Farm Fresh - Week 1

Monday, August 23, 2010

The good: we've been eating tons on fruits and veggies.
The bad: I'm hungry all the time! I miss my starchy, carb-filling snacks. 
 But I know my body will adjust and if feels good knowing 
I can pour myself a second glass of wine because I didn't eat any empty calories 
I am feeding my family really fresh, healthy meals. 

Plus, I'm really expanding my culinary adventures.
I made HOMEMADE CRACKERS the other day. 
I didn't even know you could do that!
And it was easy.
And delicious.

Caprese sandwich with tomato, basil, and mozzarella 

Week 1:

Monday - pasta with eggplant sauce & salad
Tuesday - steak with brandy sauce, potatoes, & salad
Wednesday - Caprese sandwiches on olive bread from Famers (yum!)
with roasted corn salad
Thursday - Burgers with fruit salad & potatoes
Friday - homemade crackers with salami, cheese & tomato
Saturday - out to pizza with friends
Sunday - RJ bbq'ed quite possibly the best salmon I've ever had, salad
& cous cous

Landon's just glad there is still yogurt on the menu

Oh, and the two "open" choice grocery store items last week were:

Hamburger buns
Tortilla chips
