Super Bowl Sunday

We were invited to a Super Bowl Party so my menu was moved to tonight. It is a good thing that we ate something before going because besides nacho and cheese everything else was desserts. Not good for this diabetic and her diabetic honey. At least they remembered diet coke this year. Next year I will make sure I bring something that we can eat like a veggie tray at least.

Here is what we ate yesterday:

Breakfast: cereal, banana and skim milk
Lunch: salad with french on the side, grilled chicken and a small side of spaghetti with brown butter and garlic
Dinner: a grilled chicken sandwich and cookies

grocery shopping and feb challenge

Yesterday was a generally lazy day. My ds got us lunch and we ate leftovers for dinner. I went to Kroger after dinner and got:

2 bags of tortilla chips
2 jars of salsa
1 lb of white beans
2 lb of carrots
1 container of cheese dip
a half gallon of milk
2 bags of pistachios nuts

Total spent: $17.90

Yesterday we ate:

Breakfast: cereal, banana and skim milk
Lunch: burgers and fries
Dinner: leftovers

Feb Challenge

Ok today was a rainy day again. I didn't go anywhere until my bff came and got me to go to the cross stitch shop. ~smile~ My favorite shop.

Meals today were:

Breakfast: cereal, banana and skim milk
Lunch: broccoli and cheese soup
Dinner: date night with my honey- Mexican
snacks: chocolate cookies

Feb Chaallenge

Rain, rain. I guess it is better for Tennessee then snow snow. ~smile~ I love snow though. My honey has already used all of his snow days though so I guess we better not have much snow. As for our meals yesterday:

Breakfast: cereal and skim milk, banana
Lunch: leftovers or cereal
Dinner: baked chicken, broccoli with cheese, peas and carrots.
Snack: popcorn

Today is normally my shopping day but I do not have a car. So I will plan menus around what I have and see what I absolutely need. I will pick it up tomorrow or Monday. Sunday I like to try and stay home and relax after worship. Of course, this Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday so I might have to purchase a few things for that.

God Bless

Feb. Pantry Challenge

Yesterday I over did it. I went to my swim class in the morning and then in the afternoon I went mall walking. Today my neck is killing and I can't see the chiropractor till this afternoon. Eating wise was not bad.

Yesterday we ate:

Breakfast: cereal and skim milk
Lunch: leftovers
Dinner: baked fish, asparagus (from the freezer), peas and carrots


We are back to "normal". After three snow days and a five day weekend my honey is back to work. We heard on the radio, on the way to his carpool site, that his school district has used all of there snow days for this school year. Yeah. This means if there are anymore they are either go on weekends or tack it on the end of the year.

I need to carry over the eating from the pantry challenge to this month. I didn't realize how much we eat out until last month. So I am hoping to eat from my pantry this month with only buying milk, fresh stuff and non food items unless I find an amazing deal on something we use.

I am going to start today -- better late than never.
