deal with it.

Deal with it.

You know, the things that aren't perfect about you. And I'm not talking about having size 11 feet.  I'm talking about whats [physically, emotionally, spiritually] on the inside. 




And sooner is always better than later!  

Well, that's what I plan on doing. 

This is just one thing I plan to get feisty about,
though there are many things I'd like to deal with this year.

But this thing, my diet, is what needs a good kick in the boo-tay. 

So, what am I doing? 

Well, I'm being a wife,
and I'm cooking more meals than I ever have in my life. 


Really simple: whole wheat linguine with roasted red pepper and garlic sauce (via Prego, not me), and some slightly-sauteed shrimp. Later, I made flourless chocolate cake, which was only a slight kick in the dietary rear because it was made from scratch, not chemicals or hydrogenated oils.

But I can't be too proud.

It was my intention to make this meal about four or five days ago.

I'm a work in progress.

Any quick/easy/simple recipes, or even ones that take a lot of time and effort yet are DELICIOUS, send them my way.  Thanks in advance!

  1. Hey, Laura! I'm sure that you've got a Betty Crocker cookbook. Maybe even BHG? If you've got Betty Crocker, they have a really simple (read: Michael made it two nights ago) recipe for two-mustard chicken that's actually decent on the health-scale if you cut the recipe in quarters. If you've got a Better Homes and Garden one, usually in the very back they have "recipes for life" that are pretty easy. I just tried an Herbed Adobo pork chops from there last night.

    If you're interested in healthy "cultural" cooking, check out Marcus Samuellson's "The Soul of A New Cuisine". The Jerk Chicken is out of this world. And the Ethiopian food is fabulous---not that I'm biased!

    Not sure if you guys have food allergies or anything you're avoiding. Sorry I couldn't be more specific!
