I am finally back home. Whew! I thoroughly enjoyed my vacation but I'm also glad to be back to a routine. Breaks are nice once in awhile but I thrive on routine and plans!

One of the first things I did was create a menu for this week. Hubby and I are trying to lower the fat in our diet. We decided to break out the Newstart cookbook and start cooking our way through it. Well, I'm cooking and he's taste testing. All the recipes listed with page numbers are from Newstart and the rest are recipes I already make.

Lunch – Quesadillas
Dinner – Hot dogs
Other – Make Whole Wheat Bread, pg. 5

Lunch – Sandwich with nut butter and fruit spread (homemade), see pg. 140 & tofu cottage cheese, pg. 141
Dinner – Macaroni & “cheese”, pg. 107

Breakfast – Rice crepes, pg. 32 with blueberry topping, pg. 39
Lunch – Leftover macaroni & cheese
