Try saying that 10x fast! I was in the mood for a Mexican style meal the other night so I created these finger foods. I used to eat taco salads all the time during my teenage years. You know the ones with an enormous taco shell bowl/crust. Anyhow, this a way to make a much healthier version (using Belgian endive leaves as shells) while still getting most of the taste and texture on that old favorite.
On the personal front, Mad's been doing great. Two friends recently commented on how beautiful and healthy she looked. These gal-pals began inquiring about how Mad was losing the weight and one went as far as asking about menu suggestions. One of these ladies is a new mom and would benefit tremendously from a positive change in lifestyle. Is there anything better than inspiring positive changes in others?
Weight-wise, I'm still stable at about 180 lbs and Mad's slowly but surely continuing to drop on the scale. No hiccups to speak of on the LC front.
PS - We tried a new variation of stuffed tomatoes this evening. Instead of using cream cheese, we used drained ricotta. Much, much better! The combination of parmesan, provolone, ricotta and soft goat cheese + fresh basil + fresh cracked pepper + red pepper flakes and sea salt really popped! It was oh so pizza-like. Mmmm.
