Is the cauliflower mac & cheese just cauliflower au gratin? Steamed cauliflower, smothered in béchamel sauce & backed in the oven until golden?

It was prepared (mostly) there was a bag of cooked cauliflower in a broth that you had to drain and a package of a cheese sauce that you put on top. It could go in oven or microwave just to heat it. Yours sounds better though. 😋

Another work day so more packed meals!
Green smoothie- spinach, kale, unsweetened almond milk, frozen strawberries, chocolate Protein Powder

Triscuit thins with some harvest chicken salad- chicken, thin sliced red onion, celery, reduced sugar craisins, diced apple, pecans and almonds in a dressing of light mayo, apple cider vinegar, and maple Syrup with some spices

an egg white omelette with a spinach gruyere chicken sausage, onions and sun dried tomatoes

my trusty thermos with vegetable Soup

and then another (there’s already one in the coffee mug with espresso) Protein Shake for coffee and my beef bouillon packet.

Also, I always pack a couple Protein Bars, a shelf stable soup, and other Snacks in case I don’t eat (not in the mood for) what I packed and adjust my calories accordingly.

@ms.sss how’s this for dessert? I had a friend whose sister passed away and she was having family stay at her house. She asked if I could make my famous chocolate cake for them. It’s 3 layers and with the best frosting ever. Since it was going outside of my house, didn’t have to be worried about eating any. I normally use chocolate curls for decoration but I couldn’t find any (not sure they ship them to TX outside of the winter season) so I grated up a Ghirardelli chocolate bar. The nubs that were left I threw away - that was hard but went straight in the trash.

Dammmnnnnnnnn....

Had I known how many calories were in that take-out Salad Dressing packet beforehand, I wouldn't have put it on my salad! I mean, WTF?!?!? 174 calories?!?!?

Anyhoo, todays first meal of the day: takeout garden salad with aforementioned extreme-calorie salad dressing, some leftover teriyaki-glazed grilled salmon(+ an espresso martini beforehand, not shown): 625 calories.

Am eating it now, and will likely eat about 1/2 of it now and the rest later.

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
