What I Ate Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!

When I woke up this morning I was really craving something savory.  I had coffee and 2 hard boiled eggs with tomato and avocado for breakfast.

When lunchtime rolled around, I thought about having the leftover ravioli from last night’s dinner, but I was hungrier than that so I wandered over to Chipotle for a burrito bowl.  If you haven’t tried the sofritas yet, DO IT!  They are so delicious and you would never know you’re eating tofu.  In addition to the sofritas my bowl had brown rice, fajita veggies, pico di gallo, corn and sour cream.

That burrito bowl kept me full through the afternoon so no snack.

Chicken Fried Steak was on the menu, but Zac worked late so we ended up going out.  We had a $10 off coupon to PF Changs to use by the weekend so just went today instead of Friday.  We split sichuan beef and sweet and sour chicken with brown rice on the side.

What I Ate Wednesday

Breakfast:

This morning I woke up craving eggs.  I made 2 hard boiled eggs and served with a tomato and half an avocado.  Seems like a weird combination but it is actually really good.  You get the fat from avocado, protein from the eggs and something fresh from the tomato.

Weekly Meal Plan

Normally I make the meal plan and we grocery shop over the weekend, but with the long weekend everything got shifted a bit.  I typically try and make a plan that incorporates the sales for that week and if I’m using only a small portion of a something, I try and make something later in the week that would use the rest of it.

We’re trying 2 new recipes this week!  Zucchini Boats we’ve had before, but summer squashes and italian sausage were on sale this week so it seemed like the perfect thing. Other things on sale included cherry tomatoes, fresh corn, frozen shrimp, red peppers and avocado.

On the menu for us

Tuesday: Grilled Salmon and Yellow Squash with Red Pepper Sauce

Wednesday: Out for sushi for a friend’s last day of her old job

Thursday: Spicy Grilled Shrimp with Quinoa Salad

Friday: Sausage Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Saturday: Spicy Black Bean Burgers and Corn

The black bean burgers are a new to me item that my sister recommended.  I figure we’ll have some leftover tomatoes and avocado to create a fresh salsa of sorts to top them with.
