kinda making that up :)
Chopped up onion on bottom of crockpot
Frozen chicken breast into crockpot...pepper and garlic them.
2-3 cans of cream of ___ soup - one being broccoli cheese soup, another being cream of celery...depends on how much chicken put in there if I need a 3rd can.
Cook on low 6-8 hours.
serve with broccoli over noodles or brown rice.

Mmmmm, sounds like comfort food.  I'd love it.  DH wouldn't.  Maybe I'll just make some for myself!  :evil:

Oh, I have every intention of posting in this thread, but this was not hte best week for it:

Monday (theatre rehearsal then band concert): DS ordered from Dominos to deliver at school--ordered a sandwich while his friends ordered the pizza. I had know idea the sandwich there was safe. Grrr.  DH and I thought we were picking him up for dinner but then didn't so went out to eat. The only safe thing for me was the gourmet-ish mac and cheese, which I sent back initially because of the chopped parsley topping it. Ick. (texture thing)

Tuesday (theatre reheasal then choreography rehearsal with a two hour break in between): Pizza from nearby pizza place--or he got the pizza at a nearby coffee shop (has been safe) while he did homework before walking back to school for choreography.

Wednesday (theatre rehearsal):  We were supposed to head to church for a weekly Wednesday potluck and youth group/ adult discussion group, but DS and I skipped out. He has too much homework.  So for dinner!!!!  Yes!!!! I cooked dinner!!!  Tortellini with a Lucini tomato and artichoke sauce.  I cooked spinach with the tortellini and sauteed onions, carrots and squash and stewed the in the sauce for a bit.  Yummy!

Thursday (theatre rehearsal, oboe lesson in the city, choreography rehearsal: It will be a sandwich.  He will eat in the car between oboe and choreography.  I'll make him a cheese slider (DH made some rye rolls this week) and will bring some mini yellow and red bell peppers stuffed with veggie cream cheese and spinach.

Friday (theatre rehearsal and two hours later at school meeting with his speech coach): Dinner out I guess.  Or a picnic in the car. 



Maybe in March we'll have dinner home again.  Maybe in March we'll get to play games again, too.  :)
Me: Sesame, shellfish, chamomile, sage
DS: Peanuts

GN, care to share your chicken-spinach patties recipe? 

I had to google   Maduros.  Though I have made fried plantains many a time, lol.  Now I have a fancy name for them.  ;)

been dieting since new year.

apart from the on going craving for booze, fat in any form, cheese, chocolate, potato crisps etc I have been fine. ~)
I walk a LOT, to stop eating and to stop the stress. but hey ho, lost a chin and bit of tummy.


friday was fish curry. ( I almost vomited at the taste, but strangely husband liked it. I had a diet microwave meal. which was bland, but nice. am NEVER eating fish curry again)

today, chicken breast cooked with veg, garlic , fresh basil and tomato. it was bland crap really. served with green salad, and sweet potato wedges.

sunday roast lamb ( just a thin slither, to give faint taste in our mouths) kids will be eating lots of this. diet roast potatos, veg, etc.

monday.
beef meat balls , tomato sauce and pasta. ( tomato sauce quite acidic, but daughter cooks this meal so cant complain)

tuesday.
paprika chicken and rice. we have had this a lot, so its getting boring.

wednesday. pork steaks, celeriac mash, green veg of some sort.

thursday.
salmon fillets for everyone but me, I cant eat any fish with the good oils unless I have a access to gaviscon through out the night and a bucket to vomit in. So i will have haddock or cod. oven baked. with some sort of carb, and veg.

friday.
chicken curry. made with fat free yog. kids have junk food.

no wine. no choc, but eventually some sort of decent waist size.

Its OK to have dreams:one day my kids will be legal adults & have the skills to pick up a bath towel.
