Meal Planning This Week

Hey there!

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend.  I woke up with a sore throat yesterday morning. Not exactly how I wanted to kick off my long run. I tried blaming the sore throat on my house being dry but it lingered all day. Fingers crossed it doesn’t develop into anything too severe.

The run went really well despite being greeted with a chilly 13 degrees. Of course, the hourly forecast said it was going to be 20. There’s a huge difference between 13 and 20 degrees! I wasn’t too cold until the last couple of miles. My butt and hamstrings were blocks of ice. My nose and upper lip were stinging for some reason too. Weird.

Today’s run was an easy pace recovery run before heading off to the mountain for a day of snowboarding and skiing.  It’s the last day of the kids group lessons. It’s a great program but I’ll be happy when we have a boring, no plan weekend to just hang out at home.

It’s Sunday so it’s meal planning day.  It’s also Super Bowl Sunday so we’ll be gearing up for the big game as soon as we come home from the mountain. I’m notorious for falling asleep during the Super Bowl unless it’s a really good game. There’s nothing worse than a big game that is completely scoreless the first half or is totally one sided. This is a THE big game. You want a show. Btw – Go Pats!

Sunday: Baked Broccoli Slaw Egg Rolls + other finger foods for the game

Monday: Salmon + Roasted Asparagus

Tuesday: Taco Tuesday – build your own taco bar

Wednesday: Easy Chicken Lo Mein

Thursday: Butternut Squash Apple Soup + Grilled Cheese

Friday: Pizza Night

Saturday: Clean out the fridge!

What’s for dinner at your house this week?

Who’s going to win the Super Bowl?

  1. We have a one year old birthday party this afternoon before the game so I’m hoping that will be sufficient and we’ll just finger food/snack our way through dinner. I never feel like cooking on the weekends!

  2. I finally made those egg rolls last night (after what I feel like years of having them pinned on pinterest) I added some chicken in as I had some leftover in the fridge. Loved them! My picky (but vegetable eating) 3.5 year old really liked them! My “I love everything” 1.5 year old was not a fan of the “roll” but took it apart and ate the inside. Love it when everyone can enjoy a recipe and I don’t have to pick anything out for the picky one. Thanks!

    I think next time I will try it with a sweet heat type of sauce as my husband isn’t the biggest teriyaki fan and it came out way too salty ( I was using low sodium soy sauce but I only had like 1/4 cup and used a teriyaki marinade for the other 1/4 cup and I think that is what did it.) I’m thinking a honey sriracha type sauce.
