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!

Foodie Friday

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!

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 😉

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 😉

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 😉 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 😉

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 😉

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!
