An Entire Post About What I'm Eating This Week

So I've been on this kick all week to not purchase anything food related until the weekend. On Sunday, I went to the grocery store and bought enough groceries to last us through the week. I have made dinners that provide plenty of leftovers so that we can bring them to work for lunch. With Christmas being just around the corner and some pretty big projects on the horizon, it's time for the money crunch!

So far, I've stayed true to my word. I've either eaten a bowl of cereal at home or made something for breakfast here at the office everyday. I've had leftovers for lunch and cooked for dinner.

There have been a few times this week when I've gone off of the charted course. Take Tuesday, for instance. When I came home from work Tuesday afternoon, I was so looking forward to putting on my pajamas and making some dinner and watching Biggest Loser on the couch. Then Grant called and said "Have you started dinner yet?". When I said I hadn't, he said "Don't! Put a dress on, we're going out!". I got all excited until I realized that he had been offered tickets to go to a LPGA dinner with our friends Justin & Julie.

I knew I couldn't take the opportunity away from Grant. He got to see alot of his favorite female golfers. Michelle Wie, Paula Creamer, Anna Nordqvist, Brittany Lansicome. He also got to see some familiar faces from the golf channel. I have to admit though, my favorite part was the guest musical performer, Josh Kelley. He is talented, but more importantly, he is married to Katherine Heigl from Grey's Anatomy. But more importantly, he is married to Katherine Heigl, star of that great early 90's Disney flick, My Father the Hero. He sang the most beautiful song that he wrote after they adopted their new baby girl. Sooooo sweet. Anyways, I didn't cook for dinner that night, but it was still free!

I also went a bit off course yesterday morning. Typically, I am the first one to leave the house every morning. Yesterday was different though because I was running late and also Grant had an important meeting to go to, so he left before me. It wasn't until he had been gone for 10-15 minutes or so that I was trying to leave but couldn't find my keys. I called Grant who informed me that they were on the floor of his car! He couldn't change the time of the meeting so I had to sit at home until his meeting was over.

So, when I heard how long his meeting was going to be, I called my office, explained the situation, then put my pj's back on and enjoyed my morning on the couch with a bowl of Life cereal! It was a delightful surprise. I didn't get to my office till noon!!

And now, here we are, at Thursday. Which totally feels like it should be a Friday. I had a waffle with peanut butter for breakfast and plan on eating a Lean Cuisine for lunch. Then for dinner.... should I make breaded pork chops with potatoes au gratin or should I make PW's Meatloaf with baked potatoes? I can't decide!


  1. I am now hungry. Thank you. And no, I'm just not quite sure what you should make for dinner. It all sounds so good.

  2. You could have taken a taxi to work!

  3. ok, cute! aaaand, do you remember the line in the beginning of "How To Lose a Guy in Ten Days" and the girls are talking about the things Kate Hudson will do to lose the guy and the brunette say "Call him in the middle of the night and tell him what you had to eat that day" and the other one that told Mike she loved him in like two days says "what's wrong with that?" hahaha the title of this blog alone made me think of that and giggle.

  4. you're so good girl! I have such a temptation to go grab something. IT doesn't really help that I can't go home and cook at night - I have to work until 10:30p - so it's REALLY challenging for me! I may have to take your challenge up in a few weeks (next week is Thanksgiving and I know I'll eat a lot then!!! haha)
