Ugh April has been v tough. Baby came down w croup on Monday night, so I've been sleep deprived since then. and when I'm sleep deprived, I want sugar. I baked cranberry chocolate chip oatmeal cookies w the thinking that better a homemade treat than store bought. I'm coming down w something and only wanted the cottage cheesy bechamel + cauliflower parts of dinner. Not sure how to point it.

Things that Kansas City does better than NYC?!?

If you stay at Jefferson House B&B you can get Fervere bread in the morning.

For Beer:

Check out cinder block brewery:

The Green Room- nerdy bar, good beer selection, lackluster fries

Bier Station recommended previously.

Bridgers Bottle Shop- Opening soon

I suspect the food will be good, too.

Weight Watchers Foodies -- March Forth Edition! -- March 2014 [OLD]

I had a pleasant - 1.5 lb surprise after not tracking for a week (on vacation)! I ate ok, but not great. I think what made a really difference was going for an exercise walk every morning and a stroll into town every afternoon. And am now back on track with tracking (although not much time to work out).

Today for lunch: Smitten kitchen kale & quinoa salad
Dinner: Kimchi fried rice with fried egg and steamed asparagus

Kansas City recommendations please

I am very fond of Cafe Europa for both lunch or dinner, especially with a slice of lemon cake for dessert.

I am not wild about the atmosphere at Affaire, but I think the food there is far superior to that of Grunauer. The chef has a really deft hand with German food.

And Novel is very good. The smoked potatoes side is sublime.

Kansas City Food Itinerary

No tablecloths, and I bet if you were to eat at the bar it wouldn't feel intimidating. I bring my baby there, but I'm also kinda boorish.

Teague,

Thank you for the Mexican recs... I'm fond of Bonito Michoacan, but will def try El Camino Rey for my al pastor needs.

I prefer the atmosphere at the Reiger to the food. Novel is my favorite 'fine dining' in KC.

Soy or other ground beef substitute?

I eat meat but my husband doesnt and we are both very happy with Upton's. Their chorizo is a frequent taco filling in our house.

I think there is an option for nursing but augmenting with solids or formula. + 7 pts instead of +14. I'm going to stick with the +14 pts for the moment, but when my weight loss stalls, I'll bump it down to +7 pts.

I'm saving weekly points for champagne and oscar snacks tomorrow. Had a good dinner: thai beet soup, thai tofu apple salad and spicy eggplant pizza. It worked out to 15pts and was quite filling. Baby is starting solids so my points will soon be diminished. I'm very sad about that.

We've stopped here a few times and have enjoyed it very much. Far exceeded our expectations of Ames foodwise.

I already only eat real cheese- usually as an accent. (micro plane makes 3pts of parmaesan look like a mountain). Have just bought a bottle of whole milk to use on my tea/oatmeal in the morning. Low fat plain yogurt has same pts as full fat, so I imagine I might switch to full fat soon.

Questions about storing meat in single-serve portions?

Can you make a pot of stew? Skim the fat the next day, and freeze in individual portions?

Also, Greek yogurt is high in protein.

4 servings- 10 pts

I've used the ratios in it to make a kimchi version (no cheese, and used canola oil and sesame oil) and a paella version (no cheese/smoked paprika). Very tasty.

Freezer-friendly Meals for Busy/New Parents

I am a new mom and am grateful on a weekly basis for the frozen goulash and beef Bourguignon I have in my freezer. It is neatly sectioned into portion sizes, and it makes me happy at least once a week.
