Pot lucks

Hardest thing ever.
Lesson learned.
Completely my fault.
Totally have a game plan next time.

Very short post.
kids have to be on set early tomorrow.

Sorry but there is no vodka in the vodka sauce

Tonight I was in the mood for some vodka sauce with my penne.
Yes there is dairy in it but I was feeling a bit rundown with all the running around we did today.
First to renew my daughters entertainment work permit (and I still have to go back on Wednesday). Then FINALLY cutting our ties with our bank. Sorry but you have been screwing us for the past 13 years with your changing of hands, names, and your ridiculous fees. Then off to make some deposits on the girls coogan accounts and opening our own credit union accounts.
Very productive day.
We did take a break and stopped at our local Trader Joe's for lunch and picniked with the lovely LOUD parakeets.
After all was done I was able to take my nap and head to the library. My Celina is obsessed with reading the most books so that she can as many tickets as possible to win the grand prize of an iPad. Lovely girl.
Realizing I had to make dinner I took the easy way and picked up whole wheat penne, vodka sauce, and garlic bread for the family. No veggies. Estoy cansada.
Tomorrow I pray for a slow day.

On set and eating right...

Is not an easy thing to do. What with the jumbo Costco size Twizzlers and the different variety of sweet breads that can be found up and down the west coast. I'm happy to bring my own food. I'm not the talent. I'm just the mom so I don't feel "entitled" to eat from craft services which is just fine with me. I packed a big glass bowl full of broccoli salad and a sandwich with sprouts and veggies. And that was just perfect for me. :-)

Major headache as I detox from...

Unhealthy foods.
We did hang out at Disney's California Adventure and spent about 5 hours in Carsland.
Then we hit Souplantation for a late lunch/early dinner. I piled lots of veggies and ate until I was full. Tomorrow will be interesting since my youngest has acting and puppetry class and that takes almost the entire day.
Think I will just pack fruits, veggies, and nuts for tomorrow.

Now that graduation and end of the year celebrations are over, I can get back to good eating.
Not that eating out wasn't good.
I appreciate the break from shopping and preparing of our meals but I like knowing what was in my food.
Was it organic?  Did you add animal fat (lard) to cook my beans?
When I cut an onion or open a jar of garlic in my kitchen is what makes me happy.  Curry and coconut milk heating up in my small pot makes this girl very happy.
I thought I was going to go back to good eating today but this morning I remembered that we were invited to ANOTHER end of the school year get together.
So, tomorrow, hopefully I will be back in my kitchen.

Feel so blah....

And I know it has to do with my eating. I have no energy and my body feels off. So, to make sure I do what I need to do, I'm going to push myself to blog daily and up my vegetables and fruits.
