Week 2 of the PFP Challenge is over! Woot! How did everyone do? I didn't get a chance to weigh myself this morning, having been woken by my frantic husband telling me the news that water was gushing in from the basement wall. Bah. Anyhow, so I'm going with yesterday's loss, which puts me down another 3.5 lbs for a total of 7.5 lbs so far, or about 26% of my goal. So far, so good. I haven't been as good about doing my exercises this week, but made it through another good week of eating earlier, drinking more water, and not ordering out, so I'm glad for that.
Here is another recipe from my friend, and "big sister" Pat:
8 ounces ground 90% lean beef or turkey
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cups(16-ounce can) cut green beans,rinsed and drained
1(10 3/4-ounce)can Healthy Request cream of mushroom soup
3/4 cup frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups water
1 1/3 cups (3 ounces)instant potato flakes
1/3 cup nonfat dry milk
1/3 cup(1 1/2 ounces) shredded Kraft reduce-fat cheddar cheese
spray an 8 by 8 backing dish with butter-flavored spray.In large skillet brown meat and onion.Add green beans,mushroom soup,corn,and pepper. Mix well. Pour into baking dish. Bake 20 minutes.Take out while preparing potato flakes. Cook water until boiling. Remove from heat. Stir in potato flakes and dry milk. Mix. Layer potato mixture on top of meat mixture. Lightly spray potatoes with butter-flavored cooking spray. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes

She told me that if everyone is good, she'll share a dessert next week. :) So BE GOOD! hee hee.
Pat (or anyone who knows), is there anything I can substitute for the dry milk? I'd just hate to buy a box for only this, when I know I wouldn't use it for anything else...
So, how is everyone doing this week? I was thinking the other day that if you leave a comment, you can click the link to subscribe to comments via email, and then you can see what everyone else posts as well. Or just check back. Or don't worry about it. LOL. Whatever works!
It sounded like everyone did pretty well last week I hope this was a repeat performance!
Enjoy the day!
