I made stuffed peppers tonight. One of my husband's favorites. Bell pepper, ground beef, rice, onion, garlic, herbs, tomato sauce, baked in the oven. We had sweet potato fries and sriracha sauce to go with it. And a salad.

Lunch today was blueberries & Doritos. Yeah, really. Lol. And two scoops of black walnut ice-cream.

Tres, your kind of day is exactly my favorite kind of day. I've caught almost everything in the water you can think of.....but not scallops. That's fantastic!

SoberJen, I like your dinner, but can't say I'd gobble up the blue berries and Doritos. Sounds like stuff I ate when I was pregnant

I'm just nuts, LDT. I'm definitely not pregnant yet. I guess I'm just lazy and unimaginative with food lately.

Morning all!

Tres, I have never been scalloping but everyone talks about it here (I'm in the gulf coast). Are they big? Also, what spiralizer is it that you use? I live to make zucchini noodles but I cut them by hand and it is never consistent so they all cook differently.

Ghost, sorry for how you're feeling.

Jam, sorry to hear about the belly issues. Eesh, that can't be fun.

Visited the nutritionist yesterday. I'm not losing as fast as I had hoped. In fact, it's downright not moving and since I was just diagnosed with colitis, I am supposed to start the Specific Carb Diet. Is anyone familiar with it? Looks like I'm giving up quinoa.... Man! I love that stuff

B- protein pancakes with mashed raspberries
L- tilapia and broccoli
D- chicken tikka and a vegetable (not sure if I want spinach or brussel sprouts... Or both!)

Everyone have a good day!

Hey Heaters,

Last day of vacation. One more sail and it's back home. I have not over eaten this last week, but I have eaten food I don't normally eat, and it's not feeling good. I may start another 3 day juice cleanse ( or "blend") when I get back. What I do know for sure is that I am going to try cutting out nuts for a while to see if that clears up some gastro issues. No nuts on a Paleo diet is going to be a challenge, but I'm working on it.

Y'all know how much I "love" beets, right ? well, the first thing I pulled up on my email this a.m. Was from the Paleohack website. I get email from them daily. It was a recipe called, ( ahem )....... 'Luscious Beet Brownie Recipe'....... Sounds like an oxymoron to me.

My usual 3 cups of coffee with half & half, a bit of seltzer over crushed ice with a splash of juice... that's all I've had today! And half of my vitamins. Just now getting hungry, weird. Guess I'll have an egg and salad for late lunch.

We're probably having steak, broccoli, sweet potatoes and salad tonight. Our "usual" dinner. Seems it's our go-to.

Peaches, blueberries and ice-cream for dessert, more than likely.

Good Morning Heaters!

SoberJen........you go first on the beet brownie.

Last day of Vaca.....drinking coffee as I type. The menu for today, as it always is the "last day": Eat what's ever left over in the fridge. I sort of like these last day meals because the dishes can get really creative, if not unusual . Once home, Imwill be "blending" for the next couple of days.

LDT... this is my brownie recipe. It's Mark Bittman, or bust, when it comes to brownies, imo

http://dinersjournal.blogs.nytimes.c...brownies/?_r=0

Never had a better tasting (or textured) brownie, ever.

Jennie, Glad I gave you a laugh! But seriously, she had a vodka smoothie. Then yesterday, I went for my walk, and she was out walking with her H! I passed her (he had a drink in his hand, as he walked!) and asked her if she was trying to get healthy now, to which she replied, "Hell No!". Grumpy yet funny old southern lady! Gotta love it!
LDT last day of vacay, hope you had a great time! Let us know about your creative leftovers.
Tres, could you tell me what recipe you used for your cauli crusts?
Tamerua, I remember passing through Nachitoches on my way to Orange. Because I got a speeding ticket there. Many years ago...

Been eating well lately, until... Last night we made pizzas... I didn't try the cauliflower crust, just bought some readymade thin crusts. Boys made their own, covered in bacon and pepperoni and cheese.
Mine had olive salad, red peppers, purple onion, jalapenos, sundried tomatoes and cheese. I had 2 slices, very good, and didn't hurt! Nectarine for dessert.
Oh, brkft- yogurt as usual. Lunch- popcorn and m&ms and a little Dr. Pepper (my fav snack, we were watching a movie). Not the best day for healthy eating.

Today, Bkfst- yogurt with pineapple.
Lunch- green smoothie and sliced tomatoes.
Dinner- Not sure yet, but probably mahi mahi again. I need to balance out yesterday's choices. I cut up a pineapple, so we've all been snacking on that.

So funny Your description of her has inspired me to jot this down in my notes for future reference, for characters in my stories

joygirl, did you mean Nachitoches, Louisiana....or Nacogsoches, Texas? In reality they are actually not too far from each other.

We're home now and the boat fridge clean out proved to be not quite as creative as usual because there wasn't much left over. We stopped on the way home at our seafood markets to stock up on shrimp, scallops, oysters and catfish. We definitely got our seafood ON!

Jennie, you're a writer! Southern imaginations create the best stories!

LDT, I meant Nachitoches, LA. Officer Killjoy took my license away, and I didn't get it back until I paid the ticket, through the mail! I'm so envious of your fresh seafood bootie! I'd love to have a big shrimp boil! I may have to organize one for my cul-de-sac. A question: Have you ever used ready made roux in a jar? I saw some at the store and was curious if it was any good?

I made the green smoothie with a little orange juice today, and pineapple with fresh mint, in addition to the cucumber, canteloupe, and spinach. Very tasty!

joygirl...here's my deal on roux.....I married a Cajun French, killer cook, who makes his own roux. I on the other hand hail from a 'Yankee' heritage (ok, so I just outed myself). I didn't even know what real eating was until I moved to my state. I have no memory of meals my mother made growing up....and she cooked 3 times a day..... She said she made dessert every night but that's a new one on me as well.....so anyway, even though my DH makes his own roux, neither one of us is above using jar roux when we are pressed for time. But it has to be Savoie's or Richard's. Sometimes, when I want a little lighter tasting gumbo I will make it with a jar POWDER roux. But that isn't anything like the real deal..... and it doesn't surprise me in the least that you got a ticket in Nachitoches, La. That area, as well as the little towns around central La. Are nationally NOTORIOUS for generously giving out speeding tickets.

And p.s.... I can totally see your neighbor putting vodka in her green smoothie. That would be the only way my friend would have even tasted it. Can you believe she actually called the nurse a couple of days before her colonoscopy to ask if "white wine would be considered one of the clear liquids" she was suppose to drink pre-colonoscopy!! GEEZ!

Lol!!

Well I must admit to something just as ridiculous. About 4 years ago I went to the dentist because I'd managed to accumulate some rather garish red wine stains on my teeth. I'd been drinking red wine for a while, but somehow the stains didn't show up until years later. Anyway, the hygienist asked me what I'd been drinking. I fessed up about the wine. She told me I might think about not drinking that much red wine. I said... ok, well maybe I can just drink through a straw then? Omg... the look on her face. Sounded terribly unclassy on my part, but I am ever the pragmatist Then, I thought better of it, and told her I'd just switch to drinking more white wine : )

White wine on a clear liquid diet! LOL!!!!!
Jennie, my mom started drinking her wine through a straw after having her teeth whitened! Such class from a doctor!

Oh, my neighbor decided gin was a good accompaniment to today's smoothie... reminds her of a Pim's cup. I'm cutting her off, as I don't feel good about supplying her mixers. That was soooo not my intention!

And, LDT, I may or may not try the instant roux. It feels like cheating, in a way. And my house would not get all scorchy smelling; we like that smell. It says, "Gumbo time!"
