I semi-tackled that giant pile o' laundry that had taken over half my bedroom. I shoulda took a picture for you guys! I dunno if I'm ready for that kinda shame yet though. OH WELL. I say semi-tackled because I essentially turned one giant pile into seven smaller piles. I'm not sure which is worse. I will call it progress because at least half of it's going to Goodwill. Wow, I sure bought a lot of ill-fitting clothes in the last 2 years. Lesson learned? Prolly not.
Next topic: Vegetables.
I am so not a fan of vegetables. I have like weird texture issues. I'm trying to get over it. It took me like 40 minutes to eat a piece of brocolli today. I DON'T GET IT.
Anyway, in my continuing efforts to eat healthier, I decided to do that sneaky mom trick of hiding veggies in my food. I made a big pot of chili to have for lunch all this week. So I bought this little food grinder thingy and chopped up some carrots, an onion, a jalapeno, a bell pepper, and a whole zucchini. I really chopped it up, like...it looked like the size of coffee grounds. Then I stuck all that in the chili and cooked the everliving shit out of it until there was 'nary a vegetable in sight. It actually kinda worked out because it thickened and bulked it up a bit without having to resort to beans (gross!). I was all proud of myself at lunch today because it was actually good. LOOK MOM, I AM EATING VEGETABLES! Weeee!
I also threw some spinach leaves into the salad tonite. I feel like such a grownup!
We had pork kabobs for dinner. They were yum. Here's a visual:
