It doesn't look good, but it was very tastySometimes it get's boring eating the same foods over and over again. Tonight my husband made dinner. That was special and rare! He made a delicious and interesting salsa for the fish. The salsa was made with tomatoes, corn from the cob, black beans, cilantro, parsely, chipolte peppers in adobe sauce, and a few other ingredients. It was so good. I always keep homemade salsa fresca in the refrigerator, but I really loved the new change. Tomorrow I will have the new salsa with some chicken for lunch.
The key is to change things up before everything else in the refrigerator I don't want to eat starts to look more appetizing. I love flavor, so I try to incorporate Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Mexican, or Italian flavors into my core meals. I think that's why I love browsing through cookbooks and online recipes. I'm always looking for new flavors and recipes to incorporate into what would otherwise be boring meals. Earlier today when I had a few minutes I was browsing through Thai recipes and I came across some soup recipes that I wanted to make. They are very low fat. Some ingredients were foreign to me, but I could click on the ingredients and read more about what they were and see pictures. Then there was a store locator link that told me where I could buy these exotic ingredients.
I have a few ugly pictures of my meals, but they were delicious. One meal is chicken breast with steamed broccoli, but I put 1 TBS of Soyaki on the broccoli for more flavor. It was very tasty. The other meal I cut Bok Choy and steamed it in 1/4 tsp of toasted sesame oil, and at the very end put in 1 TBS of the Soyaki. The Fillet of Sole was cooked in lemon pepper. Yum.
By the way, I love my new food scale. I used it tonight to weight the cooked cod. Knowing how many ounces I was consuming was much easier and better than guessing.

in nothing great or small,
large or petty -never give in
except to convictions of honor and good sense
