We're going to be doing happy hour at the local Sushi place.

Leftovers again. We seem to have a glut of them this week.

Oh my gravy all over my two scoop rice (that's OMG! in my world )!!
K and SC I am SOOOOOO jealous of you guys just about now!
I went to Yokozuna's website ... MAN! That looks fantastic, and the prices, NICE!
We have a new Sushi/Asian Cuisine restaurant that opened up in town about a month ago, so we stopped in to look at their prices, etc ... NOPE! WAY too expensive! We took a pass and had a salad down the road a piece instead for lunch today.

It's a clean-out-the-fridge day. I finished the watermelon, chicken with mushrooms and capers, and saute-steamed a crown of broccoli. Himself wasn't hungry when I was cooking, so he gets the pick of what's left. He'll finish the shrimp with the last brioche roll, the corn and tomato salad, and then can move on to his leftover pizza from last night.

Sorry, change of plan.
My buddy and I are going to the Red Lion Tavern, very close to my house, for some Bavarian food and beer.

Sorry about the change.....

The best laid plans......Since we had one cool day today (that is, a day under 90°), I was going to use the shrimp I had and make garlic butter shrimp again. Then I was out and about and ended up at Jack in the Box for brunch, and ate almost a half jar of peanuts this afternoon. Needless to say, I'm not at all hungry now. If I am, I think I'll finish this day with some biscuits and butter, since the day's already a food loss day.

Anyway, tomorrow I'm having the shrimp for brunch and then going to the Farmer's Market (in 90° heat ) and get some peaches and 8 pounds of blueberries. I'll freeze the blueberries and then I think I'll try to diet a little. I do need to lose weight (Jack in the Box, yeah, right!).

So since I am a night owl, up to 2 and sometimes 4am, I get up at about 10am to noon, then usually eat a couple hours later. I think I'll push off brunch until about 3pm and then my new plan will be to just have a (large) serving of blueberries for supper at about 11pm or midnight, since I won't be that hungry.

So one decent meal a day and then fruit for dinner. I should lose weight on that, right? Anyway, my entries here will probably be very boring. LOL

We'll see how long this lasts.

Fast day for me. Will see if it helps with attaining Ketosis.

I hope your day of fasting helps get you back on track, Princess.

Kay, what a great sounding restaurant - the sushi menu had me drooling.

RR...the shrimp sounds delicious. And your posts are NEVER boring. I bought several pounds of peaches at our local farm stand recently too, and sure have been enjoying them.

Great sounding dinners, everyone!

OK. So here's my messy, fork-required, loaded up, open faced chili dog I had for dinner. A few SunChips and a garlicky dill pickle on the side. It was good, but it'll probably be another several years before I have another one.

Wednesday Dinner - 8/17/2016

Looks awesome. Dang it, Cheryl. I LOVE chili cheese dogs. We have a Dairy Queen nearby. Sadly, they also make good onion rings.
