    I've got some chicken breasts in a nice, herb-y marinade. I think I'm going to also make healthy(ish) mac and cheese and some veggies. It's a beautiful day here today. We'll probably take dinner outside with some beer or mojitos.

    I have leftover pizza stuff and leftover hamburger buns, so I made pizza buns. Yum!

    Pasta with clam sauce (white wine, clam juice, olive oil), with fresh parsley and parm.

    Oh and lots of Tums because my stomach HATES me.

    We're making sweet and spicy glazed salmon, a side dish with sauteed kale, leeks, onions and toasted pepitas, and some quinoa.

    P brought me home a chocolate vegan donut for dessert. I'm flyin' hiiiiigh.

    we were going to have this slow cooker chicken and blackbeans soup I made, but J and I went out for a walk to get fro yo. It was just soooo incredibly beautiful out today that we decided eat at this little diner with outdoor seating not far from our house. It overlooked the bay which was nice. The food totally sucked (but there was a lot of it!), but it was still a nice impromptu date.

    Dinner fail, last night. I set up the crock pot with pork chops in one of our favorite ways - White wine, ginger, a little brown sugar and soy. I loaded carrots at the bottom and had it ready to go. I forgot to turn the crockpot on before I left, so I called my mom (who was still at the house) to do it. She turned it on, but didn't set it to low or high so it stayed on warm all day. Raw pork chops. ugh. We ordered chinese take-out and I cooked the pork chops. That'll be dinner tonight.

    I was going to make shrimp tonight, but M wants my twice-baked potatoes and considering that his mom just kind of saved my life I have to do it. And I'm not going to lie, you all know how I feel about potatoes. I guess I'm a sausage for one more day.

    Homemade pizza with tomatoes, mozz, and portobello mushrooms. And Magners. And then we walked to the corner store for Ben and Jerry's (with a quick jaunt to the beach, to enjoy the air and sit on the lifeguard chair.)

    I love homemade pizza.

    We're making pesto shrimp skewers and a spinach salad with tomatoes from our little balcony garden. P picked up a few bacon wrapped scallops, so I'm allowing myself one.

    Pinot grio for dessert.

    All I wanted today was to pick at food. We put out some carrot sticks and snap peas, cheese, sausage and crackers, and made tiny sandwiches with sun-dried tomato hummus, cucumber and jalapeƱo sourdough.

    I've had a hard few days, food wise. I've been trying so hard to stay on plan, but with running back and forth to the hospital AND PMSing....I've made some bad choices. :sad:

    LOL, HBC. :lol:

    We're grilling in the backyard with the neighbors tonight. It'll be cheeseburgers, asparagus and sweet baby peppers on the grill, plus fruit salad and, because it's apparently gluttony day at Rancho Honey, we have cinnamon rolls with maple icing for dessert.

    I'll be over soon, Honey. I'll probably pass on the cheeseburgers but eat everything else including 2 servings of cinnamon rolls.

    You can have my rolls, keri, if I can have your burger.

    We are making paleo pizzas for supper! I found the crust recipe on pinterest and it's made out of cauliflower. Sounds crazy, but I really hope it's edible. My pizza is pesto shrimp and the kids are making ham and mushroom. I've dropped two lbs this week, but the real test is how my jeans fit and it's way too hot up in hurr to try.

    I bet cauliflower pizza would be good! When one of my girlfriends was doing Atkins, we made personal "pizzas" with portobello mushroom crusts.

    I've seen that cauliflower crust recipe! Let me know how it is, Lucy! I had some grilled chicken and Mac and cheese.

    That sounds really good - I wonder if I quickly made the dough before B got home, if he would notice the difference...

    We had lobster rolls. 3 lobsters for $13.50. Can't beat the Asian supermarket.

    I'm loving the lobster prices in new England this summer too Fitz!

    We had tortilla soup because even if it is 80 everyday, it's been rain storming like a mofo for a day and a half and that just calls for soup.

    Lemon cookies for dessert. And chips ahoy, which I buy once every few years because I keep telling myself they will be good, then pet the usual, I am let down. Of course, I'll eat them anyway!

    I went nuts on some cheese and crackers. Fuck. PMS Y'ALL!

    W&C, I think the chewy Chips Ahoy are ok, not as good as mine but adequate. Original Chips Ahoy suck, though. Sometimes Danny wants to buy them because they're a "milk dunking cookie", but that always ends in disappointment.

    What is it with dudes and Chips Ahoy? B likes them too, and buys them with milk. If I want a cookie, I want a damn good cookie.

    Fortunately, our local corner store has Tates, which are the fucking most awesome store-bought cookies on the planet. I have pretty much converted him at this point. :lol:
