Anybody out there? (11/25 Lunch)

It feels like I'm talking to myself. I guess that's OK, because I do that quite often. Sometimes I even answer myself, which I know is a sign of insanity ... or maybe it's just a good imagination. I can carry on conversations in my head.

Of course, it'd be nice to know someone else is listening. So if you want to drop me a comment, I'd be much obliged.

After being sick yesterday, I feel pretty good today. I slept in until about 11 a.m. and then had a WW 2-Point Fruit & Nut bar (not pictured). After doing a bit of cleaning for my roommate's guests Thursday, I whipped up a delicious healthy lunch.

Using leftover tomato paste from last week's Crock Pot Stuffed Peppers, I made myself some meat sauce with 3 oz. lean ground beef, 1/4 cup onions, 1/4 cup chopped mushroom and basil, oregano, garlic powder and onion powder (3 Points). I put it over a serving of whole wheat pasta (another 3 Points) and topped it with 2 T reduced fat mozzarella and a grilled zucchini.

It was delicious ... and it took care of the craving I had for something gooey and cheesy. (Last night, had I had the money and anyone else would have been interested, I would have called out for pizza at work. I'm glad I didn't, though. I ended up having a 25-Point day ... forgot to add in the teryaki tuna and crackers I ate at my desk last night when I said I'd only eaten 16. I'd actually had 21, and then went home and fixed myself a can of Eating Right spaghettios, bringing the total to 25. Still a pretty good day, considering most of what I ate was junk food.)
