Good Monday Morning!

A little late on the menu plan – better late than never.  Yesterday I felt like I was getting sick.  My throat was a bit scratchy & sore, my tummy was blah and I just wanted to go back to bed and no, I didn’t drink too much wine the night before.  Hannah has had a sore throat/cold for over a week, so I thought I was getting what she had.  Today I seem to feel better, but haven’t eaten anything yet.  I did go to the gym and felt great, so I hope the trend continues.  I hate being sick, but will take a cold/sore throat over a stomach/GI virus any day. 

Hockey tryouts were this past weekend, so this week will be crazy with hockey practices, gymnastics and my yoga class.  Maybe Jon getting his driver’s license won’t be so bad after all?  Now is the time for me to really focus on meal planning, prepping in advance & using my crockpot.

Monday – Grilled chicken breast & broccoli stuffed baked potatoes & salad.  (I found some monster baking potatoes at Meijer yesterday and can’t wait to use them!)

Tuesday – Mexican pizzas (refried beans + turkey taco meat on a toasted corn tortilla), corn & salad.  I like to top mine with tomatoes, lettuce & avocado.

Wednesday – BBQ pulled pork (crock pot), sweet potato puffs, green beans & salad

Thursday – Pumpkin pancakes, turkey bacon & fruit

Friday – MYOP with Udi’s gluten-free crust and salad

Saturday – Take out


Baking

I am back on a baking kick.  I made pumpkin brownies & dark chocolate pumpkin bread yesterday, despite not feeling well.  I promised Jon that I would, so being the nice mom that I am, I made his goodies.  I hope to continue that trend this week, experimenting with some fun recipes!  I plan on sharing the super easy method for the pumpkin brownies this week! 

Also coming up this week – another fun giveaway!  If you like crunchy things, this giveaway is for you!
