Forgot to add, DH will still be having the same dinner, chicken, baked potato, salad, vegies and fruit. It just won't be my fixins.

Catlover, DH's diet is on one side of one small piece of paper. I guess we can't be trusted to do it right by ourselves However he also has little packs of vitamins to take throughout the day. This is for medical conditions and Weight Loss. So we will be with it until who knows.

Yikes Sandra! With that kind of heat I wouldn't be motivated to cook either or do much of anything else!

Well if you find out you "can do it yourself" from your doctor and want some low fat or no fat recipes just let me know! It is hard at first, but gets easier as time goes on. The one part that always stays hard though is trying to eat at any restaurant; we've just about given that up! And the relatives that have cook outs don't understand it either, so we always just take him a "picnic meal" and snacks and then we can still enjoy ourselves!

Good Luck!

What kind of recipes would you like? It isn't hard after you know how much fat you can have and get used to looking at the serving size and how much is really in all those things you eat every day. I know when we first started we were surprised at how much fat is in things that you would never even think about! And then it all depends on why you are on the low fat or fat free(as close as you can get) diet. My hubby has a problem with tricylerides so there are bad fats and good fats.

The fun part is gettig your protein in other ways and discovering how you can bake at home and just learn some substuituions for things you can't have. I'd be glad to give you some tips or recipes!

Dh is on the way home!!!

YIPPEE, his plane is 20 mins early (so far in the air). He gave his boss the guilt trip that he was out of town during our anniversary. Hehehe now we get to go out to dinner on him!
I was pushing for Bob Chinns, but dd2 wouldn't like anything there.
We settled for Jamesons steak house. Never been there but have heard rave reviews. I'll be sure to order something expensive
