I’m just getting around to talking about last night’s dinner.  But… better late, than never, right?!?

We’re still playing watch the calories and it’s still working.  We’ve both dropped a few pounds.  Thank goodness it’s summer and fresh, local produce is so plentiful…  this is going to give us a good start for the winter coming up…

Last night’s fresh produce was a combination of zucchini, tomatoes, broccoli, leeks, and  mushrooms.  Just a slight drizzle of olive oil in the pan to get them started, and then a half-cup of red wine to finish them off.  The big-ticket item on the plate was probably the pork tenderloin – maybe 6 ounces… maybe 450 calories, give-or-take.  Maybe 200 calories for that cup of rice, and a hundred calories or so for the veggies.

It was good.

And then I decided we needed dessert…


So I made a baked egg custard.

For two of us, I used one egg and one egg yolk, 1 cup of non-fat milk, 1 tsp of sugar and a splash of vanilla. And one nectarine.

I sliced the nectarine and placed it in the ramekin, made the custard and poured it over the top and baked it in a water bath at 350° for about 25 minutes.

I cooled them in the water for about an hour and we ate them warm – all 152 calories!
