It’s a New Day….It’s a New Dawn…

And I’m feelin’…

Tired and old and 31 weeks pregnant (tomorrow!).

But I got a lot done today!  It’s too early for me to “nest,” but man, I got a lot done!  No excuses for not having a plan of what to eat or what to prepare.  I have our menu for the week worked out and I have ALL of my veggies prepped and ready to go!  I even have some veggies roasted to throw in my eggs tomorrow morning and a Greek Chickpea Salad *almost* ready for several lunches this week.

So…here are a few pictures of my VERY busy Saturday!

Allergy Free Apple Dutch Baby

This was my attempt at an allergy free version of a recipe I found in Family Fun magazine.  The kids loved the top but didn’t like the apples!  One more trip to the drawing board and we’ll see what happens!  I did have a bite and it was quite yummy, but MY breakfast consisted of plain Greek yogurt, a few drops of liquid stevia, chia seed and trail mix.

Today's haul from Kroger

This is most of what I got from my shopping trip to Kroger today.  Add a gallon of milk and a few cans of shaving cream and that’s about it.  I also had some other produce in the fridge, like peppers, celery and carrots.  I did end up going to Sam’s Club as well, and got 6lbs of chicken, 5 lbs of apples, 2 lbs of strawberries and a big, fat cantaloupe.  The chicken and fruit will carry us into next week, too.

Sunbutter Apple Sandwich with Raisins

This is my 4YO’s favorite new snack/lunch.  I can’t say I blame him, although I would put dried cranberries on mine. :)


Here’s my lunch for today:  roasted chicken, roasted asparagus, Sabra hummus, mixed peppers and strawberries.  YUM!

Easy Crock Pot Spaghetti Sauce on Roasted Veggies

And tonight’s dinner: Easy Crock Pot Spaghetti Sauce on top of a truckload of roasted veggies.  I roasted zucchini, mushrooms and peppers and topped them with the sauce.  And cheese.

Got Cheese?

In the interest of full disclosure, I always take my food pics BEFORE I add all the cheese.  Only because you’d never know what was underneath it.  Today’s meals make it look like I went all Paleo on you all, but I just can’t give up my cheese!!!  For the record, it’s a combo of Parmesan cheese and Cabot Tomato Basil Cheddar.  Those folks in Vermont know how to do cheese!

And now I’m off to:

  • put the leftovers away,
  • finish my Greek Chickpea Salad for tomorrow,
  • separate my 6 lbs of chicken,
  • do the dishes, and
  • watch a movie with Mr. A2A (if I don’t fall asleep before the end!!!)
