My Friday in Food

Hi Everyone! I had a great Friday in Food. I must confess, I almost caved today and went to McDonald's because the afternoon was so busy, BUT I regained my joie de vivre and served myself a glorious lunch instead. Thanks to all of you for keeping me honest! For breakfast, I was not very hungry. I think the fish from last night was still with me! So I served myself two pieces lite whole wheat toast with butter and Marmite spread on them, about 8 walnut halves, coffee, and 1 1/2 c. smoothie made from 2 c. kefir and 1/2 c. triple berry blend from Schwan's.
Now, doesn't this lunch look WAY better than McDonald's? I had my Rock Island Stuffed Tilapia leftovers from our dinner at Red Lobster last night, a salad of romaine lettuce and grape tomatoes dressed with olive oil and vinegar, two cracked pepper Triscuits (I got full and didn't eat all 4), 1/2 c. cottage cheese for some dairy, and a glass of water.
For dinner: A bowl of Two Color Broccoli, Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Soup with a cheesy crouton, 1/2 c. cottage cheese with a pineapple ring, 4 sticks of celery spread thinly with cream cheese, and about 1/2 glass of wine that had gone past it's prime sitting on our counter. Everything ROCKED except the wine past it's prime.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Yeah! You resisted mc'd's that is hard. Really. Their siren calls get me sometime, but I never feel like I have spoiled myself. I always end up feeling dissappointed...you know? You go!

Your meals actually look very good. I also like how you are posting about your "days" in food. It does keep us honest, does't it?

Come now... Our kind does not stoop to McDonalds... once every 6 months is my limit

and look at what you did!

And when life gives you bad wine, make risotto!

Your lunch is so fresh and healthy looking! And what a gorgeous soup! I would love it if you shared the recipe.

OH! I wanted to say I found marmite up here. Weird but I happened across it a few months ago and contemplated buying it but passed it by for ponzu instead.
