Waffles and a Menu Plan

It is another gorgeous day here in central Ohio. I hope that the weather is nice where you live. Yesterday morning I ran my longest run ever. I ran 18 miles. Phew! That took a long time. Just think, only 8.2 more miles to the marathon distance! I feel pretty good today with the exception of my calves being a little tight.

Another busy week on tap here. My baby boy, Jon, is turning 14 on Saturday! I can’t believe that he will be in high school in the fall. Where did the time go? We will be having a family get together this coming weekend and Jon will be having several friends spend the night on Friday. I fully expect to get no sleep on Friday night with a house full of teenage boys.

Sunday – Grilled chicken breast (on the grill!), quinoa pasta, alfredo sauce, spinach & salad

Monday – Take out or something fast – busy during dinner hour

Tuesday- Fish Tacos/Tacos, refried beans, corn & salad

Wednesday-Spaghetti with marinutta sauce, zucchini & salad

Thursday-Salmon, brown rice, broccoli & salad

Friday-Pizza for the boys

Saturday-Grilled burgers, chicken, corn on the cob, salad & fruit

Baked Goods

Cake or dessert for Jon’s party



Have you ever tried Van’s Gluten-Free Waffles? I have been eating these on & off since I first went gluten-free 4 years ago. Van’s contacted me to see if I wanted to help get the word out about their new packaging. I love the new packaging!

McCormick recalls fajita seasoning due to undeclared wheat & milk.

Barney Butter is an excellent peanut-free alternative.

Whole Foods recalls tuna fin steaks.

I reviewed Rocky Mountain Organic Meats – great grass fed beef & lamb.

Redbridge Beer is being reformulated.

Gluten-free Chatter is on the rise.

Recipe: Aaron’s Chicken Soup with Rice.
