Work in Progress Wednesday

Yesterday I finally finished that blue and brown blanket I've been working on for what seems like 2 years.  And I started another one with some yarn that was donated to our church group for hospice blankets. 

This is some old stuff ladies.  Kmart is no longer in business around these parts and the skein has a price tag on it that says $1.27!

I'm linking up over at Ambassador Crochet.

Menu Plan Monday #3

Well last week didn't go so well.  We had some crazy cold weather here in town and that made our schedule all jacked up because my Mom had to pick up the boys a few days last week.  Which means Mom cooked dinner and I didn't get to some of my planned recipes. 

So here's the plan this week:

Monday - Cheesy Chili Mac from Weight Watchers (I'm not sure if this link will show up if you aren't a member) 7pts

Tuesday - Chicken Enchilada Soup 8pts with cheese, 5pts w/o the cheese

Wednesday - Chicken Teriyaki with Broccoli from Weight Watchers.  This one came highly recommended by Becky. 7pts

Thursday - Asian Turkey Broccoli Slaw (I put this in my recipe builder with just chopped broccoli and cabbage, WW doesn't recognize broccoli slaw, and I got 2pts eating them as lettuce wraps, extra for tortillas)

Friday - Fish Tacos from last week we never made. 9pts/2 tacos

Logan has started writing tutoring on Tuesdays and Thursdays so those will be the tricky days because it's hard for us to get right home when we are leaving MawMaw's house.  :)

Superbowl Sunday

We have a big party to go to on Superbowl.  I usually drink too many margaritas and snack on too many delicious snacks. 

These are what I'm bringing to the party.

I have a feeling my diet is screwed this week.  But I'm just gonna have fun Sunday and enjoy being with my friends and watching a game that I have absolutely no interest in...and then start again Monday on plan.  I'm doing really well and I like how things are going.

I haven't been working out like I used to either.  I kind of gave up around the holidays and it is so hard to get started again once you quit.  The thing is that I have this strange urge to start running...and it's been WAY too cold for my TX blood to be running outside.  This week might be the week that I HAVE to do something though to even out the weekend glutony.

Good luck to me!

Chicken Stroganoff...and meal plans

So Monday nights dinner was de-lish!

Skinny Chicken Stroganoff from The Pampered Chef.

Please ignore my ugly dishes. =)

The boys approved, they practically licked the bowl.  Logan had 3 bowls!  Jack even ate the mushrooms, even though he didn't know they were in there.  Wahahahaha...I love tricking my kids into eating vegetables.

Tuesday was kind of crazy and we ended up eating dinner at Mom's house, spaghetti, spaghetti tacos for the boys.  Logan ate a taco and a full bowl of spaghetti there.  I think he might be hitting a growth spurt which kind of worries me since he is already only about a foot shorter than me.  I predict a 6th grader that is taller than me in a couple years.

Tonight is Beef Tamale Bake which should be good since there is abnormally cold weather hitting our area.  Snow in Houston=Ridiculous!
