I'm making shrimp fried rice.

2 cups of shrimp
4 cups of brown rice
1/4 cup onions
1/2 cup peas
1/2 cup diced carrots
1 clove garlic diced
4 medium eggs
soy sauce
tiny bit of oil

Cook your rice, put all veggies in a pan and saute, add the shrimp, rice and eggs and cook with soy sauce (or whatever sauce you want!) until flavors meld :)

This will feed all five people in my family with leftovers. It's about 190 calories a cup and over 17 grams of protein.

Now how about YOU?

Crock Pot Cheeseburgers

1.5 lbs ground turkey (or lean beef)

2 tblspoons milk

Brown meat, mix garlic powder and onions. Transfer into 5-6 qt crock pot, add cheese (cubed) and milk cook on low for 5-6 hours. then put on toasted wheat bun or bread of your choice. (it's hearty, i only eat half) but most of the cals come from the bun, i usually just eat half of a bun.

I was gonna make fish tacos until I saw BeverlyJoy's post - now I think it will be Zucchini Spaghetti. But I will need to find something else to add to it since that would still leave me about 400 calories short for the day.

So glad you make fried rice, cfmama - I make it all the time and it's one of my "wow, I can't believe this is a healthy meal" meals. I usually make it with ground turkey or tofu as the main protein (plus an egg or two) and toss in just about whatever vegetable I have in the house that needs to get used - onions, celery, peas, celery, peppers - I have even put in chopped broccoli.

Tonight, I think I'll make sauteed okra and onions, and serve it over a small portion of pasta, with some nabulsi (delicious middle-eastern cheese, only 80 calories an ounce) shredded on top.

Wow, those Crock Pot Cheeseburgers sound incredibly yummy!! I'll be having red beans and rice!

1/2 can kidney beans
1/2 cup instant rice
1/4 cup salsa fresca
Then I stir in cajun seasonings and water to fill the pot and simmer to the right consistency! Simple and yummy.

I am herb challenged so I am trying to learn how to use herbs more in my cooking. Tonight I tried an experiment with McCormick Recipe Inspirations Rosemary Roasted Chicken with Potatoes (http://www.mccormick.com/Products/Herbs-and-Spices/Recipe%20Inspirations/Rosemary-Roasted-Chicken-with-Potatoes.aspx) and saluted cabbage. The family enjoyed it so I think it was a success.

Mine was a hit, too! It was soooooo good. Very hearty and filling, and so freaking nutritious (Kale! Carrots! Tomatoes! Fiber-rich beans and veggies!).

A definite replay for future menus...and I get to eat it for lunch tomorrow. Hooray! (we don't have kids to fight over our leftovers).
