Foodie Friday

Can time slow down?? I feel like it was just June!

Our week was a fast one with the holiday Monday. The girls have been so tired with playing at dayhome all day and the heat. Tuesday Avery was in bed at 6:45pm! Chloe enjoyed coconut milk ice cream with Dad while Avery slept – shhh 😉

Oh and her 4th of July dress/photo:

Sadly she came down with a rash Wednesday and while it looks no fun she is happy as can be 🙂

Wednesday night I went for a run, I slacked in June on my kilometers so this month I need to focus on gaining some back.

I was bummed Chloe was sick but Chad reminded me it could always be worse – SO true!

Yesterday the girls had a day with Chad’s Dad and then his Mom arrived after work from B.C. and she is spending the weekend with us 🙂

Meal planning:

Saturday – Is it bad that I am not planning anything since I am away?!

Sunday – The Best Turkey Burgers & salad – The Live Fit Girls

Monday – Fish Tacos

Tuesday – Chicken, Broccoli & Pepper Stir-Fry with rice – Julia’s Album

Wednesday – Easy Balsamic Veggie Pasta – Gimme Some Oven

Thursday – Chicken fingers, roasted broccoli & Cucumber Quinoa Salad – Gimme Some Oven 

Friday – Kale & Chicken Caesar Wraps & sweet potato fries – The Girl on Bloor

I am off work today – woot woot! And taking advantage of Grandma in town to get a pedicure and haircut. Saturday we are going out to a festival for the day and I have my best friend’s stagette that night 🙂 Sunday will be our long run and maybe a bike ride.

Foodie Friday

Hey All! Hope you have had a sunny week. The weather around here had been too good to us (still) so I am hoping that doesn’t mean a not so awesome summer like last year.

Anyways, our week… We had park time, bike rides, I finally got up my gallery wall in the bonus room (it took me a year to gather everything for it) and an evening run.

I am starting to embrace the floral trend more and picked up this dress for $20 this week:

And I also dug out this oldie this week:

We also had an appointment for Miss. Chloe and it looks like we are off all dairy – even lactose free things for a bit to try and rule out a dairy protein intolerance versus lactose. This just means different milk for her (rice milk she loves!) and being extra cautious on the dairy side of things.

Meal planning. Next week is a tad crazy so I tried to keep things easy for us.

Saturday – Blackened Shrimp Tacos – Budget Bytes

Sunday – Chicken Kale Caesar Wraps & roasted broccoli  – Budget Bytes

Monday – Egg Salad sandwiches & sweet potato fries (

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

Wednesday – Pesto Pasta with Tomatoes and Broccoli – ifoodreal

Thursday – OUT

Friday – Pizza – kind undecided 😉

This weekend we are planning a bike ride, a trip to Sunnybrook farm, our long run and a community clean-up and BBQ Sunday – should be a great weekend!

Foodie Friday

That was a whirlwind of a week! I still feel like it should be mid-week, not Friday!

Week highlights:

I went to an Orange Theory Fitness Class. While I liked it a lot more this time I just do not have the extra time for two sessions a week there with Sea Wheeze training which is #1 for workouts right now. I think after the race as my running break I will go and do a month there though.

We had one nice night outside, I love being outside and so do the girls:

Tuesday I had a stage 5 clinger on my hands:

We had a crazy wind and rain storm Wednesday which was also Chad’s birthday. We had family over for cake and that was about it – I felt bad not doing more for him!

Full disclosure, these photos were taken last night since we did not take one Wednesday. Oops.

Onto meal planning. I need some serious motivation here you guys. So please leave your comments on easy and favourite meals!

Saturday – Smokies & Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad – Canadian Living

Sunday – Rainbow Buddah Bowls – Super Healthy Kids

Monday Salmon burgers & The Best Kale Salad – The Balanced Berry

Tuesday – (Crockpot) Souptacular Soup & veggies and hummus

Wednesday – Asian Chicken Wraps & roasted broccoli – Well Plated by Erin

Thursday –  Thai Cashew Chicken & rice – Well Plated by Erin

Friday – Greek Turkey Tacos – Whitney Bond

We have no weekend plans! I have a few things w will probably do but no real agenda 🙂

Foodie Friday

So I totally slacked on photos this week. I took TWO.

A evening run on Monday:

And Chloe’s current favourite hobby, emptying my Ziploc bags out but then she does put them back 😉

I really do not even know what we did all week – HA! But I do know that I am now off for four days!

On an unrelated note, these two photos below are a year old – HOW?!

Onto meal planning:

Saturday – OUT

Sunday –  Bison burgers & grilled BBQ veggies

Monday – Easy Grilled Chicken (Damn Delicious) & Grilled Sweet Potato Salad – Two Peas & Their Pod

Tuesday – Tuna wraps  & garden salad

Wednesday – Skinny Burrito Bowls – Skinny Ms

Thursday – Sausage & Pepper Pasta – Budget Bytes

Friday – Fish Tacos with mango-avocado salsa

Long weekend plans: the farmers market, zoo, plant our garden, a long run and hopefully lots of fun 🙂

Foodie Friday

Our week was full of sun – again! I have tried to take advantage of the nice weather spending all the time I can outside.

Week highlights:

  • Playing outside in the sun:

  • Evening runs, Avery now wants to come with me all the time, on the bright side, she is a pretty good photographer:

  • Chloe is walking almost all the time!

  • I broke out my all-time favourite dress. I paid $5 for this 5 years ago at a garage sale (it was brand new!), and have worn it through both my pregnancies too:

Onto meal planning. I have to admit here that I am struggling with suppers these days, with the nice weather I want BBQ and salads but that is not always stuff the girls will eat. At the same time I refuse to make them different meals than what we eat.

Saturday – Chicken Fajitas

Sunday – Mother’s Day picnic – as long as the weather cooperates!

Monday – Balsamic Penne Pasta with Tomatoes and Asparagus –diethood

Tuesday – Curry Rice Bowls

Wednesday – Greek Chicken Kabobs & pita bread – Cooking Classy

Thursday – Thai Chicken Naan Pizza – Cookin’ Canuck

Friday – Smokies & Whole Foods Copycat Quinoa Salad – Damn Delicious

Our weekend is pretty full, a Mothers Day walk/run, a Coscto trip, garden work and hopefully a picnic for Mothers Day 🙂 Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
