Earlier had some angel hair spaghetti, boiled potatoes(butter-salt) , sweet potatoes, broccoli, chicken breast, and rice cooked slowly in chicken stock.
Chocolate chip cookie and an ice cream sandwich and a banana for desert.
(if you like Ice Cream Sandwiches, then eat a banana with it once....you'll be glad you did.)
drink was real pineapple juice, not from concentrate.
wow, made myself hungry writing that.
be right back....

I had liver several times as a kid didn't take to it beef tips is my favorite with rice or noodles
Some people don't. We either had to eat it as a kid or go hungry so I learned to like it. My hubby likes spinach, but I can't stand the taste or smell of it.

Nothing at the moment, but I just got an electric grill and I'm excited to try it. Hoping to try these two recipes from Web MD.

Garlic and Herb Portabella Mushrooms

WebMD Weight Loss Clinic Members: Journal as 1/2 cup "vegetables with 1 tsp fat"

4 portabella mushrooms, stems removed, rinsed and dried well

3 teaspoons olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoons diced shallots (freeze-dried diced shallots can be used)

1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic

1 1/2 teaspoons finely diced fresh basil (freeze dried can be used)

1 1/2 teaspoons finely diced fresh chives (freeze dried can be used)

Salt and pepper as desired (optional)

  • Preheat indoor grill according to manufacturer's directions.
  • Place the mushroom caps, round side down, on a plate. Add the olive oil, shallots, garlic, basil and chives to a custard cup and stir with a small spoon to blend well.
  • Spread the olive oil herb mixture evenly over the tops (the flat side) of the mushrooms with the small spoon.
  • Place mushrooms, flat side up, in grill and lower the top (if using a contact grill). Cook about 5 minutes. Serve as a side dish (sprinkle with grated cheese if desired) or as the filling in a sandwich.
Yield: 4 servings

Per serving: 50 calories, 2 g protein, 4 g carbohydrate, 3.6 g fat, 0.5 gsaturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 1 g fiber, 3 mg sodium (more if salt is added). Calories from fat: 60%.



Quick Fix Chicken Parmesan

WebMD Weight Loss Clinic Members:Journal as 1 serving "lean meat with 1 tsp fat"

2 large (or 4 small) chicken breasts, boneless and skinless

1 1/2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper as desired

1/3 to 1/2 cup bottled marinara sauce or pizza sauce

2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

2 ounces thinly sliced or shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  • Preheat indoor grill according to manufacturer's directions.
  • If using large chicken breasts, cut in half so they are half as thick, to make 4 thin breasts. Lightly coat both sides of each breast with olive oil. Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper as desired (I used about 1/4 teaspoon).
  • Add chicken breasts to the grill and lower lid if using a contact grill. Cook for about 6 minutes or until chicken is nicely brown on the outside -- and moist and fully cooked on the inside.
  • Place chicken breasts on a foil-lined toaster oven pan (if using toaster oven) or cookie sheet (if using the regular oven broiler). Top each breast with 1 1/2 tablespoons of marinara or pizza sauce, then 1/2 tablespoon of Parmesan and 1/2 ounce of thinly sliced or shredded mozzarella cheese (1/8 cup). Broil in toaster oven or regular oven until cheese is nicely melted (about 2 minutes).
  • Serve as an entrée or serve on a toasted whole-wheat bun as a sandwich.

Now you are talking...and that's what I am talking about.
Chocolate white chip, toll house, two kinds of shortbread (chocolate and vanilla) and aggression cookies here.

So that way when I get in from helping out a widow with some landscaping we can decorate them with chocolate and filling (shortbread cookies).

Takes a good bit of time for it all but...hey. it's Christmas.

I miss having cookie swaps. They are fun. Sharing recipe and cookies and friendship.
I like having the hearth the center of the home.
