Happy Anniversary!

Tonight I am making egg plant Parm. and I also made strawberry-jalapeno jam.

Well, mom should be home tomorrow finally! She did her first round of chemo while she was in the hospital. We were just waiting on getting home health set up (for IV antibiotics she is still on for pneumonia) and then we should be good to go. Hopefully once she is home I will be able to get back on track.

Sunday: Eggs, Chicken Sausage, and Toast
Monday: Italian Style Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans

Then I will have to plan for next week!

We're doing well at not eating out. We had lunch out today, but ordered off the breakfast menu, which not only kept things cheap, but also kept me from overeating.

I've found that we're not only saving money by eating at home, but I'm also losing weight without really trying. I discovered a great website (skinnytaste.com), which has healthy recipes that are really easy to make.

Here's my plan for the week. I have a cold, so I'm hoping I'll be able to keep up with it:

Sunday - skinnytaste chicken pot pie soup
Monday - crockpot beef stew
Tuesday - minestrone soup from the freezer
Wednesday - veggie wraps with salad
Thursday - crockpot chicken (not sure what kind, maybe BBQ, maybe curry)
Friday - tortilla casserole
Saturday ???? - hoping we can get a babysitter so DH and I can eat out

Glad to hear your mom is on her way home soon. I wish her the best on her road to recovery.



This past week did not go as planned. I ended up with the cold everyone had so I was in no mood to cook. Hopefully this week will be better.

Tonight I made london broil with baked potatoes and brussel sprouts
Tomorrow we are going out for my mom's birthday but we have a giftcard
Monday is Grilled ham and cheese with homemade tomato soup
Tuesday is apple meatloaf with mashed sweet potatoes and broccoli
Wednesday is chicken stir fry with rice
Thursday is Homemade baked macaroni and cheese with salad
Friday is crock pot french dips with chips and fruit
Saturday is Chicken apple sausage with cheese tortilini and salad

Homemade French onion?! Sounds amazing. DH loves it..but hates high sodium in canned soups...and doesn't like the cheese/crouton that restaraunts often use.

We will be eating out every single night this week. Sunday night we had dinner with my in-laws in New Orleans. We drove home yesterday so we had to eat on the road.

Tonight we are going out for Mexican to celebrate my sister's birthday.

Wednesday - Sunday: We will be at Disney World! I am certainly not complaining about having to eat there! I will get back on track (in the kitchen AND at the gym!! lol) when we come home.

Hope everyone has a great week.
