Made the Sicilian Spaghetti Bake tonight. It says it feeds 5. How BIG are these five? I had planned on fitting everything in my largest pie plate. Ended up putting 60% of it in the plate, another 40% in a casserole dish that went right into the freezer after assembling. We still have nearly half of the larger plate and, ultimately, should end up with 7-8 generous servings. We pretty much liked it, but I will make adjustments to the original recipe to make it something we'll love. Until then, I won't have to cook for two meals.

We had haddock filets, salad with homemade vinaigrette, and boiled potatoes.

I made myself a fresh spinach salad with chopped pecans, fresh blackberries, green onion, broccoli sprouts and Asian Sesame Dressing. I had my large protein meal at lunch time.

We made hot pork sandwiches with the pork roast from last night and lightly toasted sourdough bread, coleslaw on the side.
If you don't like the food, have more wine!

Leftover broccoli cheese soup, and a cup of Cheerios with half and half.

DA wasn't feeling well, so I made my chicken soup for her and she had TWO bowls of it!! I am so very happy!

She has been tired lately but her appetite was good today. She only wanted her soup, and so I had a bit of fruit with mine: a cut up pear, a cut up red grapefruit, and a cut up honey crisp apple.

Honey crisp apples are my very favorite apples!

With love,

As usual, I wasn't very hungry around dinner time and the pork tenderloin wasn't quite thawed, so TB had some leftover chicken and I made him an herb & garlic sauce for it, with salad and potatoes.

I had some more Chinese food and some fruit.

Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffiene-free and loving it!
