Today we were out running around helping my grandma get things for Sunday's dinner. So our dinner tonight is going to be simple, grilled ham and cheese sandwiches with tomato soup.

So, things are changing tonight. I got knocked out by a headache about 4:00pm so I did not have the energy to get anything done for dinner. We are ordering pizza/breadsticks... but I was careful with what I got so I will still be under my calorie goal.

Hoping to join in this thread, but I am not off to a good start. I am typing this from chick fil a on my ipad. We really only came to burn off some energy on the indoor playground since DH is out of town tonight.
Plan to make a menu and grocery list tonight. Gotta get motivated!

I had left over Masa and meat from my tamale making so I made a tamale pie. Tomorrow I am going to buy stuff for New Years. We usually have a dinner so the kids can participate. I think my DH has to work 3rd.

I am going to go check out super Walmart tomorrow to see what deals I can get on food.

So mom and I have decided that Monday we will clean out the freezer and cabinets (and organize them). That means my meal plan for the next month will have to change because I need to do the best I can to eat what we have. Next weeks will stay the same because we won't clean until after the trip to the grocery store (I go in the mornings).

I really want some room so I can buy a couple frozen meals (that are healthier). The other day I wanted something like that for lunch and had nothing . I also want room for some frozen veggies so I have those on hand for quick, healthy sides.

We've had a pretty awesome week so far.

I made brussel sprouts with some an awesome recipe from pinterest, brussel sprouts with pancetta. Oh.my.goodness. I'm gonna try them with bacon next time, so they'll be cheaper, but we bought some pancetta a little while ago for another recipe. I could have eaten the whole pan, and my sister (who is 14 and doesn't eat anything) loved them.

Last night I made chili and it was fantastic. Also found the recipe on pinterest. I'd never made chili before. We sent some home with my pregnant friend, and there should be enough for chili cheese burgers when my boyfriend comes home from his long shift today.

Tonight was going to be left over chili with baked potatoes, but he'd rather have chili cheese burgers, so I'm going to make some potato salad for him so they don't go to waste. I like this, lol.

Those brussel sprouts sound mmmmmm, so does chicken orzo soup- maybe I'd better go eat lunch. I did'nt make it home from the city until almost midnight w/ the 6 hours of driving yesterday, dd & I packed our lunch, then I had a half order of Old Chicago Italian nachos for dinner . Tonight we're having Trader Joe's orange chicken, brown rice & veggies, which was not on the menu, but neither was my trip to TJ's!
