Don't think about what
you can't eat;
how you want to feel--
like a winner.

TODAY IN REVIEW
Tonight I made a dinner modeled after one I had in a restaurant recently. It was really delicious! We baked spaghetti squash, scooped it out into a strip across the center of the plate, covered it with fresh spinach sauteed in a little olive oil with shallot, garlic, a few pine nuts, topped it with sauteed shrimp, and topped that with a bit of Parmesan. Before I had a similar dish at the restaurant, I had only eaten spaghetti squash with some kind of tomato on it. This was really tasty! And since Hubby baked the squash and peeled the shrimp for me, my part went really quickly!
At work this PM, they had a cocktail party--the second one in the last 2 months, so I think they are becoming a trend. They had beer, wine, wine coolers, and tortilla chips with various toppings--guacamole, salsa, sour cream, black beans, warmed cheese sauce. I was really busy so thankfully didn't have time to linger. But I was also hungry. Here's what I did-- are you ready??
I took the smallest of the 2 plate options. Scooped out a spoonful of black beans and topped it with salsa. Felt like one big glow of nutrition self-righteousness! Woo-hoo. Go, Sandy! Go, Sandy!
