I often boil or bake my potatoes but I am horrible for dressing them up!
Tonight we had a pork stir fry. For a coating, just to give the pork a little extra flavor, I used wheat germ, and the soy sauce was less sodium. There were some water chestnuts and peas in there too! I know, bad me for a lot of carbs again but I do add healthy things in the mix as well.

We did make pork chops and potatoes and peas for supper. I know potatoes aren't the healthiest thing to eat, full of carbs, but they are something that's going to be hard for me to give up. I do love potatoes.
It really isn't uncommon for us to make at least one meal at home. Generally supper. We do normally eat breakfast and lunch at home but often those meals are snacks in a way. We're more likely to make breakfast than lunch though. I want to work on that a bit and be more conscious of the foods eaten for breakfast and lunch.

I have been doing the same thing with planning my meals at the end of the week for the following week. I didn't do it this past week, and it's driving me crazy! I miss having that structure. Back to it this week!

back! It sounds like you are going in the right direction. Working on organizing the kitchen is an important step that will save you time in the long run. As for the meal planning, you can still make healthy meals with this weeks groceries and then you've got your plan for next week.

I sat down and went through some of my healthy cookbooks and made up a menu for the week and then turned that into a grocery list. We do our grocery shopping on Friday or Saturday, depending on when I work, so I am ready for buying and making all kinds of yummy foods next week! I had wanted to get o work on eating some of these meals (because the recipes sound so tasty) sooner but we have already got our groceries for this week. Event though I can't fully put this plan into action just yet I feel good about getting it started. From now on I am planning on doing up a menu and grocery list on Thursday nights.
I have been spending a lot of time over the last few days in my kitchen, cleaning, and finding it under the mess. I am not an organized person and that's proving a hard thing to break but I am determined. There is way too many things in the kitchen that really don't belong there. When I do successfully get it completely done and am ready to move forward with it I am going to be much stiffer about keeping it that way.
