Greg, my husband, had a lovely one day trip to St. Louis. I’ll talk about that tomorrow. He is such a great guy. My St. Patty’s day (yesterday) wasn’t that marvelous but he made it better.
Chicken (thighs or breasts or an entire chicken)/ground beef/turkey/shrimp/scallops/salmon/pork/a rotisserie chicken shredded from the deli comes in handy too – we don’t eat much meat but these are our choices
*Ice-you’d be surprised how many people don’t think to have this on hand for drinks (especially one at the end of the day-wink wink, nudge nudge, know what I mean, know what I mean)
*Frozen meal/pizza-I have a few Lean Cuisines, Healthy Choice, Amy’s Kitchen and a frozen pizza from the co-op, ravioli/pierogies at times (I do try to watch my calories believe it or not.)
*Frozen veggies that steam in the bag-love these for stir-frys and sides … I have a friend that eats frozen vegetables instead of potato chips, like corn… (shrugging shoulders)
Fudgesicles or Ice Cream – I try to have a low cal, fudgy snack in the freezer and I really like these and ice cream is not very often (unless Greg’s whining gets to me…and it does)
