Operation: Solid Food Update

I made a game-time decision to switch my starting lineup, thanks to Southern Belle Jen. She kinda freaked me out when she said chicken salad had a high PB factor for her.

So, I opted for some meatballs that I'd made a few weeks ago and froze uncooked. I defrosted a few and then sauteed them until cooked. I added about 1/2 c. of spaghetti sauce and called it "Italian Chili."

I served myself just over a cup...just because that's how much it made. And I ate about 1/2 c. in about 30 min. After about 20 min, it started going down a lot easier, but I didn't want to risk getting stuck and having to head back to work, so I stopped.

I am not anywhere near satisfied or full, and I'd happily gnaw on my arm right now, but I think that has to do with the amount eaten and not an indication of whether or not I am at my sweet spot. I'll try the rest for dinner and report back.

Thanks for all the ideas!
