So Tony’s doctor appointment went as well as we could have expected. Now we wait three more weeks (without antibiotics) and then he goes back. They will take fluid from his knee and make sure the infection is gone. We have a standing date at the end of March to have his knee replaced, so fingers crossed everything works out!
So no pics of breakfast or lunch – pretty uneventful. I had an english muffin for breakfast and for lunch I packed sandwiches for us – mine was a buffalo chicken pita with pretzels on the side and a diet Mr. Pibb. We actually ate lunch on the car ride home from the doctor!
But, as we were driving home I remembered that there was a place by my office that has THE MOST AMAZING popcorn in the world. I decided we deserved a treat! Its a sub shop, but right next to it is an old fashioned movie theater that only plays one movie at a time. You can buy your popcorn (and sandwiches as big as your head) and bring them to the movie.
The best combo ever: cheese popcorn with caramel corn. 1 ounce serving is 140 calories and 7 grams of fat, but so worth it!
So Brandi picked spinach as the BSI ingredient this week. Luckily I had spinach lasagna on the menu – only on half though because Tony doesn’t like it! It should be interesting. I didn’t really follow a recipe (yikes!). I added diced tomatoes to the remainder of my Italian Sunday Gravy and then pureed it all together for my sauce layer. Then it was a 15 ounce carton of fat free ricotta mixed with1/2 cup egg whites, Italian seasoning and minced garlic. The top is a combo of mozzarella and fresh shredded parmesan cheese.
I use no bake noodles which saves a ton of time. Then bake at 350 for 45 minutes. If the cheese isn’t browned, I usually pop it under the broiler for a few minutes.
All together before hitting the oven:
And Judy from Judy’s Kitchen bestowed two awards to me! Thanks Judy, that was so sweet!
Off to clean up my mess from making lasagna – the finished pics will be up tonight!
