Today was really cool, I ate lunch with Mikaylas kindergarten class! Mikayla was so happy and excited that she introduced me to every single person she knew. I'm so glad I could finally come, she always talked about how other moms came into eat lunch with their children. She was double excited because it was hot dog day at school, and I don't let her have hot dogs or ketchup at home! Needless to say... I didn't eat the school hot dog lunch like she did, so when I came home I was starving.
I made lettuce wraps with leftover chicken that my mother in law sent me home with one day. I mixed in a lot of mustard and a lil Miracle Whip Light. Then I split a piece of American Cheese and put it on the lettuce wrap, then rolled. I used to eat lettuce wraps all the time, they are filling if you pack a lot of stuff in them. (I always made them with the Bumble Bee canned crab meat... soo good!)
Some Jewish brand found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. I also made a sweet trip to the grocery store today and didn't buy anything with chocolate, since Pete gave up chocolate for lent. Its not like I ever buy chocolate and sweets... but I did buy ice cream, and its close to impossible to find chocolate-less flavors at the grocery store. I ended up buying Butter Pecan. Please... every good kind definitely has choc in it!!
If I could go off on a quick tangent.... Pete always gives up chocolate for lent... which is the SAME week that all of the Girl Scout cookies always come in. Meaning... we have a gazillion boxes of Samoas, Thin Mints, ad Tag-a-longs. Now they just sit and take up precious space for 40 entire days. If you are wondering, I gave up soda. I drink it a lot when I work since there is a soda machine next to my room, and in all faculty rooms.
I have to admit, I did eat this yesterday:
I know I'm technically not supposed to eat fish and definitely not sushi... but its only a simple California Roll... and I love sushi and don't wannnna give it up for 40 weeks.
Another tangent you ask? Okay. I never feel like cooking after a trip to the grocery store!! I LOVE going grocery shopping, spend so much time planning, picking, thinking... but as soon as I leave I want to go pick up dinner on the way home! Grrr. I never do... tonight I just made another quick din consisting of:
with Sauteed Spinach and shrooms
with a jar of this, and one of these sausages:
and a lil of this mixed in
and placed it all under green beans because I'm being lazy and don't want to use a lot of dishes.
Tomorrow Mikay has off from school, and I do too! I hope to accomplish lots of things.... or do nothing at all but relax. I guess it depends on the weather! And now I'm off to watch Never ending Story part II which will be interesting because I never liked it any of the 8,000 times my brother made me watch the first one.
