We've had a fairly quite week. Light schooling was held and we relaxed a lot. Some of the children have the sniffles and so we are trying to get them recovered. Hopefully the others left without the cold doesn't get it! :)
I have been trying to moreso watch what I am putting in my mouth as well. I sort of fell off the calorie counting wagon for a while, thus gained 3 pounds! :( So here I go again, in hopes that I lose 13 more pounds this coming year. Last year I lost 17 (3 gained back) so hopefully it'll be doable. I turn 40 this coming week so hopefully I can be fabulous at 40 in so many ways....including weight-wise! :)
Despite being back on the calorie counting wagon, I have been having fun with cooking and baking! This pic was snapped right as I was about to make some oatmeal cookies. I bought some oatmeal in bulk, which came out to about .41/lb. Needless to say, we'll be eating oats quite a lot. Ha!
I had fun making some shrimp and grits this past week. It's a southern dish, quite common around here. Shrimp is one of my favorites. Long story short- I went to the dentist office and they had a print hanging on the wall of a local famous, seaside landmark. I told the dentist that it reminded me of shrimp and grits. So he, the hygienist and I talked of how we make the recipe. I think that dentist visit cost us more than a cleaning! Thankfully the local store had shrimp buy one get one free! Hopefully this coming year we can do some shrimping of our own. I think that'll be much cheaper. ;)
