My dinner last night was really, really good. Basically a vegetarian chili with lots of veggies and ww macaroni. I changed the recipe up to add more veggies. But I failed by drinking wine.

Tuesday's plan
B~nectarine
S~egg
L~leftover chili mac
S~yogurt
D~not entirely sure. DH is out of town, so it's just me and DS. We could do eggs, leftovers, pasta, etc. I think I'll let him decide. But I do plan on roasting the kale tonight--oh, perhaps burgers to go with the kale chips?

Last night's dinner was kind of a disaster. After realizing I forgot to defrost the meat for the meal I had planned, I planned to make a tofu dish instead. Then when I got home I found out the two containers of tofu in our fridge were both expired. And not just by a little, by like two months. :-/ They smelled okay but we decided to play it safe. Then I couldn't find any recipes to use the only protein I had on hand (1/2 lb ground turkey) and ended up just making pasta sauce out of it. So, calories not logged since I don't know exactly what went into it and I was too busy to bother measuring the ingredients. Oh well.

Tuesday:
B - oatmeal, flaxseed, apple, walnuts, skim milk
L - leftover spaghetti & sauce, atkins bar if necessary
D - zucchini "lasagna", slice of bread
E - 25 min doggie powerwalk this AM + 5 min swiss ball crunches

One disaster after another this week. Last night I sliced up my finger while using the mandoline to slice zucchini, which resulted in a trip to the urgent care center and dinner not getting on the table until 8:30pm (we usually go to bed at 9!). No stitches needed at least.

Wednesday:
B - oatmeal, flaxseed, apple, walnuts, skim milk
L - leftover zucchini "lasagna", atkins bar, tomato
D - beef fried rice w/veggies
E - none

So our local butcher shop had a sale on everything in the freezer last week and we bought a bunch of stuff. This included a package labeled "chicken breasts" and a package labeled "stir fry" (which is usually just beef cut into strips). When we opened the "chicken breasts" it turned out to be chicken sausage. Oops! The "stir fry" was marinated beef. Then when I was cooking it last night I was like, wait, was this even raw to begin with??? I guess that is why it was on sale.

Thursday:
B - oatmeal, flaxseed, apple, walnuts, skim milk
L - amy's tortilla casserole meal, pear
S - apple cider, banana
D - english cottage pie
E - doggie powerwalk this AM + a few crunches
