Hi! I can’t believe it has been about two months since my last post.  During that time we packed up and moved to Texas. We arrived on June 26 and have been busy “settling” ever since.  Just a couple days ago if felt like we could finally start cooking in our new kitchen.  Since we landed in TX our appetites and cravings are way different.  We aren’t as hungry and stay fuller longer. We also are drawn to cold fruits, veggies and salads.  Even gooey melty cheese (my all time favorite) sounds way to heavy and greasy.  Who knows if these changes will last. Everyone knows that I can’t stay away from cheese too long.

This weeks menu is very simple with a lot of help from Costco.

Brown Rice Sushi (Costco) and Fruit Smoothies– Greek yogurt, one peach,some  frozen berry mix, 5 ice cubes,  three big handfuls of spinach and a little honey.

Asian Chicken Salad (Costco)

Sundried Tomato & Spinach Chicken Sausages (Costco) served on a whole wheat bun with sliced up carrots, red bell pepper and cucumbers on the side.

Lemon Pepper Halibut (Costco) served with Greek Pasta Salad– whole wheat pasta, bell pepper, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, marinated artichoke hearts, feta mixed with Greek Salad Dressing

Sundried Tomato & Spinach Chicken Sausages and Roasted Veggies – bell peppers, onions, mushrooms and zucchini’s chopped up and mixed with a little Italian dressing and roasted in the oven at about 400 degrees until tender. Served with a Spinach Salad topped with grapes, peaches, almonds, feta and balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

Lemon-Berry Shortcake (special dessert to celebrate Kalebs first day of work)
