Not only did I have a loss today, but it was a 1.8 lb loss! So, not only did I lose the one pound I gained last week, but an additional 0.8! I'm back on the right track and my eating has been much better.

smoked salmon chowder

I made smoked salmon chowder for lunch. Jeremy hates salmon, so I made a smaller batch. It makes 5 cups and the whole pot is 17 points.

3 cups water
1 extra large chicken boullion cube (or 2 regular ones)
1 1/2 lbs yukon gold potatoes, cubed
1 medium carrot, sliced
1/4 cup frozen corn
1/2 tsp black pepper
4 oz. smoked salmon
1 T corn starch
1/2 c half and half
1 T dried minced onion

Bring water, boullion, onions and pepper to boil. Add potatoes, carrots, corn, and smoked salmon torn into small pieces. Boil until potatoes and carrots are tender. Mix corn starch with a small amount of water and add to pot. Remove from heat and add half and half.
