This will be a short blog because well, I have no heathy menu to share this week.
Monday: We’re away.
Tuesday: I’ll pull a couple of pasta casseroles out of the freezer – Baked Ziti and a Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake – two of Nick’s favorites.
Wednesday: Shepherd’s Pie Now I COULD make a version of this that would fit my eating plan, but Nick wouldn’t like it. And let’s face it, for the time that I get to have him with me, it’s really all about HIM, my heart-of-hearts, my baby boy, my favorite child that I ever gave birth to. . . Oops, I digress. ❤️
Thursday: dinner at a friend’s home
Friday, Saturday & Sunday: We’re away again.
Nick has also made requests for Monkey Bread, banana bread and Angel Food Cake. And I’m making that Jell-O cheesecake (ugh -cough, cough) with canned cherries that both he and my hubby love.
I’m thinking of just wiring my jaw shut for the week with all this unhealthy food luring me at every turn. Yikes! 😬
No, not really of course. The trick is to make a plan when you have food land mines ahead of you. My plan is to make that awesome kale salad I had last week, and just eat that for dinners while my guys are eating the deliciously bad food.
Yes, that salad was THAT good. It’s delicious, hearty and keeps well even after being dressed.
