Making progress on a lot of fronts.

(1) DS1 is starting to figure out potty training. We're not there yet, but definite progress. Staying in all weekend by the toilet was a huge step forward.

(2) I'm ready to implement my food at work plan. Brownies are cooling. (The ones DH and I didn't immediately eat, anyway Smile ) Tea bags are packed. At least my afternoon snack is covered!

(3) Meals are planned and groceries bought for the week.

(4) I cleaned and rearranged all my pantry shelves tonight, moving things around so I can actually see what we have. DH was very impressed, and then said, "Boy, we need to find a way to use up all of those garbanzo beans." Yeah, because when you can't see what you have you just buy more rather than looking for it. As a bonus, the new arrangement put our pots and pans in a much more convenient place. An all around win!

Feeling like it's a good start to the week. I'm tired, but I feel more in control. And I like feeling more in control.

    Great job with your progress! Will you make hummus with your garbanzo beans? Do you have any other ideas on how to use them?

    CCF -- I will probably make a gigantic batch of chickpea patties this weekend, and then freeze them. They are delicious eaten like burgers, or on top of salad greens (how we usually eat them), or in a pita pocket. I think they will be a good make ahead meal item. (I have to be a little careful eating too many beans while breast-feeding, which is why I'm not making hummus. Which I would eat way too much of!)

    I saw a recipe on FB today for chickpea and mushroom burgers ... it looked pretty good. Smile Maybe this weekend I'll get enough inspiration to make up a bunch of burgers for my lunches to freeze.
