Whole-wheat cheese tortellini with spinach-basil pesto, handful of grape tomatoes on top. Green salad of some sort. Glass of syrah.

I haven't had pasta at all since changing the way I eat, so I'm kind of overly excited about this meal. (I really hope the pesto turns out tasty enough to please my husband.)

A large green salad from my garden plus a lean pork chop done on the BBQ with a skewer of veggies. I adore veggies done on the Barbie!

Chicken coconut curry with lots of peppers, onions, carrots, peapods, cauliflower and cilantro. I have some brown basmati cooking as we speak for a side. I can't wait!

I also need to steam some broccoli as we have a whole bunch in the crisper that is about to go bad.

Hope I can get some ideas here for tonight, no plan, eek. It's just me and DH and DD2 though. I picked up some really nice lump crabmeat at the beach and could do some crabcakes, but we ate lots of crabs over the weekend, and DD isn't a big fan.
I've got eggs, zukes, and cheese, so maybe an omelet and salad.

WarMaiden, I used to cook tons of pasta, and now I just make it occasionally. It's funny how my family gets so excited when they see spaghetti and meatballs now, they don't care a bit that it's whole wheat.

Probably Almond Crusted Chicken Parmesan with Spaghetti Squash Marinara. If hubs isn't in the mood for Italian, then we'll probably have meatloaf with broccoli and green beans. (We're still on Phase 1).

As a side note, when people ask what you're having, do you ever feel like those Lean Cuisine (?) commercials where the lady describes this delicious gourmet meal and people are shocked to find out she can eat that and lose weight? lol

I'm trying the calabacitas recipe from Kalyn's Kitchen with a mix of green & yellow squash. Maybe some refried beans, taco mix & salsa on the side.

Supper tonight is artichoke (I've never had it before so we will see how this turns out) a salad and grilled elk chops. It's so hot out you almost don't need to turn on the grill, just throw the chops on and let the AZ heat do the rest.

I tried a recipe over the weekend out of a SB Cookbook I took out at the library. Cucumber's/radishes/red onion/feta cheese with a little olive oil/red wine vinegar S&P. It was not bad, good for a break from a standard salad.

Tonight we're having Grilled Salmon Steaks with Tangy Cucumber Sauce, Steamed Broccoli, & Green Salad.

Dessert will be what I had last night, but it was REALLY GOOD: Peaches & Blueberries w/ vanilla yogurt & a cookie (SBD friendly) crumbled on top. YUMMY!!!

I won't be getting home until late, so Jake is fending for himself and I'll make myself a big salad with goat cheese, pistachios, apricots and sf dried cranberries when I get home.
