Brandied chicken for dinner last night. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are quite healthy. The almost 1 whole cup of cream that went into the brandy sauce, well - that negates everything. But oh my - it's so good.
And today, D sprung it on me that he was hankering The Redd House. Had I known that - I would have suggested something much healthier for dinner last night. But I did OK at The Redd House - I filled a plate with veggies first: collards, green beans, pintos and small spoonfuls of candied sweet potatoes and corn bread dressing. THEN I got a small plate for the meats - 1 fried chicken drumstick. 1 piece of fried cat fish. 2 hushpuppies. 2 slivers of fried green tomatoes. 1 fried chicken liver. I skipped the grilled pork chop and the scalloped potatoes.
But the good part is that I didn't eat all of it! I ate about 1/2 of the drumstick - and pulled the skin off first. And I ate 1/2 of the catfish. OK - I ate the whole chicken liver and the hushpuppies. They were good this week.
And strawberry shortcake and some kind of pound cake with chocolate sauce. Small portions.
And I logged it all: Just under 1000 calories. I'm not hungry so I'll skip dinner. Calorie-wise, it's an OK day. My arteries thank me for not eating this way all that often.
