No... that's not true. I regret nothing!
Well, maybe a little. My stomach hurts from all the delicious food I ate. Next time, do I what I say in the recipe I'm about to tell you about rather than what your tastebuds think you should do. You'll likely thank me later.
Tonight for dinner, I made these fabulous Sausage and Pepper Joes... every time I see the name as I write it, I read it as Sergeant Joe Pepper... I'm sure he is a nice guy but this post is not about him.

I should also only had 2 skins instead of 3. And see that broccoli? That's my conscience coming to light by making sure we had something green. :)
Now, this meal is not as unhealthy as you may first think. The buns are homemade and contain white-wheat flour, the joe mixture has extra lean ground beef, homemade sausage using the lean pork I ground myself, and no added fat (yay for nonstick!).... except the cheese.
Each potato skin has just 1 oz of shredded cheese, less than a slice of bacon, and was brushed with less than 1/4 Tbsp of butter. Of course, I ate 3.
Still not health food but a lot better than it could have been. :) And hey! We did have broccoli!
What's your favorite comfort food that you've lightened up some? Do you ever have eater's regret?
