I lasted as long as I could and finally broke down last week and we got takeout - pizza, subs & wings. It was a busy weekend and it did make sense, but it would have been nice to be able to wait longer. The bad thing about takeout is I seem to loose control with all the yummy salt and fat, but I did extra exercising and don't think it caused too much damage. Then this week we went out for lunch at work and I got extra and more fat and carbs. This time it was Thai and that meant yummy rice. At least it was brown. But that doesn't mean I didn't make some good homemade meals too. Here are some I remembered to take pictures of.Joseph's Lavash with garlic lover's hummus and a little shredded light cheddar. It's then browned on a griddle until crispy. These were really yummy. The night before we had these with shredded BBQ Chicken breasts done in the slow cooker, a bit of the cheddar cheese and some jarred spiced peaches.
Crash Hot Sweet Potatoes. They reminded me of Tostones as far as cooked, smashed and crisped. I made them with butternut squash as well as a couple of sweet potato pieces I had in the mix. The topping was a bit heavy on the Cumin. I love the idea of these and will try again but I think the pieces need to be bigger and maybe I'll try using maple sugar instead of the brown sugar.
This pizza is just a basic cheese with the pesto sauce and I may have added some artichoke hearts too. The past couple of weeks we mostly ate spinach, hummus, eggs, and pizza. I can't forget the lentil, barley, vegetable soup done in the slow cooker (it was ok, too tomatoey, but really easy.
So what's next?
Tomorrow will be another pizza - bbq chicken and we could easily turn it into buffalo. I'd like to make another batch of the banana chip muffins we can't seem to get enough of, something with butternut squash because we have 1/2 of one left, also have kale and broccoli we need to use. If it weren't for my addiction to cool whip, I don't think I'd have to go to the market this week, but until I find a substitute, I'm at it's mercy.
