What's for Dinner Moms?

I loved Salisbury Steaks growing up. We would get the TV dinners (remember when they were called that?) with the metal three tray compartments. I would either get Fried Chicken or Salisbury Steak with mashed potatoes in one little compartment and corn in the other. They were a great treat growing up.

I don’t know why I have never thought of making them before.

The first week, as I expected, was the hardest one. Cravings weren’t the most difficult part. The biggest challenge for me was to change my habits. For example, before sugar detox, I used to stop at the local grocery store after my training session at gym to buy some post-workout snacks.

I’m making a simple potato soup today. From scratch. It’s my day off and the kids are at school.

A couple more hours before I add milk and get the texture creamy. Then I’ll add cheese and bacon bits on top. Salt and garlic powder if you like.
