Chicken, Chicken, Chicken.......please

I am so tired of chicken recipes. I usually substitute them for turkey. I really don't like chicken and  "Eat Right For Your Blood Type" explains why blood type B should not eat chicken.

It is important to leave off chicken for Type Bs. Chicken contains a Blood Type B agglutinating lectin in its muscle tissue, which attack the bloodstream and potentially lead to strokes and immune disorders. Type Bs thrive on deep-ocean fish, but should avoid all shellfish. The shellfish contain lectins that are disruptive to the Type B system.

So far I have found two web sites that give me great Weight Watcher Recipes. Check out Laa Loosh and SkinnyTaste.

Check out Weight Watchers Online. I signed up for three months and have pretty much got it down. I need to KEEP TRACKING MY POINTS in order to keep losing weight.

So far I have lost 12 pounds and gone down one pant and top size making me very happy. I used to hate shopping but now shopping once every 6 weeks for new clothes is nice. I will continue to buy jeans /pants at Walmart and tops at Kohls until I have reached my goal. After that, its off to Macys to buy the good stuff that will last over time. You know, the little black sleeveless dress on sale? The one where you can accessorize into many ourfits. Adding things like a sweater over the dress, a jacket, so many options. Buying basic quality clothes and accessorizing is the way to look like you have lots of outfits. I am not ready yet, but can't wait.

Roast Beef with Mushroom Sauce

My cooking day was filled with cooking a roast at 300 degrees, then made salmon patties. Later I made a three bean salad.

Working all week and limited hours to cook leads me to cook once a week for weekly meals and our lunch menus. I also buy a couple premade meals from Trader Joe's. And yes, I do read the ingredients.

Since I had roast beef slices and quite a few cremini mushrooms I made a sauce to pour over rice.

Roast Beef with Mushroom Sauce

In large open pan add 1 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil. Heat just a bit and add 1/4 diced red onions (or what ever onion you have).

Sautee for a few minutes than add 5-6  washed and sliced cremini mushrooms. Saute for 5 minutes until they soften.

Add juice from roast. Heat until almost bubbly. Add 1/4 C half and half or what ever dairy you have.

Stir and cook on low heat for 3 minutes.

In a small bowl add 2 Tablespoons half and half and 1 Tablespoon corn starch or flour. Whisk to get all the lumps out. Add to mixture.
Once it thickens add slices of roast beef on top and cover.
Serve over rice.
