Sunday is our big cooking/dinner day. We always do our most elaborate and largest meal on Sunday with the idea it will provide us with leftovers for a good part of the rest of the week.

So this week, we're having Greek!

We're making gyros with tzatziki and hummus. About the only things we aren't making ourselves are the pitas. I'm excited to see how the gyro meat comes out. We've never tried the recipe before.

Homegrown asparagus, Rasberries, yogurt and Earl Gray.

So far I have lost 10 lbs in 2 wks just eating this for my evening meal and exercise. 15lbs to go.

We still have the big meal on Sunday, but we've been doing green salad with homemade vinaigrettes for lunch and trimming weight that way.

If you ever do a balsamic, canned chipotles and dark cherries are good combo to go in it.

Nice that you are losing weight, but I would be starving on that kind of diet and it isn't anything most people could keep up long term. LOL

A cucumber dill sauce based in yogurt and seasoned with lemon juice, olive oil and salt and pepper in our version. If you've ever had gyros, it's the white sauce they usually put on them.

I hope to change the evening meal soon to popcorn,basmadi rice and tortillas. This crash died and weight loss program is for a very specific purpose. After I achieve my goal and the project is finished...it will be challenge to keep the weight off.

Are you breading them first? My grandma used to bread her fried chops.

That is good to know. Too many people go on extreme diets and try to do it long term which is very unhealthy. You are being sensible at least.

I really need to get my eyes checked. At first when I saw the word "hummus" I saw "humans" instead. It must be because you said you were eating Greek. Anyway, it sounds good. The food that is, not eating humans.

That sauce sounds good. Do you have an herb garden? Fresh dill tastes and looks good.

Tabouleh called-he is wondering why he never got an invite. Greek salads and wraps are moreish; I don't care for the olives but they are still nice.

I make my own pizzas using pita bread as a base, Then I slather the base with pasta sauce, add shredded chicken breast, sliced jalapenos, diced white onion, sliced capsicum, sliced mushrooms, and a generous amount of mozzarella to top it off.

1 killo of baked potatoes, half killo jasmine rice, some steamed carrots and some low sodium sweet and sour sauce, wasn't too shabby.

THat sounds really good.

Tabouleh or cous cous is likely one of our next adventures, but we are limited on time today. We're still clearing out our basement. Instead, we're doing pan-fried golden potatoes as our side.

I used to grow some herbs on my patio before our son came along. I need to start that up again. So for now, no fresh herbs unless we spring for them.

My grandma was more farm wife with an English background. She'd use crushed soda crackers with some pepper and a few other things.
