After a fun couple of days away, it’s so good to be home!
I’m going to work on my recap today and maybe tomorrow, because there’s a lot to cover. I just didn’t have the energy to do it yesterday!
I got back in to Albany a little before 1pm yesterday afternoon and then decided to hit up Whole Foods to do my grocery shopping for the week. (I knew that if I went home first, there was no way I was heading back out!) And by the time I got home, it was a little before 3pm and I all I wanted to do was spend my entire evening with my babes.
I swear…I’m gone for two days and he turned into even more of a little boy. Just crazy.
Lucky for me, my friend Kanika and I had about a three hour car ride home yesterday, so that gave me plenty of time to do a little meal planning for the week. It doesn’t happen often, as you guys know!
She recently turned me on to a site called Weelicious, and I’m sure some of you have heard of it. But they have some awesome recipes that are good for the whole family, along with some separate recipes for both toddlers and babies. Definitely something I’d recommend checking, for anyone!
So once I got home yesterday, I made a batch of Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf Bites for Lucas to have for the week.
The recipe makes a ton (I got 38 bites) so I put some in the fridge and the rest went into the freezer (Kanika said they freeze awesome and she puts them right into the toaster oven from the freezer and cooks for about 8 minutes on 350 degrees, I believe).
I also cooked up a batch of her Sweet Balsamic Glazed Chicken for Jay and I to have on hand during the week for lunch salads and sandwiches.
As for the rest of the week, here’s a little of what we’re lookin’ at for meals:
Sunday (yesterday): Cheeseburgers with provolone (made with lean ground sirloin and 1/2 a packet of Lipton onion soup/dip mix) and Blackened Green Beans (<—so good!)
Monday: Vegetarian Enchilada Casserole with side salads
Tuesday: Still undecided…having my parents and brother over for dinner!
Wednesday: Crockpot Chicken Chili Verde with brown rice and green beans
Thursday: Apple ‘n’ Bacon Mac & Cheese plus a veggie
Friday: Lightened Up Chicken Pot Pie Soup or grilled chicken pizzas (we’ll see what we feel like by then or how many leftovers we have)
Saturday: Friendsgiving! There’s going to be so. much. good. food.
How about you guys? Any good meals on the agenda for this week? Feel free to share your favorites! I always love new ideas.
