Doing the pasta dish tonight, Cottage, plus a green salad. Last night I did veggies, Triscuits and hummus as I was pooped. It'll be strawberries and yogurt for dessert.

Default Good summertime fud...

Hey CyndiM--Im the new guy on the block. A wee--little girl in my neighborhood calls food---fud /so I picked it up from her. On thursday I saw lots of people coming out of a grocery store with watermelons hand-n-hand---so I bet I could guess what they were thinking. My grill needs to be repaired and Im not in the mood for that so my meal will have to be inside. Im on a diet sort of created by me and at first I didnt think I could do it but--4weeks later I dont miss the beef; the cookies; the chips or the mayo. Giving up dairy too. I did learn this week they make cottage cheese out of soy now / so I have to find it now/always a hassle but I will get it. What I did in the beginning was write down anything with protein that I ate /how much a person needs depends on there physical size. So we are all different/ no chart. Today I started adding to the list calories. I have to learn as I go along. Tonight Im having cod fish; Cannellini Beans; & zucchini; sounds good to me. Ever try whole wheat pasta? I read some of the spinach pastas arent ---100% spinach made. Anyway--Have A Very Good Day----thomas

to 3FC, Thomas. "Fud"! Cute! Thanks for the giggle.

You have posted in the South Beach Forum and it doesn't sound as if you are following that plan. Check out the rest of the Forum and you may find a place where you fit in. Perhaps Calorie Counters?

Tonight is Teriyaki halibut on the grill, cole slaw, "chinese style" green beans and WW carrot cake.

Cyndi, I haven't tried this GB recipe before but it looks very similar to ones we used to eat in Hong Kong. I will add a T of salted black beans because I have them. Avaliable only in an oriental store, as far as I know. The recipe suggests boiling the beans first, but I'm just going to add them raw after sauteeing the garlic mix since I like them crunchy.

Chinese style Green Beans
1 pound fresh green beans ,1 tablespoons scallions, chopped,4 cloves garlic, chopped,6 thin ginger slices , sesame oil to taste, agave for a touch of sweet,2 tablespoons soy sauce(I use Bronners), a bit of water to sauce it up.
Boil beans 3 minutes. Drain and plunge into cold water. Drain. Saute scallions, garlic and ginger in hot oil for 1 minute. Add agave and soy sauce, stir for a moment. Add beans and water. Reduce heat and stir-fry until beans are to your desired crunchiness. ETA-Think I'll cover the pan at the end to let the beans steam a bit

Carrot Cake
1 1/2 c grated carrot, 1 1/2 c grated zucchini, 1/2 c chopped nuts
Blend 3/4 c agave, 3 lg eggs, 1/2 c oil, 1 c plain yogurt, 1 t vanilla
mix, then add to liquids:
2 c WW flour, 2 t baking soda, 1/2 t bak powder, and spices (I have a pumpkin pie spice from Spice Hunter) or 2 t cinnamon and 2 t allspice.
Blend carrot/nut mix to batter and bake at 350 for 35 min.

Since I bake at very high altitude (7500 ft), I encourage you to watch your cake carefully and adjust your baking time accordingly. I make mine in a 9x12 but would work in 2 9" rounds.

Frosting: 1 8 oz pkg rf cream cheese, or neufatchel. Blend and add agave to sweeten and a little vanilla extract. I used ff cc and wasn't thrilled at the taste by itself, but once on the cake it was fine. The cake moistened after sitting overnight.

Hey! How about posting the recipes in the Recipe Section as well? I'd hate to lose them when this thread ages off.

Dinner tonight? Roast turkey with gravy and dressing, ham, mashed potatoes, cole slaw, mixed vegetables, rolls, mixed sweet pickles, baked beans and an assortment of home made pies! Real FOOD PORN!

I think I'll come home after we clean up and do a tofu and veggie stir-fry.

The Island Cousins are coming for an early lunch today - veggie dogs (don't tell them!), raw veggies and strawberries with ice cream for those that indulge.

Dinner sounds like a gut bomb! Glad to hear your going to stir fry. I guess I will branch out and post a few recipes on the recipe thread. Think I'll try the green beans first.

Debbie, your carrot cake recipe sounds very similar to mine. I always add zucchini to mine, too. I make a frosting with SF instant cheesecake pudding, FF Cool Whip and LF cream cheese. Thanks for sharing your recipes with us.

Ruth, I'll be thinking of you, sitting down to that big turkey feast this afternoon.

Jake is grilling hamburgers on the BBQ for any carnivores that show up for supper, and I'm having felafel with raita and a Greek pasta salad. Dessert is food porn - leftover blueberry cobbler and maybe an ice cream cake for the birthday boy if they come over.

Hoo-ey do I ever have to get myself back on track after this past vacation week!

I knew this would happen - we are having stroganoff with chicken seitan and mushrooms over spiraled zucchini. It's cool enough to make a loaf of whole grain bread too.

Not very summery, but DD requested spaghetti and meatballs, and I try to encourage them to come up with dinner ideas (I get sick of being the only one doing it), so I will comply. I think I'll skip the pasta and put mine over zukes (wish I had one of those spiral thingies).

Tonight's supper was a Boca Bruscetta Burger patty over salad greens with a drizzle of Ranch dressing.

My best so far.. (i've only been back on it a week) was a grilled sirloin with a grilled tomato/yellow bell pepper relish with fresh basil in it and fresh summer squash lightly steamed with a little 2% cheddar cheese drizzled over it. i cooked it while I was eating lunch and then took it to work with me and reheated it (I actually took the squash raw and it steamed while the steak and relish were heating) MMmmmmmmm my hubby told me to not lose that recipe!

Going to make a frittata made out of yesterday's leftover sliced turkey cutlet/veggie mixture along with salad and fresh fruit.
