There was a lot of things I wanted to prepare in the kitchen this morning. Knowing myself however, I decided to do it all before breakfast. Once I eat breakfast and I’m still in the kitchen, I will keep snacking. And I did it! Despite making all this.
- apple chips
- white chicken chili
- homemade bread
- cookies (because they asked us to make some for the Fathers at church today) AND
- Wheat berries
…I didn’t eat any of it!! I couldn’t beleive my self-control. Once it was all finished and cleaned up, I sat down to a wonderful spinach and berry smoothie. And it was all finished by 9:30.
An hour after the smoothie, still a bit hungry, I used the rest of the strawberries I had set on the counter and didn’t put in my smoothie. I added a dolup (is that how you spell doll-up?) of greek yogurt. This tasted great.
For lunch, I couldn’t resist having some of my homemade bread, so I made a sandwich and a side salad. The sandwich had lettuce, tomato, and mustard.
I sketched out a menu for the week.
- Tonight: White chili
- Monday: Chinese chicken with wild rice
- Tuesday: Chicken parmesan
- Wednesday: Fajitas
- Thursday: Chicken pillows
- Friday: Avocado/ sprout sandwiches
- Saturday: Lasagna
I love my kids, I really do! But couldn’t they settle down for one day. They play so loudly! They tease, fight, cry, laugh, you know, be kids! I can only handle it for a few hours a day, NOT 12 HOURS! Perhaps if I kept them busier? I don’t know.
