Jenny Craig Diet Results, Week 7

It is Week #7 on the Jenny Craig plan folks. I got some great support from my hubby, Mr. B this week albeit in an off-hand way.

Mr. B and I like to go out for breakfast. I haven't been out for breakfast but once since I started this diet. We have a few spots we like; first and foremost Cafe Chew in Sandwich owned and operated by Frenchy's House Party charter members Bob and Tobin, Grumpy's in Dennis (we both like), The Red Cottage in Dennis (we both like) and Larry's PX in Chatham (Mr. B likes this one more than I do). Well, I was reading in the paper this week about a fellow that opened a restaurant in the Chatham Airport hanger, appropriately named "Hanger 2" and it described a refreshing of the old place. I had been into the old place for breakfast a couple of times and had decried the grunginess of the place and the lack of any kind of service or amenities. However they did make a killer homemade corned beef hash, which is my favorite breakfast dish. So when I read that there was a new owner/manager and a new menu I read on. It seems he has been a "chef" in some very good places most notably at Chatham Bars Inn which some of you may know was Frenchy's old haunt as Director of Catering and Wedding Maven. Anyway this guy has introduced some intriguing items for breakfast at the Hanger including a hash made of corned beef, sweet potatoes, new potatoes, beets, onions and finished with a horseradish creme fraiche. Yumm-oo as RR would say!!

After reading the story I told Mr. B that I wanted to go sometime and try this place out and here comes the left-handed "support". Mr. B said "we're paying all of this money for Jenny Craig so you can lose weight so we're not going Buddy". I gave him the sad face but I knew he was right. And after last week where I gained 0.8 pounds I felt he was quite right to remind me. Thanks honey!

So now to the results... I lost 4 pounds this week making a grand total of 29 pounds in 7 weeks. Another fascinating story on the highway to sveltness next week. Stay tuned!

    How about Jack's Outback? They have great corned beef hash!

  2. Haven't tried the hash there. Perhaps one day...
