Foodie Friday

Between it being the first week back after holidays and a darn cold week this week went by so slow. Seriously though – enough snow and winter!

Chloe has been fighting something or teething or…who knows what for two weeks. Yesterday she got worse with a fever so I picked up the girls early and we hung out at home for the afternoon. Other than that we had a quiet week, Chloe had a doctors appointment and is doing great, she also learned how to open all cupboards and drawers and loves to pull out everything!

Chloe getting into trouble, basically on repeat:

Avery has been picking out her own clothes when I say I am buying things online and I am for the most part buying what she shows me, and I have to say sometimes I am not sure but then she puts them on and they suit her! Like this shirt:

Yesterday we made Mini Egg cookies, I had some I wanted gone so we used them in cookies:

Slate Plate

Chloe is obsessed with her walker:

And me? I got to a spin and yoga class this week! I am taking advantage of the next few months with no big race until August to do more more classes.

Onto meal planning for next week:

Saturday – Greek Bison Burgers (Run Fast, Eat Slow cookbook) & smoothies

Sunday – My Grandma’s Birthday Party

Monday – Chicken, Broccoli, Bell Pepper Stir-fry – Julia’s Album

Tuesday – Chicken Burrito Bowls – Dinner at the Zoo

Wednesday – Turkey Sausage & Recovery Quinoa Salad (Run Fast, Eat Slow cookbook)

Thursday – Fartlek Chili – (Run Fast, Eat Slow cookbook)

Friday – Leftovers

This weekend we are hosting my Grandma’s (80th) birthday and that is about all we have planned!

Weekend Recap

We had a quiet weekend back at home – it felt good to just hang out after two weeks away!

Saturday

We made a much needed Costco trip in the morning. Felt good to stock the fridge back up! Our afternoon was un-pictured, but involved a visit with some friends, fort making, playing and then we headed to a friend’s house for a dinner party. By the time we got home it was 10pm and we all went right to bed!

Sunday

We all slept past 7am! Chad and I both worked out, I just did a 3 mile run and some weights. I am taking a much needed running break and ready to do some other things before I jump into Sea Wheeze training.

We took Avery to yoga class and had coffee while she was in class – hopefully we can get her more now than we do not have long runs Sunday mornings.

At home I did a bunch of meal prep. I need to get better at doing this on Sundays, I made energy balls, banana bread and then prepped food for lunches and suppers.

Is that Slate Plate not awesome?! I need to get better at my designing on it but so excited to see if for photos and entertaining!

The girls painted, Avery told me “I love making messes!”, yes I know that 😉

Not much else to report on our weekend, hope everyone enjoyed their weekends!
