Getting back into a more normal schedule for us as the kids head back to school. I also want to cut back our calories by alot to try and lose some of this holiday weight. So this is the plan for the week:
Sunday: leftovers. whole wheat pasta, turkey meatballs and homemade sauce. (Haven’t been to the store yet so this will have to do.)
Monday: chicken soup. I’ll share the recipe on Wednesday.
Tuesday: salmon, goat cheese and hummus salad
Wednesday: chicken tostadas (using leftover chicken from Monday)
Thursday: BBQ pork sandwiches with WW apple and carrot slaw
Friday: Homemade pizza; pepperoni and ??
Saturday: eat out or leftover pizza
Planning to do a major clean out of the kitchen this week. Lots of junk food to get rid of and I need to go back to the things that work for me. Also lots of healthy snacks for the kids. I think I’ll bake something to have when they get home from school, some kind of apple cake. Looking forward to the first week of the new year.

It’s as simple as that. I love everything about cuisine. I love food. I love eating. I love cooking. I love pictures of food. I can sit and read cookbooks for hours. I even like going to the grocery store. Yes, my mom is a fabulous cook. Yes, my grandmothers spent all day in the kitchen and made everything from scratch. Yes, I had an easy bake oven as a kid. I just love food.
So I’m thinking about what I love and what I want to write about and spend time with and the natural answer is food. So here I am starting a blog that will mix what I know with what I love and my pictures.
