Look, I just don’t think I was bred to be a housewife. Not in the least bit and here are the clues:
I don’t like to clean
I don’t like to grocery shop
I don’t like to do laundry
I don’t like to COOK
I think that there is something wrong with me as a woman! Either way, at least I am trying. I’m on my “Lifestyle change” through WW and Monday was a BAD weigh in so I have told the hubby that this week we are going to try to eat cooked meals at home as much as we possibly can, no Blue Goose nor Ruby Tuesdays (salivating). Last night was only the second night but it is going pretty good. Hey, I’m trying, right? Here has been the menu for dinners so far:
Monday – Pizza (homeade)
Well this didn’t go so hot, as I was putting the cheese on the most delicious dough ever (left over from festival) Hubby gives the “pump the brakes” look and goes crazy over my cheese option. He was upset that I was using “Mexican” cheese vs. Mozzerella. I just had to laugh at this because to me, cheese is cheese. I love cheese and it all tastes good to me so I repeated to Hubby, “cheese is cheese” and that didn’t spark the best response. Lesson #1 learned, must have proper cheese. We put the sausage on his portion of the pizza, pop in the oven and about 20 mins later we have the most gorgeous looking pizza with yummy burnt cheese (again, I heart cheese, especially burnt). Here is lesson #2, Hubby looks at me and says, “where is the sauce?” Oh right, oops, forgot the sauce. The real name of this meal is now called, Mexican Sauceless Pizza, Bon Apetite!
Tuesday – Taco Pie
This probably doesn’t sound “healthy” but really I was so proud of myself on this little creation. Taco Pie is one of the easiest, quickest, cheapest meals to make. What you need: pie dish, cresent rolls (I used reduced fat), ground turkey, taco seasoning, reduced fat sour cream, reduced fat cheese (pick your favorite here) and baked tostitos. I’m happy to report that this was a huge hit with Hubby and I have to thank my mom and Jami who guided me through this little meal via phone calls and texts!
Again, I’m proud to have made 2 meals at home but I seriously DO NOT ENJOY this cooking-thing. Here is my request to all of you (all 5 of you – thanks to my loyal friends/family/hubby): Please send me your easiest, most WW friendly, quickest meals that you can think of that do not have veggies. That’s right, I forgot to tell you that Hubby doesn’t do veggies!
