What's for Tonight's Dinner

Since May 28th I have been eating healthier and trying to get my diabetes under control.
I have lost 12 pounds and have got my sugar down from 360 to 130-140 regularly. I still want that number to change some and with the doctor we're working on it.

So, since then, I've been doing a lot more cooking at home. Sometimes I take a somewhat fattening recipe and make it as low fat as possible and sometimes I take things that are OBVIOUSLY healthy for you and make them taste good.
My doctor said something to me the last time I saw him that I don't agree with. he said, "if it tastes good, it's bad for you." Since then, I have been striving to make that statement false!

Tonight I'm gonna make a stuffed turkey breast... stuffed with?
I'm not sure yet, I have a couple of options.
I'm also going to make stuffed zucchini.

We'll see how it all turns out. I don't usually take picture or post about a first time recipe but maybe I will tonight. If you're reading this today, I hope that you'll come back!

Here's what we ended up with for dinner:P~~

Pesto stuffed turkey breast with seasoned corn and Prosciutto and Pepperoni stuffed zucchini. It was actually pretty delicious and for the first time making it all I was happy with how everything looked. I do however need a new knife...ugh! The one I currently own is CHEAP and cuts things badly.

I had never made stuffed zucchini and it was a rather fun procedure :)

I had also never made just a turkey breast, much less a stuffed one and I had definitely never tied one up with butcher string...LOL!

Dessert was a low fat, low carb, sugar-free peaches and cream. This one is a work in progress. It turned out good but it's so hard to get something low fat, low carb and sugar-free to taste the opposite.

Come back now, ya hear? ;D

Outward Results of an Inward Starvation

So, I weighed in yesterday. I lost 3 more pounds. That's a total of 12 pounds since the end of May.
Don't worry I'm NOT starving :)

LOTS to do today! The Mr still hasn't gotten out of bed.

It's Friday!

It's finally Friday! YAY!

Of course, this is the pinnacle of our week. Tonight it's Celebrate Recovery and Saturday and Sunday are church services. Then Monday, the Mr is off but I have to work half day. *sigh* The madness never ends!

Soon, I know God is working things out for me, for us.

Last night I put some steaks in the crockpot and this morning they were scrumdidiliumptious. I thought I had turned the crockpot off but left it on warm so when the Mr went to pick lunch up and bring it back to the office, they were dried out. UGH! I was furious with myself! I was in such a hurry this morning I didn't really pay attention. *sigh* Oh well, we still ate it. It was still good, I guess. I really struggle with getting angry about petty things like that. I mean, I lost my appetite because of it.

So, I'm trying to decide what I'm gonna make for dinner on Saturday. I bought a turkey breast...that's a thought. I'm so sick of chicken already.

Time to get creative! I'll let you know what I did:)

Have a great weekend blogger world!

My template is still a work in progress. There seems to be something wrong with every one that I actually like. It's a little bit annoying.

Oh well, what do you do.
So, yesterday we got home from work and ate dinner and then 20 minutes later went to bed. It was 6:30! believe me, I had stuff to do but the Mr. convinced me to sleep.

Woke up at 10PM and wanted somthing cold so I had a sugar free popsicle and then didn't wake up until 6:30AM today.
I'm finding this morning that although it was a lot of EXTRA sleep, I certainly needed it.

Look who's back again! (with an accent)

So, It's been quite a little while since I've blogged. I find that as much as I like to let the world know about the things going on in my life, I run out of time to do so.

I'm back again! Hopefully for a longer period of time though.

Lately, I've really enjoyed reading other people's blogs so I figured why not start writing again so that others can enjoy reading my blog, right? I hope so.

I spent about an hour trying to get the layout right and I don't think it's right yet. Figures. I'll ask the Mr if he can tinker with it later.
