Just poking in...

to say I stll have my head up my rear. Buying peanut butter cups hasn't helped. :-P Any advice on beating the sugar craving would be greatly appreciated.

In more pertinent to other people news, I have found an interesting place to put the things I've bought that I need to learn to ration (or not buy). In trying to hide the peanut butter cups from my kids (they'd eat the whole stash--no self control and I don't know where they get it of course), I found that if I put them in the back of the veggie drawer, not only are they safe from my kids but I have to look at the choices I should be making in lieu of the peanut butter cups when I reach for them. This does not always work but sometimes it does and I'll take sometimes right now.

And finally, since Jen wanted to hear more about my weekly menus, here are some of the things I've had recently that were quite tasty:

Spiced Chicken with Chickpea and Cucumber Salad I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs for this one because I am all about easy and peeling skin off the thighs didn't appeal.

Lemon Thyme Chicken with Sauteed Vegetables

Chicken and Prosciutto Salad with Arugula and Asiago I used whatever salad greens I had on hand for this one and skipped the chicken because the leftover rotisserie chicken I was going to use was yucky. But it was tasty anyway.

Tonight's dinner is going to be Lemon Basil Pasta and lunch tomorrow is a Grilled Strawberry Basil Cheese Sandwich. Beyond that I'll be at my daughter's dance Nationals so food will be catch as catch can. I'll have to get back to planning well next week.
