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.

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!

wed. feb 17

last nite sucked, i had bad back pains yest so went to chiro, it helped but got worse last nite again, had a pain pill cuz i could not stand it, and put heating pad on. the pain pill helped me sleep but i forgot to take my migraine med so woke with a migraine and more back pain.

8 am usual breakfast, while i am making deviled eggs for soup at church tonite. must go study sign language and the other classes, big test today and giving my talk tonite at class.

got a c on the test grrr. and had a handful of raisins, peanuts and about 6 m&ms (from trail mix) gonna go lie down on heating pad and have a sf fudge bar first. studied sign lang. am ready for class, weather is not cooperating was snowing.

2:15 ish, well i guess when you find something you like, eat it a lot. i think the chicken was grilled, or boiled, not sure, but i had cut it up into chunks, and frozen it. had about a cup, slathered with a wee bit of sgetti sauce and a ton of cheese, and broiled it in the oven. OhMyGosh! its yummy, burned the cheese a bit but added some of the Kay's Natural parmesan chips (crushed) to it. im full and not even done with it! see what a dense protein does to fill you up. i don't feel any better tho, cept the lunch is good.

2 pieces of string cheese on the way home from school, part of a protein shake.

supper was breakfast again and part of a cheese bun with pepperoni and sgetti sauce.

Feb 15th

My friend Penny suggested I blog what I eat as a diary so I am accountable and its kind of like a journal and we all know how much I "love to journal" (not!) so here I go :) (thanks Penny! are you journaling too?)

Monday, Feb. 15th
Breakfast at 7:45 am
1/2 cup scram egg
1 tbsp. apple mix (apples, splenda, sf butterscotch pudding, bit of lemon juice, cinnamon, all cooked in the pressure cooker for 15 min)
2 tbsp. cottage cheese

Also made one of my usual protein shakes, 1 scoop cookies n cream matrix, 1/2 scoop of choc matrix, 2 pieces of banana about 1" each, sprinkle of sf white choc pudding, some davinci and ice. made about a 20 oz shake, which I will later divide up into 2 servings.

Am going now to sort the bird category of the unmounteds so I can try to get my dining room table back. It's covered with rubber! Literally!

Later I will make a dozen eggs for the scram egg that I usually eat for breakfast, that will last me about 5 days, eggs are 99¢ a dozen at Kwik Trip right now! I stocked up for the deviled eggs I make for church's soup supper which starts this week with Ash Wed. services.

Midmorning I am drinking orange walmart brand of cl, and a highlander grog/choc fudge mix of decaf and skim.
11:30 2 pieces of string cheese

Lunch around 1 pm was more of my chef salad from yest. I had a hankering for turkey and salad so got a chef salad. It gave me 2 meals!

Protein coffee or most of one, around 5ish, then at 6:30 I had about a cup of diced chicken broiled with some tomato sauce and lots of cheese. 1 tsp of peanut butter cuz i was still "hungry" after and a sf fudge bar.
now i'll work on more of the orange fake cl and ice water the rest of the nite. did not get the walk with the stroller in cuz the school was busy with a tournament.
time for homework!
