An attorney writes about stuff she'd rather be doing: cooking, eating, wining, dining and traveling.

The past two weeks have been CRAZY. I have been running non-stop, trying to do 8 different things at the same time, overloaded at work, trying to get our new car fixed after an accident, and managing birthdays, parties with friends, family time and of course, trying not to neglect my dear Mr. Foodie.

Today was the first day I have cooked in what feels like forever. We've been eating soup out of the freezer for the last two weeks (not that there is anything wrong with that - that's what it is there for - but our stock is depleted).

After a major Costco trip on Saturday, we have approximately 9 or 10 different kinds of cheese, a freezer full of meat, and lots and lots of produce!

Today I made:
A lightened (both fat/calorie-wise and texture-wise) baked potato soup
A low-fat glazed lemon loaf
A roasted veggie and smoked mozzarella quiche
Spinach stuffed turkey meatloar

This week's (attempted menu):
Sunday: Spinach-stuffed meatloaf with roasted carrots
Monday: Seared tuna tacos with tomato-orange salsa
Tuesday: Veggie and smoked mozzarella quiche with a mixed green salad
Wednesday: General Tsao's tofu with veggies and brown rice
Thursday: BBQ chicken pita pizzas with smoked mozz
Friday: Most likely dinner out

I wondered where you'd been...I haven't had a lot of time to cook, either. WTH? I thought the "busy" time of year was over!
