    I'm having my go to - Spicy Boca Chicken Salad, Greek Yogurt, Cottage Cheese w/sugar free jello powder sprinkled in.

    And because I'm a Steelers fan and its game day I'm going to have 1 or 6 Bud Light Platinums:)

    Hmm, I never would have thought of doing that with the cottage cheese. B)

    Oh yeah yummy, I don't eat meat so I get some of my protein with cottage cheese. You have to just barely sprinkle the jello powder, mix and taste. If you add too much its yuck! I use raspberry or strawberry.

    I too have just discovered the joy of cooking on cast iron pans. I always had them (given to me as a gift) but I never used them for some reason. Well I recently cooked a steak and a burger and OMG they were top 5 ever. :p Sweet potato and onion soup... I'd love to see that recipe, that sounds like one my hubby would drool over.

    PS. Here's to Sunday! :)

    Ok, today was a little different for me food wise. I've been trying to force myself to eat breakfast (I have a bad habit of skipping & not eating until 2-3 pm) So I ate a huge breakfast & felt thanksgiving-stuffed all day. So I ended up skipping lunch and having a smoothie for dinner. & Just had a slice of baby swiss & turkey (no photo).
    Breakfast: iced coffee w/ whipped cream, 2 eggs with peppers, onion, tomato & colby cheese; two potato pancakes with homemade cinnamon applesauce.
    Lunch: too full to eat
    Dinner: Green Smoothie (Kale, romaine, cucumber, grapefruit, clementine & lemon juice, pineapple, banana, chlorella, spirulina, hemp protein powder, camu and green coffee powders) 1/2 red grapefruit.
    Snack: 1 oz baby swiss, 1 oz maple turkey breast.

    Yup, but only for 60 minutes after the initial post. In the web browser MFP, it's an invisible thing at the upper right corner of your post that you have to find by hovering over it, then click edit. (After 60 minutes, there's nothing hover-able). In the Android app, there's a little gear-looking thing at the upper right of your post to click on. Can't speak for other apps.

    Breakfast
    - 2 cups coffee with half and half
    - 3-egg omelette with onion, tomato, bacon, and cheddar, seasoned with chili powder and smoked paprika

    No lunch

    - Hot cocoa
    - 1 chocolate chip cookie

    Dinner
    - Savory porridge made with Irish steel-cut oats, bacon, onion, garlic, and an egg. (I had to use up the bacon and oatmeal.)

    And since I have a few calories left over, I'll probably indulge in some bas-armagnac later, or maybe some Irish cream since I don't mind going over reduction calories on weekends.

    Really? Maybe you need to upgrade your browser. The gear icon should appear if you hover your mouse anywhere within the area of your post within the hour you have available to edit.

    Heh! No doubt it does, but I've always rushed right up to the upper right and never noticed that it shows up earlier. ;) Thanks for the correction!
