Progress Report, and Very Monday

Some leftovers are definitely better than in their original. My MINESTRONE SOUP tasted much better to me Sunday evening than it did Saturday, when I made it. And today I found the ENCHILADA CASSEROLE I made last week, when I didn't enjoy it, and it's really good for lunch. That's a nice surprise.


Breakfast--The last of the AMBROSIA (waah!) with flax seed meal

Lunch--Harry and David pear (I get these at a good discount at the outlet mall), leftover ENCHILADA CASSEROLE

Snacks--Four leftover BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH LEMON (I like these better the next day, too.), apple, half ounce of roasted peanuts

Supper--Tough to report: I made Crockpot Thai Chicken for the family (using boneless, skinless chicken breasts) and a Teriyaki veggies and noodles frozen thing, with sauce, but augmented with about a third of a head of sauteed cabbage and half a red onion. On my plate I put nearly a cup of baked spaghetti squash, and over that some of the veggie/noodle thing, and over that a couple of ounces of the Thai chicken and sauce. I had a half ounce of peanuts on the side. Sometimes it's just a tired evening and too much trouble to be persnickety. And then I am having those two bites of Toll House pie.


FOUR pounds down this week (after one pound up last week) for a total of fifteen pounds down in seven weeks. I'll take it!


  1. Congrats to you! You must be feeling wonderful AND you made it through Thanksgiving like a champ :-)

  2. Way to go Cindy. I have been meaning to chat with you on Sundays, but keep getting sucked into other conversations. Maybe we will get a chance to chat over dinner on Saturday or in the car - Perhaps I can snag you the other front seat in my van.

  3. Congratulations on the four pounds. That must have felt great after the momentary blip up the prior week.


  4. Since I'm the last to be picked up, good luck with that, Marci! But yes, we should actually get to have a conversation sometime. I wrote Pam basically the same thing earlier today. :-) We're so busy running our families' lives that we don't have much chance to just be "gals." I'm thankful for the International Dining Club! :-)

    Thanks, Alicia, and yes, it was a nice surprise!


I'd love to know what you think of these or if you have suggestions for improvements!
