Here are some pictures from the day:

After the graduation, my mom had a party for my brother at her house. I had convinced myself that I needed to bring my own food to the party for two reasons:
- I knew what my mom was having and I knew it would be very difficult to have a decent portion size of the stuff. (Roast beef sandwiches, potato salad, fudge and yummy snacks anyone?)
- I wanted to weigh in on Saturday and not be disappointed that I overate the night before. For some weird reason, if I overdo it on a Friday night, I'm prone to do the same thing on Saturday and Sunday. I'm strange, I know!
I left the party feeling good about myself and my choices. That feeling of knowing that I didn't "pig out" around some of my favorite foods was pretty incredible.
So, what's cooking in my kitchen this week? I'm still on my vegetable kick, so I made some roasted tomatoes with cheese. To make these, you'll need:
- Three tomatoes
- Mozzarella cheese (I used a little more than an ounce)
- Parmesan cheese (just a sprinkle)
- Italian seasoning
If you are following Weight Watchers, 1 tomato is 1 PointsPlus. I've been using these to add to my salads for lunch. Delicious!
Question of the Day:
Have you ever brought your own food to a party?
Until next time!
