Soup's On...

Got the soup on the stove simmering. I made an Italian meatball/vegetable soup. We shall see how it tastes. I just kinda made it up as I went along. If it's any good I'll put it on my recipe page later. It's all low fat and has half the sodium.

I got a phone call from the nephew this morning to remind me they were coming this weekend. At least I did remember that but I had forgotten if they were coming tonight or tomorrow night. He cleared that up for me and they are coming tonight. Sometime in the middle of the night after he gets of grave yard shift. When he asked me what I was doing I told him I was making the vegetable soup that I usually make when they come. He said yummmmm until I told him that it was going to be low fat because I want to be able to eat some too. He had the nerve to say, "in other words bland." I assured him that it would be tasty and definitely NOT bland, just good for you. The niece is always trying to lose weight but doesn't have the will power to stick with it. She will probably come here with several bags of potato chips. What she does is hops up and says, "Lets go for a walk." Then when they get back she dives into the chips saying, "Now I can eat these." I used to laugh about it before I started this new lifestyle but now I may hide the chips. She's not obese just a little on the chunky side sometimes. And she does get down to the weight and size she wants to be from time to time. She doesn't cook AT ALL. He does the cooking if there is ever any done. She works two jobs and they aren't home a lot together. I will give him some recipes he can make for her that will be healthy.

Oops, forgot to mention that I'm up 2 pounds this week. :o( But that's okay, because I'm wearing the smaller bra that I couldn't get into last month. And I finally had to move my favorite ring to the middle finger. Oh, and I almost forgot. I found 4 really cute light weight sweaters at Cato's yesterday and one of them is a large. The other three are x-large.

See ya later!

I've learned not to tell people that the food that I've made is 'healthy'. If I tell them at all, I try to wait until AFTER they've eaten it and complimented it!

Congrat on the new clothes. I was so excited Tuesday when I went shopping with my sister. I tried on a 16W tunic top that fit except it showed to much cleavage and the sleeves were too long so it stayed at the store. I wasn't expecting that. They two lbs will be gone by next week cause you aren't going to have chips after your walks with your niece. Have a great time with them. Hey if the soup is low sodium and half way good I want the recipe.

Hi Debbie, The angel food pumpkin recipe was posted by Carolyn last year. It's delicious. Here's the link to her post with the recipe.

The soup sounds good. Glad you have company to look forward to. When I have company that comes with snack food I stay away from it. Not even one little taste, then I am not as likly to chow down on it. Now real home made sweets...that would be a problem.

Congrats on the smaller bra. I THINK that's good news, right? :-)

When I make a low-fat recipe, I never tell anyone. When they ask for seconds, then they get the news!

said: tata! early on.

Oh, it's good to catch up with what's going on in your world!

Congrats on the new sweaters! Sizes are almost as fickle as the scale, I think.

Good for you for fixing the healthy version of your soup! I can tell a difference sometimes in healthier recipes, but it usually just takes a couple of times having it before I'm used to it.

Hope you have a great visit with your family!
