Woo Hoo!


Today marks the end of our 6 weeks Biggest Loser Challenge at work and I lost 13 pounds (while still eating all the delicious food you've read about on here), making me the Biggest Loser at work. See it can be done, dieting can be tasty. So I look forward to starting the next round, hoping to continue in my success. See weight loss doesn't look so daunting if I think about it in 6 week chunks. If I can do it again, I'll be down 26 pounds by the time school's out for summer (hopefully fitting into my shorts!). It's kinda nice to have the momentum of this challenge to go into the next one.
And I know, I haven't posted recipes for a few days. I'm still cooking, but I'm at the end of my 2 week cooking run, meaning we're eating up what's left, clearing out for the next shop. I'm so excited to shop this week. I've decided to make a Thai Carrot Salad (which I've never made before, but my favorite Thai restaurant is closed for the next 2 weeks, which saddens me greatly because we were going to go there to celebrate my husband's birthday and had to move the party elsewhere). And if I'm making the Thai salad then I need to make a Thai Curry to go along with it, and I may as well add a Chicken Satay too. Really, I need no excuse to make Thai food, or go for Thai food for that matter, it's just so tasty. Also on plan for the future is my first try at Kafta, which is an amazing Lebanese beef dish.
Meanwhile, I finished up this week with spagetti. An oldie but a goodie.
