Nicco are your roads not bad? You are driving DS and you to the Y but I was assuming your roads were in tough shape??

hubby and I hit the little smokehouse meat store down the road WHO ALSO has tons of 'out of the ordinary products' and hubby spent the darn world! UGH...reminder, never take a bored hubby out to shop But I got chicken wings and I dusted them in baking powder and I have a ton in the oven now. Can't wait to try gonna divide my 1/2 into parm/garlic and buffalo sauce ones....I like to cook wings and pull out 1/2 way and then sauce/flavor them up cause I always seem to burn it all too much if I do it from the beginning.

Pasta and meatballs is a great choice for 'volume feeding' and easy on the provider!!

KM, yes I MUST have that meat soft! I want my meat falling apart to 'just' before mush but hubby likes his a bit firmer, so he pulls a bunch out to eat when he tests it and 'it feels' perfect to him, but I let mine go alot longer to get a very very very tender fall apart meat. The gravy is the bonus on it

You can do anything with it actually.
You can put a load over broccoli if ya love broccoli, or ya can put a load over some lc pasta or those 'miracle noodles' that are 0 carb. I have done that and while I hate the miracle noodles cause of texture, I have eaten a ton of it before and have lost serious lbs doing just that...and it was a filling thing to the tummy for me. Sadly tho I could not handle that texture but ya know, Blue has those lc enadame noodles she eats and that would be a plus with this meat over them.

No, never did chicken with gravy that way, cause, personally I hate all canned or jarred chicken gravy. has a funky taste to me.

Never did pulled pork with sauces cause I just love it plain, in eating terms, I pour the grease over some of the meat for more juicy meat and that is what I love so a sauce just doesn't come into play.

but experiment cause meat and 'lc sauces' are keys to eating real good and getting that comfort feeling while doing all the best for yourself

I just made shrimp sauteed in butter/tiny bit of oil and tons of Old Bay seasoning for kiddo with a load of fries she wanted. first meal of the day She ate like a queen and loved it. I laughed who in the heck is getting crazy meals like this on snow days LOL
she wanted dipping for the fries so I bought that 'queso consalsa' or whatever you call it cheese sauce.

well she left some shrimp and I dipped it in that cheese sauce and OMG it was so good. So now I am going to find a 'true real' cheese sauce to make and enjoy for dipping for myself. I can dip the world in cheese sauce ya know and over my meats it would be fab! off to experiment.

just chatting cause day is just yucky here but SO warm today, no ATV sledding, our road is melting very fast now.
Bummer, if I HAVE TO LIVE THIS, then give me some ATV sledding please

Trig- I am so jealous of cheese sauce I can hardly stand it! But hey awesome for you right!

I am TIRED ladies. Even though I work from home it was one fire after another from work I was putting out fires all day. Do not have have energy to deal with school. Did some light light reading, so next step is writing. Have 2 small discussion papers.
Have HUGE paper in next two weeks. I need to get jump start on that. The next two weeks are going to be well challenging.

I will say though I had some real encouragement yesterday- from someone who has been here done this. She said- "Ya know Jaz, it's hard in the beginning for a few months. then you settle into a routine! " and before you know it you are done!
Dang that was music to my ears. This person is a NP in our dept. She she not a academic snob- just a disciplined person. One foot in front of the other.

I didn't get the townhouse/ condo. They countered WAY above what I thought it was worth. Then top that with 250- monthly HOA fees that are worthless to me. Those are HIGH.
No work out room, and I would be responsible for roof, bugs, gutters, NO thank you.

That is alot of month at the price they wanted for nothing I would use. Use of a clubhouse means nothing to me.

So the hunt continues........ Not worried. Maybe I should be, but I am not.

Ok- made chicken and Chili- for the leftovers. I split up the chili and will freeze 3/4 of it. 1 serving of chicken left.

Portion control is issue as usual/ and moving!!!!!!! Struggle here- same dance different day. BUT this year is my year!!!!YES IT IS

I think personally I too am getting down with house bound, cold, and more cold. I just can't do anymore winter. It's getting to me. Good news up to 50 tomorrow. I need some 70'+++++++

Ok all - off to pack

Hi all,

Real quick check in for me---had a very crabby day and feel like my teeth have become sharp and pointed, my ears have grown hairy, and eyes have bulged out.

IOW, not feeling chatty. Just wanted to check in and say ON PLAN, despite the fact that I would like to do a big bag of tortilla chips up, melt cheese all over them, and use my razor like teeth to tear through them. But I'm not going to do that.

Going to have a Cheeseburger w/fried egg and LC pickle relish on it for dinner. No bun. NO LC bread. Then I'm going to hide myself away and hope I wake up on my much sunnier side.
