What’s for Dinner? {Week of September 25}

Wondering What's for Dinner Here's 7 days of meal ideas for the whole family to enjoy.  happyfitmama.com

Saturday I did my last long run before next weekend’s Leaf Peepers Half Marathon. I was thinking about it while on the run and starting to get anxious. It’s been two years since I ran a half. I’m not sure how to do that anymore! Scratch that – I’m not sure how to race anymore since it’s been so long. I’m trying to let go of expectations. I’m nowhere near half marathon racing shape and my training plan…well, it hasn’t been completely stellar. BUT, I will put in a solid effort AND I will have fun. Especially since it will cap off the Rise.Run.Retreat weekend. I can’t believe that in four days, I’ll be in Vermont with the girls. So flippin’ excited!

As luck would have it, I received a copy of the new Run Fast. Eat Slow. cookbook on Friday. Guess what’s for dinner this week? If you guessed recipes from the book, you would be absolutely freakin’ right. Every single recipe is drool worthy.


How did Shalane and Elyse know exactly what I liked to eat?

If the recipes are anything like the Superhero Muffins(favorite of the kids and I!), than this cookbook will become a weekly staple.

Since I’ll be gone Thursday – Sunday, Ron and the kids will be on their own for meals. I don’t even bother planning or leaving them dishes that can be reheated while I’m gone. If I know Ron, he’s going to wing every single night. And I’m sure there will be probably be a couple (or more) of dinners out.

What’s for Dinner this week?

Sunday: Wild Salmon Sweet Potato Cakes + Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Monday: Soba Noodle Salad with Runner’s High Peanut Sauce

Tuesday: Roasted Chicken with Root Lovers’ Winter Salad

Wednesday: High-Altitude Bison Meatballs with Simple Marinara (My son requested this after seeing the picture. Fingers crossed it’s a winner!)

Thursday: Rise.Run.Retreat

Friday: Rise.Run.Retreat

Saturday: Rise.Run.Retreat

Have you tried any recipes from Run Fast. Eat Slow?

  1. Yum!! Soba noodles with peanut sauce sounds awesome.. they all sound so good!

    Have an AMAZING time this week!! I think your body will remember exactly how to race, and you’ll have a blast. I’ll be following along!

  2. I’m looking forward to trying this cookbook. I loved Meals on the Run from Runner’s World and found nearly every recipe to be good in there. Hoping this is the same. 🙂

    I’m also excited to see you this weekend and cheer you on during the half. The way you run the race is the only right way 🙂 I’m so glad you have healed so much in the past two years! See you soon!
