We spent the day in the ER with my grandma. She is okay, she was dehydrated. So we stopped for takeout on the way home.

Thanks. I don't really like eating low carb, but I do love the rate of weight loss so we do intermittent low carb and eat regularly 3 days a week to keep our sanity. Last fall I was able to lose 30 pounds pretty effortlessly eating this way and since I packed it back on at Christmas, I thought I'd better give myself a jump start once again!

I'll be trolling your posts for ideas when I get tired of eating the same things all the time!

Well, we couldn't sustain the low carb eating!

We're bagging it, starting today. Menu doesn't change though as this was our last low carb day for the week (supposed to be) so we are still having chicken breasts and salad...I'm just making a side dish of fettucine alfredo to go with it.

Tomorrow is still homemade hamburger helper (beef stroganoff) and Saturday is still bean and rice burritos.

I got groceries today and picked up some ground pork so I can make homemade wontons (and consequently wonton soup) and decided to make homemade italian meatballs and mini tortieres with the rest of the package of pork.

I think I'll do all that up tomorrow and then freeze them for future meals.

Hi Everyone!

I told you a while back that my daughter has a mass in her lymph node on the left side. It's 19x24mm(almost 1 inch). We got an CAT scan last week and the original surgeon we saw didn't want to do the surgery and is sending us to the local Children's hospital. We are seeing my youngest DD's surgeon that removed her tonsils. I know this is the best place for her anyway. Our appt. wasn't until May but I managed to get her in this next week. In the meantime, we are trying to keep things as normal as possible. Our appointment is next week Thurs. so I will update next week.

This is what I have been making the last few days:
Tonight taco bowl salads
meatball subs last night and bananas Fosterhttp://tinkmomfoodie-foodobsession.blogspot.com/2013/04/bananas-foster-night.html
chiorizo quiche's
chicken pie popovers
Poutine fries

Last night we had a doctors appointment (we're at the twice a week point bc I'm a high risk pregnancy) so we had chipotle after the appointment and then went to see G.I. Joe.

Tonight we had roasted lemon pepper chicken, Spanish style garbanzo beans with chorizo and potatoes in a saffron sauce with white rice. My mom made this tonight, I didn't have to cook it, so it tasted AMAZING! LOL It's funny how things taste so great when you don't have to cook them yourself.
