Dining Hall Thurday

Had a great dinner at the dining hall! They had chicken picatta on the menu, but I was able to easily take off the breading and had a little chicken breast all ready to eat! They also served ratatouille, which was very delicious, and a wild mushroom rice with vegetables - I piled the broccoli high! The rice was great, and I estimated about 1/4 a cup plus veggies.

Estimated "3.5 chicken breast, no skin, no breading." (It was smaller than it looks here since it's pictured in the front!). Ratatouille veggies were listed as 50 for a 4 oz serving on the dining hall menu. I estimated 75 calories. I put in a boxed seasoned rice for 1/4 cup mushroom rice plus the veggies.

Also had a side salad, which I only ate half of. Topped with a drizzle of honey mustard:

All together:


Had one bite of this banana pudding that the husband and MIL shared:

And snacked on 1/4 a cup of mini wheats!
