I feel like we are eating quite well, but I am only a week into the challenge. Lunch today was bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches. The bacon was turkey bacon. I cook an entire package at a time and freeze it. I can easily grab a few slices for sandwiches. The homemade bread toasted nicely. BLTs are a summer treat so we enjoy them while we can.
Supper was a feast. While digging in the freezer for meat for the fajitas, I found a package of steaks. Those went on the grill tonight. We had baked potatoes and salads to round out the meal. Dessert was homemade vanilla ice cream.
The ice cream was a breeze to make with only three ingredients. I have a 1 1/2 quart GE ice cream maker. The canister went into the freezer yesterday. After lunch I mixed 3 cups half and half, one cup sugar, and 2 1/2 teaspoons homemade vanilla. Once it finished churning I put it in the freezer to finish hardening. The flavor was perfect. I will be dividing the remainder of the half and half (which put me slightly over budget) into 3 cup portions. No more store bought ice cream for us!
