What's for supper on our new diet/food plan?

Have you ever cooked in grape seed oil? I was pleasantly surprised. I cooked pork tenderloin which the meat guy cut into slices for us using the grapeseed oil and it was good that way without needing additional sauces. I also cooked some fresh green beans which were good also. We could have a cup and a half of veggies but there was only enough for a cup for each of us so I finished my Taylor farms kale salad mixture. I also cooked in the crock pot a couple of chicken breasts that I took out of the freezer a few days ago. I'm not sure what I'll use that for yet but at least they won't go to waist. What's for supper in your neck of the woods?

@MarshaMusselman We eat fish at least 4 times a week.

@LadyDuck I doubt we'll ever eat that much. Once a week would be a good start but we've never done that either, yet.

That sounds good. I think I had that once but years ago. Well have pizza some nights but made with cauliflower crust or other ingredients.

@MarshaMusselman I had a pizza with cauliflower crust one time, it was delicious!

@kobesbuddy I hope that will be the case for us too because my husband is being picky about the food in choosing to cook for us even though he thinks he may have already lost a little of his belly.

We use it sometimes - I like that it's mostly easy clean up too! Tonight we're going to have leftover spaghetti!

I have to make up some food ahead of time so it's easily available for days when I'm working and can't cook

@MarshaMusselman That's the way to do it. It's certainly a lifesaver to be able to heat up stuff rather than make a whole production in the kitchen after work and having to eat late.

@much2say it is but it's also time consuming to decide ahead of time what too have and then make it all ahead of time. My daughter does it so they don't eat too late when they get home from work but I've not done so. Recently I have figured out what to have the next day but sometimes we decide that day or I wing it.

Yes, grape seed oil is a very healthy alternative to butter and I have used it a time or two but I still prefer butter.

Do you use butter in your cooking too?

@rebelann I'll keep that in mind too then. I've never used it for cooking.

We had beef stew in the crockpot. Lots of turnip, parsnips, carrots, onions, celery and even some potatoes. It was tasty. Then we finished the rhubarb pie I had made on the weekend.

Bit your meal and dessert sounds good. Around here most make a strawberry rhubarb pie maybe for those that don't like rhubarb alone.

@MarshaMusselman strawberries are not even blossoming yet. The rhubarb is ready. The custard pie is tart, but oh so good.

@Morleyhunt you made this from your own garden then? Here in Michigan nothing is blossoming other than flowers. It's think that you being in Canada would be in a similar situation. I didn't like plain rhubarb when I was a child. I don't know how it's feel about it now.

We had leftover roast pork last night and there is still enough for a meal tonight. We might make slices into fritters.

Do you chop up or shred the meat first? I don't think we can have that yet as flour isn't on our list.

@MarshaMusselman We would cut thin slices and coat them in batter before frying them.

@JudyEv I've never made fritters before but I don't think for is in this diet at least not right away so maybe we can try that down the road.

@thislittlepennyearns the baked beans with the other two because it's a second protein. Although I guess we eat it with hotdogs or hamburgers which makes it another protein for those meals too. I just never thought about it.

My husband likes pasta salad but can't eat them right now. I like macaroni and potato salad but will refrain from buying them for his sake.

I've never cooked with grapeseed oil (olive oil is my usual). Glad you enjoyed your dinner We had turkey, baked sweet potatoes and broccoli

Yum. Well have turkey eventually although it's not something I normally buy it's in a lot of recipes. I thought grapeseed oil was the only one, that we sell, that I could use. But I found out since then that canola and olive oil are in recipes too.

I have seen grapeseed oil in the store several times but never bought it. Glad you like it. I just had hot dogs and creamed corn.

I haven't tried it but it sounds good to try. I am still thinking about what to have for supper later. It is still early morning out here yet.
