We had seafood extravaganza day at school today!
Oysters, clams, scallops, shrimp, fish, squid, lobster….the whole 9 yards. Unfortunately it was all either deep fried or drenched in a butter sauce! So….I decided to forgo the saturated fat and finish up my soup at home. I’m so glad I did because it was so good—this was the type of soup that actually gets better when it sits in the fridge because then the flavors have a chance to all mingle and today it was the best yet! I also had a serving (14 pieces) of Stacey’s Whole Wheat Bagel Chips (my new addiction) and a sliced apple sprinkled with cinnamon. Yum! It hit the spot! I have to run a couple errands this afternoon and study because tomorrow is my last day of class and my final practical that basically determines my grade….I’m really nervous…I’m just not that good at cutting meat and tomorrow I have to perfectly produce a boneless skinless chicken AND boneless fish fillets to end up getting a good grade in that class….eek! I am all set to make a really good dinner tonight though–one that I’m excited about so check back later!
This lunch was about 548 calories and totally hit the spot 🙂

Too bad it was sll drenched in butter, I love all that kind of seafood…yum! Nice work on having the willpower to forego it all!! By the way, my husband and I are close to booking our trip to Paris and the hotel you recommended is in our top 3 choices….so thanks again!

I know…too bad it was so buttery! One of my favorites is frutti del mare, or spaghetti with all that seafood in it! There are so many more creative ways to prepare fish and calamari than frying it!
