I made nachos for my man this evening. This involves some sort of salsa type thing (usually corn and black bean with garlic, jalapeno peppers, cilantro and onion) steak and Tostitos and lots and lots of cheese. He likes whole chips, so I usually end up with leftovers. Like last week, I ate the rest of the bag. Bad Sarah, but it happens. Hopefully these broken castoffs I can ignore until they go stale. I normally have a salad instead of the nachos. I use the corn and black bean mix, add cherry tomatoes, salsa (Newman's Own Medium Garden Style is my new favorite) and ounce of steak and an ounce of reduce fat cheddar and lots of lettuce. Still tasty and much better for me. Occasionally I fish out a few broken chips and crumble them over my salad like croutons, one does like a bit of crunch.
A big part of my success I think is being firm about my food choices when it comes to M. I often modify recipes for me and my calorie needs. For a while it was hard on me, he was like, aren't you going to have any? No thanks, I can make something similar yet not so heavy. Salad doesn't appeal to him and I am okay with that. Marriage is about keeping us both happy. Food is such a personal thing, I feel lucky that I can share it with M and not have it be a big deal.
