Co op Share

I was on the website from our co op. I am really excited for the things we are going to get this thursday. I could use most of it for thanksgiving dinner.
Green Beans (I plan on making Green bean casserole)
Red Kale
Green Leaf Lettuce
Yukon Gold Potatoes(Gouda cheese mashed potatoes)
Sweet Potatoes (maybe a sweet potato pie)
Garlic (You can never have enough garlic)
Acorn Squash
Green Onions
White Mushrooms (could use for the green bean casserole)
Poultry Bouquet (no clue, but this is the main reason I love my co op I always get new things that I have never tried before.)
Cranberries (cranberry sauce)
Empire Apples (Apple Pie of course)
Persimmons (I have never had these but I have heard of them on a show with Gweneth Paltrow and a chef that were in Spain on the PBS channel.)
Navel Oranges ( these are going to keep Jose out of the kitchen)
And for the extra fruit share that I do we are getting Pineapples, mangos and kiwis. The last pineapples we got were DELICIOUS. They were so perfect we ate the 2 we got in one day.
I wonder if the mashed potatoes will be different since I am using Yukon potatoes instead of Idaho potatoes.Oh well, it will have to work. I have to figure what to do with the Acorn squash. I found this recipe but I am not sure how Jose will react. He might not eat it.
We are having about 15 people at the house for Thanksgiving, and Jose's sister and I are doing all the cooking. Things are coming together just right let hope things stay this way.


Hitting the Gym

So I finally went to the gym. It has been two weeks since I started going. I feel really great. My attitude is better and my energy level is better too. I had a couple of sessions with a personal trainer that were pretty intense. Today I tried spinning and HOLY CRAP was that hard, I was only able to do 30 minutes. They do have kid care but Anthony doesn't want anything to do with it. He went crazy last Friday when I was dropping him off so Jose is going into work late so that I can go to the gym in the morning, which is really great.

Sometimes I wonder if staying home is the right thing to do. I mean what am I supposed to do when he starts going to school and throws a fit. The kid care has fun things to do they also watch all his favorite movies. We have been having a lot of trouble with Anthony lately. I know that we want our kids to be perfect but I have realized yesterday that kids have to be kids. Eventually things will get better but not easier because as they get older things just get a little more complicated with our children.
