Tomato Tuesday!

Breakfast: Blueberry Greek Yogurt and a Peach:

Lunch was a salad with corn, carrots, mushrooms, and romaine lettuce.

A piece of left over Vegan lasagna:

1/2 cup oatmeal with 100 calorie YoCrunch and today I was craving sweets so I cut up and added a honey graham z bar.

I also ate my last two chocolate pieces hidden in my desk:

Tonight's dinner is my tomato recipe for Hangry Pants' challenge. The start of dinner is a Baked Potato fan. So I take a raw potato and clean it and then I cut slits into it and then I brush it with some olive oil and sprinkle it with salt. I then bake it at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes.

In a pot I cook two large diced tomatoes, about a cup of morningstar crumbles, and about a cup of diced mushrooms (I microwave the mushrooms in some water for a minute first). I add Mrs. Dash Italian Seasoning and some salt, and I then cook until the topping is warm. (this is for 2 potatoes)

I then put the tomato topping in between the potato fans. This is such a tasty and filling dinner. I started making it a couple years ago, and when tomatoes are not in season I use canned diced tomatoes.

Hey!! I wonder how close we live? That would be funny if we live in the same neighborhood!! I always run in the park (I read a previous post where you said you went for a walk around the lake there). How cool!

Yum! I love your take on the secret ingredient - I've actually never seen anything like it! I love the fact that the potatoes are cut into slits and the goodies go in between!
