February 9th, 2009: Dinner

Hi guys!!  Quickie post this evening!  I’m dragging and am glad I don’t have anything to do tonight other than put some jammies on and relax with Scott.  Well after Rocky gets an evening walk.:D

Lunch didn’t sit well with me and it’s my fault.  First I had those two prunes then I had the fiber flax bread for lunch.  Oh when will I learn my lesson that I cannot tolerate that much concentrated fiber?  Lord.  Finally after my stomach settled back down I could make some dinner.  Scott was having leftovers, so that left only me to worry about.  Since I didn’t get a fruit at lunch, I knew I needed one for dinner.  And I wanted an orange.  Then I remembered how well orange pairs with red onion (sounds odd I know but it’s so yummy!) and decided to make a salad off of those.

It was so pretty and almost sunshiney!  I chopped up half an orange and let that sit with some slice red onion.  I squeezed a little bit of the orange juice over that.  The juice helps cut the strong onion flavor and mellow it out.  I chopped up some grape tomatoes and let all that hang out for a bit.  I made a small dressing out of mustard, red wine vinegar, and olive oil.  Also in the salad is:

  • Romaine
  • Spinach
  • Pine nuts
  • Sunflower and pumpkin seeds
  • Cranberries

I added the orange mixture on top and then the dressing on top of that!

Along with my salad I had the other 1/2 of the fish from Saturday night, a wee dollop of mashed potatoes, some carrot sticks, and then green beans.  Frozen green beans I heated on the stove in a pot with chick broth, 1 garlic clove, a bunch of buffalo sauce, S&P.  Very yummy and took on the buffalo sauce flavor!

In the middle is the rest of my orange and bread + butter for Scott.  I ate everything plus one small bite of Scott’s pork roast. :D

Now it’s off to relax and make sure I hit the hay early tonight!

P.S.  Comment on this post of Bobbi’s to enter in a nutty giveaway!  Tomorrow is the last day!
