When the kids choose the menu

We planned a sort of laid back weekend this weekend. We really needed a break! So when I was going to the store Friday, I asked my daughter what she wanted to eat this weekend. She said “Good Food!”

Well, that narrows it down, doesn’t it?

She definitely wanted the Pecan Crusted Chicken. Her boyfriend likes green beans, so we had to have those, and we topped it off with cooked apples for a side dish.

For Sunday they picked Teriyaki Chicken with buttered noodles, and a big tossed salad.

And we made potato chip cookies.

It was a weekend of great company, relaxing, and great food.

And the kids made the mistake of telling me about the new oldies station…

Everything is cleaned up, and I’m ready to settle in and watch a movie. Oddly enough, as much as everyone else likes them, potato chip cookies are not my favorite – but there is some chocolate mousse and some raspberries left that have my name on it.

Oh, you thought they were going to pick pizza and burgers, didn’t you? Not often around here. My daughter spent about an hour on Rebel With a Fork. She was reading the recipe for the Pecan Crusted Chicken, and she said, “hey that’s pretty easy – even I could make that!”

Yep, that’s the idea!

Fast, easy, healthy. Oh sure, it’s not what the health gurus are trying to sell you – but it’s a lot more enjoyable way to get thin and healthy. Join the Rebels! >>>

    I love your website and have been following it for some time. My only complaint; ever time I open the home page or follow one of the links you send in the newsletter, the scrolling advertisement for one of your books is a real distraction and irritation as you have to wait for it to stop moving before you can close it. You risk irritating those who may want to read your messages but are distracted by this advertisement…..
    Just food for thought.

    Hi Jeanine,

    I’ve been meaning to fix that. Even though it’s a free ebook, it’s still annoying to wait for it to scroll over, you’re right. Thanks for the nudge!
