Pasta Night (then Pizza Night)

All my spicy meals have caught up with my belly and it said "Something plain, please!" That meant pasta. As I've said before, I always cook too much pasta, but tonight I did not. I had 2 little angel hair pasta nests, with some marinara sauce and Trader Joe's Meatless Meatballs. It was yummy, and just what I needed. And Sparkpeople says my calories have been right in line today, even with my super yummy treat.

I highly recommend the Meatless Meatballs from Trader Joe's. The serving size is 6 pieces, and they have 140 calories and 4 grams of fiber, and 6 grams of fat. They are very tasty, too. They would probably make a good meatball sub.


Then the boy called. His girl is in town, leaving tomorrow and they were going for pizza at Upper Crust. So I went with them of course, and had a slice of bbq chicken pizza. Then we went for ice cream at Nona's, but I didn't have any. It is very easy for me to turn down ice cream, since I have the most delicous ice cream in the world once a week at my dad's. And because I had not eaten a large amount of pasta, the thin crust pizza (with not very much cheese) was a welcome addition to the day, instead of something I ate even though it made me sick. (I won't say what I used to do in the past if this occasion had arisen, but it involves unhealthy habits and not goodness.)

Now it's raining and I have to walk the dog.
