    CountryGirl10- What a great idea with the pizza crusts! Have fun with the little guys.

    TheRealNCYankee - great job on keeping up your Whole 30 plan!

    Dr D - I believe I would fall in love with swoodles. :-)

    RFB - glad the meds are working!

    lindabates - Feel better soon. :-(

    raesmom1612 - Have fun making messes...I mean cookies. :-)

    Yesterday I made my favorite pizza dough and today I divided it into 12 and made "individual" size pizza crust and pre baked them. When my visiting grand boys (age 3 and 19 months) get up from their naps we are going to make individual pizzas. And tomorrow we are going to make rolled out cookies.

    A half-price steak salad from the place where I work on weekend nights. The struggle is real but so is the dedication to my Whole30 effort!

    RAESMOM1612 - like "trees"! I love that name, and wished I'd known to refer to broccoli that way when our kiddos were young. But they were pretty good about eating veggies. Helped a lot that we had a garden back then and they could help me harvest items when sweet, tender, and tasty. I'd blanch slightly immature green beans and they'd carry them around in a baggie to munch as a crunchy snack - nothing added!

    Have fun baking w/Rae! Isn't Little Ziti old enough for some Mess Making by now as well? LOL

    Glad you are feeling better RFB

    DrD those doodles and swoodles sound fun and silly. I can totally get Rae to eat something if it has a silly name lol

    I pulled out pork cutlets today may throw them in the oven with some sweet and sour sauce and serve with yakisoba noodles and stir fry veggies.

    I promised Rae we would bake (my poor kid is going through "make a mess withdrawal") so maybe cookies tonight or chocolate muffins.

    Meatballs, spaghetti sauce, green beans, and zoodles! This is my second batch of zucchini noodles. While mine still don't look much like the photos of zoodles I've seen posted online, they're a little less chunky than my first batch. Inspiralizer comments online indicate that I may have applied too much force the first time around, which yields a thicker noodle. Next I want to try my hand at swoodles (sweet potato noodles). :-)

    Faye- thanks for your well-wishes! And yes... finally gave in to taking Nyquil and Dayquil, and wow, they helped a lot.

    Tonight is leftover BBQ pork, and I'm going to make corn casserole using the free Dean's Dip from the past HT SD.

    I've got a bad cold so dinner is looking like frozen pizza

    I had been planning to have shrimp or egg salad on a salad, but the 50% off Jersey Mike's online order coupon code just appeared so that's now a distinct possibility!

    RaleighFoodBlogger - I hope you are feeling better today!
