New kitchen toy!!!

Here it is the Xpress Redi-Set-Go Cooker w/4 Removable Cooking Pans from QVC, item #K30405

Above are the 3 pans that came with it: mini muffin, heart shape and bundt.

This is the omelet pan above, each half is almost 6" long!!

The red unit above with lid closed. Xpress Redi-Set-Go Cooker

The egg portion is HUGE! I used 2 eggs, and some pepper, beat them and poured into each half. It took about 4 minutes to cook.

There is a 1/2 slice of ham on each half of the Arnold Select Sandwich Thin. I used the whole wheat. The thin is 100 calories for the top AND bottom, with 5 grams protein! I found them at Walmart.
There is also 1/8 cup of shredded cheese in the ham.
I ate only 1/2 of the meal, and I am full! Will save the other half for another meal!

Nutritional info: the 1/2 of the sandwich I ate gave me 215 calories and 15-1/2 grams protein.
Not too shabby! and it was delicious!

My review: Yes I LOVE IT! Altho I've only cooked one thing in it, I can see it will be very useful, especially in making bariatric friendly meals for me.

fri june 4

scram eggs for breakfast
a lovely headache is with me today
and its raining, at least i dont have to water the garden.

thursday i had the usual scram eggs at breakfast and grilled chicken with cheese for lunch. supper was a couple french fries and bite of chicken wrap at a spy job i do. of course the fries have upset my system. suppose i should have bit and spit as i talked about with a friend. ya have to taste test the food for the spy job. oh well it pays a few bucks so i'll live.
at least i didn't go nuts and eat ALL the food while spying.

so far this month i have been about 98% good when it comes to food. walked twice. have 2 more spy jobs today and a couple things to pick up at the stores.

Tuesday June 1st, 2010

Happy June first! I am starting again to get myself back where I need to be. I am bummed cuz I have gained and am near 200 again. I had to buy size 18 pants cuz the 14's did not fit anymore :(
that sucks, but its all my fault.

Had the usual scram egg breakfast, made a protein shake for later. Lunch was some chicken, a later snack was a bit more of scram eggs, and the rest of the chicken for the 4th meal. couple pieces of string cheese, 1/2 of the shake, and lots of iced coffee today! got another pot brewing now.

We went to the funeral of a dear little boy who was not quite 3 years old; Casey, who lost his battle with leukemia, but now is with God in heaven and suffers no more. What a beautiful little boy he was! The photos at the funeral home were so happy and his smile! He looks so like his mom Jenny, who was our neighbor--we met her when she was 5 years old. Please remember them in your prayers. Casey has an older brother who I believe is 5, Conner.

I would also appreciate prayers that I stay on track and can get this extra weight off and feel better about myself.

Ok gotta get going, have a blessed day!
