Oh I swear I dont even know what I would do without you ladies! So the shopping trip was a success, i think! I did get many of the things all three of you mentioned...wheat pastas, fresh veggies, got some lowfat Yoplait yougurt, frozen strawberries (for a frozen milkshakey treat)...chicken, hamburger (the leanest I could find, 93/7) ground turkey, fruit bars for DS (they didnt have the BEST ingredients but compared to a pop tart, it was gold) Granola bars. I did not buy ANY mac n cheese, hamburger helper, sodas, chips, crackers (did you know that there was high fructose corn syrup in a wheat thin? WTF?)..
So I think we did good... last night we ate the hot dogs, chili, and tater tots that were still around so they are now gone along (hopefully) with the temptation to eat them...
Today I am going to make a beef stew...
So...whoes got a lasagne recipe? I have mozzerela cheese, cottage cheese (DH wont to riccota) noodles, meat, tomatoes, and seasoning onions, peppers, garlic... do I have evertyhing I need?
I cheat with my lasagna.. I brown my meat cook my noodles then layer everything but I just buy spaghetti sauce instead of making homemade sauce.. For me its generally cheaper.
Once you have not had any HFCS in your diet for a while you wont crave it.. Its seriously like an addiction. Sugar too..
What is HFCS Khourt? NEVERMIND!! I FINGERED IT! HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP!
Yeah, that craps in EVERYTHING! EVERYTHING! I dont understand what a cracker would have to do with, much less a granola bar...do they just use it as glue to hold food together? LOL...
And, whats the difference between spagetti sauce and lasagne sauce? I thought they were esentially the same thing... I am making my own sauce, but it wont be any different than what I make for spagetti...

Reason: I fingered it out!
IDK.. I'm gonna get a healthy dinner and a few drinks.. or a drink and a small dessert.. yummo! I had soup for lunch today and I'm kinda hungry.. I brough a banana but it looks way too ripe for my liking. good thing it's almost 5 what's for dinner, everyone??
I made sure to update my points last night. I need to mark mine for today though. Im still drinking my water but only have a few more cups left and the night is still young (at least for me). Im about to go do Family Home Evening with the kiddos.
Dinner tonight was speherds pie. It was good and Im sure Ill be going in the kitchen soon and getting more. Lately Ive not been eating much during the day but during the evening Im eating like crazy but I guess it makes sense. Aybra has been doing a lot of cluster feeding during the evening.
I got a workout today! Our neighbours little girl was here. She is 7 and has CP and is in a wheelchair. Kaia and Alo love play with her. Its nice for Alo to be able to play with others like him even though she is older. He gets a little shy sometimes but then again she is older than him Anyway.. my workout.. She is 7 and doesnt walk... She is probably 1/3 my weight or maybe even 1/2 my weight.. Who knows but I have so much trouble lifting her.. Im weak as it is but goodness!!! Oh yeah I have a hard time lifting Alo too.. Its not that he is heavy but he is dead weight. He doesnt help hold himself at all and that would make it much easier. He is around 24# but he feels like hes 50# or so.
I need to make a grocery list and menu list for this coming week.. maybe even month if I feel that brave but Im not sure where to start this week. Nothing sounds good to me. Any suggestions? Im going to be putting some fish on there and roast w/gravy but not sure what else.
I made pork chops with those potato wedges Heather J posted. SO GOOD! I had a headache all day. DH blew out his back, so he was home but helpless, and Brayden is teething like a mad man! Anyways, wanted to say great job!
Oh, and Nidia
It's your Birthday, you can eat if you want to...eat if you want to! lol...I crack myself up!
