The wife and daughter were out for dinner with my mother and my out-of-town niece, so I was on my own for dinner. We had already planned on having spaghetti so I went ahead with it for my self:
I come from a very non Italian family and I remember when I was a bout 12 years old, I was having dinner at a friends house and when they served the spaghetti, there was a separate dish for the pasta and the sauce !! To me, that was something that was out of the norm !
The sauce was from a jar
The meatballs were frozen in a bag
The Parmesan was pre-shredded.
That’s why it’s a “Quick” dinner !! (Don’t think bad of me)
This was the food count for the day:
|Lean cusine Egg Roll||320||1||62||8|
|3/4 cup rice||240||0||54||6|
|1 cup Yogurt||120||0||18||10|
When I was counting out the calories making dinner, I thought that there was WAY TOO MANY and I decided not to have any toasted garlic bread. But when I totaled it up for the day, I was quite surprised (pleasantly)to see that I was still under 2000 calories for the day !!
