this Aldi freezer meal plan from the blogosphere.
|It's not much to some people, but that's 4 meals: baked ravioli, mac & cheese, Souvlaki chicken, and alfredo sauce|
But then she turned 3 about a month ago. And guess what--someone's picky little tot learned the benefit of 'cause and effect.' I know, I know, I'm not supposed to use sugary foods and desserts to get her to eat her dinner (says all the scientists and child nutrition experts). But goshdarnit, it works!
She also responds to a bribe for her beloved cottage cheese, so all is not lost?
We enjoyed some (fake...microwaved) s'mores for dessert Wednesday night, because I was craving one and she'd eaten all her fish and some veggies.
Then Thursday, we had a bit of snow here, and I heard the DJ on the radio say, "Yeah, there's some snow, but amazingly no delays or cancellations today." I'm pretty sure every parent in this city breathed a collective sigh of relief that morning, since they cancel/delay school a lot here.
And that's the difference between Georgia and Indiana. (Not saying one is better than the other, although I wouldn't mind just getting a few inches of snow once a year and being giddy about it . . .)
- Go to Stations of the Cross at least once. (Yeah, I haven't been in YEARS and don't even remember what happens at this.)
- Floss my teeth every night. (Sounds odd, but so does giving up chocolate, right?)
- Read/pray the daily devo from Blessed Is She. They come straight to my email, and I'm really liking these!
If you want to join the Lenten bandwagon, I found out about this cool website/Twitter account called What to Give Up that gives you a new challenge each day of Lent. I told B he should do it, but not sure if he will.
Fri, Feb 27 - Set a reminder so you go to bed an hour earlier than usual. http://t.co/7e2zn5SfmR

Grace and Bonnie and Sarah. (I've actually had dinner with Sarah before, so I'm excited to see her again!)
