I've often read that we should switch up our menus so we won't get bored and end up eating something we shouldn't.
I know for the most part that is true, but sometimes I like having the same meal several times in one week. Since I'm doing this by choice, I don't think I'm in a rut. Case in point, I've had a grilled chicken Caesar salad 4 times this week.
What can I say? I got some Romaine lettuce on sale, and I'm determined not to waste food any longer, I didn't want it to go bad before I used it. Made my own croutons, went easy with the cheese, and used a low fat dressing. It just seemed to hit the spot this week. In fact I'm finishing off my 4th while writing this blog.
Tonight I'm also having some raw veggies with low fat dip - just to get a few more veggies today.
I'm also in the middle of planning my menu for the next week, don't want to go to the store without my list. So far I've planned a variety of dishes, so no repeat of this week. I'm trying to work up a few menus that I can rotate over several weeks. That way my planning for the week will not take so long, and I can substitute some meals if I find a real bargain at the store or if I just want to try something new.
I've had a fairly low key day. Did some cleaning and spent time on the computer. Think I'll probably watch a movie tonight and do some knitting.
Hope you are all having a great weekend my friends. Thank you so much for your continued support. Some of my non Spark friends can't understand how I can have real friends on line. They just don't get it - you are true friends also. So I am thankful for all of you.
