P3 Day 8

LIW +1.2

Wow. Yesterday was one busy day. It started out at the farmer's market where I can spend entirely too much time, especially on a day when I apparently didn't have any time to waste. I left with arms full of eggplant, and cabbage, and avocados, oh my - among many other things. Then went to the china town market and wandered through the grand opening of a store there looking at all the packages for which I knew none of the ingredients. Then it was off to Whole Foods to pick up a few items for my morning of baking before the festivities began. I made a blueberry cream cheese coffee cake, blueberry muffins, and chocolate cupcakes. Everything went over really well and they didn't even realize it was 'diet' food. I think we might need a new oven though. It's cooking at crazy speeds. If something normally takes 30 mins, our oven is cooking it in 15. Weird.

I had no problems staying on phase 3 yesterday. My only issue was when we went to my in-laws, I expected one of her fabulous fresh from the garden salads, and it was nowhere to be found! There was plenty of corn, and baked potatoes, and bbq beans, and fettucine alfredo, however. Too bad for me! ;) So I settled on the grilled chicken, fresh tomatoes, and cottage cheese. Sound familiar phase 2ers?!

So much to do today and so little time. Amazing how quickly a house can turn into a wreck when mom suddenly gets ill. Time to get started!

Happy Monday!

It's wonderful that you are still within 2 lbs without doing another steak day.

Diet cheese coffee cake, chocolate cupcakes??????? DIET?
I read how you came out with all these veggies, & then the next sentence was about CAKE - LOL. What did you do with the veggies? I would love to know what you do with eggplant. Next I suppose you'll be telling me you snuck em in the cake batter. lol.

That is so funny about the in-laws... just when you're ready to eat some of their salads, they don't have it! At least there was other stuff there. It must be a huge crowd over there with all that food! I guess your MIL is a baker cook like you. I guess those people do not have a weight problem!

Great to read your blog! I'm glad your eyes are back. :-)

Renee-Did you ask about Laura's Beef? I might be losing my mind? You can buy it at grocery stores like Kroger etc.

I told everyone I much preferred to bring a veggie tray or something. Less baking! LOL!

I use the eggplant to make baba ghannouj, eggplant lasagna, eggplant parmesan, and more & more & more! Love it!
