Dinner's a big deal because I literally have not been able to stomach the thought of cooking for a huge percentage of this pregnancy. Honestly, I don't even like to grocery shop and I normally LOVE to shop here! But today I made a decision to subscribe to a meal planning program that will make my shopping trips less stressful and I don't have to think ahead as much (because, as we all know, thinking and pregnancy do not go well together). It's a highly-recommended site and it only costs me $1.25 per week (paid every three months). It's a price I'm happy to pay to be able to provide healthy meals for my family again. If you aren't organized or motivated (ME! ME!) enough to plan your own meals right now, definitely check out E-Mealz.com. From what I can tell, the meals are simple and can be customized to a particular diet (low-fat, gluten-free, etc.) or even to what store you shop at (Walmart, Kroger, etc.). I can't wait to try out some more and get some new meals into our rotation.
In closing, I'll leave you with a picture of our first E-Mealz attempt and my first homeade attempt at much of anything lately. If you try it, let me know what you think! (By the way, this is obviously a picture of the leftovers...lunch tomorrow-CHECK!)
