What's For Dinner? Beef with Carrot and Avocado Salad

Today was "get stuff done" day. I needed to go pick up the flea treatment for the cats at the vet, went grocery shopping, did the vacuuming, cleaned the bathroom, the kitchen and dining room, and sorted some of my yarn in the basket by my recliner in the living room. After all that, I took the rest of the day for me - and my Olympic knitting project.

One thing I've noticed as I've been reporting my meals here, is that my eyes are still definitely bigger than my stomach. I did eat all the steak on my plate, but maybe a third of the salad, and half of the rice. The  amounts recorded are what I ate, rather than what is pictured. I honestly think at this point, a three-item dinner is still too much for me. I don't really need a "starch", so I purposefully leave most of that for last, but I rarely finish both that and my vegetables when I do serve myself three items.

Tomorrow may be interesting, I'm supposed to have a "light dinner" since it's the night before surgery - even though I'm sure whatever I could eat would be classified as light, I think I'll probably switch up what I eat a bit and having my yogurt and cheese for dinner.
