Assigning a day with a meal worked much better for my family this past week. We were able to eat at home successfully all days, although we changed two of the days just for kicks, having grilled chicken and homemade pizza. I decided that changing things up a bit works for me since my cabinet and freezer were the source of the ingredients. I'm planning a semi special meal for me and my boys on Valentine's Day (probably eaten a day late but.....hopefully we will all eat at the same time :)
I need to say that making two desserts for the week was a sort of mishap for me. I think the majority of the sweet stuff ended up in my tummy, although Boy #2 did help by consuming a bite or two. I also shared some with my Dad, and with my neighbors, but still ate more than my fair share. For some reason, I refuse to believe a day is complete without something sweet....and it rhymed....I'm a dork.
Hearts and flowers to you this week!

Have a super week. I've decided that I'm smiling at people all week just to make them think that I'm up to something :D
