Foodie Friday

So this week we saw snow – too soon! But luckily it melted fast. It was a blur of a week and I am not sure how it is Thanksgiving weekend already! I told myself I would take more photos this week an failed miserably – I took two.

Miss.C working hard on her laptop Monday after work:

And the girls chilling on the couch while I made supper Tuesday – I hate using the TV but it makes cooking supper etc so much easier!

Other than that I was once again thankful for lunch hour workouts since it seems to be the only time I have to workout now, I am working hard on refinishing our bedroom furniture ( two nightstands and our dresser) for a mini bedroom makeover and Wednesday I worked a 12+ hour day – OY.

I have been trying a lot of new recipes lately and had some awesome wins – that chicken pot pie soup from last week – SO good! I love trying new recipes but hate searching for them – meal plan takes me a solid hour these days!

Saturday – Cauliflower Fried Rice – Eat Yourself Skinny

Sunday – Thanksgiving

Monday – Leftovers

Tuesday – Spaghetti & turkey meatballs

Wednesday – Salmon Tacos with mango salsa – Diet Hood

Thursday – Black Bean burgers (Costco) & salad

Friday – Spicy Tuna Avocado Wraps & sweet potato fries – Eat Yourself Skinny

This weekend we have family photos, and we are hosting Thanksgiving – I hope everyone enjoys this weekend with lots of food and family and friends 🙂

I am actually off work today – YAY! But with a huge to do list, starting with a pre-school field trip, then a hair appointment and getting our rental house ready for a new tenant. Hopefully we finish early and can enjoy some of this weather before it leaves us!

Our week… All week was so nice out. Monday evening Chad suggested skipping baths that night and going for a walk. So happy we did!

Tuesday I worked late, Wednesday I had book club and last night more rental house stuff 😉 So it was busy.

I am so thankful for lunch hour workouts these days, not sure when I would work out if not!

My favourite new lunch hour hang out, My Revolution – post coming soon on this!

Meal planning!

Saturday – Greek Chicken Wraps & sweet potato fries

Sunday – Chicken Pot Pie Soup & biscuits – Gimme Some Oven

Monday – Shrimp Fried Rice – Averie Cooks

Tuesday – Crockpot Chicken Tacos – Belle of the Kitchen

Wednesday – Leftovers for the family since I work late

Thursday – eanut Chicken with Noodles – Averie Cooks

Weekend plans! I signed up for a race tomorrow morning only to realize it leaves me 10 minutes to get from swimming lessons to the start line and that will not happen so sadly it is out. I will be on the look for another one since I had hoped to run a 10km race this fall. And then we are just getting the final things done at the rental house and I have a longer to do list at home since Sunday looks rainy.

Enjoy your weekends!

Well it is official we had our first snow yesterday – blah! But it did not accumulate or stay thankfully and the weekend looks sunny again 🙂

Our week could have been better – both Chad and I came down with colds 🙁 Chloe had a runny nose for a couple days and Avery lucked out. So this meant a quiet week for us all.

Tuesday night we did have a date night for our anniversary and the concert we had planned to go through got cancelled so instead we went for supper and drinks. I was feeling crappy so we headed home after that but still had a nice night out.

 

I took no photo of the girls this week except one of Avery helping Chloe when we got home, Chloe refuses to let me help her with her shoes and coat – only Avery is allowed:

Exercise wise I got three lunch classes, two spin classes and a yoga class. I have to admit lunch classes are really awesome these days, it frees up my evenings and lets me extra sleep in the morning.

With this cooler weather brings fall-inspired suppers which I was so ready for!

Saturday – BBQ Chicken Quesadillas – Budget Bytes

Sunday – Turkey Chili

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

Tuesday – Minestrone Soup & grilled cheese – Two Peas & Their Pod

Wednesday – Easy Shrimp & Broccoli Stir-Fry – Damn Delicious

Thursday– Turkey Avocado Club Wraps & sweet potato fries

Friday – Slow Cooker Taco Chicken Bowls – Budget Bytes

This weekend we have a community BBQ and my niece’s 2nd birthday party and that will be more than enough for me! Enjoy your weekends!

Minutes ago it hit me it was Thursday! And since I have 30 minutes before spin class you are all in luck 😉

This week’s highlight? My birthday! 32 was pretty darn good and 33 will be better I know it 🙂 I had my family over for cake after supper and was spoiled by everyone. Gift cards for coffee, an organics store, kombucha, a new blow dryer (my request), a sign I wanted and the beautiful flowers plus cupcakes and cake, what more could a girl want?!

Yeah my Mom fit all 33 candles on that cake!

Nothing else to report from our week, we have had a few much needed rainy days and I really will not complain about that.

My girls being silly in the tub:

Meal planning…

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

And like that summer is over! I have no idea how it always goes by so darn fast but it does.

The weather has been beautiful all week! We have had a quiet week, I got out for a run one night, we baked cookies one night and I caught up on much needed sleep!

This one, always destroying something. I have been starting to think of Christmas gifts and honestly want to get her bins of junk she can dump out over and over again.

Good thing she is cute 🙂 These girls are getting too big too fast!

We also got our Usborne book order (love these books!) and Avery has been hard at work with her letter tracing and doing so good!

Onto meal planning. I am kinda excited for fall meals I have to admit. But will wait a couple more weeks until we dive into the,
