If you are into punctuation and the art of editing your writing? I am getting all English teachery over at The Red Dress Club today. Take a read.
First of all, I am not unaware of the hullabaloo this article has created all over the internet.
It makes me crabby that someone cares more about overweight people kissing on TV than the fact that they have everyone constantly making fat jokes about it all.
Something is wrong there, people.
Where were all these grossed out people when Rosanne was getting frisky with Dan 20 years ago?
Oh wait, people liked it because it was REAL.
Anyway, I am a REAL person and I am overweight at 191 pounds (yes, I went up a pound. I blame the Halloween candy). I am 5’7″ (roughly) and 191 pounds. That is way overweight.
And you know what? To my knowledge? No one has ever gagged or thrown up in their mouth when Cort and I smootch on each other. I mean, if I have ever offended someone by holding my husband’s hand or kissing him, well, then…TOO BAD!
My point is that people who crab about fat people? Need to shut up. That is my McFatty lecture for the day. There is more that I could add, but really? I don’t think it needs to be said.
Publicly bashing fat people for grossing you out? is hurtful. Just don’t look.
And now? Back to me (because that is what it is really about yes?)
So I mentioned that I gained a pound. I blame this:
I am not even going to post on here in all of public how many bags of candy we went through..BY. OURSELVES.
And I am just thanking my McFatty stars that i only gained a pound.
Anyway, this week while I was battling with myself not to eat yet another “fun sized” treat, my friend “The Rocky Mountain Mama” informed me that she does a Meal Planning Monday. I thought this fit pretty well with McFatty Monday since besides telling you all what I weigh, I am struggling to make better food choices.
For us, meal-planning starts on Sunday–before Cort goes and gets the groceries for the week.
This week we decided on baked chicken with rice (recipe to follow). Then I make the list and dig through my coupon holder to match up with what we are buying. Before finalizing the list, I flip through the Meijer sales flier for the week to see if they have anything listed on sale that we could stock up on or use in lunches.
After all that, I add anything else we need in the house like TP or dish soap.
Lastly we think about what we will eat on the nights we are apart. I usually eat PB sandwiches on wheat bread.
And that is it. Cort takes a look at the list to make sure he knows what I am talking about, then he gathers up the Meijer reusable bags and the coupons and he is gone for an hour.
This week’s dinner:
Baked Chicken with Rice
2 cups of minute rice (I use brown)
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 can of cream of celery soup
1 can of golden mushroom soup
1 package of dried onion soup (I use Lipton)
1.5 cans of water
**mix above together and spread in a greased 9×13 glass baking dish
**Put chicken (can be in bone, but I use 3 or 4 skinless breasts) on top
Bake for about 2 hours at 350 degrees
I like this recipe because we will have leftovers that I can take in my lunch.
We also usually have a veggie of some sort with this. This week we are having corn.
So there you have it! Hopefully I can make better choices now that the candy is almost gone from our house!
