Foodie Friday

Happy Friday! Earlier this week I said that I have no idea how we all have got away without being sick in a year and guess what? I think I am coming down with a cold – I should have known better!

Avery told us this week she no longer wants to eat meat. Which is interesting and fine but also requires some more creativity! And she is a kid so who knows if it will last 😉

Saturday – One Pot Creamy Garlic Pasta – Yup, its Vegan

Sunday – Grey Cup appetizers

Monday – Sweet and Sour Chickpeas, Peppers and Broccoli – Vegan Richa 

Tuesday – Pizza night

Wednesday -Peanut Tofu Buddah Bowl – Delish Knowledge 

Thursday – Shrimp Fried Rice – Averie Cooks

Friday – Greek Turkey Tacos

Weekend plans include swimming lessons, Sportball, going to the Festival of Trees and a Grey Cup party!


Foodie Friday

4 day work weeks fly by – maybe too fast for my liking when I am busy at work! This week we also had Avery’s 5 year check-up, she moved up to the 15th percentile for height and weight – but still is a peanut – no idea where she gets her size from 😉 I had a much needed haircut and that was as exciting as our week got.

Meal plans!

Saturday – Pizza Night

Sunday – Chicken Pot Pie – Magnolia Table cookbook

Monday -Shrimp Fajita Bowls – Skinny Taste

Tuesday – Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup & biscuits – Family Fresh Meals

Wednesday – Quick & Easy Creamy Tomato Mushroom Pasta – Oh She Glows

Thursday – Sweet Chili Chicken Stir-fry Bowls – Budget Bytes

Friday – Blackened Fish Tacos with mango and cabbage slaw –  Magnolia Table cookbook

If you have seen from my Instagram stories that cookbook is my current fave! Every recipe is amazing – especially the baking and pancakes!

Weekend plans, we are going to Disney on Ice with the girls and I am thinking we might decorate for Christmas 🙂



Foodie Friday

After a couple busy work months things are now settled down – which means maybe, just maybe I will get back to this blog! We had a fairly uneventful week – days fly by and before I know it Friday is here every week so without much to share here is next week’s meal plan.

Saturday – Souptacular & biscuits

Sunday –  Baked salmon, Potato & Asparagus Salad – Oh She Glows

Monday – Family Supper

Tuesday – Butternut Squash Ravioli with sauteed spinach & chicken sausage

Wednesday – Turkey Tacos

Thursday – Slow Cooker Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken & rice – Budget Bytes

Friday – Roasted Chickpea Nachos (because we all need easy Friday night suppers!)

Weekend plans – first of all, it is Avery’s 5th birthday! We are also curling in a bonspiel with my work AND it is a long weekend!


Foodie Friday

November you guys?! I actually love this time of the year as it is all about Christmas for me very soon 😉 And in 8 days Miss. Avery turns 5!

Highlight of our week was obviously Halloween. Chloe was a princess for dayhome and then changed into another princess dress for trick or treating. Avery was a genie:

I took the girls out for an hour and they did great! It was SO nice out too! We only had 40 kids to our house which seems low.

My meal planning report from last week on Goodfood? I loved it! I liked the meals, they were fairly simple to make and was enough for us four for supper and three lunches – so decent quantities!

Saturday – At a friend’s house

Sunday – Slow Cooker Banh Mi Rice Bowls – Skinny Taste

Monday – Crockpot Chicken Tacos – Chocolate Therapy

Tuesday – Pizza night!

Wednesday – Pesto pasta with shrimp

Thursday – Thai Cashew Chicken – Well Plated

Friday – OUT

This weekend we have Avery’s birthday party, swimming lessons and a get together with friends 🙂


Foodie Friday

Aside from another busy week the only eventful thing I have to share is falling down the stairs and possibly breaking my toe 🙁 The good news is it is not that painful and most of my normal activities are still okay.

Also, how it is Halloween next week?! I have no idea what Chloe is going to dress up as – it changes daily, and Avery is being a genie. I cannot say I love Halloween but taking the girls trick or treating is a highlight for sure.

Next week we are trying Good Food after a friend gave me a couple free meals to try it – I have not used any meal kit service in a couple years but on a busy week I am excited to have it.

Saturday – Turkey Tacos

Sunday – Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup & cornbread – Cooking Classy

Monday – Spanish Chicken Thighs with Parsley Vinaigrette – GoodFood

Tuesday – Coconut Chicken Fingers & salad – Andi Mitchell 

Wednesday –Sweet & Sour Shrimp with Rice – GoodFood

Thursday – Pancakes and turkey bacon

Friday – Chicken and Veggie Brown Rice Bowls with peanut Sauce – Cooking Classy

Weekend plans include pumpkin carving, birthday party prep and flu shots (shhh don’t tell Avery!).
