Bill Your original sandwich (peanut butter etc.) sounds scrumptious! If I may be nosy how many calories is in it and how do you make it re amounts of ingredients and type of bread?

I eat them on Carr's water crackers.
I eat half a can. With what's left, later, I saute some shallots (NOT scallions), garlic and capers in olive oil. Once shallots are soft, add green beans (which have been steamed and are a little crispy), add italian spices to suit, saute for a little while longer, and add maybe a splash of balsamic vinegar, and a tiny pat of butter. At the end, add in the left over sardines, mince them, and stir. This is pretty standard Italian preparation for sardines. Aside from steaming the green beans, the dish is made in under 10 minutes.

Sardines and crackers with maybe a little mustard. Grey Poupon preferred.

I mash them with up with some garlic, celery, mustard and vinegar, and roll it with a pita, one of my favorite lunches!

This is one thing that I do with sardines -- a pantry dish except for the broccoli.

Bunch broccoli, cut in bite-size pieces
1 tin sardines
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. oil from tinned sardines (if water-packed, use olive oil -- sesame oil is also good)
1 tbsp. sugar (I substitute Splenda)
1/4 tsp. hot red pepper flakes
1 clove garlic, crushed

Steam the broccoli till it's as toothsome as you like it. Meanwhile, combine soy sauce, oil, sugar, pepper flakes & garlic in a small bowl. Dump broccoli into the bowl, break up sardines into same bowl, add dressing and toss. Serve hot or cold.

Two slices whole wheat sandwich bread crusts (the ends). Toasted.
Spread peanut butter. I say 1 TBS, but it's probably more.
Stick 12 toasted, lightly salted, pecan halves on the peanut butter.
Add one banana, quartered so that it sits atop the pecans.

Don't know the calories.

Since bread crusts only appear about once a week around this kitchen, I substitute whole wheat sandwich thins (100 calories for both halves instead of the 100 calories per slice of bread).

If you don't add the banana, the peanut butter sticks to the roof of my mouth - one of the best childhood memories in the world.

A remarkably good weigh-in today. I'm down to 150, exactly, which is a loss of about a pound since last Friday.

Maybe I can see the 140s again during January, a weight I haven't seen since late last March according to my journal.

I'm attributing this to changing up my cardio and running on a treadmill twice weekly for the past two weeks.

Also no Christmas treats whatsoever, though I've eaten pineapple and guavas, my new obsession, and lots of apples.

I am ready for the holiday eating and drinking to be over . I have one more set of guests to host tomorrow and then I'm going to take a week and try to restrict my calories and restore my body. It seems that even a small overindulgence now takes a lot longer to work its way out of my system - ie I will be paying for that 3rd beer last night for days. As well as for the crackers I ate following the beer.

There are all sorts of bits of holiday treats still in the house. I think I will throw most of them away after tomorrow. I seem to be in control with the belgian chocolate and will continue to eat ONE per day until its gone. Everything else will go out. I think DH will co-operate with this. He usually wants to EAT all the leftovers but I think he's quite serious about losing weight now.

Back to work on Monday. I'm not happy about that - I've enjoyed the days that I was able to mostly hang out with DH and the cats - but DH will be down to 2 days a week and I'm losing 20% of my income by the middle of January so there isn't a chance of my taking another week off.

Glad you had a good weigh in Saef.

I'm struggling mightily. I'm worried about my family members. Dh is sick with a bad cold and dd's are both having some struggles. I'm not indulging at all but I'm sure I'm eating more and moving less. The scale is rising accordingly. I was trying hard to be under 130 at the new year but that's looking unlikely. I will have at least one very indulgent meal on January 2 to celebrate dd's bday before she leaves. I'm trying not to be self critical but not succeeding. I'm going to have to reevaluate my eating and change something.

Last eating day . All holiday food goes out in the trash after today. I have hosted all my family and several friend this past month and it's time for a break and a bit of dieting.

Our last big day is tomorrow night when several extremely competent cooks take over our kitchen and create a Cajun feast.

I am glad we're getting to the end of this. I think I've had less to drink this season than usual (good), but I have had a lot more trouble managing the cookies (bad). I've noticed some new, or should I say, old bulges making a reappearance on my waist. I don't like them any more this time than I did last time.

I will be among the legions that start off 2014 with vows to eat better; I guess the comfort is that I am also among the few that will actually do it for more than a week.

New Year's Day is my last big eating day. We celebrate 3 birthday and have lasagna.

I've been maintaining at about the same weight since we got home from our cruise. That much is good news. The bad news is the actual weight I am maintaining.

A very Happy New Year to you all!

Bulge is still winning in Silverbirch vs Bulge. I think I'm giving up butter. That doesn't sound very sure, does it? All the same, winding the clock back to look into the past tells me that when it made a reappearance in the household was when things started to go wrong. I'll give it up on bread and toast because if bread or toast cannot be eaten without butter then they are not good enough to eat. I'll still use it if it's required in a recipe (like white sauce).

Now wrestling with myself not to make buttered sourdough toast.
