Today I had to be extra careful calorie-wise because John was making me a Negroni Sbagliato for our before-sies. That is a combination of 1.5 oz. Campari, 1.5 oz. sweet vermouth, 3 oz. sparkling wine, 2 olives, and orange peel. I discovered that Campari is loaded with calories so all day long I was cutting a little off breakfast, lunch, and snacking to make room for my drink. I am only 2.5 lbs. away from my goal and I do not want to blow it now!
So after our lovely cocktail and pretzel time we tucked into John’s delicious pan-seared salmon with a tarragon sauce that I made. The tarragon sauce is a combo of light mayo, fat free Greek yogurt, tarragon, parsley, lemon juice, salt, garlic powder, and a dash of water to thin it out. It tastes good with the salmon but also on tonight’s broccoli and riced cauliflower.
What were we celebrating? Maybe just getting to another Monday with our whole family still healthy! That is worth a celebration.
