So, today I felt the joys of the first trimester. I was really sick with little Jackson for a long time. I am hoping that this baby and I coexist a bit better with each other. So far, it has been pretty good. It is still really early, so I am well aware that things can change quickly. Today, I just felt worn out mostly. So, my sweet husband picked up the slack for me, and we had sandwiches today. It wasn't really a family meal, so to speak, but we got our tummies full. We munched off an on the whole afternoon and evening. It was a day of rest for everybody. No regrets here!

All that work did make for some big appetites. I varied from the menu a bit today, and I went with things that fill us up and make us feel good. We had ground beef, homemade mashed potatoes, and green beans. I grew up on mashed potatoes, and to have them tonight was so yummy. I spared no calories either, let me tell you. I did use fat free cream, but I used cream instead of milk, and real butter...and they were heavenly...true comfort food....at least to me anyway! What is your comfort food?

So week three!! I have long heard that anything you do for three weeks becomes a habit. Oh, how I hope that is true! The husband had a softball game tonight, so I got to use my smart oven again while we were away at the game. I set all the timers and temps and came home to something delicious! The dish was super easy. You simply dice chicken and cover it in picante sauce with a touch of brown sugar and Dijon mustard. Bake for 20 minutes, and it is super yummy. I also put the beans in the oven as well, so they would be ready when we got home. I was supposed to make rice with it, but we were too hungry to wait for rice, so we just dove in and cleaned the dish right out!

I was the only one that did not eat before church...not a good idea. My stomach was singing it's own part in choir practice tonight! But, when I returned home, the boys had saved me some...and it was yummy! We have made it almost 3 weeks!!
