We are going with the in-laws and DH's visiting cousins to a chinese restaurant. Dinner will be steamed shrimp and veggies with some brown sauce on the side to dip in and 1/3c steamed rice.

Out to dinner tonight - going to my favorite made-to-order salad place, where I'll order a tri-tip mixed greens salad with 3 oz of grilled tri-tip, 1 tbsp of their lowfat yogurt based honey mustard, carrots, roasted red pepper, broccoli, kidney beans, green beans, cucumber, and (my splurge) a few of their homemade croutons.

I LOVE that I can get healthy made-to-order salads and still go out with my friends.

Last night was spaghetti squash with the following sauce:
  • 2 jars plain no salt added Francesco Rinaldi pasta sauce
  • 1 small box frozen chopped spinach, pureed (in my Magic Bullet!)
  • 1 container each (6 per container) Italian style hot and sweet turkey sausage, casings removed
  • 1 can petite diced tomatoes (rinsed)
  • unmeasured handfuls of frozen pepper strips and chopped onion
  • crushed garlic
  • to taste: Italian seasoning, oregano, crushed red pepper
I just cook the sausage first, then add everything else to the pot and heat through--sooooo good, and a GREAT way to sneak in lots of veggies

Tonight, I have some of the sauce leftover still, so I will plop a bunch of it onto a Boboli whole-wheat pizza crust and top with reduced-fat mozzarella cheese for a very hearty pizza

Mandalinn......OMG I'm so JEALOUS!! Yet ANOTHER reason I wish I was back in California (SF): Restaurants with health-concept restaurants with creative menus! Salads are my passion!!

Dinner for me tonight was:

4 oz. orange roughy, marinated in lemon juice and sauted in PAM and a tiny bit of olive oil, and seasoned with herbs du Provence, a little fresh basil and lemon pepper.

Big Greek salad with lots of spinach, mixed greens, romaine, tomatoes, green peppers, cucumbers, red onions, and 1/8 cup reduced fat feta. Dressing was red wine, probably 1 tbsp of olive oil per person, fresh garlic, tiny bit of sea salt to grind the garlic, mint, oregano, and freshly ground black pepper. Mix the feta in with the dressing till it's a little bit creamy, and then toss everything well so it's all nicely covered. Yum!

Dessert was about a cup and a quarter of chopped watermelon.

Mine tonight will be boneless skinless chicken breast tenders baked with barbecue sauce, bacon (center cut), and Swiss cheese (thin sliced), probably served with some brown rice mixed with baby broccoli flowerets (my brain isn't properly functioning this morning--I know that word is spelled incorrectly and probably not even phonetically ).

Today my schedule allows me to have my big meal at lunch time. I absolutely love when that happens. So today's dinner (although at lunch time) will be:

3 oz. salmon fillet baked with garlic and spices, topped with a broiled sliced tomato. Served with roasted asparagus and green beans.

Sarah and Mrs. Quadcrew - so far this week, 3/6 of my main meals (dinners and lunches) have been salads. Two of the others have been soup - the wedding madness is descending rapidly and we have no time!

On that note, going out to dinner AGAIN tonight with a friend from college who is home from grad school for the week - Olive Garden, ordering the Chicken Giardino for 560 calories, getting our salad with dressing on the side, and telling them to LEAVE THE BREADSTICKS IN THE KITCHEN. If I manage to survive it, it will be COMPLETELY on-plan for the day.

I stayed on plan at the chinese restaurant last night and even passed on the wine and appetizers at the in-laws beforehand!!!!

Tonight is taco salad made with:
6oz 93% lean ground beef (pre-cooked weight)
Taco seasonings/spices
1oz rf shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3c romaine lettuce
5 scallions
1 1/2T salsa
1 1/2T rf sour cream

I chop it with one of those rectangular salad chopper blades like at the salad cafes and places in the mall food court so it all gets chopped into bite sized pieces and mixed together. Yum-O!

bizlawchick - your taco salad sounds awesome! Have you ever tried roasting extra veggies to throw in there? We just made a taco salad last week with the stuff you described, but added grilled diced zucchini and red bell peppers. It sounds weird (I always have trouble thinking of veggies that pair well with my Mexican food favorites) but the zucchini was especially good and you get more volume for fewer calories.

Great idea! I'm going to have to try that.

I also add an extra ounce of cheese when I haven't had the rest of my dairy for the day, and 9 black olives for a fat serving sometimes. It's amazing how the extra olives and cheese make it taste like it's from a restaurant. Also, when I'm not cooking for the family, I like this with two Morningstar Farms spicy black bean burgers instead of the meat.

Now I'm thinking about adding some grilled or sauteed peppers, onions and zucchini for a fajita-style taco salad! Thanks for getting me thinking. Next week's menus should be yummy.
