Healthy Meal Plan: Halfway

After celebrating R's 9th birthday this week, it hit me:  he's halfway to 18, halfway to adulthood, halfway to independence...

Whoa.  I am halfway through my "kid time" parenting of my first child.

True, you never, ever stop "parenting," nor would I want to do so.  I love parenting.  But the kiddo, childhood, growing-up years are halfway behind me. 

So as I ponder reaching the mid-way point of parenting my first child, how about some healthy meals to keep us all growing up healthy?

This week's Healthy Meal Plan:

Meatless Monday:  Spring Risotto, Kale Chips, Blood Oranges

Chicken and Vegetable Tetrazzini, Steamed Broccoli, Kiwi Slices

Thai Vegetarian Wrap, Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Pineapple

Enchilada Rotini, Diced Mango

Chicken Pot Pie, Slow Cooker (**Can also be made chicken-less), Tossed Spinach Salad, Applesauce

Olive Bar Fish, Grits, Green Beans, Pear Slices

Have a great weekend!

Life is sweet,

Guilt free and very healthy. You won't go wrong with these entrees. Healthy need not be boring.

Yeah, I must learn to make some of these too. I'm not exactly on a diet, but it sure is nice to eat something healthy.

These are nice dishes that can be added to our list of menu. We are running a small catering business and I'm open to adding and learning more recipe.

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
