Also, I am using this public forum to encourage us to eat out less which includes better meal planning.

This Week's True Food Confessions
|We were lucky to have a lot of fresh vegetables to use this week for our cooking.|
We've been working on this eating-at-home thing for four weeks now and my attitude is starting to improve. There are still a lot of other things we'd rather do than cook, but it's becoming more of a routine and less of a struggle.
We had another successful week. Among the whole family, we only had a couple lunches out and pizza take out one night--the night of Theodore's unfortunate cooking misstep. The favorite thing we made were ham roll ups. We were trying to imitate the roll ups that we buy at Costco. They were easy to make and included cream cheese, cranberry jelly, ham, lettuce, and tomato rolled up in a whole wheat tortilla. Next time we make them, we're adding Swiss cheese.
Let me make a correction. What we really liked the most this week, was a pan of Virginia brownies we made and took to a crab feast. They had a caramel, chocolate chip, and nut filling and were VERY rich. Yum!
Until next time...
