I am sure you are wondering what the title of the post could possibly mean! Somehow, not one, but two people Googled: “Fish With Big Lips” and somehow found my blog! The funny thing is that I probably have 5 fish posts in 14 months of this blog! :D
I got up in time to take the dog for a walk. You know the drill, all I have to do is say “walk” and he’s at the back door in two seconds! Today was the same. Except for one thing. As soon as I put the retractable leash on him, he went back up the stairs and into our bedroom where Tony was watching the morning news! What?? I kept saying, “Ed, want to go for a walk??” Nothing! So I went alone! A quick 20 minutes I was back. When I walked in the door Tony said “I think Ed regretted his decision after the first five minutes you were gone!” But then I had to get ready for work and there was no time. 🙁
Breakfast: 1/2 Panera Sesame Bagel, 1/2 cup egg beaters, 1 ounce goat cheese, 1 ounce deli ham and 4 ounces cantaloupe. My bagel got a tad too dark, but it was still tasty!
Can I just tell you how fricken good my lunch was??? Since I worked almost a full day on Sunday, which is my grocery shop/menu plan day, I am kind of flying by the seat of my pants this week, which is so not like me! I was looking in the fridge today, and remembered that I had turkey tenderloin leftover. Mind you, this was teriyaki marinated turkey! So I did what any normal person would do and I washed it under cold water! Why you ask?? Because I wanted to make a Rachel!
My lunch was the other half of the bagel from breakfast, 4 ounces of sliced turkey, 2 ounces of sauerkraut, my homemade mustard, and 1 ounce of provolone cheese! This sammie was amazing!
I went in the deep freeze and pulled out a serving of my Two Point Acorn Squash Bisque- score! So it was a soup and sammie day!
Before I go any further, I have to add to yesterday’s meal plan. You see, while I can have cakes and cookies laying around I am not tempted one bit. Apple fritter on the counter, who cares? But pretzels. Pretzels are my crack! Especially these pretzels!
So if anyone is keeping score, please add 250 calories to my total yesterday!!!
So since I am working out of my pantry and freezer, dinner tonight was chicken legs, chicken wings, Pam fried red potatoes and luckily I had enough stuff to make salads on the side!
I had one small chicken leg, 2 wings, 4 ounces of potatoes and the above salad. Um, turns out I deep fat fried the chicken!
So while still kind of high in fat, I still met my goals for the day!!

I have to say one more thing before I start to watch Biggest Loser! Ed and I are down by the river and I see a black cat. Then I notice that this cat is really big. Then I notice that this black cat is a giant SKUNK! I don’t know if any of you have experienced a pet getting sprayed by a skunk before, but the smell lingers forever!! Happily we made it home safe! 😀
Off to watch BL! See you tomorrow night!
