Loooove my Magic Bullet! I have my old standby big Cuisinart mixer that I still use for hummus, veggies burgers, pesto, dough...but between smoothies, applesauce, soups, baby food, etc. the MB gets used at least daily! I actually own two .

For beans, how about chili? That's always my favorite. Or enchiladas.

My knockout oatmeal recipe for milk production:

Cook steel-cut or traditional rolled oats in water according to package directions. Add fresh or frozen fruit and sweeten with blackstrap molasses. Top with toasted slivered almonds.

(I always did mine in the microwave and even steel-cut oats don't take long!)

Savory Pancakes

I originally got this recipe from an old Family Fun magazine that I was looking through at the dentist's office. I changed it a bit by using whole wheat flour instead of white and I use soymilk instead of milk. You may need to double or triple the recipe. This recipe is barely enough for three of us.

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 egg
1/4 cup milk or soymilk
1 cup grated carrots
1 cup grated zucchini
2 green onions, sliced

Stir together dry ingredients. Mix together egg and milk/soymilk, then add carrots, zucchini, and onions. Combine wet ingredients with dry. Fry up in skillet, using a little oil. Serve with salsa, sour cream, cottage cheese, etc.

Aha! I've never wanted sweets, but this time I'm craving fruit! And with all 3 boys I enjoyed hearty sandwiches. I hope it's pink booties for me (or purple, I'm not a pink fan actually ) and blue for you!!!

I have been eating a mix of good and bad...McDonald's (just once!) and this morning 8 sausage links and 2 toaster strudels... but I also eat tons of pomegranates and clementines and grapefruits and avocado's, and try to cook healthy meals. I have this serious issue with having to eat out for lunch though...

thanks for the suggestions on the beans -- still contemplating options as I went and made lentil stew for dinner last night. tonight, I'll finally get to the baked mac and cheese and prolly make a bean and veggie salad to go with it.

Yum! Can someone come to my house and cook? I work(3 days a week) and DH is a SAHD. He does a good job cooking most of the time but I'm going to have to come up with a grocery list after reading this thread!

We recently bought that Deceptively Delicious cookbook. You know, with recipes that work vegetable purees into kid friendly food. He's been trying a lot of those lately. Not bad.

I have been craving cherry pie so last night at the store I bought a whole pie, a can of cherry pie filling, and 2 cans of tart pie cherries!

breakfast- scrambled eggs
lunch- annies mac and cheese
dinner- waiting on the butternut squash soup (home made) man my house smells wonderful right now! I can't wait till its done, I keep going in to the kitchen to take big whiffs

a few crackers as snacks and an apple with peanut butter. I don't think I am eating enough but I have zero appetite right now, so I'm forcing myself to eat in between the waves of nausea
post #57 of 147
Man, I keep reading about this nausea....Just not feeling it yet! Makes me nervous, tho!

I stopped at the store tonight and picked up some yummy snacks to have on hand. You guys are great inspirations! Got some yummy nuts, WW bagels, and real ginger cookies (for when that m/s does show up!!)

LOVE this thread!
