Weekly Meals (8/11 - 8/14)

As promised, I'm back with our weekly meals. I'm feeling much better, and things are "back on track." So here are this week's meals:

Tuesday: Vegetable fried rice with brown rice. We'll have green tea flavored seaweed on the side. It really helps to wrap the rice into the seaweed; otherwise, most of the rice ends up anywhere but the toddler's mouth! Plus, the seaweed is really tasty & good for you (I believe seaweed is rich in vitamins as well as minerals, such as iodine, zinc, iron, potassium, copper, magnesium and calcium). That's why after giving birth, many Korean women (and those being a part of Korean families) are fed seaweed soup by the gallons it seems for many weeks... To this day, whenever I eat seaweed soup, I vividly remember the days and weeks after the toddler was born... What sweet memories! :o)

Wednesday: Grilled salmon & roasted veggies.

Thursday: Black bean, fresh salsa & cheese burritos, plus we'll have some chips & fresh salsa on the side.

Friday: It's Salad Friday. I'll make a Pasta Salad with Tomato Basil Almond Pesto, veggies & grilled chicken. This is a new "recipe" that I'll make up as I'm cooking... :o)

Before I leave you, here is a picture of my favorite dish right now: Tomato & Mozzarella & Basil (Caprese) Salad

Questions: Are you eating enough tomatoes? It's the perfect time of the year to eat them!!! :o) What (if any) meals do you have planned?

Be well,
