Tuna Time? I don't know, I've got nothing.

I don't know what to put for a title!

I made a tuna casserole for today. When we were growing up my mom made a really good tuna casserole. It was kraft dinner (so healthy!) with cream of mushroom soup, tuna, and peas. I decided to try to make my own tuna casserole. Here's how I did it.

1/2 c brown rice (2), 1c campbell's gardennay mushroom soup (2), tuna (2), peas (0), broccoli (0), mushrooms (0). I also added garlic and black pepper for a little kick. The whole thing is 6 points and the plan was to take it for my dinner tonight for my evening shift. The problem? It's HUGE. It MAY be too much food. But I'll take it anyway and eat what I can.

Last night was dinner at Mongolian grill (so easy to stay on track there!) - I avoided any noodles in my dinners but did have a little bun. I took 4 squares for dessert, had 2 bites of all of them, then decided on my 2 favourites and finished those ones. I had diet coke to drink and all in all my points were very reasonable I'd say. I don't have my tracker in front of me to recall exactly how many I figure I ate.

Breakfast today was plain instant oatmeal(2), 4 walnuts and 5 almonds (2), flax seed (0), brown sugar splenda and some pumpkin spice (0), and pomegranate green tea (0). Lunch is undecided yet and dinner is TUNA CASSEROLE of course!

Today's plan of attack WAS squats, planks, then treadmill. The problem? The fire alarm went off (AGAIN! some freaking prankster in this building is starting to enjoy pulling the fire alarm). I always assume it's a false alarm now (I know, STUPID of me) and go to my balcony. What did I find out there AGAIN today? feces. Yep, you read that correct (now try not to puke because that's how I'm feeling). It appears to be from a small animal (cat or dog)... This is not the first time in the last couple of months I've found it. In fact, I found FOUR out there today. THEN I hear a dog barking on the balcony above me. I wasn't sure if I should confront the people right then and there (as much as I want to), but decided not to. I'll just report it to the building managers on Monday morning. So gross.

The fire alarm is now off so I guess I'll get to routine because I have to leave in a little over 2 hours for work! Time is ticking now!!!

Tomorrow's plan is grocery shopping, treadmill, then out to lunch in Ajax with Alex and hitting Costco and Walmart AND stopping at his office to get me a flatscreen 21" computer monitor that he has lying around (so exciting!). Then tomorrow evening I'm going to make some hummus, roasted red pepper dip, ww guacamole, and a red bean dip thing - then I'll be set for some variety through the week! I think I'll also make some pumpkin squares and some of Tara's muffins!

Happy weekend!

Your food sounds great...the tuna casserole and your plans for tomorrow evening. Have you made all those dips before? Let me know what your favourite is!
I will have to try the Mongolian grill sometime. There was one in London when I went to school and I think I went once but haven't been since. I would have a hard time staying away from the noodles though!
I hope your day at work went OK and you're not too wiped to make it through next week! You're a busy girl!
