one extra veggie (possibly green beans or wax beans)

Do you have a specific recipe you use for your deviled eggs? Those sound so good to me!

This is the one that I use. I don't know if it's been posted here.
Simple Deviled Eggs
From http://www.cyber-kitchen.com. Double or triple ingredients as needed for more servings.
2 hard boiled eggs
1 teaspoon mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon prepared mustard
Salt to taste
Cut eggs in half lengthwise. Remove yolks and mash them in a bowl with a fork. Add remaining ingredients to the yolks. When well mixed, stuff a spoonful in each of the egg white halves. Garnish with paprika. If you like more of a zing, use spicy brown mustard.

I'm going to Ruthxxx's house for lobster :D
I'm cheating somewhat with some whole wheat pasta cooked carbonara style - I am using turkey bacon rather than panchetta (sorry dh).
Most likely have salad on the side.
When I was pregnant with my dd, we went to Cape Cod on vacation and I had lobster almost every night. She cannot stand them - calls them the "big red bug".

I just had zucchini and spaghetti squash sauteed in olive oil with sauce and some of the ricotta mixture leftover from the capri chicken I made the other night. It was delicious.

I'm in my first week on, so I need help with recipes to keep me from getting bored.
Tonight I had a salad with romaine, red peppers, red onion, and radishes. Wow is that wierd, or what? I put on a can of tuna in oil (drained) and a squeeze of lemon. Dessert is Chocolate Ricotta Cheese. I bought the SB cookbook today from Amazon, so that should help. I don't want to make this an Atkins(ish) 2 weeks. Man! It's hard to find something to eat when you are used to grabbing some kind of carb!

I made Taco Bake and served it on top of salad mix with some sour cream and green onions on top of it. Even my son ate it wonderful. He said he liked it a lot better on top of the salad.

Bringing this thread back to the top because I am excited--tonight we're having lemon-mustard dump chicken, probably baked, with whatever is left in the freezer in terms of veggies! We're moving Thursday and so the cupboards are bare!!!!

I'm on phase 2. We're having Eggplant parmesan (eggplant dipped in Eggbeaters and whole wheat bread crumbs, covered with a no sugar added spaghetti sauce and baked with a little mozzarella on top). I'll serve it with whole wheat penne pasta and a couple of veggies or one veggie and a salad. It tastes as good as the version that is fried but is much healthier.
