The Goose has decided that she wants to learn to cook, so she has taken over the Wednesday night dinner (with assistance of course). And I am eating healthier over all.
I have always eaten a standardized breakfast, an over easy egg on a corn tortilla. But now I find myself standardizing my lunch as well. Spinach Salad. I change the toppings based on what is around, but it always has some sort of nuts and some sort of cheese on it. I am currently obsessed with the dressing from Thursday nights salad. I made a vat of it and stuck it in a squeeze bottle in the fridge. Just as easy as store bought dressing. Twice as tasty.
I love when life gets on a roll!

After a busy week, Friday night's dinner has to be easy.
All I want is to relax and enjoy my family.
The best part of tostadas is that they can be formulated to please everyone!
|Chicken Piccata with Summer Vegetable Pasta.|
Recipe from Cooking Light.
If you make this one (it is very, very good) do yourself a favor and prep it in advance.
It took longer to make than expected, but that was because I didn't read the prep involved before starting.
|French Dip with green beans and Tim's Asiago, garlic oven fries.|
The French Dip recipe is from the blog A Year of Slow Cooking.
If you haven't visited Stephanie O'Dea's blog before it is a great resource for a busy family!
Tim's Asiago garlic oven fries recipe will be posted soon.
So how did you do this week? Have you been menu planning? Are you taking pictures? Do you find there are other changes that are developing in conjunction with the process?
