The last three weeks have been a little crazy and as a result, I have not been meal planning (or blogging). The last time I attempted was the week of March 3rd and that weeks meals were very different than planned. Instead of cooking all the planned meals, I only did two and then we tackled the leftovers and miscellaneous stuff in the fridge the rest of the week. One thing I am learning during this meal planning process is that we end up having a lot more leftovers than we can keep up with eating 🙂 So for the next few weeks, I am going to plan only 3 meals (maybe 3 for sure and have one back-up in mind) and see how that goes.
Weekly Meals: March 24th – March 30th
Sunday: Out (Brier Pizza with the folks)
Monday: Sweet Kale Salad (salad mix from Costco)
Tuesday: Crock-pot Sesame Honey Chicken (from Skinnytaste) with Cauliflower “Rice”
Thursday: Crock-pot Pork and Green Chili Stew (from Skinnytaste)
Friday: Out / Leftovers (or back-up: Greek Style Shrimp with Feta (from Dinner: A Love Story Cookbook))
Saturday: Out – Cactus (The Pieper’s are in town so we have a big dinner with long time family friends that evening)
Once again I have fallen behind on posting meals and updates 🙂 Here are a few things that have been going on the last two weekends:
Two weekends ago, the hubby and I spent 3 nights in Vegas. We had a great time! It was during the Pac 12 tournament so we went to see the Huskies play. The weather was also AWESOME so we got in some quality pool time. We stayed at the MGM Signature. Overall I liked the hotel but it was a little bit of a walk to get to the Casino of MGM and to the Strip. A few co-workers were also there so we went out with them a bit. And, on our last day, Josh and Kylin came down so we spent the day exploring with them!
This past weekend, on Friday we had a few friends over for games to celebrate our friend Aur’s birthday. It was a great evening. Played a game kinda like Apples to Apples (was called cards against humanity) and it was hilarious! Then on Saturday the Mr. golfed while I did a bunch of errands and that evening we had a date. We went to dinner at Fonte and then to the symphony. Was a nice evening. Sadly, I did doze off during the symphony…hard not too…it is so relaxing. On Sunday, we went to church and then met my parents for wine tasting and lunch. Wine tasting went longer than planned, so we ended up also doing dinner with them 🙂
Not much else new that I can think of! I promise to share a recipe soon. I do have a few good ones that I really need to share with you! Hope you are well!
