Thursdays are my weigh-in (WI) days at Weight Watchers. So good news today... I lost 2.2 pounds (a whole kilogram!). And good news about last nights dinner ... made in 30 minutes!!! And easy clean-up. It was the first "double duty" dinner, poached salmon and minted red potatoes. The salmon recipe was a great basic that I'm sure I will repeat. Tonight I'm doing the second half, salmon patties I think. Hopefully Roland, who doesn't do leftovers, will not freak out too much about eating salmon 2 nights in a row.

I had a request from Laura to name the dessert from V-D. I don't have the book right here, but it was chocolate cups that was kind of like chocolate pudding with liqeuer. Rachel had hazelnut liquer in the recipe, but I used raspberry instead which was what I had. I am making some substitutions to "lighten" up the recipes because she uses lots of olive oil and butter. I use some but not as much as she suggests. Last night's fit very well though with the WW program.

Big excitement for me today... I bought a serger (like a sewing machine, but not for those who don't know what it is). And since Kyle left today for his band trip (returning Monday night), I have virtually no responsibilities this weekend, you'll find me in the basement making things.

I'm off to play with my new toy.

the south beach book also has a great poached salmon recipie; the family liked it so much we have had it many times when not on the diet; another idea for double duty (while not subjecting your husband to the leftovers) is to make enough for cold salmon on a green salad for lunch the day after you have it for dinner - from south beach
