    Chicken pot pie - We had chicken and dumplings a couple nights ago, and there was a bunch left (except most of the dumplings were gone). I froze some of it for a starter next time and the rest I'll use for the pot pie filling tonight. I'll have to put some more veggies in the mix to bulk it up a little though.

    I just now cooked. My electricity has been out all day due to storms. BF was going to bring over deer meatloaf, but he didn't have all the ingredients, and the grocery didn't have electricity.

    I ended up having stuffed clams.

    DH made spaghetti with Italian spicy sausage which is great except he told me the food was going to take awhile (like over an hour) to be ready because the meat was cooking very slowly and he needed time to put the sauce together, so I should grab a snack.

    So I did and no more than 10 minutes later he's like "Spaghetti's done!" But since I just ate a snack, I'm full. Kinda a blower because I would've rather gotten full on spaghetti than peanut butter crackers and a cheese stick. :banghead::rolleyes:

    Tonight is salad with grilled chicken and lots of homemade pickles!

    I made tomato sauce and meatballs yesterday and I let it cook for 5 hours so it came out really good.

    I had tacos... Without any fillings. Somehow when I went shopping I got tacos but no lettuce or cheese. I also got salsa but no chips. Not sure where my head was at.

    I had corn with it.

    Ended up making quinoa (sp?) instead of the couscous--I've been wanting to try it, and figured trying it in a recipe I knew we liked was a good idea for a first attempt. It was pretty good!

    Summertime Couscous
    *Prepare 1 cup (dry) couscous with a little thyme. Add 1 can chickpeas, 1 can diced tomatoes (I like to use the kind with Italian spices), garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Top with green onions and feta cheese. Sometimes I'll add some olives and/or capers if I have them on hand. You can serve immediately or chill first. :)

    Mmmm, I would love some home-grown tomatoes. I got an email from Pillsbury and checked out some chicken recipes for leftover chicken from last night. Think I'm going to make a casserole dish with chicken, veggies, cheese, and biscuits on top. Easy.

    I have even been having desert every night!!!!!


    Dinner: Baked Flounder, BIG romaine salad, brown rice & broccoli!
    Dessert: Frozen Chocolate Mouse w/cool whip free on top!

    I am feeling so much better and close to losing the 20 lbs I have needed to lose all year :):):)
