What's For Dinner? Meatballs in Red Wine Gravy

I'll admit it - I'm in love with my FoodSaver. We used it quite a bit pre-op for portioning out bulk meat purchases, and the occasional lasagna type left athat wouldn't be eaten within a couple days. But it's truly been a lifesaver post-op. I have 3 portions of pork tenderloin frozen in the foodsaver bags - they come two to a package, and just half of one is enough for my little portion and a good one for the Man. I also had two dinners worth of tonight's meal - Meatballs in Red Wine Gravy left over from the first time I made it. I love that I could just take the bag out of the freezer and plop it into a pot of boiling water and let the meatballs and sauce heat without drying out at all!

I got my pre-op call from the hospital today - luckily they don't want to see me for any pre-op testing, and it seems so far that I'll get to avoid having to self administer an enema before hand (please oh please). I'll get a call on Friday for my "report in" time - though they're estimating my procedure to start at 12:40pm.

Not much else in news today - did another treadmill working, and getting so tantilizing close to dropping below the 200lb mark - I'll definitely report when I do.
