Good morning! My favorite day of the week has arrived. It's going to be a busy weekend with events but hopefully it won't go too fast. Yesterday was a great eating day until after dinner time and the snacking began. I'm not even sure what set me off except for the fact I didn't stop all day and probably overdid it a bit. I guess this is what they call stress eating. Today is a new day. So far coffee with sugar in the raw and soymilk......breakfast will be my oatmeal with blueberries and soymilk......lunch will be my vanilla yogurt with flaxseed and Grapenuts...

Happy, happy Friday!! Jeannie

Good morning ladies. Thank you for thinking of me yesterday.

Jeannie- Don't worry about the slip up. You are doing great and today is a new day.

I had cherry pie last night Hubby said I earned it. I know you are not supposed to reward yourself with food, lol.

It is raining here again!!! I have lots of kitchen plans today. I have a bunch of tomatoes, squash and one big zucchini that I have to do something with.

I am thinking about making a version of Amber's Tomato with White Bean and Bacon soup. I will also be peeling and prepping carrots and celery. Gotta have those snacks handy.

Breakfast- I'm thinking egg whites and sliced tomatoes.
Lunch- something with squash
Dinner- I have no idea.

I found a new recipe this morning for those interested. It is for a crustless spinach, onion, and feta quiche and only has 142 calories per serving.

Crustless Spinach, Onion and Feta Quiche

Technically crustless but the addition of flour makes for a delicious crusty bottom and sides to this quiche.

INGREDIENTS

1 medium onion, diced
6-oz fresh baby spinach
2 large eggs
1/2 cup egg beaters (liquid substitute)
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
pinch cayenne pepper
1 1/3 cups non fat milk
1/2 cup feta cheese

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 400F.
Lightly grease a 10-inch quiche/tart pan (or a pie plate)
In a medium frying pan, cook diced onion with a bit of vegetable oil (or cooking spray) over medium-high heat until translucent and tender. Add in fresh spinach and cook until just wilted. Set aside to cool for a few minutes
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk in milk, then stir in spinach-onion mixture.
Pour quiche base into prepared pan. Top with feta cheese.
Bake for 25 minutes, or until center is set and the outside edge is golden brown.
Let set for 5 minutes, then slice and serve.

Number of Servings: 6

Ended up eating a ton of fresh sliced and salted tomatoes with fettucini last night. Soooo good.

Breakfast: Water and green grapes

Lunch: Gotta go out to Costco, so probably going to grab a polish dog with tons of onion and mustard and a diet soda. Pretty high in calories, but since I can barely ever even finish one, it's not too bad for a meal in itself. Besides, you can't beat $1.50 for lunch.

Dinner: Pulled chicken, quinoa, beans, and enchilada sauce all baked up in a yummy casserole.

Hope everyone's looking forward to a good weekend! I just finished up a hectic first week of classes, so I'm going to definitely be asleep a good portion of mine.

Good morning ladies...

Jeannie...after dinner is my worst time of the day...we eat early, so there is lots of time between dinner and bed!

Lisa...again...happy about your news and thank you for the recipe...again...will wait till it cools off here...dh heard it's supposed to get up to 112 here today...oh, I hope they're wrong!

spiderbear...having a Costco hot dog w/drink is one of my favorite lunches! How do you prepare your quinoa and are you adding it to the casserole?

Judi...hope to finally get to the grocery store today to pick up some 1% Cottage Cheese. Your dinner sounds like it will be yummy!

Miguel's Mom...it's funny because I don't like green bell peppers all that much, but somehow when they're stuffed I love them!

Izzy...stay cool!

NCN...we all have those days!

Today will be super busy...dd is coming home this afternoon...can't wait to see her...so I don't know what I'll be eating for dinner.

Breakfast was my coffee...a slice of diet bread with 2% cheese and a few slices of Healthy Choice turkey.

Lunch at Red Robin with my friend...we decided to split a Boca Burger and get a salad on the side!

Have a great Friday everyone...

Later...
