I Never Met A...

that I didn't like. The blank can be filled with the food of your choice. For me it was potsticker. I loves those juice little Chinese dumplings. They are my favorite thing to order esp. when I'm sick. Talk about comfort food. Well, I hadn't met one I didn't like until Friday night. And it wasn't so much the dumpling itself as the accompanying side. JC served up fried rice with fake chicken and edamame. It didn't look natural. The edamame looked like little green spaceships. As for the 'chick'n', it felt weird.

On the plus side, at my weigh-in I am down another 1.4 lbs. This week's menu is a little bit better. I am trying to mix up the veggies that I have so that I don't get bogged down in the same thing every night. Although, I could eat broccoli and asparagus every day. Tonight, I'm having a tomato that's been stuffed with spinach, onions and mushrooms. I'll be checking the coming sales for slaw mix. I want to saute it with a little olive oil, chopped onions, black pepper and garlic. I like my veggies crunchy.

What veggies do you like? And how do you like to prepare them? Please share. I'll be looking for more ideas as I travel the road to a healthy new me.

Congrats on the weigh in!

I like my veggies spicy, so I love pickled peppers. Though the pickling kind of takes away whatever goodness they had to begin with. Pepperonicini are favorite.

That "blank" would be a potato. Or anything with bacon. Me bad.

As for veggies, I eat em all. I've tried using Spike Seasoning on steamed veggies which helps a bit. I also like to heat some veggies up in a bit of spicy sesame oil which gives them a bit more flavor.

But lets not talk about broccoli which I can't eat without a glob of mayo...yeah, one of my vices :)

I like my veggies to have some personality, too.

Bacon is the root of all goodness. I saw a website yesterday that had chocolate bacon caramels. All of my favorite things wrapped into one.

i heart me some pho. i think i've only ever had a bad bowl of pho twice.

i like my veggies asianized. you can't go wrong with black bean sauce, or hoisin sauce, or hot/sour-ized. i'm just saying.

Lan-I had some asparagus last week that I tossed with some sesame oil, garlic, onion, red pepper flakes, a touch of soy and five spice powder. It was so good.
