What a fantastic dinner last night!! Disease-Proof Your Child is definitely not a weight-loss book. I did not expect to lose weight on this book, but I have also not gained any weight back. Not even one ounce. My problem in the past has been losing weight and then gaining it right back. So this blog is my attempt at teaching myself how to cook, how to maintain a healthy weight--but in a fun and totally satisfying/ tasty way! So far, so good! This has been an incredible experience!! I have learned so much--just by picking up and doing it. Not just reading, but doing. Come and join me!! I love to hear your comments, and again thank you all for reading!!
Last night we made:
Wild Rice and Broccoli
The Eggplant Sicilian was out of this world yummy--and pretty easy to make. I didn't quite understand from the instructions how I was supposed to layer, so I sort of winged it. But it turned out great! Very tasty, very filling--we gave it an A. The Wild Rice and Broccoli was super easy and really good too. Very simple side dish. Not alot of flavors going on--which was good. The wild rice and broccoli were enough. We gave it an A. They went very well together!
The Fuhrman Fudgsicles were super rich--and just not our thang. I had to run them under hot water a long time to get them out--and they were sort of melty by then. And, we are more ice-cream-in-a-bowl type people, than ice-cream-on-a-stick type people. It was super rich from the nuts and I think overall we like the lighter ice creams--with more fruit. I did however, throw some tangerine juice into a few of the popcicle makers and they were super yummy!! I called them Tangerinsicles!!
