Foodie Friday

So this week was smokey… we saw blue skies Monday and then they were gone! It has put me in a deary mood and hoping we see those blue skies soon before summer is over.

Monday night playground fun:

The girls wanted to pose with their apple juice after work one day – kids are weird šŸ˜‰

Onto meal plans for the next week:

Saturday –Ā Damn DeliciousĀ Grilled chicken & Whole Food’s California Quinoa Salad –

Sunday – Family supper

Monday – The Best Turkey Burgers (Live Fit Girls) & Best Kale Summer Salad – The Balanced Berry

Tuesday – Ginger Chicken Stir-fry

Wednesday – Salmon Tacos with Cilantro Lime Slaw – Willowbird Baking

Weekend plans depending a lot on this smoke! I would like to be outside in the sun but not so much with smoke, we have Chad’s Grandma’s 90th birthday celebration as well šŸ™‚

Happy August! Since it was a quiet week (home wise, work was crazy) I will just share a few phone from the week:

Evening park trips:

This kid kills me:

Most nights by goal is to be done everything by 8:30pm so I can get an hour of R&R before bed. But summer seems to be busier so that has been pushed back and back, which is also why posts are a struggle!

Anyways, food time!

Saturday –Ā Fish Tacos with mango salsa

Sunday –Ā Smokies & Spinach Chickpea and Quinoa Salad – Budget Bytes

Monday – Turkey Burgers & Summer Kale & Blueberry Salad – Coley Cooks

Tuesday – Peanut Tofu Buddha BowlsĀ  – Delish KnowledgeĀ

And it is another long weekend! I have today off as well and we have a lot planned this weekend, Calaway Park, the beach, and a car show.

Enjoy your long weekends!


Foodie Friday

One day I might get back to posting more than twice a week but these summer days are flying by at record speed and honestly sitting down even twice a week at the computer to do these posts is a struggle (in the best way).

We had an off week, Avery had a (failed) dentist appointment, the girls fought (too much) and most nights I was done by 8pm! So in true Mom fashion I took today off to spend some quality time with them šŸ˜‰

Nightly wrestling matches:

Avery and I went for pedicures (manicure for her too):

How I found Avery after my run one night, she fell asleep doing workbooks.

Moving straight into meal planning! Usually I start to crave fall meals by mid summer but I am really loving salads, the BBQ and easy meals right now.

Saturday – OUT

Sunday – Black Bean burgers &Ā Chopped Kale Greek Salad – Gimme Some Oven

Monday – Turkey Taco Burrito Bowls – Together as a Family

Tuesday – Slow Cooker Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken – Budget Bytes

Wednesday – Penne with Bursted Cherry Tomato Sauce – Calluna NutritionĀ 

ThursdayHoney Lime Salmon, roasted broccoli and garlic toast

Foodie Friday

l evening Being that it is fair week here we are getting our share of BBQs, pancakes and treats! I actually semi think next summer this is the week for holidays so we can partake in more šŸ˜‰

We did go to the parade and Chloe LOVED it! She danced, waved and loved all the animals. Avery was indifferent – as usual.


She was not in a photo mood:

It was hot this week so we also have had our share of ice cream after supper – coconut ice cream is our favourite:

To balance it out (and a busy work week) I got in a couple beautiful evening runs:

And got my package for the Lululemon 10km this weekend!

With meal planning I have been trying to simplify meals these days, or have favourites (like tacos) that we have weekly. Makes everything easier!
