    My shopping cart looks pristine except for the occasional ice cream, cheese and booze.

    But that's only because we eat out at restaurants like 80% of the time.

    No judgement from me, either. If I worked outside of my home, I wouldn't be able to cook the way I do. By the time I would pick my kid up at daycare and get home to cook, it would be past 7:00. I'd rather have that time with my daughter, not chopping and cooking.

    Oh, I should have added frozen pizza to my list. My kid loves the little frozen pizza from Trader Joe's.

    Cigarettes and coffee. Breakfast of champions. Ahhh. I still miss it.

    i buy loads of fennel too, especially in fall and winter. i find it funny that a lot of places here mislabel it as anise.

    My mother is an aniseed addict and will eat anything that tastes even close, including fennel. I make a great carb free "mash" of fennel, cauliflower and celery blitzed in the blender. Perfect topping for a cottage pie.

    What's weird is I hate most everything anise flavored. Liquor, licorice, etc. I love fennel.

    i like anise but don't love it. but i LOVE fennel. it's one of my favourite veggies. and fennel and salmon is one of my favourite food combos.
    plus you can do so much with it. it's great raw in salads, steamed, roasted, stir-fried, puréed... the possibilities are endless.

    Yes, it's really tasty, especially raw in salads. I also like it caramelized. And hubby hates it, so more for me.

    I cook dinner *almost* every night. I love to cook, and even though I work full time and have the munchkin, I seem to be pretty good at time management. I do prep some things the night before, and a lot of what I cook is healthy, but very quick and easy. Also, I'll make things like meatloaf or lasagna on the weekends and make two of each so I can freeze them and pull them out as needed. I take advantage of my oven's programmable feature so that the lasagna is ready when we get home, and it's ready to eat.

    This week we had lasagna on monday, chicken paprikash on tuesday (chicken pieces stewed with peppers, onions, tomatoes and paprika, served over noodles with a dollop of sour cream. Cucumber salad on side. prep time - 10 min). Leftovers on Wednesday. Tonight we're having falafel, tzatziki and greek salad. I made the falafel "dough" last night, because I find it holds together better when it's sat for awhile, and set the yogurt to drain this morning for the tzatiki. I'll probably spend less than 30 minutes in the kitchen and dinner will be ready. My daughter also likes to help, so it is a bonding time for us.

    We don't drink pop. I buy not from concentrate orange juice, and we have a soda stream, so we drink 1/3 oj and 2/3 soda water. Lots of milk, yogurt, fresh fruit and veggies. Shit tons of bananas.

    do you mix the concentrate with water or are you just mixing the concentrate itself?

    For my tzatziki, I grate the cucumber with the peel and manually wring the excess water off it before putting it in the yoghurt. I also put a little vinegar in the mix and dill. It's not tzatziki without dill! In some recipes they add olive oil in it but I think it's fine without too if you want to make it lighter.
