This was one of our weekend lunches and it seemed like a huge lunch but it was really a healthy lunch.
Our diet plan is encouraging us to fill half of our plate with veggies and I think I accomplished that. There’s a 3 oz. hamburger patty that was grilled, with one slice of cheese, sauteed mushrooms and grilled onions. We added the butter beans for extra fiber. There’s lettuce, tomatoes from the garden with a couple of black olives and I put sugar free salsa for the dressing. The asparagus is roasted with a little parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
I wasn’t able to eat all the asparagus but I ate the meat for the protein. It’s pretty amazing how quickly we get full these days. I bought some smaller Corelle plates at Walmart yesterday. The only small plates I had were the Fiestaware and I don’t really like using those. They’re heavy and I don’t like putting them in the dishwasher . . simply because all the other dishes are Corelle and sticking them in there makes the dishwasher look messy and unorganized. I know . . I should get over that but it bothers me. Don’t even get me started on what happens when Vince sticks a dish in the dishwasher and I have to re-arrange things because he never puts it in the right place. It sounds like I’m a bit obsessive, right . . but I think I only remember him putting something in the dishwasher twice in 19 years of marriage. He probably knows how frustrating it is for me to have something in the wrong place . . like a fork mixed in with the spoons in the silverware basket! Yep . . I might have a bit of a problem there.
Tell me the truth . . are you a bit crazy when it comes to loading your dishwasher? If someone sticks something in the wrong place, do you re-arrange things so it’s where it’s supposed to be? Please say yes!
Anyway . . I now have Corelle smaller plates and they will look neat in the dishwasher so everything in my world is right again! 🙂
