Friday Five

  1. Miracle of miracles, I made a supper that Little Princess, Prince Charming and all ate. And it wasn't something like hamburgers or pizza. I made a lean roast and barley with squash, onions and peppers. She ate the roast and picked out the squash and ate it. I have to find new recipes for barley. She didn't care for the barley but I don't care! she ate supper and it was healthy! Woohoo!

    Barley and Squash

    1/2 squash cubed
    1 onion chopped
    1 pepper chopped
    1 cup barley
    2 cups chicken broth
    Poultry Seasoning

    Cook first three ingredients in Pam coated pan for about 3 minutes. Add Barley and cook an additional 3 minutes. Add chicken broth, seasoning and salt and pepper. Cook for about 30 - 35 minutes. I added additional bullion for extra flavoring. Yummy!

  2. I made the best snack last night.

    Chocolate Oatmeal Pancakes

    1/2 cup oatmeal
    1 tsp baking powder
    6 heaping tsp splenda
    1/4 cup ff plain yogurt
    1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce.
    1 egg

    Combine ingredients and cook like pancakes. Flip when browned on one side. Cooks very fast. Quick snack to make.
  3. I have been feeling really good about myself lately. Thanks to Prince Charming I am feeling confident and sexy. And I love how this feels. I have never felt this way.
  4. I found some special lingerie that I bought when I got married that I haven't been able to wear in years. You should have seen the look on Prince Charmings face when I tried it on.
  5. Prince Charming is getting a kick out of all the new grains we are trying. Every day he goes to school and tells his classmate what I am feeding him. LOL. It is really funny to me that he is so amused.

Awesome! Thanks for visiting me. I'm just so horrible at this site. I couldn't figure it out. Sad, huh?!
Anyway, it's wonderful that you are making such healthy dishes. You are setting your daughter up for success in the future.
Have a great weekend!

Good for you, it's great when the whole family eats healthy and not just the "dieters". Same here, my DH is loving the new grains too.

Great recipe! I wonder if this will work dropping tablespoons full in muffin tins and baking them??

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
