for myself - no one else wanted one. I was nervous about the pasta but I feel fine.

Probably the sodium. I swell up like crazy after hibachi.

We were going to have cajun chicken ceasar sandwiches...but ended up being out around dinner time and picked up some sandwiches from our local deli. I had a Mediterranean tuna in a ww pita. Tuna, olive oil, capers, peppers....mmmm....

I had a snack for dinner cause I was out shopping with my father, so I had some cashews. Around 9pm got home, and an hour later had a SBD Meal Bar..
