New Dinner Exchange Club

So I am now participating in a Dinner exchange club. This is where families get together and exchange dinners. So depending upon how many families participate each month will determine how many meals you make and will get. This is the first month that I am participating and there are a total of 8 families (including me). So I have to make seven dinners of the same thing to exchange...I will get 7 different meals out of this.

The rules are simple:
1) Must be child friendly (since most have children under age 7 and are learning to eat)
2) Must be high quality and mostly healthy...aka no fatty meats...get the good stuff.
3) No gross green olives, raisins, and cinnamon. (What?!?!)
4) Not too, salty, pepper, etc.
5) Must be able to be frozen and reheated easily.

I am excited about this...hopefully I will get some new recipes out of this and quit eating the same old thing during the week.

Post Op Recovery's all fixed. I have a new ACL out of my hamstring tendon. Let the healing begin.

So I had the surgery on 21 Friday...and just slept most of the day. Saturday and Sunday were interesting...I was taking pain medication about every 4 hours. I woke up on Saturday night in tears...oh yeah the knee was awake!!!

Monday and Tuesday weren't too bad...I am now down to 2 pain pills a in the morning and one at night. Although I totally over did it on Tuesday and paid for it last night.

Today is the first meeting with the Physical Terrorist. We will see how I feel this afternoon.
