Dinner

Donuts, Olives, Hot Dogs, and Some Healthy Stuff

This week there are people in my house who are sick.  I’m working hard at not catching it, so far so good, knock on wood. I’ve been eating a lot of garlic, and drinking all kinds of antioxidant concoctions.  It’s working, I know it.   Tonight I wasn’t too hungry at dinnertime, after a busy…

Meal Planning – Kid Food!

035

Today is my Brookie’s 5th birthday!  Most people would say 5 years flew by, but I think it felt like 5 years.  Brooke is a beautiful fairy sprite, and I am completely head over heels in love with her.  She came into this world and completely turned mine upside down.  Being her mom has taught…

Meal planning – Food Bliss Week

I’m a little late in the game this week due to a very busy Thursday and Friday.  But, the plan goes on!  I’m really looking forward to the food I’m planning to make this coming week.  I’m still going strong on my dairy-free diet, and I really don’t miss it at all.  It’s funny how…

Meal Planning – Back to Reality

I’m back in the saddle!  We’re off to Trader Joe’s for groceries today, because the toy-buying frenzy that is Stop and Shop has got to stop.  I got into the habit of letting my kids pick out a small toy every time we go to the store, and it’s getting really old.  They’re starting to…

Meal Planning – OK I Did It.

So I did it, we will eat again!  Basically I changed it up a tiny bit.  One of the major problems was that the sophisticated recipes I was making were making my kids, especially Brooke, gag.  I would be exhausted from the arduous process of following a recipe after a long day of work, with…

Meal Planning – OK, Got It.

Here’s the calendar for the rest of this week.  I’ll have to go shopping tomorrow night after work, which really stinks (I’ll be tired and grouchy), and means we’ll have a really late dinner.  I have to say I did start feeling a little burned out on all this organization and predictability, I’m glad I…

Meal Planning – Off the Wagon

Well, it was bound to happen eventually, but it’s ok.  It’s been a busy time with Easter, plus a sudden massive increase in my workload, which is wonderful, so I can’t complain.  I will get back on track though, hopefully tonight, so I’ll post as soon as I have the calendar updated.  Until then, have…

Meal Planning – What a week.

It’s been a very full and busy week, one with two nights of takeout (gasp!).  After all the cooking we’ve been doing for the past month or so, I think we’ve earned it.  This week is one of my busiest of the year.  I’m working on a big bi-annual alumnae newsletter for a summer camp…

I Almost Forgot to Mention…

… I made Allie’s Bulgogi Pizza last week, it was AMAZING!  Please try this sometime.  We added a splash of lemon juice and with some fresh avocado on top, and it was probably the best tasting pizza I’ve ever had.  I didn’t use homemade dough, I bought dough at the store, but it was still…
