So today was March birthday celebrations at my office. Turns out I have a March birthday coming up too (you’ll just have to wait and see!) so I was in charge of cutting the cake. At one glance I quickly went to my desk and looked up how many calories it would be/units of insulin and immediately decided this wasn’t insulin worthy! I would have had to take 12 units of insulin just for one piece of cake! Everyone said it was amazing though!
Okay, so night #1 of the Grocery Challenge! And while I had patty melts on the brain, when I got home I realized that I didn’t have bread big enough, so I went with sesame rolls that I had in the pantry. Each roll weighed 3.5 ounces, so I took most of the breading out of mine to make it only 1.5 ounces.
The oven fries turned out perfectly!
My plate was 1.5 ounces sesame bun, 4 ounce burger, .6 ounce muenster cheese, dill pickles and 2 ounces of oven fries (with jalapeno ketchup!)
I am so excited about the soup I made for lunch tomorrow! I call it Chinese Food Thai Noodle Soup! My friend at work is going to love this – just the right amount of spice! You’ll have to wait until tomorrow at lunch for the recipe and pics though! 😀
I will show you that it has a teaspoon of this in it:
Gas Can Olive Oil
So when Tony and I first met, one of the first dishes he made for me was pasta. Now mind you, I had just lost 74 pounds on Weight Watchers right before I met Tony. I went from a size 18/20 to a size 6/8. I weighed all my food (even before being diabetic!) and was very conscious of my portion sizes.
Well Tony is cooking in my kitchen and he says:
Tony: “Where’s your olive oil?”
Biz: “In the cabinet above the stove.”
Tony: “I don’t see it!”
Biz: “It’s on the front right side.”
At which point he brings in a 6 ounce bottle of Bertoli olive oil and says:
“This is all you have??”
Biz: “Yes, I think its about a year old, but it should be okay!”
The next day this is what I find in that same cabinet!
Thanks for introducing me to the gas can of olive oil Tony! Before y0u I never would have known this would existed! Well that and polenta, risotto, prosciutto, good quality Italian salami . . .
Off to relax and clean up my soup mess. See you tomorrow!
