Weekly Menu 1/6 - 1/10


So how are you holding up with your new years resolutions? I've lost a pound so far, but I'm pretty sure it was just a fluke in the scale since I haven't really done anything yet.

However, as I'm typing this I'm dressed in my gym clothes because I had a smart idea. If I put on the clothes I wear to work out, shouldn't that be more than enough motivation to actually walk down the three flights of steps, around the corner and into the fitness center? We'll see how that works out, but I'm hopefully.

I still have a huge backlog of recipes hanging out there that I haven't shared with you, but if you read through the menu posts going forward, you'll see the majority of them are healthier. I don't have any plans to turn this into a health-food blog, but I've also come to realize that I can't hide behind the excuse that a cooking blog is what's keeping me fatter than I'd like to be.

Sure, I love sharing desserts with you, and based off the page hits I get, you seem to enjoy them as well. But for the last year or so, as I've gained weight, I've justified it to myself by saying "well, you have a cooking blog. It's not like you can eat rabbit food every night and expect to keep any followers".

I've gained weight because I've ate whatever I've wanted without exercising. Sure, some of the recipes I've made definitely haven't helped, but unhealthy foods in moderation is fine as long as you're still exercising.

So while these may not all seem like lighter or healthier recipes, they are and I hope to get them shared with you soon!

Sunday - Cajun Chicken Pasta

Monday  - Three Cheese Tortellini and Mushroom Soup 

Tuesday - Abs Diet Burgers and Fries

Wednesday - Shrimp Creole

Thursday - Beef and Broccoli Bowl 

For breakfast this week, I've whipped up a hearty batch of blueberry oatmeal muffins. Lunch will either be soup or some type of wrap.
