It is going to be a busy week and I have not had too much time to plan, but I do know I have a few things I must make, and they will probably be quick and easy.
First off, I have to make a dish for my husband’s work pot luck – Irish Cheddar Potato Bites Update: These turned out alright and were fairly easy. I will make these again.
I’d like to give these treats a whirl – Nibby Buckwheat Butter Cookies
Monday – On the road.
Tuesday – Breakfast for dinner. Eggs, Quinoa Cakes (which were inspired by my friend Lisa’s meal planning on her blog), Chicken Sausage. We’ll get our greens in at lunch! I plan on going to Zumba this evening so it will have to be a quick and easy dinner to make. Update: Quinoa pancakes were fun and good, Trader Joe’s Chicken Sausage (Jalapeno) was tasty, and eggs are always delicious. I made a coconut water-cabbage-kale-mango-pineapple smoothie in the Vita Mix and that was so refreshing! P.S. You don’t taste the cabbage, so the kale and pineapple shined through with a really light and cooling flavor.
Wednesday – Leftovers and salads.
I may make this Chickpea Salad with Mango since I have a mango I should use, I do not recall if there are chickpeas in the cupboard, so if not I will just use up the mango in a smoothie. On Wednesday evenings I volunteer at Cooking Matters in Detroit, so Bill is left for eating what he can find in the fridge.
St. Patricks Day, maybe I’ll make some Creamy Broccoli Soup with some Corned Beef & Cabbage – still looking for a recipe to use. Zumba again – this might have to be a crock pot dinner. New plan: Grilled Pork Chops and Garlic Mashed Cauliflower. These are foods I already have in my freezer/fridge and want to use up versus buying new ingredients for a meal.
Probably dining out with friends (and bowling) – It’s my birthday!! Actual: Dinner party at friends house, I’ll be bringing a yummy spinach salad (will post recipe).
Saturday – Friends will be over for a Pampered Chef party, so we’ll have lots of snacks and homemade pizzas using the Clean Eating Whole Wheat Crust.
Sunday – Hopefully
leftovers Mangia’s and salad!
Work outs planned: I will Zumba a few times this week with my girlfriend, any other evenings I have energy I hope to do some challenging work outs from BodyRock in the comfort of my own living room!
