Foodie Friday

For the first week back after a week off this week flew by!

Tonight, we are going for supper with Chad’s Mom and Step-Dad, then probably just going home. This weekend there is more nursery stuff for us to do, we have Chad’s Grandma’s 85th birthday party, and then some neglected yard work.

I never did get a Foodie Friday post up last week, I meal planned but forgot about the post seeing as we were just on our way back from holidays.

For this week:

Saturday – Roasted Chickpeas Nachos

Sunday – We will be at the birthday party

Monday –  Superfood Quinoa Salad – Iowa Girl Eats

Tuesday – Soup (TBD) & cilantro and cheese biscuits

Wednesday – Burgers (BBQ) and kale salad

Thursday – Grilled tuna wraps, waffle fries and salad

Friday – Creamy Kale & Mushroom Chicken Pasta – Iowa Girl Eats

I am officially a on eat/clear our garden mission. We have tons of lettuce, kale. beans, peas to eat asap. Along with carrots, onions and beets once I dig them up. The really sad news? After years of having tons of zucchini this year we got ZERO. Plants are there, healthy and flowering but no veggies. I am sad since I love baking with it.

And just so today’s post in not photo-less, some pics from this week:

A slow but steady progress on the nursery:



I feel huge these days! Tummy feels like it cannot get bigger, though I know it can and will:

Last night’s supper, BBQ chicken pizza and kale. With baby taking up so much room eating is a challenge some days. I get full so easy.

    Freeze your Kale!! Wash, dry, freeze, it comes out of the freezer sweeter and just like fresh picked pretty much. Same with bean and peas just a quick blanch and then freeze them. Also, I still have shredded zuchinni in my freezer from last year if you want some I will bring you some! You look awesome and baby is super cute!

      I will do just that! Thanks 🙂 So much kale this year! I would LOVE zucchini, wanted to bake and freeze muffins for when baby comes. Baby is growing that is for sure. I think my belly button is days away from popping. Crazy.
