Although we did do the pantry challenge for the first few days of January, I wasn't posting and then of course, I didn't do it while we were in Seattle, because how can you when you are away from your pantry? And I didn't do it the last two days as we settled back in. So I am integrating some leftovers in as well as cooking from the pantry now. My MIL bought us Sushi last night, so...
Breakfast/Lunch was leftover sushi. I don't get the raw kind, because I can't handle raw fish. Lox is the closest I can get to raw salmon and I don't really even like that, although I can eat it. I had six pieces left off 16 from last night's dinner, so that was my lunch. I don't eat a lot because of being on the Ozempic.
Dinner was Beef Stew with potatoes and carrots. I made a gluten free gravy for it with no salt. I had a 3 cup bowl. Then I had an orange and 12 chocolate chips. That's all I will eat today. I had as much water as my cardiologist allows. I lost another pound this morning.
I have some breakfast sausage in the freezer tomorrow so I will fry that up and have it for the next few days with some cucumbers, but will be making breakfast burritos for the others tomorrow because we have a lot of eggs and sausage from our hog in the fridge. Then for dinner I plan on making a stir-fry that includes kielbasa, frozen shrimp, red, orange, and yellow bell peppers, onion and green cabbage or possibly Napa cabbage depending on which needs to be eaten first. And then basil herb brown and wild rice from a Lundgren's box mix. Or maybe Lundberg. It's organic. My box mixes are getting close to their expiration dates. I think I will either have half a mango, which is finally ripe, or a kiwi, also.
I need to sit down tomorrow and plan out the rest of the week. The bell peppers need to get used up as they are starting to wrinkle, so probably something with those.
