No pizza night this week since we will be making our own. It's easier on the budget and healthier too! Can you tell I'm trying to convince myself? Yeah, thought so.
Someone asked me about lunches and snacks. I don't post them because I don't plan them!
Some of our regulars are...
tuna on crackers
'snack' trays as my kids have labelled them. Actually, it's more like a 'deli' tray: cold cuts, cheeses, pickles, olives, fruits, pretzels, Sun chips, etc.
You know, regular lunch stuff. Nothing exciting.
So, what are you eating this week? Click on over to Org Junkie to list your ideas or get some new ones!
Have a fantabulous week!
P.S. I'd love to link you to some recipes, but I never follow a recipe exactly. So rebellious.

A few days ago, as I poked around Homespun Living, I found a recipe for Orange Pecan Scones. Quickly bookmarked that specific recipe thinking it would make a great Saturday morning breakfast. Fast: check. Easy: check. Simple ingredients: check. Different: check. I couldn't wait to try it out! This Saturday, however, had other things in mind for me. Things that would bore you to tears. Or maybe you'd long to be visiting your dentist instead of reading my post. Either way, Saturday was a bust.
begged persuaded my husband to purchase lunch out today, no one was hungry for dinner. So guess what I made? I know, you could never imagine. The Orange Pecan Scones. Shocked, aren't you? There were heavenly!
Now, some of my friends do not like scones. They say scones are like eating cardboard. They don't know what they are talking about. And certainly, they've never had these scones.Now, go make them. Or at least bookmark the recipe for future use!
Also, poke around her site for yourself. It's amazing! She is very talented.

It's hosted by SELF magazine. Cristin Dillon is a registered dietitian who posts her daily food intake for all the world to see! I spent half an hour yesterday checking it out. Aside from all the restaurant eating, it seems fairly realistic. Hey, the chick eats pizza and drinks lattes!
Check it out at Eat Like Me.
