I wasn't very prepared today.  I did make a lunch for dinner this evening at work, but I failed to eat before I left the house.  I was running errands, and I felt like I was starving by the time I got to work.  A girl who works here brought some chicken salad and cheesecake to share with everybody, and I just couldn't resist.  The chicken salad wasn't bad when it comes to carbs but the slice of cheesecake I had contained as many carbs as I'm supposed to be eating in 2 days!  It was so good, though. . .back on the wagon tomorrow!

I love spaghetti, and I've really been missing it.  My mom makes very good spaghetti sauce, and I've tried to duplicate her recipe.  It's not as good as hers (of course!), but it's pretty darn good regardless.  I added some mushrooms.  They make everything taste better!

Instead of noodles, I cooked a spaghetti squash.  I used the method of cutting it in half first and baking at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  It's a great alternative to traditional pasta.

I also have a salad with an egg, some olives, a strawberry, some blueberries and cantaloupe.  I let the cantaloupe sit on the cabinet for a couple of days this time after I bought it to ensure it was ripe.  Last time I bought a cantaloupe I cut it too soon and it wasn't quite ripe.  Yuck.

When I got home my sister had cooked cornish game hens.  I ate half of one.  It was good.

  1. Random suggestion from a fellow low-carber: I make pasta sauce with lots of meat and put it over steamed green beans instead of pasta. My kids actually like it better. :) Good luck and thanks for all the little tips. :)
