I am only planning for 4 days this week, because the kids will be at their dad’s this coming weekend. Plus, I will find out what my raise is going to be on Friday, and I am hoping I will have cause to celebrate!
Monday: Chickpea Cutlets, Dijon mustard sauce, buttered potatoes, steamed broccoli
Wednesday: Chili Pasta, pineapple, butternut squash soup
Thursday: Beanie Weenies (from McDougall’s Quick and Easy Cookbook), steamed broccoli/carrots/snap peas, strawberries
This past week, I actually went out to eat one night while the kids were at their dad’s, and found that I don’t enjoy it as much as I used to. I still like eating out with friends, but I used to love eating out by myself, reading, enjoying some peace in the midst of people (not having to say “Be nice to your brother!”, “Don’t hit your sister!”, “Sit down on that chair!”) Now, I find it just takes a lot of time, is expensive, and isn’t as good as many of the foods I make at home. It is good to find that I really have changed my habits.
