Let me just put a warning out there: Do NOT, under any circumstances, buy Blue Bell Mexican Praline ice cream. Because if you do, you’ll eat the entire half-gallon in one sitting. It’s that good. And you didn’t hear it from me, but Albertson’s has Blue Bell on sale for around $3.50 (it’s usually almost twice that). To give you a hint of what you’re dealing with here, it’s a caramel flavored ice cream with big chunks of pecans and pieces of actual praline sprinkled throughout. Ridiculous.
Anyhoo… so you know I haven’t been gorging on ice cream all day, breakfast was a bowl of plain yogurt with a chopped plum, cereal (Quaker Cinnamon Oatmeal Squares- what else?), dried cherries and honey. Plus a pumpkin chocolate chip bar.
For lunch I met my mom and a friend for lunch at Mi Cocina. I’ve said it before, but note to Mi Cocina: FOUNTAIN DRINKS, dammit. Seriously.
I wasn’t super hungry and just had a big bowl of tortilla soup with lime:
Perfect lunch for a chilly day!
I have all of these little “projects” that I want/need to get done before Jack gets here- wash all of the baby clothes, finish thank you notes, pack the hospital bag, make a bunch of meals to freeze, scrub down the entire house… Today I got a few things done but I need a serious kick in the pants in terms of motivation.
I’m a big fan of the Archer Farms whole wheat mini pizza crusts at Target. I know- shocking, right? In case you haven’t noticed, we buy pretty much all of our groceries at Target. The serving size is ridiculous (Each round serves 4???) , but you can eat an entire pizza without doing too much damage: 360 cals, 6 g fat, 12 g fiber. Not great- but still better than delivery. I topped mine with marinara, turkey pepperoni, mushrooms, pineapple, mozzarella and oregano.
Okay, The Office officially redeemed itself this week. Hilarious.
Today I was searching for freezer meals online and came across the whole “OAMC” concept: Once a Month Cooking. Apparently there’s a big following of people who cook a ton of food one or two days a month, freeze it, and then just reheat for the rest of the month.
What’s your take on this? Great or terrible?
Brian loves this concept. He thinks it would save a ton of money. While I think it’s great to have a few things in the freezer for dinner in a pinch, I think I would die of boredom relying on this type of thing every. single. night.
