Foodie Friday

Yup I did not forget about this week’s Foodie Friday. While I love Christmas baking and food. I more than ready to get back to regular eats that are a tad on the healthier side. I am feeling pretty blah these days from all the yummy but no so good for you food. I think that finally today we will be done with our leftovers too!

Here is the upcoming week’s meal plans. I have a couple new recipes thanks to my sister-in-law who bought me a new cookbook for Christmas, Quinoa Revolution.

Saturday – Kale, Red Pepper and Quinoa Toss – Quinoa Revolution

Sunday – Harvest Chicken and Quinoa Soup – Iowa Girl Eats 

Monday – NYE! The plan currently is to go out for supper 🙂

Tuesday – Kung Pao Chicken Quinoa – Quinoa Revolution

Wednesday – Chicken Field Salad – Nutritionist Eats

Thursday – Quinoa Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes, Pesto and Feta

Friday – Pizza and salad night!

This morning I finally made my way back to yoga. The class this morning was called Turkey Flow. Flow classes are my favorite and I was happy to my back after 6 weeks… gulp. I need to make it a goal of mine to go at least once a week. I ran into a friend in yoga and we decided to meet for sushi for lunch so after yoga I went home and changed into my running clothes for a short run. A short and cold run! It was still about –14 so a tad chilly but I managed to run about 4km. Not too bad. I will do another attempt tomorrow! My running legs are slowly coming back 🙂

I received a really nice and thoughtful package in the mail today from my friend, Priscilla (thank you again!):


Look at all those goodies! And the Banana bar was SO good. Wish we had these in Canada!

This afternoon I ran a few errands, meet my Mom for BOGO at Starbucks and did laundry. Now I have a few last to do list items before starting supper. I am using the last of our leftovers to make this recipe from the December Oxygen magazine:


I have high hopes for it!

Tonight my Mom and I are going to see The Guilt Trip, since Chad is going for beers with the boys. And it is Saturday already tomorrow. Where did the past week go?


What is your favorite way to use leftover turkey?

Any exciting NYE plans?

Not yet, might take it easy this year..supper, skating and fireworks it looks like!
