I have no ability to use salt. Seriously. I under salt just about everything I cook. Thank goodness for Tony! I constantly bring him things to taste, and the first words out of his mouth is “it needs more salt!” I think Tony thinks I’ve burned every tastebud in my mouth for all the hot stuff I eat! This mornings breakfast was no exception!
- 1 corn tortilla
- 1/2 cup egg whites
- handful baby spinach
- 1/2 ounce cheese ends
- fresh sliced jalapenos! 😀
- tablespoon lime salsa (Paul Newman’s –so good!)
- fruit salad with raspberries and kiwi
My store had kiwis for 10 for $1! You’ll be seeing these a lot this week!
Since I went to the Japanese grocery store yesterday, I picked up some bean sprouts and baby bok choy – I’ve had regular bok choy, but never really liked it – but I LOVED the baby bok choy! I had leftover crab from my mom’s birthday dinner, so lunch was crab stir fry:
- 1.5 ounce baby bok choy
- 3 ounces bean sprouts
- 1.5 ounce red pepper
- 1.5 ounce zucchini
- 1 package of Yaki-Soba Noodles (150 calories for the whole package!)
- 3 ounces cooked king crab
- 3 ounces broccoli
- 2 tablespoons House of Tsang Szechuan sauce
This was so filling and good! But I wished I would have added more sliced fresh jalapeno to this dish! 😀
I thought I would get a cup of coffee around 3:00 and decided a Cafe Mocha ala Biz was in order!
- 1/3 packet of sugar free cocoa mix
- 2 tablespoons whipped cream
- sprinkle of Nestle ice cream topping (left over from an office birthday celebration)
Hit the spot!
I picked up some really cheap bone in chicken breasts over the weekend, so decided I would make buttermilk fried chicken. I seriously under salted the buttermilk marinade (but if it were for me I would have added WAY more cayenne 😀 ) and under salted the flour mixture – but the buttermilk made it extremely juicy and tender. Hannah hates how raw chicken looks! Luckily she had pizza after work! 😀
My plate: 5 ounce fried chicken breast, 1 cup “skinny” mashed potatoes (potatoes mixed with chicken broth, no butter) and green beans.

My friend Natalie has a great project starting this week – Project Feed Me! Click on this link here to see what it’s all about, or click on the Project Feed Me logo on the right side of my blog. Basically, you are recommended food items to give to your local food pantry – only two cans a week! This week is chili! The basis is that if you get a lot of people to give a little, everyone wins! Especially in this economy, you never know if the person who lives next door to you has trouble putting food on the table. Hope you’ll join me in this effort! 😀
Great news – soon I am going to have a great GIVEAWAY thanks to the generous people at Yoplait for their new Fiber One Yogurt – 50 people will get a free four pack of this new yogurt, and the rest will get $1.25 coupons! Stay tuned!
Biggest Loser is on!! Can’t wait to see what crazy things Tracey is going to do tonight! 😀
