You've caught me on hot chicken salad night again. I love it and my mom's never had it so I'm gonna spend the two hours it takes to make it.

I'm thinking Hamburger Helper. Not sure what KIND of hamburger helper since I believe we have at least 5 different kinds (sale at meijer last week = 0.75 a box after coupons). Maybe the lasagna kind? I may let DH feel important and let him pick .

I haven't eaten anything today yet. I'm feeling yak-y.

Dinner tonight, no clue. Something easy ... now, to figure out who I can convince to cook it ...

I haven't eaten yet. I'm thinking about going to mom's and eating at her house. If not, it will be something super easy here.

The recipe I use is cream of chicken soup, mayo, celery, mushrooms, rice, chunks of chicken, sliced almonds, and buttered bread broken up into pieces on top to make a "crust." It's sooo yummy. You can't even taste the mayo; it just makes it creamier. Make it and give it a new name and he'll probably eat it without a problem. You have to trick men just like tricking kids when it comes to food.

That is SO TRUE! If I had told my husband about the meat-less meatballs, he wouldn't have eaten them.

Breakfast was grits and milk. Dinner was a lentil and millet dish seasoned with bacon. Supper will be pecan/carob bread with smoothies.

Morning sickness ... geez.

I was running through the timeframe in my head last night while trying to fall asleep. I don't know that it's physically possible ... lol.

Haha! I do that too.. he's more willing to eat it that way..
I let him pick stuff out at the grocery store too, like the type of salsa, or the box of cereal... You know what else i have to do? He *must* come to the store w/ me, he doesnt like staying home, but he's bad at the store, like annoying! He'll try to sneak in chips and stuff in the cart, or he'll hurry me when i'm trying to read the fine print on boxes/coupons/rebates...so if he's 'good' at meijer, i'll let him get a slushy when we're done.. and it works!! Lol, i love him SO much, but he's like a 5 year old, i swear! (and he's going to be 30 soon!!)

I hide food on my DH all the time. He claims to be 'allergic to soy', but it's really that he's a big baby and thinks anything related to it must be awful. Booo. So, I put soy in all kinds of things, and I laugh hysterically when he goes on and on about how he can't try (insert name) because he's allergic. Silly boys ...
