Last night's dinner was So Good that it means tonight (whatever I end up making) will be a lesser meal. Yesterday we had sauteed shrimp with wild rice and microwave steamed fresh asparagus. Himself said he thought I gave him too much wild rice but he ate it all!

Marie Callender meatless chick'n pot pie with Gardein plant based chick'n. It's really good and it has 12 grams of protein and 440 calories for 1 serving. The whole box has 25 grams of protein and 940 calories.
How many servings is one pot pie? I always eat the whole thing.

cooked with no oil in a non stik wok
You can't have oil anymore? Olive Oil is supposed to be healthy.

Lunch: Huge Dinner Plate Salad-- Lettuce, Tomato, Onion, Pumpkin Seeds, Thousand Islands Dressing, Garlic Dill Cheese Curds, Aldi Tropical Trail Mix Dried Fruit/Nuts, 1 Hard Boiled Egg, Late July Chia Quinoa Tortilla Chips, Parmesan Cheese, 1Tsp Hot Mama's Too Hot Habanero Sauce.

Dinner: Pasta Casserole Bake-- Penne, Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, Alfredo Sauce, Garlic Parsley Salt, Celery Salt, Cannelini Beans, Red Bell Peppers, Onions, Garlic, Cauliflower, Olive Oil, Sour Cream, 1Tsp Hot Mama's Too Hot Habanero Sauce.

I have a hunk of top round London broil marinating in the fridge since last night. Olive oil, garlic, balsamic vinegar, pineapple juice, etc. I started with a marinade recipe from Paul Kirk, but then went my own way with it. Hope it's good. I'm going to do it in the NFG, on the Grill function, but since it's pretty thick, I'm going to use a thermometer probe for about 125F, then let it rest a bit. I'm thinking of throwing together either twice-baked potatoes or maybe some Hasselback potatoes. Melting potatoes would be good, too. We'll see how it goes. And, for some reason, I'm thinking about sugared carrots. Apple dumplings for dessert.

I had leftover farfalle pasta last night over spinach leaves and tonight I'm having my leftover Chinese food - steamed veggies with tofu and brown rice. I love leftovers especially when it's been a busy day. :thumbsup:

Melting potatoes would be good, too.
I've never heard of melting potatoes, so I googled it. I didn't have any regular potatoes but I did have a sweet potato, and saw a recipe for melting sweet potatoes. WOW! They're absolutely amazing. Thanks!

I also made Just Bare chicken chunks, brushed with wing sauce to make "boneless wings". Pretty good.

You're not alone, I've been trying to get my husband off red meat for awhile. Even the doctor told him to reduce his intake. Too bad you don't live closer, the two of you could enjoy watching hockey together minus the red meat. 😉
