Menu Plan – A Day Late

I have been BUSY this past weekend! Phew! My mom came to visit and we had a blast. She and I had a nice afternoon out that included pedicures, sushi and birthday shopping for Hannah! Later that same night we took the kids out to dinner. We had fully intended on going to BJ’s Brewhouse, but at 6 PM they had an 1.5 hour wait. No, thank you. We chatted about other options close by and settled on Molly Woo’s, which meant more sushi for me! :) I was one happy girl! After our sushi appetizer, Jon and I both tried new menu items to us and were really pleased. I will post a review of them later this week on my Examiner site, so hold tight!

Sunday was spent at the pool. My mom was kind enough to evaluate my horrid swimming form to see if there was any tips she could give me. I swam a lap (50 meters) and she looks at me and says “Yeah, that isn’t very efficient!” LMAO! I couldn’t stop giggling about that statement! I am really glad I found it funny instead of sad and didn’t start crying. I have learned over the past 8 weeks that I have to have a sense of humor about my rehab if I want to make it through a stronger person. After putting some tips in place given to me by a very nice girl on Daily Mile, my mom watched me again and said that I was looking better and I just really need to slow down some & practice. So, practice it is!

Onto the meals! Sunday was a mish mosh of leftovers and such, so I will start with Monday this week.

Monday- Chickpeas, Madagascar pink rice, okra, carrots, jalapenos in a bowl and salad. (Kids still working on leftovers)

Tuesday -Grilled chicken, baked potatoes, asparagus & salad

Wednesday-Salmon, zucchini, quinoa & salad

Thursday -Mexican pizzas, refried beans & salad

Friday -Pizza, broccoli & salad

Saturday -Leftovers

Baked Goods

Chocolate Chip Cake (mix I have to review)
