Meal Planning Monday FAIL

So, yeah. We ate out most of last week. We're sucking at this meal planning thing. The only meal I made was a large pot of macaroni and cheese which we've been eating ever since.

I take that back; we made Lemon-Roasted Chicken last night, and it turned out pretty good. If you actually like chicken, unlike me, you might even say it was delicious. We made it with the orzo listed in the recipe, but not the arugula because they only sell it by the 1/2 ounce around here, in with the herbs, and it's really expensive. I'm eating leftover chicken on a salad for lunch today, so the leftovers are really useful too.

After a stressful week last week I had a hard time relaxing this weekend, and didn't get anything done that I had planned. This week is not looking to be any better, so I need some help. What should I do to relax? Any suggestions? Because my usual glass of wine and a steaming hot bath aren't allowed right now.

What about a foot spa? Maybe soak your feet in some nice hot water with some bath salts and then rub (or, better yet, have Aaron rub) some peppermint lotion into them. That's one of my favorite ways to de-stress.

Have you ever tried Tazo tea? They sell it at Starbucks, but we have it at our grocery store too. The Passion kind is really, really wonderful...AND caffeine free! You should have a hot cup of that and curl up with a good book or the remote. IF you can find a comfortable position to curl up in, that is! I'm finding that harder and harder.

How about a back rub courtesy of Aaron & some relaxing music, some comfort food and a nap!

How about chick flicks and ice cream? That works for me, even when I'm not pregnant (which is... always)!
