Wow, what a selection of food! I see you are back drinking wine. Were those lamb chops and beef cooked by your wife? It certainly looks more like a restaurant presentation.

Nancy,

We took a two-day mini-vacation to celebrate our anniversary. Luckily for us, there were plenty of LC-friendly gourmet foods to choose from. It was a real treat. :-)

Ha! Apparently there's a prankster working for Blogger! :-)

Lamb is super simple to cook. In fact, we were just talking about cooking more of it at home. So simple to make and so delicious. Having said all that, the last two times we've had lamb ... it's been at a restaurant. We love it!

Mr. V,

Happy to see you! I've been thinking about you and wondering how you're doing.

I've resumed my red wine routine but generally when we're out for dinner or at a friend's house. I still don't have a glass on a daily basis. I'm at my goal weight now so I feel like I can occassionally loosen up a little and enjoy some healthy foods and beverages that aren't extremely LC.

I'll use my scale/weight as a measure of how much wine and other foods (such as berries) I can consume while maintaining my desired weight (175-180).

All the foods pictured, over the past few days, have been from a mini-vacation we just took in celebration of our meeting and wedding anniversaries. The cooking duties were in the hands of highly skilled professionals. They did good! :-)

My best to you, your Mom and your family. Please let us know if we can be of support during this challenging time.

[hugs]

Thanks, Oct!

I'm thrilled that you're achieving so much success with your experimentation. Wonderful news!
