I don't know if the cow that provided the ground beef for my dinner was holy or not. I know it only had about 12% fat content (Nutri-System).

We had blackened catfish, couscous, corn on the cob and a salad.

Next time I do the catfish like this I will have to figure out how to not smoke myself out of the kitchen.

oh wow msmofit....wish I had dinner at your house!!

Husband is still out of town so I grilled a nice little steak for myself with a simple green salad. It was pretty good, but I hate eating alone. Glad he will be back tomorrow.

dinner went over great for both me & jake.
i poached 2 chix-breasts in a very highly-seasoned liquid so i could shred them.
made a sour cream sauce & a guacamole.
corn/roasted red pepper/chiles/seasonings/lard/oive oil/lime were roasted together.
smushed black bns./garlic & seasonings went into lard for smushing.
diced tomato, sliced iceberg lettuce, cheddar-jack cheese, scallions, chiles, sour cream (plain & my seasoned kind), & cilantro for a garnish.
flour tortillas & nachos, also, for compiling the stuffing items onto!
garlic abound, & cilantro, chiles, lime.
great food!

also gonna cook this last skillet-steak for a sammich for jake for his lunch.

babe,
maybe I can help, double up on low carb veggies, that is what I do. I sometimes eat a whole bag of steamed spinach without fat of any kind just vinegar. I love greens of any kind. Meat the size of the a pack of cards or back of my hand 2 oz. then I love summer tomatoes, and douse them with vinegar and pepper, So it's meat. maybe a 3 oz or small backed potato with just a tiny bit of margarine or butter and a sliced green onion and pepper just ideas. You've got a good hold on it already. The main thing is testing before and after meals and fasting and at bedtime.
