Default What I really bought

I didn't get every thing on my list and I got a few things (ricotta cheese and canteloupe) that don't show up in the recipes. I also don'g have much of a spice rack and what I have is years old.

I just bought my first ever real parmesan cheese chunk. It DOES taste better then the powder in a can and I think you use less since it is hard work to shave a whole ounce off.

I bought 10 boxes of whole wheat pasta-more then a years supply, for $1 a box. Safeway usually has them for $2-3. I bought too much laughing cow cheese-it's really for later and then is a snack.

I bought frozen chicken breasts for $1.79 a pound and monkfish for $18 a pound.HUH Still I paid 8.45 for the fish and got at least two probably 3 servings.

I also bought Wheat thins(what an oxymoron name)Fiber selects 5grain crackers. 13 crackers=120cal with 5g fiber. But crackers portions can be deadly to me.

Anyway- My fridge is full my pantry is much better-now I need to get cooking.

Default what I cooked

I made a whole wheat spaghetti with portabello mushrooms and ground turkey.
Hard to decide what to use for a portion size. It fit on the plate-thats all I'm sayin'

I had shrimp the other night- seafood allows a larger portion for the calories involved. When you don't drown things in tartar sauce the calories are under 250 for the full dinner.

Hi 2Bees, it sounds like you're off to a great start!

I agree, the Sonoma portions are subjective. I've addressed this by following another diet's portion sizes (the ADA diet, I think) and got a good feel for how that looks on the plate. I'd measure every meal for a few days/weeks, and then I'd eyeball it after, going back to measuring every now and then just to make sure portions don't get inflated.

A note on spices/herbs - old ones, just use a little more (if they're dried). They don't tend to go bad, in my experience, just lose a little potency. I also mix my own spice blends (lemon-pepper, italian, etc) following internet recipes. Have you ever grown an herb garden? I've started one this year, but haven't gotten into the habit of picking them regularly yet.
