We had Lobster macaroni & cheese . My So fell in love with it so now I have recreated the recipe at home .One of the nice things about retirement is time to experiment with new recipes.

I had lemon chicken soup and the mango chicken salad in a wrap, which came with a side of broccoli and cranberry salad. Delicious and healthy!

It is. This was my first time at this restaurant. I am fortunate to live in a wine region with an abundance of good eateries. But I quite agree, one of the pleasures of ER is having the time to be more creative with home cooking. If you would care to share your Lobster Mac and Cheese recipe…..?

Today, I had a lunch sandwich with the head cheese and pâté. Am now looking at some recipes to make jambalaya with the tasso ham for dinner. I also have on hand some hot sausage links for the jambalaya. Life is good!
Tasso? Lucky you! we made a sweet potato Tasso soup last week that was beyond yummy

I don't do this often but today...

1. 1 lb of frozen lima beans smothered in butter. Well, I cooked 'em first. Yes, I ate the whole bag.
2. 1 Golden Delicious apple. Might get another one later.

That's it.

So, I got curious as I do not eat lima beans that often. Must have been years since I ate them, as I cannot remember that last time...

Anyway, I have to look it up. A pound or 454 grams of lima beans has surprisingly very few calories. It's just 504 calories, and that comes from 93 g of carb, 35 g of protein. It has 31 g of fiber, and 0 g of fat. But it has also 0, absolutely 0 vitamins, and 2.3 g of potassium.

Of course, there's the calories from the butter. Still, that would not add up to the calories I normally have just for lunch. I am a BIG eater, and can stay relatively thin. Must be high metabolic rate, as I sleep with a portable fan blowing on me or at least my face year round, including in the winter.

Interesting bit of knowledge from public TV broadcast.....I drink diet coke to save the calories.....big gulp before lunch, 12 oz most evenings....saving around 300 calories each day compared to regular coke. Then the public tv show about food advised me that the artificial sweetener in diet drinks creates a craving for sugar......and, I've always said I get my most hungry after I finish dinner......didn't know why. So, yesterday I switched from diet soda to water with lemon and I was amazed......my hunger after dinner almost disappeared. Today, I've avoided diet soda as well and I really am less hungry. I've always fought gaining weight but really got serious when I became a pre diabetic a few years ago. This one change appears to really help control hunger which will help me enjoy every meal more since I'll be able to eat a little less and won't have the nightime urge to snack as much. Actually, my blog would be better for "what I didn't eat today" but this change is so simple and healthy, I just wanted to share it for all of the type 2 and pre diabetics that might benefit as I have from this change.

Breakfast: Wheat toast w/margarine and 'homemade' green juice (I call it drinking my vegetables)

Lunch: Leftover chile rellanos casserole from last night, plus an apple. Really good Cooking Light recipe, which I made vegetarian by just leaving out the chicken: 1995: Chiles Rellenos Casserole < Cooking Light's 25 Best Recipes Ever - Cooking Light
I roasted poblano chiles rather than buying canned.

Dinner: Vegetarian chili made with a bottle of beer (good stuff!) and topped with sour cream & cilantro, salad and cornbread. Strawberries for dessert.

Breakfast: coffee with h/h and coconut oil, 2 eggs, 2 bacon

Lunch: 1/2 cup full fat yogurt w/pecans, cinnamon and flax seed

Dinner 1.5 brats, salad with oil/vinegar

1274 calories, 28 carbs

Been doing atkins for 4 weeks and lost 15 lbs so far. I know it's not the best, but this is the 4th time I've done it in the past 10 years and it simply works. My Triglycerides were 244 at last checkup and I'm sure they'll be down significantly at the next bloodwork.
