Still in the 2ww

I'm keeping pretty busy with work, family, yoga and ICLW. So far, however, I have definitely found myself visiting ttc websites and thinking that perhaps I was a little bit hungrier than usual, or sleepier. My face started breaking out on Monday morning after almost three weeks of nearly perfect skin, so we can assume that's hormonal, but there's no real meaning beyond that.

As summer comes to a close and autumn and winter days are just around the corner it is time to dust off my baking skills and think about cooking too. This summer I've been a lazy cook. We've grilled or had salads or pasta or homemade pizza with an occasional stir fry thrown in whenever we've been home since the end of June! I want to try some new things and learn new cooking skills in the next few months. Any favorite recipes or menu planning ideas you care to share?

We plan a menu for the week and shop off of that, but I'm feeling a little bored with our standard go-to meals.


  1. I just made something last night that was SO good and really simple. I'll email you the recipe. I'm sure I can find more, if you want them. I've done a lot of experimenting in the past few months. Most have them have gotten rave reviews, too!

  2. Glad you found something to keep you a little distracted in this 2ww, looking for recipes and cooking should be fun, good luck!

  3. I'd love it if you emailed me the recipe! Thanks!

  4. I hope this is your last 2ww for a long time!

    In the fall, I love to make this wonderful sausage, sweet potato and lentil soup. I found the recipe on http://kalynskitchen.blogspot.com/. I have to make a double batch each time because Hubby and I love it so much we eat it all up!

  5. don't you have those "symptoms" that we can make ourselves see in everything? It is enough to drive a person crazy.

  6. I cant wait to be able to cook again... I miss it!

  7. distractions are the worst part of the 2ww ... good luck keeping yourself occupied :)

    My husband is going to culinary school and he's started a blog - I have to nag him to put something in it though. LOL..

    Happy ICLW :)
