I had five friends over for dinner on Sunday night, and two of them are vegetarian, so an all-veggie meal was planned. Everyone bought a contribution. Kim made the chickpea & feta salad that everyone on WW raves about. Beth did portabella mushrooms stuffed with bell peppers & cheese. I attempted the grilled romaine that both Melissa & Flo have blogged about recently.
But the pièce de résistance was Sarah’s grilled corn with lime. Seriously, best corn ever! Basically, you grill the corn as normal, then cut a lime into wedges, and put a mixture of salt & black pepper in a bowl. You dip a wedge of lime in the salt & pepper, then rub it all over the ear of grilled corn. So freaking good.
The best thing was, the points for this feast were pretty low…enough that I could splurge on a piece of peach cobbler for dessert, and still be down a pound the next day. 🙂
Talking of losses, my body played catch-up this week, after the past two weeks where I only lost 0.6lbs and then maintained. This week I tried to minimize the eating out, and I was rewarded with a 3.4 lb loss, bringing my total to 60.6lbs this year.
Now I’m away from home again, this time in PA with my kids, my BFF and her kids. My eating is a slight splurge compared to home, but we are getting in a decent amount of exercise. Hopefully there won’t be too much scale damage to contend with when I get home on Friday.
