Today I embark on a month-long journey of daily posting. Quite a feat for someone who posts sporadically, dusting off cobwebs from my WordPress Dashboard every now and then.
But I can try.
Today I am recovering from yesterday’s dosing of over-indulgence. It was a fun time had by all, but when Halloween falls on a day before school, we’re a little less than perky the next morning. Surprisingly the middle-schoolers were up and out the door on time. They have the earliest start to the day (not including Frank). They trusted me enough to stay home with their candy, too, silly children. Actually, it was quite safe with me. As my newly dropped pant size becomes snugger on me, I am sharply reminded that candy thievery is not within my best interest. Unfortunately, fatigue often launches me to a nearly insatiable urge to munch continuously. Thank goodness I had some Lean Cuisines on hand. I allowed myself 3 small candies, and that was it.
And then I allowed myself to scarf down the remainder of my Ben & Jerry’s Oatmeal Cookie Crunch. I guess it is OK if I can get myself under control. Starting tomorrow.
In continuing a more responsible way of meal-planning and preparing, tonight’s dinner:
2 bags of Trader Joe’s (Trader Mings) Orange Chicken prepared with 1 bag of frozen stir-fry veggies t0 stretch the servings a bit further and add a bit of veggieness to the meal. The entire family really likes this chicken. I serve it with a side of long grain, white rice. Pretty decent, if you figure I can feed 6 people dinner for less than $10.
