Hubby's day off so I actually got to cook a meal. I found out this week I have to watch my cholesterol (on top of everything else) and DH has an ulcer so I am trying to cook great within our diet guidelines.

I made chicken just seasoned with a bit of salt and white pepper, seared and finished off in the oven. I served it with steamed veggies and rice. For dessert I took fat free/sugar free instant pudding made with skim milk and layered it with sliced bananas and a sauce made out of a little bit of white chocolate and skim milk. It all actually tasted wonderful!!!!

Banquet Pot Pies with mashed potatos and crab salad.

Very yummy, if I don't say so myself.

This was our dinner last night. Breaded chicken breast (with seasoned, homemade cornbread crumbs) topped with sliced onion, tomato and green onion...mashed taters and beets (just butter, salt-n-pepper).

Alix, he wanted butter, salt, pepper.... they were awesome, though. I'll fix them for myself next time, using your vinegar and lemon juice idea!

LP - High cholesterol? been there.. I know it sounds cliche but I got mine down by eating oatmeal for breaksfast every day, I mix in my own REAL Maple syrup, brown sugar, cinnamon, or appels, blueberries, etc. I thought it would get boring, but it just forced me to get creative.

I also snacked on a cereal mix at night when I wanted something. I used the whole- grain cereals for the mix like Honey nut cheerios, mutli-grain cheerios, and cinammon toast crunch, and mixed nuts.

Of course I had to watch my weaknesses like cheese and ice cream, but I just limit those now.

I'm pulling for ya!

Thanks, Dave, both for the tips and the encouragement. I make my own kind of granola - have done so for years because I have to watch other things - and I use a small amount of pure maple syrup in it. That can be my snacks! I love oatmeal and may just try that as well.

I will get through this - I just have to tell myself that if I can get through this leg mess I can handle ANYTHING!!!!!
