Tuesday dinner

I have decided to stay away from breads and other obvious carbohydrates this whole week (starting today). This is a great sacrifice for me, since whenever I feel hungry, I always go to cereals, fruits, and breads. It would be great to get some points for it, but I am just doing it to show myself I can (it's sort of what smokers do, isn't it). Except I recognize I am hooked on bread. After all, I was born and live in Spain :)

Well, I planned my second supper without cheese, fruit or bread. I took a picture of the shredded vegetables on the pan and had high hopes of posting this recipe. I like plain flavors (no spices), but thinking Charlie and her spiced up recipes, I decided to crush some colorful peppercorns on the veggies. Well, the jar came open somehow and all the peppercorns fell on the vegetables. I spent the next 20 minutes picking peppercorns off the veggies to try to save dinner. They were reproducing like crazy! Well, I used some of the veggies to make pasta sauce for my family--blent in with the tomato sauce and all, they claim it wasn't bad, except when they accidentally would chew on one. My "plain" veggies were not that good. Next time, no spices.

So this is how my recipe ended up in the "humor post". Oh well. . . it's been a while since I couldn't finish my food. As we say here. . .No hay mal que por bien no venga.

I laughed so hard!! It sounds like something I would do! for sure! I still can´t stop laughing!

I think your idea of giving up carbs is better than my idea of a cleanse. I am paying for that idea with two days of headaches. uhhhggg! I didn´t think it would hit me so hard.

Well, keep on the good eating cause week six- nix the fix will be coming up and will get points for your good eating! ;)

This week will be week 5 keep it alive! jeje
Have to think up some extra points for this.

thanks for the humor!

Oh No! I can just picture this happening in my home! I can't even imagine doing no bread for a week. I think I would get so crabby that my family would force feed me some "pan" so they could live with me.
