Plans for Saturday

My partner is working 9-6, so after I take her to work, I'll come home and have breakfast.

I'm going to have oatmeal, with Grape-nuts added, and I'm going to try it with some added cinnamon and a little bit of real maple syrup.

I'll do my workout sometime in the morning.

Cooking tomorrow, I'm going to make hummus from scratch for the first time. Dinner will be a quinoa pilaf.

I may try to make mac & cheese again. I have two recipes, one from frugal veggie mama and another one.

My partner is enjoying the healthier eating. And we are saving money, even though we are actually buying some pricier stuff, like ketchup without corn syrup, and Earth Balance margarine. But home cooking is cheaper, even if an ingredient is slightly more money.

I made a pasta chili tonight from a McDougall cookbook, slightly modified. I used a can of Health Valley veggie chili, 8 ou tomato sauce, garlic and onion powder, 1/2 can of pinto beans and about a half cup of Pace Picante Mild. Mixed up with pasta and had some bread on the side.
