My menu planning has become something I'm lucky to do 15 minutes before I start preparing. It's driving me crazy! Maybe it's just the time of year. Maybe it's that I don't yet know what to cook for Joe. Maybe it's the stress of his illness. I don't know. He goes in on Thursday for a heart cath/angiogram. Depending on what they find, he may get a stint or angioplasty. We will have to wait until it's over to know. Needless to say, our stress levels are high.
I'm continuing to look for sites with heart-healthy recipes so I can get back into my weekly menu planning. Until then, I'll take it one day at a time...

Last night, I fixed Grilled Orange Chicken Fingers, butternut squash, brown rice, and spinach salad. Everything was yummy and the kids asked for seconds!
Tonight, Joe is eating left-overs and the kids and I are having Zesty Corn Quesadillas and fresh veggies with ranch.
