It is Wednsesday

Not that's it's wordless but I love having a baby that naps!!!

On the menu today:Breakfast: Gluten freed blueberry waffles and eggs, Lunch:pb&j on waffles and chicken salad, Dinner:BBQ a la hubby, broccoli, fried rice.

Oddly enough this was my first time ever making fried rice and let me tell you it was a big hit. Joy your comment on my dinner notes from yesterday is right on! If I can extend the life of my pantry and not discard leftovers because we are sick of the same old thing my grocery bill will go down and we will be wasting less. Plus the leftover rice we all have been sick of since Saturday is now in our tummies which also satisfied another thing my hubby and I love.

We adore ethnic food. I would say 9 times out of ten when we go out to eat it is for sushi, greek, chinese, thai or some other type of food. I recently started making gyros and falafel but I'm realizing that maybe I need to start finding other ethnic recipes that we like so that by making them ourselves we can decrease those last minute, "I feel like dolmas tonight" or whatever the food of the moment is.

For the first time ever(two weeks ago) I made chicken stir fry and wondered why on earth it has taken so long for us(me:) to prepare this simple, delicious, healthy and frugal meal!!! Our entire family loved it! I realized all of our dinner dishes were either Italian, Mexican, or American...um like soups and home made mac&cheese etc...

Anyway, I think I will prepare chicken stir fry for dinner tonight...

Adorable picture. I hear you on making more foods yourself instead of eating out. I finally found a perfect sweet and sour chicken recipe and I make it instead of going out for Chinese usually. Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)
