I have been trying recipes from Glorious One Pot Meals, a book full of recipes for quick cook, Dutch-oven meals. Chicken Satay a week ago was great, tonight was chicken with red curry and coconut milk and that was so so.

Well, my meatballs feed on corn, I believe. They get baked or fried before taking a swim in the sauce.

I skipped that step because I'm lazy to save time, and to impart some meatball goodness into the sauce.

My sauce gets its own meatiness, being a variant of bolognese meat sauce. And my meatballs are 50% beef/50% pork.

Breakfast: coffee with sugarfree fresh creamer; oatmeal and skim milk

Lunch: tomato basil chicken (blackened chicken with very hot and spicy Cajun/Italian tomato basil sauce, thick with fresh Creole tomatos, parmesan, and more, all served over angelhair pasta); diet Coke

Dinner: Chinese pepper steak, white rice, water

All this and Weight Watchers still approves... Portion size helps!

That weightwatchers points program is great! Since January 17th, I'm down 25 pounds and DH is down 21. Its an easy program to follow and you can eat anything you want as long as you stay within your allotted points. You can't beat it IMO.

Fried cheese is highly recommended. It's easy to do if you put grated cheese inside a slice of pepper:

Herbal tea with honey
Chicken broth with matzoh balls

Thinking about having a few chocolate chip cookies that belong to Mr B, who is not here right now...I may have to invoke the "unattended cookie" rule.

I hereby agree with the "unattended cookie" rule and have invoked it myself many a times.

A slice of rye toast smeared with some Brie for breakfast, two cups of black coffee
A can of V-8 and a banana mid-morning at my desk in the office

Greek salad and chunk of fresh baguette and an unsweetened iced tea at Panera Bread for lunch

Half a personal size frozen organic pesto, broccoli and tomato pizza for dinner (pitched the other half, wouldn't appeal later), a handful of walnuts, a cup of low fat cottage cheese.

Possibly some plain yogurt and fresh blueberries later.
