Weekend Fun and What Are You Eating This Week?

We had some fun at the park on Saturday. The toddler chased me either with his trike or his running shoes… Smile We also played in the sand a bit (and the evidence is still in the car…).

We also ate a delicious brunch on Saturday that hubby prepared.

Weekend meals are easy as we usually have more time. Plus, once in a while hubby cooks. Well, at least he did this past weekend,  but it’s rare that he cooks… Yes, hubby, I’m talking to you here! Smile I have to say however that you are off to a good start this year… Keep up the good work! Smile   When it comes to weekday meals, things are not quite as easy.

To keep weekday meals “sane,” I plan meals for the week, but I’m very flexible as to when we eat what.  Over the years that’s what I have found works best for us. Here is what I have planned for this week:
  • Baby greens with grilled salmon
  • Baked potatoes with Trader Joe’s Organic Vegetable Chili, Greek yogurt, and a little cheese; broccoli on the side
  • Vegetable curry and naan
  • Brown rice pasta with tomato/basil/almond pesto and a salad
  • Barley soup with carrots, onions, celery, and mushrooms
Questions: So, how about you? Are you a meal planner? If so, what are you eating this week? I'd love some ideas for next week… If you are not a meal planner, how do you decide what to eat every day? 

Be well,
