April Challenge Update and Food Happenings

Let's catch up on some food happenings, shall we?

On Monday, I made Tuna Noodle Casserole for the very first time. And I made the sauce by scratch. Mmm mmm.




Each serving was only about 320 calories. I've been eating the leftovers for lunch and I believe it's just as good re-heated as when it came out of the oven.

I made salmon patties, homemade macaroni and cheese with a side of vegetables last night.




We didn't get a chance to eat until 9:00 p.m. I worked until 6:00, then had to rush home and get ready for family pictures with my mom's side, then we visited and grabbed her recipe for salmon patties, and then we finally got home, made dinner, ate and fell asleep. Whew, Tuesday was a long day.

Recipe for Salmon Patties:

1 (14 oz) can salmon
1-2 squirts of mustard
1 tbsp. worcester sauce
2 eggs (yes, use two, don't try to use only one like I did)
4 slices of bread, broken up

Form patties, fry in oil. Enjoy!

Tuesday is also my weigh-in day for my April Challenge. I went up a pound (darn Easter candy), which brings me to 230 lbs for this weigh-in. I only ate out once last week, as part of my goal to eat out no more than once per week. Two weeks in a row of sticking to that goal! I'm excited to see what great things this last week of my April Challenge will bring!

What are your goals, and how are you doing?
Tried any new recipes lately?
