I have a short week to recap since we were out of town for Memorial Day. We also need to get back into Cook Smarts but it’s been hard with so many broken weeks and travel! We could just crack into the Cook Smarts vault for a night or two, but I have this mental block that I want to do the whole week at once. Soon!
Also, I’m thinking of turning Lately posts into just a “What I ate” one day at a time (Like Caitlin has been doing!) maybe once or twice a week. Half of you say that these posts are your favorite and half of you think they are too long and lack context. I like writing them, and a part of me doesn’t want to let go of the old “everything I ate” style of KERF, but photographing one or two days a week instead of 5-6 would sure be nice. What should I do!?
A good mix of breakfasts this week –
Strawberries, eggs, toast and coffee. I’ve had a few requests for a scrambled eggs video. I’m trying to figure out the logistics on making one. I feel like it was probably the first food many of you learned how to cook, yet there have been a lot of requests…sooo… : )
This looks like overnight oats, but it was actually a bowl of yogurt (Snowville Creamery) topped with chia and raw oats plus strawberries and banana. Drippy Wild Friends nut butter on top! Deconstructed overnight oats if you will.
More yogurt, strawberries, banana, chia and sunbutter. This is my favorite early summer breakfast : )
Berries, toast with jam, eggs. Fill ‘er up!
And lastly, yogurt with fruit and a crumbled Carrot Raisin Walnut muffin from the bakery.
M: Walking at Goucher College with the boys
T: I took the long way to the gym and walked 2 miles on the treadmill while talking to friends. Then I went to small group with Erin where we did stations including tossing a 15 pound ball back and forth while standing on an upsidedown bosu. Fun times1
W: Walked to the gym and back and went to athletic conditioning. We did lots of outdoor running – up and down Monticello Hill!
TH: Active rest day with some basic cardio (elliptical and stairmaster) and walking to and from.
F: Lifting with Erin + warm up on the elliptical and walk.
S: Ran to the market with the boys. We covered about 3.5 miles plus the walk home.
What’s for lunch?
A salad with cheese, sweet potatoes, garden greens and lots of honey toasted almonds. Plus a side of baked beans I got from the Smoked BBQ Co downtown!
Day 2: a No Bull Burger on a toasted bun. Such a filling lunch.
Salad on the side! I sure wish Mazen would go back to eating No Bulls. That was so convenient. He’s in a stage now where he won’t touch them!
Quesadilla! I picked up these corn tortillas at our city market and filled them with leftover chicken and cheddar cheese. plus leftover sugar snaps and apple slices on the side (a discarded apple Mazen took one bite of and gave up!)
Leftover meatballs (see below) with greens and cheese. Lighter lunch because I had a smoothie at the gym late morning.
And more leftovers – a salad with greens, fresh mozzarella, tomato and more meatballs. Mazen won’t eat the meatballs either!
Here are the said meatballs – I made this recipe. SO easy and so delicious!
And because dinner was on the light side – I had some of this Great Harvest cookie for dessert. We had some around for a picnic and it’s a good think I don’t have them at home often. I’d never be able to resist!
This meal was a winner – pork chips with leftover rice and homemade cooked apples on top. Yuuuum! Lots of grilled asparagus on the side.
And last but not least, Girls Night at Parallel 38.
I had a tabouleh salad, this platter of veggies..
And this AMAZING shrimp with fennel!
Happy week to you all!
