It's a Wonderful Monday Even If...

It's a wonderful Monday, even if I am a LOSER! It's wonderful because our Steelers won! It was a nail biter and a really good game! The Cardinals were tough! And I'm a loser...I was very well behaved yesterday...Andy wanted Chili Cheese dip...nothing good in that...can of Chili with No Beans and a big hunk of Velvetta...served with Frito Scoops...I didn't eat a single Frito, I did have a couple of my favorite Baked Tostito Scoops with a little of his dip...we got wings for the game and I just ate a few...I can control myself...so my big result...down .5 pounds...again, not a lot but continuing to go in the right direction.

Our assignment for this week was to post a salad recipe. I'm going to share a salad that I love...it's from Hungry Girl...I love her...great hints!

Hungry Girl Special

3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
3 ounces cooked skinless, boneless lean chicken breast, chopped
1 Roma tomato, chopped
1/2 cup medium cucumber, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup canned beets, drained and chopped
2 tablespoons canned sweet corn kernals
2 tablespoons chopped red onions
2 tablespoons canned garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
2 tablespoons reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping

Place all ingredients in a bowl and toss well to mix...ENJOY!
