Evertime you say "Mr. B", I think of the late great Billy Eckstein, sometimes called Mr. B. He wore very stylish clothing, and a certain type of wide spread shirt collar that he wore with those very slim ties became known as the Mr.B collar. (I read that he designed and promoted this style). Anyway, if your Mr B is anywhere near as cool as the original, you have hit paydirt.

Yesterday, I had oatmeal with raisins and cinnamon and coffee for breakfast. Lunch was an apple and some mixed nuts. Dinner was a bowl of chili with a slice of whole grain bread and my dessert was grapes, vanilla yogurt and Kashi Go Lean Crunch.

I am glad that I resurrected this thread. I enjoy seeing what other people eat and it makes me think, Oh Yeah, I need to make some of that. Other foods I am curious about the taste, since I have never eaten it. I need to go back to the Recipe thread and try some of your recipes. Some of them looked so tasty!

Breakfast: Toasted bagel with Philly cream cheese and a couple cups o' coffee.

Lunch: Pastrami on pumpernickel bread, a banana, and a glass o' milk.

Dinner: We're going to the neighborhood restaurant for broiled steaks with sauteed 'shrooms, baked taters, very large tossed salads with v&o dressing, iced tea, and cake & ice cream!

And my typical snacks of nuts, apple sauce, a tangerine or two, a glass of tomato juice, and I already had my banana.

Breakfast: Nothing but orange juice and coffee. Had the coffee on the way to the golf course.

Lunch: No lunch, just a pack of cheese crackers on the course.

Dinner: DW tried something different. She gets tired of cooking and we were talking about doing something that would be easier. The other day at the store we bought a 16oz pack of prepared sirloin tips. Just had to heat them in the microwave. $7.00 Also purchased a pack of fresh pasta
(linguini) $2.70. She added a small can of sliced mushrooms and we were good to go. Have to try a little better seasoning to make this work right but it was very good for about $11.

Of course, I do the cleanup and that wasn't much easier. Overall, I think we're onto something that we will do a couple times a week. In the case where they had the beef tips, there were many other dishes to try like meat loaf, mashed potatoes, chicken. We're going to try these other things also. This was Publix's supermarket and they had a variety of their own prepared dishes we will be trying.

That orange metamucil is really good if made with about one quarter cranberry juice substituted for some of the water.

We really do like to share, huh?

Anyway, I just put two big, live crabs in the pot for a nice Valentines dinner. They were nice and fresh, and fighting for their lives.

I made some Carbquik brownies and some chocolates also. Plus I gave Lena some Chocoperfection bars for V day.

Breakfast: Bran flakes and blueberries and coffee
Lunch: Peanut butter sandwich and an orange andcoffee
Dinner: 2 slices of Sam's Club pizza and a beer (I think the next time that my DH wants pizza from Sam's Club, I will have him get a couple of slices and I will have cereal or eggs. Not a huge fan of the pizza.) Also, had some mixed nuts for a snack.
