Friday Foodstuffs: I'm Shrinking!

I haven't done a Friday Foodstuffs in awhile.  To be honest, cooking hasn't been nearly as fun since
I started Weight Watchers.  I've found a few good recipes but I miss things like real butter and a
second helping.  Still, I know there are good recipes out there, so I keep searching and cooking.

Oh, and even though you probably care less, since Halloween I've lost 16lbs and dropped a pants
size.  So all this light eating is actually worth it.  Plus, with the Weight Watchers program, I get
the occasional induldgence.  I just can't induldge every day, which is how I ended up at Weight Watchers in the first place.

It's short week of meals because on Wednesday night (my 30th birthday for those who want to send gifts) we're driving throught the night to spend the holidays with my husband's family.  Despite the temptation to get take out every day until we leave, I am going to cook hearty, healthy meals.

Friday: Slow Cooker Chicken Chili  For the record, I just polished of a bowl of this and it was awesome!
Saturday: Sushi (ok, that's not homemade)
Sunday: Grilled Flank Steak with Mango Chutney.  Steamed Snow Peas
Monday: Brett is eating Lightened up Chicken Divan.  I'm going out with a friend to cry over celebrate the fact I'm 30.
Tuesday: Garden Veggie Soup.  Anything in our fridge that might go bad while we are freezing our asses off in Ohio.
Wednesday: Multiple shots of 5-Hour Energy to get us through an overnight drive. And probably birthday cake.
Thursday through December 28th.  Nothing but sausage balls, coffee and Swensons hamburgers.  It's what we do when in Akron.

Sigh. I'm going to have to do a lot of running to make up for the Christmas trip......

What are you eating this week?

Congratulations on 16lbs! That's impressive, especially considering that most people put on a pound or two during the holiday season.

The 16lbs is awesome! Rock star, I swear.

And that Skinny Taste website looks great. I'll definitely be checking it out.
