    lindabates - I hope you have a great year!

    meredith88 - Hopefully you are feeling better tonight. :-)

    TheRealNCYankee - that was hilarious! I'm gonna go with the chicken scallopini.

    twinredheads - thanks for all the info on what you are eating and for the article you sent. That is a great deal on the Quorn products.

    raesmom1612 - how was the greek yogurt chicken?

    Hey yall it's been a hectic few days for me trying to readjust to working again... was on summer break... Dinner tonight was grilled burgers and chips.

    Shrimp (HT sale) fettuccine alfredo with homemade sauce, salad and rolls (free from a friend). YUM!

    I ended up sick most of yesterday and couldn't eat so my husband made himself a sandwich for supper while I slept on the couch all afternoon and evening :-) So tonight will be the gourmet buffet that was supposed to be last night. No cooking :-)

    Maybe chicken scallopini with lemon, white wine and caper sauce, and linguini with a side salad. Or maybe Taco Bell.

    I need in on those emails yall!!!

    Im trying to see if I can drop a few pounds here. Started a morning protein shake for breakfast, snacking on cheese sticks throughout the day and trying to incorporate something other than beef and pork in my diet. I do like the quinoa but I need more ideas.

    Tonight I decided to make chicken drumsticks in the oven using the left over "dressing" from my cucumber/onion/ greek yogurt "snack" yesterday. Fingers crossed my family likes it.

    Still have not touched the lemon pie (I swear dessert making is just fun for me) so maybe ill pull it out of the fridge tonight and set it on the counter for DH and Rae.

    I just started the diet last Saturday, so my meals might take a while to work themselves out :). I'm using Boca veggie ground crumbles tonight because I already had some in the freezer. I also picked up some Quorn products at Kroger over the weekend because they were part of the buy 5 get $5 off AND I had two $1 off coupons that Kroger had mailed to me. Ended up being only $.99 a bag when they are typically closer to $4. I used the Quorn chicken tenders in my stir fry and served it over quinoa in order to have what I thought was a well-rounded meal last night. Maybe we should email each other with menu ideas as we find them :)

    Tonight we are having Spinach and cheese quesadillas with steamed carrots on the side.

    Twinredheads - my diet has been moving in the same direction so I am definitely interested in reading about your meals. What are you using as your faux beef tonight?

  • twinredheads Aug 30, 2016

    Beef tacos or taco salad for DH and the girls. I'm attempting a pescatarian diet so mine will be a faux beef salad :)
