have more energy than I have had lately! We have been on the road, had visitors, and now I have a cold. Oh joy. But I did manage to get my menu plan together for the coming week. That makes such a difference. Basically, when I feel the urge to eat, I go to the frig, look at the menu plan and get going. Otherwise? I nibble my way through things I ought not, and still end up hungry. This way? I know there is a balance in there somewhere!

There is an added benefit of saving money, as well. It is amazing how short my grocery list was this week. As a treat, I bought a humungous container of cottage cheese at Costco, and had a bowl of strawberries and cottage cheese for supper tonight. Cottage cheese is my comfort food. My ULTIMATE comfort food. I like it with baked potatoes, or with fresh fruit. Rick had leftover scalloped potatoes with cottage cheese, so we were both well fed easily! Tommorrow is the start of the menu plan so it worked out pretty well. Fruit and cottage cheese makes a great meal for about the same "cost" as soup and crackers, so I imagine I will be substituting a bit here and there until the container of cottage cheese is gone!
