Daily Blessings

Throughout this fertility journey, no matter how much life has thrown at me, I will remember my blessings & affirmations each day.

Dinner + CD16


chop em, bag em, season em

I needed a side dish for the rotisserie chicken I bought today. The heat index was 105 today so I did NOT feel like cooking. I was crampy & super fatigued all day. So I decided to keep it simple with some red skinned potato chips. I sliced 3 potatoes thin, threw them in a bag with olive oil, some garlic & herb seasoning, a little salt & parmesan cheese. Yes, that parmesan ends up showing up in every recipe!


roast em, eat em

Heat the oven to a warn 450 degrees and put them in for 15-20 minutes. Let them sit for a minute or 2 OFF of the cookie sheet when they’re done (prevents sticking). This served 2 people comfortably.

TTC update: well the doctors office never called me back! What the heck, I either have uber bad luck or these doctors in my area suck. I happen to believe its a combination of both. Granted, i got another + opk today. It was darker than yesterday… I know what to do… but the office still should have called me back since its a medicated cycle. (Thanks Kate).

*sigh* onward and upward. People have it way worse than me, so no more bellyaching.

Til next time…


A little snack


ooey gooey

Yes, I have a cheese addiction. But this recipe uses Weight Watcher string cheese so its ok! Right?

I used 3 string cheese sticks cut in half & placed them in the freezer until frozen. Then, you dip each stick into flour, egg wash, then a breadcrumb or Panko mixture….then back in the freezer. The breadcrumb coating I used was: Italian breadcrumbs, a little Italian seasoning, & a little Creole seasoning (thanks Alicia).  You could use an Italian breadcrumb + panko mixture with parsley also.

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Line your baking sheet with aluminum foil & spray lightly with a cooking spray.  Once the sticks are frozen (doesn’t take long), place them on the baking sheet and spray the tops lightly with a smidge more spray. Let ’em bake for 4-5, turn them, cook for another 4-5 minutes. Keep an eye on them before they start to ooze cheese (as mine did).

I ate all 6!
