It’s been a whirl-wind handful of days. We’ve been out of town visiting family for the holidays and just got home last night. It’s safe to say that I am very happy to be home and in my own kitchen again. While it’s always nice to have someone else do the cooking for you, it’s also nice to be in control of what I’m being fed! I feel like a lump! However, it has spurred me to again get back on track to some weight loss and healthier eating. We generally eat fairly healthy but portion sizes are the biggest issue. I’m going to be focusing very diligently on keeping that in check. This week doesn’t lend itself to many Moroccan recipes. I’m just not in the mood! Sticking with fast and easy meals!
Some news for readers is that I got a nice new digital SLR camera!! That means improved pictures and more pictures!!! I hope you’re excited as I am. (I’m excited can you tell?) I am also going to be working on a video in the next few weeks about menu planning. I’ve gotten a few requests from readers who would like more information and a better tutorial. I’m thinking of a menu planning class. Like it?
This week we’re eating some favorites as I have a busy week ahead:
Monday – Chef Salads
Tuesday – Asian spiced Tilapia with Quinoa
Wednesday – Crock Pot Beef Stew (my favorite!)
Thursday – Chicken with Cannelini Beans (a new favorite)
Friday – leftovers
Saturday – little man’s birthday and New Year’s Day – appetizer buffet/ open house.
Sunday – Tacos
