Day Three

Day three of more conscientious eating began as most Saturdays do here in the fifthlampdown house:
Breakfast was pancakes, sausage and eggs. (packaged sausage and pancake mix from a box...baby steps)

I made a huge personal sacrifice today (o.k. maybe that's overstating a bit) and didn't get lunch out when I went to work, as is my wont.
You have to understand that I work across the street from Brasa and Punch Pizza. These are supremely tasty places!
I stood firm, though, and made myself a corn beef sandwich with fresh basil and lettuce from the garden, baby carrots and a coconut yogurt.

Dinner was barbecued chicken thighs, pan roasted brussels sprouts and a delicious fresh loaf of NY Times No-Knead Bread.

Yesterday we tried the Cream-Filled Snack Cake recipe from Homemade Pantry, and the kids' reaction was that it tasted like corn bread. It was quite tasty, but I don't think we need to make it again any time soon.

What's on the menu at your house?

Ribs on the grill, corn on the cob, and something else. I'm not sure. I'm not cooking tonight! :-)
