    Today still using leftovers. I made basmati rice with a sauce of lentils and tomato, salad, navel oranges, panettone and other sweets.

    Tonight (Monday, 01/06): roast chicken breast, baked potato, sauteed Italian-style eggplant (eggplant, tomatoes, onion, garlic, seasonings). About 863 cals as shown, per MFP (65g protein, 25g fat - mostly olive oil, 96g carb). This is a pretty simple meal.

    2 lamb chops with rosemary, paprika-roasted potatoes, and green beans (and a dr. pepper). About a thousand calories :s but I had room for it in the daily allotment. I think I need a bigger plate. 6syfwb25jkw6.jpg

    1000 calories? I'm legit shocked!

    I just started mid-December trying Dream Dinners - not all 'calorie-friendly' but meals put together with each step in a bag where you freeze then take out and cook and eat and/or re-freeze portions. trying to re-start my cooking at home. so last night after work I cooked 2 meals I had thawed and needed to fix - meatballs in a sweet sesame glaze and a chicken wild rice soup. I will try the soup today for lunch - the meatballs I still need to fix some rice to go with so they may end up being frozen into individual servings until I return from vacation!

    Today I made my husbands favorite--Pasta with butter. I used penne pasta cooked al dente, after I drained it I put it back in the pan and put cutup slices of butter on to melt, stir, then I sprinkled freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano on top, stirred again and added a little of the cooking water (that I saved in a cup), stir again and serve. More cheese can be sprinkled on top at the table. The trick is to use a very good quality semolino pasta. This is very simple and anyone can do it.

    Thats not 1000 calories, unless they used a whole lot of butter or oil.🤔

    Given that it's lamb, I can believe it. Lamb meat can have as much as 50% fat (especially ribs) if not trimmed well, and even if you trim visible fat well it still ends up fatty. If fat isn't trimmed at all, it can make up as much as 60% of the nutrient weight and something like 75% of the calories!

    poster did say and a Dr Pepper.

    If it was a can of non diet Dr Pepper, that would add couple of hundred calories?

    Last night pieces of chicken breast wrapped in "speck" (a cured, thinly sliced pork product) and browned in a nonstick pan until carmelized on the outside. Then I pan fried raw cauliflower in EVOO and spices until crusty.
