Um, not so much.  Tony and I had given up on having a garden.  The amount of work, staving off critters who would eat our bounty the day before picking it.  But we love tomatoes.  Well, I love making things out of tomatoes, not actually eating them whole!  The Topsy Turvy was going to be our garden salvation!


And then Tony and I pondered on what to do with it – make salsa?  make a huge pot of sauce?

the fruits of our labor!

I have  to blame myself – we had a nice potted tomato plant, and I decided to shove it into a topsy turvy – never again!  But we did get one perfect tiny cherry tomato! 😀

But I need to start at the beginning.  Breakfast was two kid size flat out bread with 1/2 ounce mozzrella, 1/5 ounce steak and 1 large scrambled egg.


And lunch was 3 ounces of shrimp, 4 ounces of broccoli, 1 large carrot, and 1 package of yaki – soba noodles.  This whole plate comes in at 318 calories, 1.4 fat, 25 protein, 50 carbs and 4.2 fiber.


I defrosted some chicken legs and thighs and decided to make fried chicken for dinner.  I thought of making mashed potatoes on the side, but once the deep fryer got going, I decided to make homemade chips!



My plate:  1 fried chicken leg, 1.0 ounce of fried chips and green beans with 1 tablespoon of Caesar dressing.

Dinner comes in at 417 calories, 23 fat, 23 protein, 31 carbs and 4.9 fibe

I am in the process of making crab bisque soup!  I am trying to make a shellfish broth with the crab shells, and I picked off the rest of the meat from the knuckles and legs:

Okay, off to bed, I have to get into work early tomorrow.  Happy almost Friday! 😀
