A Week of Easy Meals

Well, good morning.  Let’s continue on with my recent confessions, shall we?

  1. I spilled a little chunk of brownie and ice cream from a Dairy Queen Blizzard on the center console of my car last week and haven’t cleaned it up yet.
  2. Until this weekend, I hadn’t grocery shopped properly for at least a month.  Just didn’t feel like it.  Nothing sounded good except ice cream.  When I had other things to pick up at Target, I would throw some random food items along with coffee grounds and 25-calorie hot chocolate packets (the essentials) into my cart and eat those.

I finally snapped out of it on Saturday and decided to make a meal plan for this week, which I’m sharing today.  The shopping list and portion sizes are for one, with the exception of the yellow cake baked oatmeal which serves 10.  You can eat this “oatmeal” at any time of day and pretend it’s healthy, so it’s nice to have on hand.

Recipe Roundup

While I’m sure you enjoy reading about all the exciting activities I get up to in Ohio in the middle of winter, descriptions of how I spent Saturday and Sunday watching House of Cards on my iPhone because my MacBook broke (it broke, I dropped it, whatever) and my cruel and unreasonable employer (KIDDING) has prevented Netflix from running on our work computers would not make an interesting weekend recap.  So, since I had to produce actual content for today’s post, I thought I’d share a few good recipes I’ve made recently.  They’re not quite as healthy as the last batch I posted, but there is minimal cheese and plenty of protein involved.  I consider the day a win if I’m not digging into a giant bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats two hours after dinner anyway.
