I have alot of wonderful food to talk about tonight. Not only is tonight a Hubby in the Kitchen night, but I also made a wonderful two-part lunchie.
Today, I was at the office until 1pm. When I go into the office, I tend to eat a two-part lunch because I can't wait until I get home and fix it. It's just too long. My stomach starts wanting food at noon without fail.
So, today, I had a delicious white peach with Oikos Honey yogurt around noon.
Around 2 when I was home, I made a fantastic Broccoli-Kidney Bean wrap.
I also threw on some of the brown rice from last night's din-din.
Envelope Fold, of course
I also scrambled up some eggbeaters because I was low on protein.
It was SO good. The afternoon brought snacky goodness: a few pretzel twists and a frigo light cheesestick when I got home from class.
To my utter delight, I came home to this:
Mr. Myers hard at work chopping up french fries for tonight's dinner.
Oh! I almost forgot. Tonight's dinner was suggested by AZLinda of Linda Gets Fit.
Let's see, what's an easy hubby dinner....hmmm....men love to grill..so how about grilled turkey burgers, grilled corn on the cob, and baked sweet potato fries on the side...
Well, Ms Linda, Mr. Myers altered your suggestion a bit... We don't have a porch or balcony and had to give away our grill when we moved here (he was sad).
On the Menu at Chez Myers
"White Castle" Turkey Burgers
Baked French Fries
Corn on the Cob
Oh my wordness, so good. Prepare to drool.
For real, for real, he made these burgers better than I do! My man can COOK! I ate my burger bunless since the meal was already carb-loaded. And, yes, I do my corn on the cob "off the cob." This meal was heavanly. Even our roommate got in on the action. I really enjoyed this meal. Thanks, AZLinda, for the inspiration!
Since I'm doing Sparkpeople again, I thought I'd give you today's stats:
Carbs: 208 grams
Fat: 41 grams
Protein: 85 grams
This is a fairly typical day for me. Discretionary (no-count) calories include no sugar added popsicles and Diet Oceanspray. I'm also a grazer, so basically I realize I take in more than I realize. Unfortunately, this is part of my "deal," so I just roll with it. I would guess I take in around 200 calories more than I account for, which puts me in a very reasonable range.
Ok, so enough of all that food stuffs. Again, thanks for your comments on the last post. I will try to get back to you guys very soon.
