Quinoa salad is a good idea, also the yogurt broccoli slaw! Now, how to choose?

Thanks for the ideas ladies! You got my wheels turning now! I'll have to mull this over...
The other suggestions ARE good too. I've had that cold asparagus salad with barbeque before, and it does totally work. Ooh, a cold green bean and slivered almond salad sounds good too.

Ha...that would be good...but DH has one food issue. Fruit and nuts belong only to the dessert food group, in his opinion. They are not to be allowed into any savory dish.

Other than that, he will eat anything I make, so I guess there could be worse restrictions...but dang, it's surprising how often it comes up!

I'm going to try and get back on the wagon too.

I've been looking for tasty salad recipes. I think there are way more options that I first thought.

Good luck!

I'm going to do the same as soon as I return from vacation next week. My health is going down the toilet and I have to do something. Clinging to my last hurrah and then I'm getting clean folks.

You can do it


Tonight, I had 3 double, doubles-protein style...meaning wrapped in lettuce. Rob got fries and I didn't even try one...super proud of me..lol

I made a really tasty cauliflower salad yesterday:

1 head of cauliflower-chopped
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced bell pepper
1/2 cup diced celery

For the dressing:

1 cup mayo
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp *or more to taste* splenda
salt
pepper

Mix the dressing and then combine all ingredient. Refrigerate before eating. It's pretty yummy!

Made a cabbage salad last night. Unfortunately it bombed. Haha.

I ended up having Whole wheat pitas with melted mozzarella cheese inside.

Back to the drawing board. Haha.

Just made an awesome breakfast burrito with eggs, cheese, sliced hot links wrapped in a carb balance tortilla from Mission. So good that I'm reeeeeally tempted to make another one.

That sounds good. I wish I could like those mission carb balance..but they just taste chemically to me!

I masted hard boiled eggs today.....of course it took my hubby buying me an egg cooker.

Then...we went to Costco and I found hard boiled eggs in a package of 24 for like 3 bucks. GAH Sam's didn't sell them and I didn't even think to look at Costco before buying the damn machine. Oh well!

If anyone ever visits and wants a poached egg..well I can help with that :P

Wanted an icy dessert so I boiled some strawberries a limes (peeled and wedged - I can't think of the term for when you slice off the sides and cut out the meat) with about two cups of water and one cup of splenda and 1/2 tsp of vanilla, then put it in a blender and poured the whole thing in a bowl to freeze to almost hard. Scraped if off with a fork and served it in a pretty glass with lime wedges. Delish and cool. Oh I know there's a word for this dish...granita maybe?

So I made those coffee short ribs and you know what? They weren't so bad. In fact they were quite good. Sort ribs always tastes the same to me no matter how you cook them and these were no exception. Tasted like short ribs only they were softer, mellower somehow. I just threw stuff together, the measures are aproximate:

3-4 lb. short ribs
2 cups very strong French Vanilla Coffee.
2 cups beef broth
1 packet onion soup mix
some pepper, teaspoon maybe give or take?
garlic powder
tablespoon crushed garlic
Some kind of season salt. Less than a tablespoon
half cup or more of maple syrup
more salt

The mixture was extra salty and bitter. This worried me but short ribs have a tendency to come out bland anyway so I used it as is. I arranged the frozen short rips in the cast iron dutch, poured the stuff all over it and then put in the oven at 400 degrees. It smelled really nice through my apartment and when I tested it the extra salty, bitter and sweet taste had died down considerably. The short ribs are nice and tender and taste good, not salty or sweet at all. I drained them and discarded the liquid. Tasty and filling and they smell good when being reheated in the mocrowave at work.
