i made mexican chili soup in my small crockpot. sorta followed a recipe. can of white beans with juice, can of fire roasted chopped tomatoes. green chilies.corn, onions,chopped up a cooked chicken breast thawed. garlic powder, pepper, and half pack of chili mix. tastes pretty good. still low enough in calories, if i have one serving. half piece of cornbread i also thawed. the quantities i used of each ingredients low enough in calories. i figure about 400 calories. only 260 for breakfast. i'm on a roll.

A first attempt at beef and broccoli. It was okay, but there will be changes next time. I am still working on getting the hang of velveting meat.

Well, it was 'tovers for dinner, but leftover spaghetti instead of the roast.
However, dessert was new.
Blueberry gingerbread cake with sweetened yogurt cream. 4 thumbs way up.
