Hungry like a wolf…

Cheesy title I know, But I thought it was better than screaming to the world; ” I am so Hungry!!! Someone feed me before I start eating the paper on my desk!” Not that I would really go as far as to eat paper, but I did have a teacher tell me that eating chalk was healthy, she then proceeded to eat chalk the first day of our  class, all that calcium ya-know. It doesn’t help that I have been reading food blogs and meal planning most of my morning. I have read about lamb burgers from Rachael Here, and so many others…that one is just sticking to me. I think I will have to try that either this weekend or next week sometime. Yumm!

Here is my current food plan…. Any input would be well appreciated.
