I can't thank you all enough for the wonderful comments and all the prayers for my brother. He is doing GREAT!!! He got up and walked yesterday, he ate, he got moved out of the ICU to the Neuro ICU, but he should get to come home at the end of the week. Thank you SO MUCH for the prayers, but keep them coming...he isn't 100% yet.
Yesterday was the BEST day OP. I only had 19 points. ME?? WTF?? I stayed out of the kitchen last night, and ate a nice healthy dinner. I didn't do so great with the water...only 84 ounces, but I stayed under my points. YAHOO!!!
B--Kashi Go Lean Waffles (3), banana (2)--5
L--Creamy Lasagna (5--recipe posted below), salad (1)--6
S--"Fried" Zucchini (2)--this is my new favorite snack!
D--Creamy Lasagna (5) (yes, again...we have a ton of leftovers, but they should be gone today! & a salad (1)--6
For a grand total of 19--84 ounces of water, and 7 fruits and veggie servings.
The "fried" zucchini I am making--I am using Roni's recipe for Parmesan Crusted Tilapia, but using the zucchini instead. I put it in the oven on the broil setting for about 8 minutes per side (I like it crunchy). So good and so filling--and a veggie! See--this is what you can do when you have a ton of zucchini from your garden.
This is our first year with a garden and we LOVE it. Although we have a ton of stuff--tomatoes, yellow squash, zucchini, and spaghetti squash. But it's soo nice to be able to go out there and cut up a tomato to put on my salad. I LOVE it! Next year we are going to make it bigger! :)
I have a doctor's appointment later today--that fun, lovely yearly appointment all us women go through, then I am off to the mall to visit Banana Republic and Gap and J.Crew. I'm soo into shopping right now, it's funny, but I want some new jean capris or some new jeans, or something I don't care! DS is gone, my long days are over, my brother is out of the woods--life is GREAT! I better get something accomplished. Oh and the cleaning girl will be here in less than 2 hours. I will get to come home to a clean house! WOO HOO!!!
I'm behind on my blog reading, I'll try to get caught up tonight. A lot of my "regulars" didn't post yesterday (MMalloy, dizzydazey) so I hope they are okay! NCChris-- you haven't posted in a while either! See people...I keep up with you! Have a great, fantastic OP day everyone!
