What's Cooking? Sunday, June 28th

Today I'm making both some TVP cabbage rolls for the husband, and pork ones for me. No tomatoes here. It's all about the sauerkraut in this house. Well, it has to be, or my husband won't eat them. They have to be made the way his German mother makes 'em. /sigh They are the only thing the woman can cook (her idea of Thanksgiving dinner is an overcooked turkey, plain mashed sweet potatoes with no butter, no cream or anything, plain frozen corn and scalloped potatoes out of the box). She's a mean baker, though. Which is fine with me, 'cos that's not my thing at all.

What's going on in your kitchen?

Ham and bean soup. I found a little bit of ham in the freezer, and am just going to open a can of cannellini beans, rinse them, and replace the liquid with low sodium chicken broth. A little leftover quinoa, and some chopped carrots and onion from the farmers market will doctor it up a little. I'm out of spinach and kale, or I'd use that, too.

A couple of fresh peaches for dessert.

I am doing something I never, ever thought I would ever do. This is totally against all I believe regarding eating properly. I am cooking for and following a high protein, low carbohydrate type of diet. It has taken me over a year to decide to do this but, I have relented to accommodate DH's desire to lose weight. He has done this diet twice in the past and has lost weight following it; the last time he lost 50 pounds. I would really like to see him lose at least 20 more pounds. He has already lost 11 pounds in three weeks. I have lost 7 pounds. This diet allows one day of week of eating whatever you want. Sunday's are our free day. Which is a long way of saying I am making PIZZA for dinner.

I'm having this tonight. I am also test driving a couple of different ways to make broccoli today for another recipe. This was one of the recipes I made for the food photographer on Wednesday. She makes what I cook look so good.

If that doesn't work try www.myfitnesspal.com it worked for me. It is basically a calorie and fitness logging tool. You can eat whatever you want but you have to exercise portion control. The last time I was on there I lost a stack of weight and really tightened up, and after the first week I found it so darned easy I wished I had done it years ago.
I love the way you can enter in the ingredients of a recipe and it calculates the nutritional value of the meal.

103F on my back porch this afternoon. Unheard of in June. Grilled chicken breasts and threw together an orzo salad with marinated artichoke hearts, fresh herbs, olives, sun dried tomatoes, a little feta and odds and ends of vegies that needed to be used.
