For lunch today I made some meatballs for myself and my daughter.  I mixed hamburger meat with garlic, onion, an egg, salt and pepper and shaped it into small balls.  I put them in a skillet and browned both sides then added a can of ro-tel and let it finish cooking.  They were pretty good, but I forgot to get *mild* ro-tel, so they were a little spicy.  Karma ate a bite of one and told me she didn't like it, and decided she wanted corndog muffin.  So I ended up making a batch of corndog muffins.  I got the great idea from this website.  That lady is so creative! 

For dinner I decided to use the rest of the lettuce and tomato salad I had from earlier this week.  I added cucumber, some homemade tuna salad and shredded cheddar cheese on top along with a fish shaped egg.  (I know, I know!  The shaped eggs are supposed to be for kids, but they amuse me.)  The tuna salad is really simple:  canned albacore tuna, a couple of boiled eggs, some onion, a little bit of mayo and salt and pepper.   The cool thing is that the tuna salad acts as a dressing for the salad.  Since I'm excited that I can eat fruit now on Atkins, I'm trying to eat some every day.  I have some canteloupe, grapes and a couple of strawberries.  Yummy!

When I came home from work I had a fruit salad with strawberries, canteloupe and grapes.  I also had some taco salad with lettuce, tomato, onion, olives and some meat I seasoned with taco meat and added mushrooms to.  I also made it for lunch tomorrow.
