It's A Good Thing

I think I spent more time in the kitchen today than I do in a typical week. I made a variation on my Delish Squished Fish Disks, two batches of Macaroni And Cheese Soup, and a couple loaves of low fat, low calorie Zucchini Bread. Move over Martha Stewart!

The tuna cakes were just for regular eats today for my hubby and me, but I made the soup and the larger bread for a family that needs it right now. I good friend of mine brought their situation to my attention and I have a hard time denying anybody help when it is within my means. We will enjoy the smaller of the two loaves tomorrow as it is too late to be eating something so close to bedtime. It just came out of the oven though and the amazing smell has got me drooling all over this keyboard!

- 11 glasses of water
- 1 large banana

- 5 cups low fat popcorn
- 2 homemade tuna cakes
- 1 pear
- 3 spoonfuls of homemade macaroni and cheese soup

- 50 minutes walk
- 8 push ups

  2. Ah, you're a good woman 266. You have a big heart and an ever shrinking body!

  3. "Delish Squished Fish Disks" - try saying that 3x's fast!!
    It all sounds very, very good - and you get some good karma points for helping out a family in need.
    Gonna share your zucchini bread recipe?

  4. Delish Squished Fish Disks; sounds like something they serve in my university's dining hall.

  5. So kind of you to help out another in need!!! We all need to do more of that!

  6. I found the recipe for the zucchini loaves on Spark People here:

    I only had two eggs in my fridge though, so I substituted them in for the 5 egg whites. I haven't tried the bread yet, but I will very soon and I will report back on how it is!
