Soon. ;-)See this image largerThursday, I'm ready for you! Breakfast before a walk then work - crustless broccoli quiche, local bacon, and cherry tomatoes. See this image largerThanks, 11 hour work shift!!See this image largerA week of long work shifts doesn't necessarily mean junk food to the rescue. A bit of time and effort and I have: baked cabbage, onions, and beef brats, a huge salad, and a crustless asparagus quiche.(2 comments)See this image largerOh my goodness, one of the best crustless quiches I've made! I decided not to use asparagus and opted for a small amount of fake bacon and extra cheese. Easy and amaaaazing!(2 comments)See this image largerNot too shabby for a day that included a short work shift and quite a bit of relaxation. :-)See this image largerI'm having a foot problem that makes resting between work shifts important. I really dislike the decrease in the number of steps I get most days so this morning I'm trying to get in a few extra while watching "Turn". Shhhhh, don't tell!See this image largerHappy Saturday! Headed out for a great day at work :-)See this image largerMy treat for this week - a sample cup of a Starbucks Birthday Cake Frappuccino. I don't even like Frappuccinos but oh wow, this was delicious! See this image largerNot my best day but certainly not my worst. And now it's time for a rest before getting up early for work. :-)(2 comments)See this image largerI hoped for a better day but I've been up since 3 AM and am exhausted. Maybe tomorrow. I can do this! :-)See this image largerCaramelizing onion and garlic for a pot of delicious soup. Mmmmm!(2 comments)See this image largerApparently my long day wore him out!

See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerDelicious dinner of low carb blueberry and walnut pancakes. Easy to make and so very filling! I made extra for breakfast in the morning. :-)(4 comments)See this image largerThis is what happens when I have a long-ish and busy shift. Love it!!!See this image largerThis barley vegetable soup I made today isn't the prettiest soup I've ever created but it is absolutely delicious! I made enough for several lunches and a couple of dinners.(3 comments)See this image largerDeliciously simple dish of beef, carrots, onion, asparagus, garlic, and a small amount of broth. Great for a quick meal and travels and freezes well. See this image largerNot my best day but one of my better ones! Wooohooo!See this image largerNot enough active minutes for the day but I'll take those steps! I worked a seven hour shift and now it's time for me to relax a little bit. :-)See this image largerPart of my weekly meal prep is roasting a dutch oven full of vegetables. Behold! Zucchini, yellow squash, potato, onion, carrot, little tomatoes, mushroom, and sugar snap peas. Who needs a hamburger and french fries with this deliciousness waiting at home?(4 comments)See this image largerI should be sleeping but can't because my stomach was growling too much. I wanted something bad for me but opted for a bowl of steamed green beans, a few cherry tomatoes, and a few minutes of reading. Every good choice counts!(1 comments)See this image largerAnother of my one pot favorites - cabbage with crumbles, tomato, and spices. It tastes like cabbage rolls but is much lower in carbs! Between this and the vegetables I roasted a couple of days ago I'm set for this week. :-)(2 comments)See this image largerMy insulin pump failed last night in the middle of the night and I woke up with ridiculously high blood sugar this morning. Because of that, I haven't felt well today so I haven't gotten many steps in but I've made sure to eat well. Tonight's dinner is raw zoodles with raw carrots and bell peppers drizzled with a bit of Italian dressing and topped with a bit of parmesan. Easy and healthy for what ails ya'!!(3 comments)See this image largerTonight's dinner - a lightened up version of one of my favorite dishes, Pasta del Sol. Heavens, it's delicious!See this image largerNot my best day but I met my goal and then some. :-)(1 comments)See this image largerOne of my all-time favorite dishes - Mimi's sticky chicken. Since I don't eat meat very often, this is a real treat! I'm off work today and doing a little bit of cooking for the week before I head to my mothers house to prepare lunch for her. This chicken, served with salad and vegetables, will give me several meals. If you've never had sticky chicken, you really, really need to try it. I don't buy rotisserie chicken because I have this. :-)(3 comments)See this image largerI haven't been around much because I had a death in my immediate family. I'm now getting back on track and here's tonight's snack - delicious grape tomatoes. Yum! I love these so much I could eat the entire container in one sitting but I don't. ;-)(1 comments)
