When I worked at a bar in my 20’s, during lent one of the cooks I worked with used to order a pepper and egg sandwich on Friday’s during lent.  At the time I thought it was the most disgusting thing, but as I grown up, I’ve discovered I LOVE peppers!  Yesterday’s breakfast was a take on that sandwich: a 1 point WW pita, 1/2 cup egg whites, 1/2 cup sliced green pepper, 1/4 cup black beans, 1/4 cup white corn, 1/2 an ounce of reduced fat cheddar cheese:

I topped it with spicy salsa roja:

327 calories, 5 fat, 53 carbs, 27 protein, 14 fiber

For lunch I made lasagna roll ups:  my mixture was 1/4 cup fat free ricotta cheese, 1/4 cup fat free cottage cheese, 1/2 cup pasta sauce, a bunch of fresh spinach and Italian seasonings.  I used three lasagna sheets – 170 for all three.

Since the noodles were cooked, it was just a quick microwave – I had carrots on the side with Annie’s Goddess dressing mixed with balsamic dressing:

468 calories, 11 fat, 68 carbs, 24 protein, 8 fiber

Are you the main cook in your family? While Tony is an awesome cook, I kind of shove him to the side because I love it so much.  But what happens is that there are some dishes I just never make, simply because I don’t like them.  Tuna noodle casserole is one of them, so while Hannah and I had veggie potstickers and stirfry vegetables, Tony had his tuna noodle casserole – he loved it!

cooked egg noodles, 1/2 cup skim milk, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese and 1 cup of canned peas - bake for 30 minutes - done!

In operation clean freezer, I discovered I had two bags of potstickers – these were vegetarian, and you get 7 for only 170 calories!

I had this in the pantry, so I cooked it in my rice maker and it turned out!  I added 1/4 cup to my stirfry veggies

It wasn’t until after dinner that I realized I’d only had around 1100 calories, so I justified that I had the calories for wine.  Crap!   Approximately 319 calories of empty calories, but today is another day and I am not going to stress about it.  Helen – tell me to step away from the wine! 😀

Thanks for all your suggestions about the reuben pizza – but I think MaryBeth had the right idea – Tony agreed that I should make an alfredo white sauce and add horseradish to is – we thought that Thousand Island dressing would taste gross when hot.

I ended up not watching BL last night in favor for American Idol!  I love when people suck and they don’t even know it – but since the beginning shows are the only ones Tony will watch, he prefers the contestants that get so pissed off security gets involved!!

So even with the wine, here are my stats for Tuesday:

  • 1,482 calories
  • 21 fat
  • 190 cabs
  • 66 protein
  • 31 fiber
  • 35 minute sculpting ball Firm dvd
