Keeps on giving

Now if you've tried the Dr. Oz thing, by now I'm sure you're pretty sick of chicken,turkey and fish....

I was! And I saw Dan sneek me a couple of evil looks come dinner time!!!

Well I decided to add shrimp to the rotation. Shrimp is low in calories and is reat in salads or with that 1/2 cup brown rice.....

Thank god I had a big bag in my freezer ! Shrimp is something I only buy on sale; like half off or $5.00 off.

And even if it is not on the list I added spaghetti squash...If you've been on a diet....you know the spaghetti squash! Low in calories, low in taste, but pretty filling.

That vegetable broth of his? I found it too expensive, so it was better for a while to buy the Campbell's salt free vegetable broth, but to us it tastes too much of onions! So I got into the habit
of keeping onion butts and parsley stems and cabbage leaves in a zipper bag in the freezer for the next batch of broth....Yummy!

We usually drink it with a small can of V-8. A nice snack in a busy day.

But what I really wanted to share with you today is this beautiful amaryllis we have in our living room.

I got it at the grocery store in mid-December. It had started to shoot one tiny tim stem.
So I saved it and since I turned the pot everyday it eventually got straight and gave us 2 flowers.

A couple of weeks later, I first thought that it was the leaves coming out, but surprise! 2 new stems.

And with 4 flowers each! They are so lovely! They bring me joy in this cold February afternoon.

For supper tonight stirfry with siratachi noodles (wonder no calorie noodles)

Your Amaryllis is gorgeous! Sounds like a serious commitment to the diet.
