What I Ate this Week

Hi all! I’ve been trying to get in big salads for lunches lately.  For me it’s a good way to be sure I at least get one veggie heavy meal in for the day.  Lately dinners tend to be more focused on delicious food rather than veggies.

Dinners

Monday: King Ranch Chicken + salad.  Andrew’s mom makes the most delicious King Ranch Chicken.  Mine wasn’t exactly the most delicious, but there was cheese so it can’t really be bad.  I based mine off this Eating Well recipe. I used greek yogurt for the sour cream and left off the black olives.  Andrew and I both agreed it was a little too Mexican tasting for King Ranch Chicken.  Next time I’ll leave out the chili powder.

Tuesday: Out to eat at Heights General Store for a Culinary Professionals Meeting.  The menu was already planned for us and it was delicious.  We started off with salads.  Then the main course was crispy fried chicken + delicious green beans + creamy mac n’ cheese.  I really loved this restaurant…food, atmosphere and owner.  Can’t wait to go back and try some of the other dishes.

Wednesday: Cauliflower soup + crispy chickpeas.  It looks good, huh?  It was so gross.  I can’t even believe Andrew and I kept eating it.  We did serve it with this cornbread…it was the one redeeming factor in the meal.

workout

1000 rep workout via Peanut Butter Fingers.  Love this workout.  Always takes me just over an hour to finish it and my whole body is always shaky.

And a Maggie picture because I’m in love.  She’s thinking, “don’t leave us for Brazil, Dad.”  Andrew is out of the country for work.  I’ve been filling my schedule with time with friends and sisters to help from getting too lonely.  Right now my sisters are over and we’re watching She’s the Man (our movie)…on a work night.  It’s gonna be an early morning.  Totally worth it.
