I'm going to have to have more interesting titles. Nobody is going to read my blog without one!
Making chili for dinner, and decided that since I love chili cheese fries, I'm going to have it over a baked potato with a slice of cheese. But oh it is so hard to figure out how many servings my chili makes! I have the calorie count for the whole recipe. Argh I have no idea how big/small of a serving of chili to give myself tonight over my potato. I'm tempted to just dart in there and count the cups into a bowl or something. And everything is so high in calories! Even my potato, which I weighed, is 9.7 ounces and I had no idea how many calories, so I searched on the net and this place said every ounce was 26 calories. So my potato alone is almost 250 calories! I have the calories, I have more than 1000 for dinner, but still, incredible how high everything is!
For my entire batch of chili the calories is 4548. So after I measure it all out I'll probably end up only having like 2 teaspoons on my potato. I'm going to have to make some changes in that recipe.
Had a good walk last night.
My son is visiting from New Mexico for 2 weeks, and it's just like he never left. He's an air traffic controller in the air force, and boy am I proud of him. Just 2 years ago he was so different, funny how time changes things.
