Foodie Friday

How did Friday sneak up on us?! I had planned to do a blog post this week and that never happened, nor did photos of our week. One day I will find my blogging mojo again!

We had a great week, had my Mom over one night, friends another night I had book club after a mini hiatus. Now to start reading again too ­čśë

I am making an effort to have more veggie based meals these days, some even vegan. I actually love tofu (Avery does too) so just need to get down the right cooking method for it.

Saturday – Smokies & Asparagus and Potato Salad – Oh She Glows

Sunday – Spicy Baked Peanut Butter Tofu – Choosing Chia

Monday– Black bean burgers (Costco) & The Best Summer Kale Salad – The Balanced Berry

Tuesday – Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos – Belle of the Kitchen

Wednesday – One Pot Veggie Pasta – Family Food on the Table

Thursday – The Best Shrimp Fried Rice – Gimme Some Oven

Friday – Summer Chicken Wraps & sweet potato fries – Iowa Girl Eats

Weekend plans include Avery’s first gymnastic class and hopefully lots of outside time finally!

Apparently this week was a blur – I don’t even have photos from the week! I had a couple early work mornings, and while I am up at the same time leaving earlier throws me right off. Besides that it was a gloomy week so we did not get out for our evening walk at all.

With that I will just get into meal planning!

Saturday – Spicy Shrimp Burrito Bowls – Two Sisters Kitchens

Sunday – Spicy Black Bean Taquitos – Hot for Food cookbook

Monday – Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies – Damn Delicious┬á

Tuesday – Chicken Smokies & Summer Chickpea Salad – How Sweet It Is

Wednesday – Bahn Mi Rice Bowls – Skinny Taste

Thursday – Pancakes & turkey bacon

Friday – Vegan Pulled Mushroom Sandwiches & salad – Hot for Food

Weekend plans include visits with family, a girls supper with some friends and hopefully sunshines so we can get outside!

Short work weeks are the best! Well unless you have a sick kid! Miss. C is not feeling great – bad timing with it being her birthday! Poor kid.

Monday we a ‘fun’ day – I took C to the Dr after her breathing was a tad off, while there she ran into the counter and cut the corner of her eye. If it had been a millimeter over she would have needed stitches – OY. Then we ran to Chapters to grab a cookbook I wanted and she was trying to get a toy, it fell hit her in the face and she got a bleeding nose. So it was a Monday!

We did get out for coffee unharmed!

Early before all the mishaps we spent the time morning colouring and baking:

We had a little celebration Wednesday for her, she tried to grab the lit candle:

And took Chloe out for the supper of her choice, Subway!

I am excited for the meal plan this week thanks to my new cookbook – Vegan Comfort Classics!

Saturday – Black Bean burgers (Costco)

Sunday – Cheesy Pesto Bread Twists & See Food Chowder – Vegan Comfort Classics

Monday – One Pot Sausage and Sun Dried Tomato Pasta – Budget Bytes

Tuesday – Spicy Peanut Noodles – Vegan Comfort Classics

Wednesday – Turkey bacon BLTs & sweet potato fries

Thursday – Easy Shrimp & Broccoli Stir Fry – Damn Delicious┬á

Friday –┬áBlackened Shrimp Tacos – Budget Bytes

This weekend we are having a party for Chloe and that is it – I have been lacking motivation lately with this weather – hopefully spring finds us soon!

Yay for short work weeks! This week we did get out one night for some bike riding and the girls found the first bug of the year – a fly – they were amazed ­čśë

I made a stop at my favourite cupcake place this week & bought my co-workers cupcakes – lucky for Chad and the girls there were some leftover.

I also had a weak childhood memory moment and bought a Lite-Brite online. I said I was saving it as a gift for a birthday or Christmas but I could not resist opening it with Avery last night:

Anyone else ready for BBQ season? I know we are! We are warm weather BBQ’ers so onto another non-BBQ week of meal plans:

Saturday – Easter dinner

Sunday – Greek Turkey Tacos – Whitney Bond

Monday – Tuscan Grilled Chicken & quinoa – Easy Family Recipes

Tuesday – One Pot Ratatouille Spaghetti – Wallflower Kitchen

Wednesday – Out for C’s birthday

Thursday – Veggie Burrito Bowls

Friday – Pizza

Weekend plans! An Easter dinner, Easter brunch, of course the whole egg hunt thing –> my favourite part, a spin class and we will see what Mother Nature brings to plan the rest! Wishing everyone a happy Easter!

Now that spring is officially here (n theory!) I made it my goal that we get out for a walk one evening a week – easier said than done. I am telling you all getting supper on the table by 6pm is a rush let alone getting a 4 year old to eat sid supper in under 45 minutes –> slowest eater ever these days. But alas we have done it two weeks in a row.

Avery loves climbing the snow pile from the skating rink:

Chloe went through stroller withdrawals this winter and has been crying to go in the stroller so she just wanted to chill there:

We are also working on our morning routine – we have always done pretty good but Avery has decided in the morning she wants to wear nothing – though the kid has a packed closet and dresser – so we have started to agree on and set on clothes the night before. Which means time to even play before we go!

I started back on 21 Day Fix workouts this week, I love them but not sure how good jump squats are for my foot. I am hoping to attempt a run soon (its been a month since I ran!) and see how my foot it is, I have 5 weeks to get it better so if it is still bothering me I will have to go see someone. And of course I got in a couple spin classes and a yoga class.

Switching gears to meal planning.

Saturday – Black bean burgers (Costco!) & salad

Sunday – Bibimbap – Budget Bytes

Monday – Slow Cooker Coconut Curry Lentils – Budget Bytes

Tuesday – Chicken & Vegetable Stir Fry – Cooking Classy

Wednesday – BBQ Pork Tacos – Stuck on Sweet

Thursday – Tuna Wraps & sweet potato fries

Friday – Hoisin Stir Fry Bowls – Budget Bytes┬á

Weekend plans, maybe a Easter egg hunt at Chad’s work, Ikea (if the weather cooperates), a night out with some friends then a quiet Sunday at home cleaning and baking ­čÖé
