Mmm, Salad!

Since my pregnancy nausea began (morning sickness just isn't an adequate description), Mike has done all of the grocery shopping and much of the meal preparation for himself, the boys and Amanda. Bagged cereal, Jell-O, Cheddar Wurst, Ramen Noodles, Baked Beans and Clam Chowder are all new foods for Amanda. Amanda has happily eaten and enjoyed these new foods with her daddy, but there's really nothing like sharing a salad with mom! She even wants to drink the vinegar and olive oil dressing that's left at the bottom!
This is really the closest thing to a meal that I have eaten. I have two of these salads a day. Something about the oil and vinegar makes them very easy to eat. The rest of the time I just have small snacks of fruit, yogurt and oats, cheese, salmon or sweet potatoes. Potato chips and Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese Spread have been good, too.
This salad consists of cheddar cheese, lunch meat, tomatoes, bagged lettuce with carrots and red cabbage, olive oil and vinegar. Sometimes I use ground hamburger or cooked chicken instead of lunch meat. Amanda used to pick out the red cabbage but now she eats it, too.
