Yup-same here. Dh was down for the count all weekend with the rotavirusy type thing that the kids had. So far, I have been spared. I wasn't prepared with groceries though & that's never a good thing. Went to Whole Foods tonight & got our normal stuff from there-eggs, egg whites, berries, vegs, & the lunch stuff for the kids. Tomorrow I need to run to Shoprite for some more chicken.
Challenges I am having...salads are getting boring. Might have to do more steamed veggies & spices instead. And I have my Book Club this week (Thurs) which is really just a monthly dinner/wine night. We DO read the book, but also do full dinner at a different house each month (so no control over the menu), desserts & lots of wine. I can't count the # of times I went planning on only a glass with dinner & skipping the crazy desserts all the skinny gals bring & opting for the fresh fruit I always bring. Any unique tips to prevent it for being a major set back!!!????!!!!!
Talk to me about bone stocks? Always just used broth so don't know the difference.
HollyBearsMom-What kind of stock did you use in your Carrot Ginger Soup?
Altair-Can we get that Spinach/Ricotta/Chicken bake recipe????
Is there anyone reading this in the Montclair, NJ area who would be my walking buddy????
