I'm actually really enjoying eating even healthier than before. It's been over a week now and though the pounds haven't all jumped over board (lol, do I wish!) I do feel like I have more energy, which is a huge plus!

Tonight I had a can of low-fat beans in tomato sauce to which I added just a tiny pinch of hot chilli flakes, 1/4 an English cucumber and a little bit of whole wheat grainery bread to dip in the beans. It was actually a really delicious meal

I do often fix stuff like this for my friends/family! I don't mind in the least taking a long time over it, I find cooking very soothing...but tonight it's for a girlfriend I haven't seen in a while.

long drive in early this AM so haven't really thought of dinner yet.
In the freezer, I have 3 (1 pound) foil prepared bags/containers of seasoned cooked ground beef. I'm thinking of taking it out to defrost, and mixing it in a sauce of cream of celery soup using 1/2 milk to dilute and half sour cream. Cooking it all together, and pouring it over wide buttered noodles. Spinach in olive oil/garlic/lemon/parmesan cheese/s&p. Out of the freezer can also come the rest of the Sally Lunn's biscuits I made.

Sounds maybe a bit boring, but hearty and filling and warm on a ''promising to be'' cold night.

OR, I'm going to Afreet's house.......just read your dinner post! Yummo!

Baked Brie in puff pastry with pecans, bourbon, and brown sugar, with apple slices and crackers for serving

The holiday visitors have come and gone and I'm back to cooking for two.

I miss my gas grill. It is on the back porch under a tarp. Everytime I think about using the grill, it decides to storm. So, I have been using the grill pan and the GF grill.

For dinner I had tacos with all the toppings.

My mom/dad's car has been misbehaving, so I was chauffer today to take the car to the shop 55 miles away. It was a looooonnnnnggggg day but I came home with some pork chops. Hubby grilled them and I made a cheesy grits casserole to go with. That was it - with a glass of wine! Long day and I'm ready to call it a night!!
