Tuesday's Supper


This has to be a rare occasion for me since I always post our Dinner/Supper on Sunday but, who cares, right? Since James' surgery, cooking has taken on an entirely new plan for us...it isn't hard, but a matter of sticking to what needs to be done. Gone are our decadent Southern meals and desserts.
  However, not to be outdone, I have a few tricks up my sleeve with my desserts! Look, I admit it...I am a junky when it comes to sweets, but ice cream...ooohhhh, is my weakness. It is so good that I learned how to eat the fat, sugar free brands with Blue Bell being my fave.

  I must say, James is being good about his diet now, and has settled down and accepting it well. The no salt, is his biggest complaint, but using different herbs helps to give it a little boost. Here is one meal that I prepared today. This is lunch, he pasted on dinner and will have healthy snack tonight...

You know how I love taking more thank one Pic. This is Albacore tuna, plain with veggies, baked potato, fruit and wheat crackers.
  His snack tonight will be sugar-free pudding...chocolate, lite-cool whip, with whole strawberry. It is really not bad at all, just a matter of eating portions and healthy.
  I'm so happy the carbs are higher in this diet than before, because he was always hungry. This one is much better. If you have a healthy menu you would like to share, please e-mail to me. My address is in my profile.
  I have a tutorial I want to share with you later, so stay tuned. We sure hope you have a beautiful evening with family and a peaceful night's rest!
Hugs to you all,


  1. I would still watch the carbs. Make them all whole grain.
    Spices? Best ever is Mrs. Dash. They have also come out with a table type version. (Same stuff, just ground finer.

  2. Looks good to me!! I was just going to write about Mrs. Dash when I noticed the other comment. I love the lemon pepper one....I add it just about everything. Great stuff.
    Glad to hear everything is coming along with all the changes.

  3. When I have to give up sweets & carbs, I done!

    So glad that he is doing well with the diet. My hubby's looks about the same.

    Have a great week ~
    TTFN ~

    ~GIVEAWAY end 5/13~

  4. The best advice I can give is to stay as far away from processed foods as possible. I have never been overweight. Ate what I thought was healthy my whole life. I gave up most carbs, especially the white ones, for a LONG time. Then I was hit with cancer and heart disease. Go figure! There is no 'one fit for all', I have discovered. Giving up carbs is not the answer for everyone. I discovered through research, that some of the 'healthy foods', like sweet potatoes, was not good for me. I discovered coffee, something I was led to believe was horrible for you, was something that was beneficial for me. I discovered that I wasn't supposed to have wheat in my diet at all! I had been only eating 100% whole wheat for years. That's what people were saying "we" should eat. Most grain products have wheat in it. Bottom line....do some research. Stick to more fresh and natural foods. Be wary of ice cream that has been altered. I blend fresh fruit, ice, and honey to make wonderful sorbets.

  5. I'm so glad that you are both settling into the new way of cooking/eating. Hard, but worth it.

    Gentle hugs...

  6. My favorite salt replacement is Mrs. Dash's Table Blend too!
