Meal Plans for the Week

You might not know this but it turns out that wishing you were dead while withdrawing from Paxil isn’t really conducive to cooking dinner.  Lucky for me my MIL came to town during the height of Vomit-A-Poolaza 2012 and she cooked every night (and lo it was glorious) and sometimes I would wander into the kitchen and eat a bite of something, but mostly I ate no dinner at all for about three weeks. (I lost 26 pounds. At one point I didn’t eat for over 48 hours. Have I mentioned how much this experience sucked?)

Anyway, no one here starved, but I think it’s safe to say that we didn’t climb any heights of culinary excellence since mostly we defrosted Costco chicken meatballs.  I finally decided after another meal of hamburgers, grapes, and mini bags of potato chips that I should probably start meal planning again.  I feel like this must be a good sign. When I feel like cooking it means I feel like myself again.

So this is what we’re eating this week:
