Ok I feel like all I am posting about is FOOD! I do love to eat. I swear breastfeeding I am even more hungry than when I am pregnant. HA
I Told Tyler last weekend I wanted to make him Jambalaya. His response was NO i hate Jambalaya.
Me- you've never even had it.
Tyler- I know but I dont like it..
Me- what do you think it is.
Tyler- isnt it that stuff they make in Louisiana its almost like a soup thing with shrimp?
Me- umm no thats probably Gumbo that your thinking about.
Tyler- ya your probably right.
Me- Yes Tyler of course I am right ( i am always right ;)  )  jk

A girl that lives by me was telling me how she was going to make Jambalaya, but was waiting until her husband got home to help with the baby since its kind of a process. A process? I thought it just intelled a box of rice that says jambalaya and you add either chicken or sausage?. She was making it solely from scratch. ( you go girl ) I am sure itll be better though.
Anyways so here is what I am doing.
One box of this

Then I am adding some Chicken cut up!
The Mr says there should be a meet at every meal. Otherwise he feels like he doesn't get all that full? Whatever, if I am the one cooking sometimes there is meet and sometimes there isnt haha
Dinner is served most the time around these parts. If I dont make something the Mr will make mac n cheese or grilled cheese or? He can bbq too. But if i want a nice balanced meal I usually do it. I am glad that he understands me though if dinner is served its a big deal for me. HAHA Kids are a little bit demanding. However also if dinner is served, I dont do dishes. I HATE DISHES. Also that means that the house is probably upside down from my ever so spunky and curious toddler who roams while I cook. YAY!!

PS. Weight watcher doers 
1 cup prepared of the rice is 5 points
and 1/2 cup chicken cut up is 3points
MEAL= 7 points
throw in some veggies ( which are free ) good to go

weight watchers

To help make the process of loosing my baby weight, I have joined weight watchers. Some days are better than others but generally its not all that bad. Plus since I am breastfeeding I get double the amount of points I would get if I wasn't. Plus the extra points per week. Its great! Its still work though. My mom has been doing it too and we share our recipes and ideas for snacks. She sent me a healthier version of Empanadas. They're nothing like the authentic awesome fried goodness but theyre still a good "white washed" version of it haha. Here is the recipe.

Ingredients:8 oz. raw extra-lean ground beef  (4% fat or less)
1 cup finely chopped broccoli cole slaw
1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 tsp. chopped garlic
2 tbsp. tomato paste
1 tbsp. finely chopped cilantro
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1 package Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations Seamless Dough Sheet
Optional toppings: salsa, fat-free sour cream

Directions:Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add beef, broccoli slaw, bell pepper, onion, and garlic. Cook and crumble for 6 - 8 minutes, until beef is fully cooked and veggies are slightly soft.

Transfer beef mixture to a large bowl. Add tomato paste, cilantro, cumin, chili powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix thoroughly.

Roll out dough into a large rectangle of even thickness. Cut sheet lengthwise into two even pieces. Cut each piece widthwise into thirds, leaving you with six rectangular pieces of dough. Thinly roll out each rectangle.

Arrange dough pieces with the shorter sides on the right and left. Evenly distribute beef mixture among the centers.

One piece of dough at a time, fold and stretch the lower left corner to meet the upper right corner. Press edges firmly to enclose the beef mixture. (Your empanadas will be super stuffed!) With a fork, press edges to crimp and seal. Carefully transfer to the baking sheet.

Bake until dough is golden brown, about 12 minutes. Enjoy!

 I altered a few things. I didnt have cumin, and i dont know how to do chopped garlic stuff so i use garlic powder (same thing right) , I didnt have cilantro either, and I couldnt find the seamless crescent dough sheets. Therefore I just got the classic crescent rolls with the seems and put two triangles together to make a square, which meant I only got 4 Empanadas but thats ok. I hope you enjoy it if you try it. They're not to bad.

Emmett, you are the sweetest little guy. We have definitely been less strict for sleep training you than we were with Truman but were getting there. I feel like were more sensitive this time I dont know why. I am holding onto your newborn stage as much as I can cause I am slowly seeing it go away. I love letting you fall asleep on my chest its the best. You are cooing and smiling a lot and we love it. We are so excited to get your first belly laugh but that will come soon enough. If we recorded the things we do just to try and get you laugh it would be quite the site. We love you lots. We are working on big brother not overly smothering you with love, its fun!
