I’ve started sketching some ideas for a new sun series that I plan to paint. I like the way this sun’s face turned out. I always find myself doodling suns, moons and stars on things while I wait. Just out of curiosity, how many of you like suns and would want suns or other celestial type subjects in your home for artwork? My mom got me into them and I’ve always loved them. She had them around her house and I treasure the ones I have from her home.
I made fish and veggies for dinner tonight and just look how pretty they came out. If you are trying to lose weight, this is such a low calorie meal that fills up your belly. Came together super quick, too. Here’s what I got in there…
About a cup and a half of zuchinni, tomatoes, onions, peppers that I sauteed up in a teaspoon of olive oil with a fair sprinkling of Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy. Scrape all that on the plate. Using the same pan, I added a little non stick spray and then added 8 oz Tilapia (frozen, thawed) and a little more seasoning. Cook till it flakes with fork easily, just a few minutes turing once. That’s it. Quick, yummy and uses up your garden veggies. You could add any veggie you like. I thought about mushrooms after the fact. Oh well, next time.
The total calories for this entire plate, which really could serve 2, is only 288. I ate almost all of it because I thought I was really hungry, but I couldn’t eat it all.
I’ve lost 20 pounds since the first of May. I’ve been using My Fitness Pal which is a free program for your computer and/or your phone. It has made it so much easier. If you’ve got any weight to lose, I highly recommend it.
Artist, dreamer, gardener and nature nut. I love iced tea, music, scary ghost movies, growing all kinds of plants especially tomatoes and houseplants and enjoying my life in the country with my husband, son and our 3 cats and my ever faithful studio dog, Zoey.
I spend my summers weeding in the gardens and the fall and winter doing art shows and painting in my studio. Spring is a busy gardening time for me as well.
I blog about my life, gardens and paintings I'm working on. I also have my work for sale on my site.
Find me in my art studio attached to my greenhouse painting all the beauty that surrounds me.
