This week I am reporting a total weight loss of 32 pounds. I keep expecting a slow-down in weight loss but I keep on losing!
This weekend, we celebrated a 90th birthday in the family which had me eating in a restaurant and from the freezer. So the last new recipe is Chicken and Peppers with Pasta from the Land-O-Lakes website. I used ICBINB (sorry LOL) and low fat mozzarella cheese, and only 1/2 cup of the half-n-half and 1/4 cup skim milk. This was another keeper that was nicer tasting than I expected.
I found the recipe for the stuffed pasta shells on the Betty Crocker website. It smelled wonderful and made 8 servings of 6 shells, with 4 left over so I made 7 with 6 shells and 2 with 5. I used dry alfredo mix and made it with ICBINB and skim milk. It was a little dry, so it could have used more sauce. But every one liked it and it was filling. I also used part skim ricotta and made the chicken in my usual manner. The calorie count was around 450.
I realized I had nothing Sweet and Sour on my list, but I didn’t feel like chicken or pork. But I did have a huge bag of meatballs from Costco. These are seriously delicious. So I cooked up this Taste of Home recipe for dinner.
Whoo hoo! The new flavors of Costco protein bars arrived. I ordered the peanut butter with chocolate chunks and the cinnamon roll. I tasted half of each one. I liked the cinnamon roll, but I LOVED the peanut butter (can’t say I tasted chocolate in there). But the sloppy joe was kind of small, so I could afford the 190 calories.
I whipped up a batch of English Muffin Loaves and made that Egg McMuffin Casserole, but this time I used some nice salami I got in a food basket. I thought that since I like salami and egg sandwiches, this would be great. I had a couple of slices of the other loaf for my sandwich at lunch and I just love this bread!
I had a couple of jars of Punjabi Butter Chicken cooking sauce so I cooked a 500 gram chicken breast in my usual way and chopped it up and added 2 cans of french cut green beans. I thought it was really tasty, though it was a bit spicy for some.
