I am going to try to make this shrimp and orzo tonight. I have to see how much time I have. We have a doc appt. at 2:30 and then have to be out of the house by 5 again. The shrimp should come together fast. We shall see!

I love orzo!! I boil it in chicken or beef broth (low or no sodium) for added flavor.

Though I swore I was relaxing for the rest of the night last night...I couldn't resist trying one more recipe. I made low fat chocolate cupcakes (you use pureed pumpkin in place of butter/eggs/oil) and they were pretty good for a first attempt. I'm going to try them again soon with a few tweaks and see if I can improve them.

Today I made Mexican Black Bean Burgers with the black beans I did up in the crock yesterday. I just froze them for a quick later-on meal. I love stocking my freezer but now that I'm avoiding most of the processed and packaged foods, it's looking woefully empty.

I also made up bread crumbs with some of yesterday's homemade bread...I needed some for the black bean burgers as well as some really fine breadcrumbs for tomorrow night. I'm making something that calls for a package of Shake and Bake so I had to make up my own homemade version and I thought I'd tackle that today.

Tonight we are having:
homemade pizza (using naan bread for the crust)
salad

Well we spent the day at the hospital again with my Grandma. They admitted her to do some further testing. So my uncle treated to Bob Evans for dinner.

I have made a rice pilaf before but never orzo. This was also my first time making shrimp stock

Those Hungry Girl pumpkin brownie cupcakes are good. Sometimes, I add some pumpkin spice to them.

She's doing a lot better. Since she has been home she has been eating more and getting her strength. Being in the hospital really drained her so hopefully we can keep her out of there. She will do round 2 of the chemo in a couple of weeks so that will be a huge test for us both. I really do appreciate the thoughts and prayers. They help me stay strong and to keep pushing on when things seem bleak.

I will post my menu for next week soon. I have it done, but not here at the computer atm.

Thanks. They did some testing today and a good family friend went to be with her so my mom and I could get some rest.

We had dinner at home tonight. I had homemade pizza while mom had shrimp with a baked potato and salad.

I've made orzo a lot. It's amazing in cold salads with vinegarette. So yum! I'm allergic to shrimp so even though it looks amazing I can't eat it nor prepare it for my family lol. They eat shrimp out a lot.
