Weekly Menu & Weekend Fun (September 28)

I had been feeling under the weather all last week, and Friday was the first day I felt better. I was so thankful. It’s so easy to take feeling “normal” for granted!

We started the weekend with an early Korean dinner at Choi’s in Santa Clara. We really enjoy the side dishes (banchan) there. There was a new (to us) egg dish, and the kid couldn’t get enough of it. He also loves the marinated potatoes and the noodles (japchae). I pretty much love all of them!

We ordered a meal for two that comes with all sorts for greens to wrap the meat in. It was more than enough food for the three of us.

Then we headed to the park. Andy and the kid played soccer while I worked on getting some more steps (I had been really low for the day…).

On Saturday, we did a lot of work around the house, the kid had soccer, and then one of his friends came over to play.


On Sunday, we got to go on a great hike.   
I also did some meal prep and got to play with some Spanish olive oil in the kitchen. I’ll post some of my kitchen experiments later in the week.

Here is what’s on the menu for the coming week:

Meal 1: Spaghetti squash with veggie meat sauce and roasted veggies. I cooked a huge pot of veggie meat sauce and roasted some veggies on Sunday. I’ll be eating the leftovers for lunch throughout the week.
Meal 2: Lentil soup with sausage. The leftovers will also be lunches.
Meal 3: Salad with smoked salmon.
Meal 4: Homemade pizza and a salad - yes, this is on the menu a lot lately! But the boys really love it!

Questions: What was the highlight of your weekend? What was the best thing you ate? What are you going to eat this week? 

Be well,
