2012 is closing soon

Wow has this year flown by!  Where has it gone?  This has been an eventful year with both kids getting engaged and Rachel moving home.  I had surgery in November after a trip to Boston and Ontario in October.  David is still driving to Joelton for work and carpooling has not been very successful so far.

Now is the time to plan for 2013.  I will be putting pen to paper and come back and post.  Hopefully it will be a productive year goal-wise.

Merry Christmas

I know I am a day late but Merry Christmas.  We actually celebrated on Christmas Eve and dh and I had a lazy day yesterday.  We had an amazing ham meal then and have been eating leftovers since.  Yum !!!!!!  I love leftovers.

May God richly bless you during this holiday season.

Playing catch up

I know it has been a while since I posted.  I am recovering from surgery still though I am doing a lot better now.  Since surgery I have lost 14.5 pounds (since Nov. 19) and a total of 51.5 this calendar year.  What a huge difference.  ~smile~

Food is playing a much different role in my life now and so is menu planning.  I need to plan more to make sure I get enough to eat of the right things.  I am still not really hungry on a daily basis but I know I need to eat.

Menu for the rest of this week:

Thursday:
breakfast:  oatmeal
lunch:  sandwich - dh; soup for me
dinner:  chicken, mashed potatoes and snow peas

Friday:
breakfast:  oatmeal or cream of wheat
lunch:  sandwich - dh; cottage cheese and fruit
dinner:  whitefish, green beans and sweet potatoes

Saturday:
breakfast:  eggs and toast (hard boiled for me)
lunch:  hot dogs and coleslaw for dh; soup of me
dinner:  meatball subs for dh; meatballs and veggie for me

I know that this is repetitive for me but I am still in the baby food stage and I have learned how to eat meat during this stage.  This should be the last week of this stage for me.  Next week is soft, not overly chewy stage.  I can add string cheese and scrambled eggs.  Yeah !!!!!
