I hope you'll stop by and say hello, and pick up all kinds of fabulous tips from the other meal planning writers too.

I'm over there today with a tutorial on making a Stick Raft so please come by and say hello.
Mango Coleslaw Ingredients:
While your burgers are grilling, put the purple and green cabbage and mango in a large bowl and set aside.
In a small bowl gently whisk the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, sugar and cracked pepper.
Pour the dressing over the cabbage and mango, toss in the cilantro, and gently combine with a large fork.
Top your burger bun with provolone cheese, burger pattie and coleslaw.

This was another rough week. I was definitely eating better than the previous week (except the day of ice cream), but the lack of exercise has definitely set me back a little. Serving myself up portions in smaller bowls and stopping eating once I'm full has finally become a part of my everyday meal routine, whereas before I was eating until there was nothing left on my plate and then quite often left feeling bloated.
Here are this weeks weigh-in and measurement results:

So I lost another .6lbs and 1/2 an inch this week.
This weeks recipe:
Grilled Pear Salad
Using an apple corer, core the pear. Place the pear slices on the George Foreman Grill on medium heat for a couple of minutes.
Make the dressing. Gently whisk all ingredients in a bowl until well combined.
Entertaining tip: I made this dish as a side salad because we had friends over for a barbecue. I served each of the ingredients in individual bowls so that everybody could dish up their own salad according to their likes or dislikes. That way if somebody didn't like blue cheese, or couldn't eat nuts, they didn't have to. This also made it easier to serve the kids as they love the pear, but at least with my kids, they didn't want the rest of the salad ingredients.

I am such a huge fan of homemade salsa that I find it very hard to eat store bought anymore. I also love heirloom tomatoes. I don't know if it's just the beautiful colors or the taste, or both, but I buy them as often as I can, from cherry tomato size to regular size.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and gently combine. Serve with Tostitos multi-grain scoops.
