Foodie Friday

Happy Friday! The longer days this week have been the best – I feel like a new person when it is still light out at 7:30pm and the girls are going to bed!

Playing in our bed before stories 🙂

We also got out for a walk Wednesday night, it looked beautiful out but there was a cold wind! We did no last long since none of us were dressed for it – oops!

I am getting back into workouts with BBG workouts, spin & yoga. Unfortunately I have strained my foot so running is off the table right now – I am sure some rest & TLC and I will be as good a new 😉

Moving onto meal planning!

Saturday –  Chicken Fajitas

Sunday – Thai Peanut Chicken Quinoa Bowls – Iowa Girls Eats

Monday – Penne with Spinach and Chicken Sausage – Savy Saving Couple 

Tuesday – Honey Garlic Chicken Stir-fry – Dinner at the Zoo

Wednesday – Greek turkey burgers & sweet potato fries

Thursday – Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos – Belle of the Kitchen

Friday – Pizza night!

This weekend I finally can get to another Pound class taught by Becky and then my Mom and I had plans to go to Ikea out of town but I think Mother Nature might have other plans for us!

It has been a bit but I am back with a Foodie Friday post 🙂 We got home late Wednesday (midnight) and woke up Thursday to no food – fail on my part! A few hours of grocery shopping later and we are good to go!

Backing up a few days (and more!) to share more from our trip. The last couple of days were spent in the sun and pool. Avery is a fish now and Chloe warmed up to the pool.

Heading to the airport!

I also finally got the photos off my camera, so here are some I had to share:

Okay onto meal planning!

Friday – Chicken Smokies & Quinoa Salad

Saturday – Black Bean burgers & salad

Sunday – Bruschetta Grilled Chicken Bowls – Whitney Bond

Monday – Vegetarian Spaghetti – Family Food on the Table

Tuesday – Slow Cooker African Peanut Stew – The Girl on Bloor

Wednesday –  Vegan Mediterranean Wraps & sweet potato fries – The Stingy Vegan

Thursday – Slow Cooker Pork Banh Mi Rice Bowls – Skinnytaste 

Friday – Chicken Spinach Flatbread – Valentina’s Corner

We don’t have much for weekend plans, spin class, visit with friends and family – and finally no marathon training!

I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day! Avery woke up yesterday morning asking if it “had to be over” – I am like a kid that way and live for holidays!

We got the girls a few goodies, my Mom spoiled them (of course) then did our tradition of pizza and cupcakes for supper, Chad’s (sweet) tweet 😉

Chad nailed it with a simple gift of flowers and Mini Eggs:

Besides that it was a quiet week.

Can I share my excitement that not only is it a long weekend now, but I also have a short meal planning week! Because holidays are here for us! So this week is all about using up our food.

Saturday – Supper at my brother’s

Sunday – Salmon burgers & Greek Salad

Monday – Chicken Fajitas

Tuesday – Vegetable stir-fry

Wednesday – Leftovers

And then we are outta here!

Our weekend includes a spa afternoon for moi, visit with my brother and his girlfriend, fireworks, and of course running 😉

This winter has been a tad much, from some darn cold temps to now what seems to be endless snow I think everyone is more than ready for spring! Or a warm holiday 😉

My winter/snow pout:

Besides hibernating every minute we can this week (darn work getting in the way!), we have kept busy with finishing Avery’s Valentine’s – proud Mom moment that she did all 17 by herself! We made slime Monday night, which has kept the girls busy while I make supper – win!

Since we are getting close to holiday countdown I am starting to try and use up all our fridge food now so that we are not wasting a ton. And I found some new to us recipes for this coming week!

Saturday – Pizza Roll Ups & salad – Budget Bytes

Sunday – Chicken Pot Pie Soup & cornbread muffins – Gimme Some Oven

Monday – Chicken Kale Caesar Wraps & sweet potato fries- Budget Bytes

Tuesday – One Pot Taco Pasta – Damn Delicious 

Wednesday – Our tradition is ordering pizza for Valentine’s Day!

Thursday – Bibimbap – Budget Bytes

Friday – Mini Garden Turkey Meatloaves – Budget Bytes

Weekend plans include a hockey game & birthday party!

Happy February everyone! I like February, it is a short month, Valentine’s Day (I am a sucker for every holiday) and vacation month! Which also means marathon month – yikes!

Monday I took it easy after not feeling well on the weekend, Avery had a morning field trip which I volunteered for since was upset I did not join her on the last one 😉 Tuesday I worked a bit late and last night started to work on Chloe’s birthday party theme etc – two months early but I hate leaving these things!

I have also been making my way through this book. I posted it on my Instagram stories saying the “types” the girls are and had a ton of questions. So here it is! I highly recommend it and she has a website too.

Moving into meal planning – I am so ready for it to be BBQ season! I feel like it makes supper planning a lot easier 🙂 And this is from someone who rarely used to use their BBQ!

Saturday – Salmon Tacos – Willowbird Baking – I know I just made these but they are too good not to repeat stat!

Sunday – Superbowl appetizers!

Monday – One Pot Sausage Pasta – Two Peas & Their Pod

Tuesday – Turkey Taco Burrito Bowls – Together as a Family

Wednesday – Hoisin Stir Fry Bowls with Peanut Sauce – Budget Bytes

Thursday – Greek Chicken Wraps – Budget Bytes 

Friday – OUT

Weekend plans – Our last 30+km run!!! And Superbowl – Chad is having friends over so the girls and I are hiding upstairs and Avery has said we are having a girls only picnic 😉
