Foodie Friday

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

Foodie Friday

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 Bytesย 

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

Foodie Friday

I keep telling myself I will get back to posting on here and then I blink and it is Friday. Saying that for the time being I have decided to stick to a few types of posts, weekend recaps, meal planning and marathon training. This probably is a separate post in itself but as the girls get older I have much more I want to do with them and way less time to be sitting at my computer, never mind thinking of post topics etc. So that is the short and sweet version ๐Ÿ˜‰

Onto our week! A couple chiropractor appointments, one for me since I have been getting headaches and one for Avery since her neck was bothering her. Both of us feel much better now! I went to an evening spin class Wednesday night and scored when Lululemon came and gave everyone stainless steel water bottles and a card to redeem a free Swiftly shirt in store!

I picked up cupcakes one night as a treat for us all. In typical toddler/kid fashion the girls both ate all the icing and nothing else…

The girls have been asking to bath in our tub lately, and for some reason baths are much more calm in there…

Matching ponys = heart eyes!

Moving right into meal planning. I felt pretty defeated this week with neither girl wanting to eat anything I made (sigh) but like most things, I know this will change. I just hope it is soon!

Saturday – OUT

Sunday – Turkey Spinach Bake – Budget Bytes

Monday – Pancakes & turkey bacon – Avery’s request

Tuesday – Greek Crock Pot Sloppy Joes – Well Plated

Wednesday – Chicken Fajitas

Thursday – BBQ Chicken Burrito Bowls – Budget Bytes

Friday – Perogies, Sausage & kale Caesar salad

This weekend is a busy one! The girls have a birthday party, Chad and I have a going away party then we have a community event on Sunday plus our long run!

Hope everyone enjoys their weekends!

Foodie Friday

The past few days have felt like March, not January – so no complaints there! We had a busy week, work wise and it seemed every evening one of us was somewhere.

A couple photos of the girls from the week:

They are playing more and more together every day. Avery still has her days where she tells me the sign on her door says “no toddlers allowed” but seeing them play together more is great ๐Ÿ™‚

We loved the Bibimbap from a couple weeks ago which has inspired me to look at new bowl like recipes.

Saturday – Salmon Tacos with Cilantro-Lime Slaw – Willow Bird Baking

Sunday – Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls – The Kitchn

Monday – Pesto Pasta with Tomato and Broccoli – ifoodreal

Tuesday – Turkey burgers & salad

Wednesday –ย BLTS with sweet potato fries

Thursday – Easy Chicken Pho – Forks n Flip Flops

Friday – Veggie Fried Rice – Chef Savy

We don’t have much on the go for this weekend, probably skating and oh yes, a 32km long run ๐Ÿ˜‰

Foodie Friday

Another photo-less week! Our evenings are spent making & eating supper, playing and then the whole bath and bed routine so it is rare the camera comes out.

It was back to freezing temps this week too ๐Ÿ™ Arizona can’t come soon enough for us! This weekend looks better so my plan is to get outside while we can ๐Ÿ™‚

Moving right into meal planning. We have become semi obsessed with bowl type of meals. They are also great for the girls since while they might not eat it all together like us they eat the ingredients of the bowl separate.

Saturday – Thai Chicken Buddha Bowls – Damn Delicious

Sunday – Slow Cooker Coconut Quinoa Curry Bowls – Simply Quinoa

Monday – Gourmet (meaning we add veggies) mac & cheese

Side note – for Chloe we buy the Daiya brand and she loves it!

Tuesday – Greekย Turkey Tacos – Whitney Bond

Wednesday – Homemade pizzas & kale Caesar salad

Thursday – Teriyaki Chicken Casserole – Life in the Lofthouse

Friday – Spicy Tuna Guacamole Bowls – Budget Bytes

Weekend plans include a haircut for Avery, an arena grand opening, skating…and that is about it so far.
