I had about 4 bananas that were getting too ripe, so I threw them in the mix. I used 1/2 c. almond milk, a tsp. of vanilla, and just one egg with some Bisquick. Then I made two batches to make everyone happy. I made banana blueberry and banana chocolate chip pancakes. We had turkey sausage with them. I think it was the best I have ever made.
Now I'm craving pancakes! Banana blueberry! Yum! Tonight was a hamburger casserole that I saw on the community board.

I swear it's contagious. There were a few other ladies in the store nodding and saying the pancakes sounded good too. I thought of that little guy when I was making them tonight.

I'll post what our week looks like. It's not a typical week - I had outpatient surgery on my leg yesterday, so we had leftovers last night...

Sunday: Soy Ginger Salmon w/Broccoli & Rice
Monday: Chicken Apple Sausage Stir Fry w/Rice
Tuesday: leftovers - pizza for DH and me, pasta for the kids
Wednesday: Chicken Paprikash (that my grandma made and brought over last weekend - my FAVORITE meal!)
Thursday: Turkey Joes w/sliced raw veggies
Friday: Taco night!

Going back to post #1 to read up!
Welcome aboard!

YIPPEE Skippy its Friday!!!! (too bad it wasn't payday Friday, but oh well !!) We had snow overnight got about 3 - 4 inches.. not bad .. not really good but it's the northeast and that is what happens to us in the winter - someday I hope to move south and not worry about the icy snow weather...

Well change in plans for dinner tonight - we are cleaning out the fridge and freezer for leftover night .. so onto the menu : 1 sm cheese pizza, 1/2 of a veggie calzone, 1 serving sloppy joe, 1 serving chicken taco, 1 serving cream cheese spaghetti,1 serving of maccaroin with butter, 1 serving taco meat . I'll be serving the rest of the shoestring FF and the sweet potato FF with it.. and might do some cut up cold veggies cause the lettuce is gone

my freezer is stocked full of most dinner items for the next 2 weeks (I have to purchase 1 lb ground beef, 1 sm chicken pot pie and 1 ham steak) My pantry has enough rice - white and flavored, pasta - white and flavored, potato - instant and whole to make it for the next 14 days . I will need to purchase veggies - fresh, frozen and canned for some of the meals. Man it feels good to say that I am sure I can come in under my Grocery Budget for the next few weeks !!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

then...husband and I are going to try a juice fast. A friend recommended we watch Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead on netfllix....basically these people lose massive amounts of weight juicing fruits and vegetables for all meals, and that is all they consume for x amount of days. Not sure how long we will last, especially since I work night shift, can't imagine not "eating" all night.....

but we still have the kids, so I ideas of what to make them:
tacos x 2 nights
ravioli
grilled chicken
steak

I'm really not sure how this is going to pan out, we shall see.

So...my husband is on day 9 of his juice fast, has been consuming nothing but juiced fresh veggies and fruits, has lost 15 lbs so far and feels awesome. It is costing us $$$, but it's cheaper than a heart attack or a stroke, and being that he started at 300 lbs...well, you know. I am proud of him.

I on the other hand, lasted about 2.5 days, started eating very small amounts of nuts and seeds on day 3, and then on days 4 continued with fresh fruit/fresh veggies/seeds/nuts, and on Monday ate a homemade veggie burger over greens, and by Wednesday, someone brought food to work, and I ended up eating onion soup with bits of beef in it, 1 small square brownie, 1 crescent roll, and a ton of sun chips. Thursday I ate a salad, and today I pulled out my old Weight Watchers stuff from a few years ago and started writing what I'm going to eat. I had lost a total of 11 lbs, but once I started eating I gained 4 back, so in total I've lost 7 lbs in the past 9 days. I ultimately want to continue eating as much of a "whole food" diet as possible. I have no intentions of vegetarianism, but I have to say, I felt awesome eating fruits and vegetables all day long, and I have a new appreciation for them.

Tonight, we are having homemade beef barley soup in the crockpot. It is mostly vegetables.

Not sure what we are having beyond tonight.

I know this is always a hit at our house too. Throw some waffles, bananas, strawberry syrup and/or nutella into the mix and it puts a smile on everyones face at dinner!

Today I went to a work event and came back with a big container of leftover grilled rosemary chicken so we will definitely be eating that for a couple of days!

Tonight we're doing buffalo chicken pizzas, we have the chicken leftover from last night's buffalo chicken salads.

Thanks for sharing that, I hadn't thought of the strawberry syrup or nutella. We have them at home, just never thought to use them to top off waffles or pancakes. That will be nice to add to the table for something different!
