What, me cook?

It's very odd that I've actually been cooking lately. Maybe it's seeing Scott cook so much for his diet, but I think the boys have eaten at home most of their meals (outside of school) for a couple of weeks now.

Yesterday was a very yummy exception. Another MOM (mother of multiples) told us about the new Sci-Tech museum which is currently set up in Willow Bend mall. We love to go to things like that, so we took the boys last night. Turns out it is just a preview of what they will be building in North Dallas or Plano. Yet, they still charge you almost $7 each to get in! There are three themed exhibits: wind, water and earthquakes. The adults have to pay, even though we aren't doing anything except watching the kids. I was very disappointed. We made up for it, though. Afterwards, since we were already in Willow Bend, we went to Todai. I LOVE TODAI! If it weren't *ahem* like $20 per adult to eat, we would go more often. It is a seafood and sushi buffet. You can get lots of different sushi, sashimi, crab legs, shrimp, lots of asian meals (think beef with broccoli, calamari salad, things like that), mussels, clams, hand rolls, all sorts of yummy stuff. There is even a desert bar at the end. Scott, being on Atkins, must have eaten five or six pounds of crab legs, because there wasn't too much else he could eat. The kids both ate a lot of shrimp, clams and noodles. I pigged out on sushi and crab, as well. I justify the price because it would have been about that much if we had gone out for sushi, and there was something for everyone there.

Today, I went to the grocery store and got lots of things to cook for the week. Nothing special, but talapia, hamburger meat, tuna, corn, asparagus, tapioca, summer squash, chicken, potatoes, and more. I had to also get the things that I feel we go out every two DAYS to get in this house: bread, milk, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, juice boxes, lunch meat, cheese and jello.

Ok, I'm making myself hungry. Must go forrage. *grumble*

Kevin's parents are in Europe for business. Since they don't really get along with Kevin (well, actually me) all that much, they were not gonna visit him, just his two brothers, but one brother in Bratislava, Slovakia decided he wanted to do dinner in Vienna with the parents and picked Kevin up from work. Now that was so far beside the point.

They went to my favourite place in Vienna, so Kevin had my favourite dish and a whole medium size Sacher Torte packed up, which he is bringing today! So I am, too, hungry!

What kind of diet is Scott on?

He went on Atkins, and is now in his second week of the induction period. He lost 8 1/2 pounds during the first week. He's doing good, but it needs to stop raining so much so he can walk more in the evenings, and there are so few food choices that he seems to be getting bored. It's only certain kinds of meat (and it can't be processed meats like lunch meat because they add sugar to it), lettuce, cucumber and other salad vegetables, but not tomatoes or other kinds you normally use to 'spice' up a salad. Eggs in the morning, salad for lunch, meat and his 1-2 cups of veggies in the evening, and he's getting REALLY bored. Hopefully, he'll get over the hump and stick with it. I think he wants to do induction for 4-6 weeks to get a good start on losing the weight. He needs to lose between 50-75 pounds.
