Default Menus for Sunday

ok, I don't know if you all enjoy me starting this thread each day but I just love to see what everyone is planning on eating or has ate that is Core and all that.
Yesterday I had planned on a certain dinner and then I ended up being out of town for the day and had to change plans. I ate at a restaurant called Machine Shed and it was 100% core!! I was so excited and so was dh (who originally dicouraged me from trying core since I do so well on flex) I got a very thick roasted pork chop, corn on the cob, wild rice! I had one piece of bread from the bread basket which was about 2 pts of my weekly pts, but all in all, I did great! And I was very satisfied.

So my menu today will have the dinner on it I was suppose to have yesterday.

B- frozen banana/strawberry smoothie
L- big salad with diced lean ham in it and avocado (I've missed avocados, they were always higher in pts than what I wanted to use, but now I can eat them again!)
D- Taco Junk with LC tortillas (each big tortilla is one pt)
S- fruit or 94% ff popcorn

what is on your menu for today?

Breakfast here on Sundays is always - Eggs, Bacon and Toast (for me that is only 7 points) - but it is a brunch type meal as we usually aren't up this early. LOL! I will probably have some fruit before then since I am up so early.

Dinner today is Pork Tenderloin, Potatoes and either corn or carrots.

ended up changing my lunch and therefore have to change dinner now... oops! LOl.. I was going to have a big salad for lunch but when I started getting ingrediants out I saw some leftover spaghetti bolognese in there and couldn't resist! LOL.. so I had that instead and it had ground lean beef and ww pasta in it so my taco junk for dinner (which also had gr. beef in it) won't be an option now unless I want to count pts for the meat, which I don't. So now dinner will be One-dish Rosemary Chicken with white beans, and it's 100% core and so so good! You can also make it with chicken breasts if you prefer white meat. I'll post the recipe:

One-Dish Rosemary Chicken and White Beans


2 tsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
8 skinless, boneless ckicken thighs (about 1 lb)
1 (14.5 oz) can stewed tomotoes, undrained
1 (15 oz) can navy beans, drained
1/4 cup pitted kalamata olives

1. Heat oil in lg skillet over med-high heat. Combine rosemary, salt, and pepper; sprinkle over one side of chicken. Place chicken in pan, seasoned side down; cook 3 min. Reduce heat to med; turn chicken. Add tomatoes and beans; cover and simmer 10 min or until chicken is done. Stir in olives.

Lunch- vegetable soup (all veg Core- homemade)

Dinner - Family dinner of roast beef with new potatoes, fresh green beans and haggis (yes you read that correctly )

OK - here goes -

No breakfast we went to McDonald's and I was going to get an egg mcmuffin and just eat the egg and canadian bacon, but they gave us a sausage/cheese/egg biscuit . . . . so I didn't eat - we were on the road. about 12:30 we got home and had to leave by 12:45, so I ate some fat free cottage cheese

When I got home again, I had to get ready to go to a picnic, but didn't want to worry about eating, so I had a baked potato w/butter spray and some enchilada soup. At the picnic I was surprised what I could eat - had corn on the cob w/spray butter, fruit, fresh tomatoes, shrimp w/cocktail sauce. I ate more than I planned, but everything was Core.
