What I Ate Wednesday

Our building was having some internet difficulties this morning.  How this happens when its 80 degrees and sunny out is beyond me.  It finally stopped resetting itself around lunchtime.  Here were today’s eats!

Breakfast: watermelon and coffee

Loving all the fresh fruit that’s becoming available!

Breakfast 20130612Lunch: lamb kebob platter from the Mediterranean Delights food truck

The nice ladies there even let me substitute the stuffed grape leaves for the chickpeas

Lunch 20130612

Dinner: hamburgers on the grill with a side of baked beans and ear of corn

We tried the maple bacon instead of the usual homestyle beans.  Good decision.

Dinner 20130612I did well with water today! I drank 1500 ml (2 fills of the camelbak waterbottles) and a can of seltzer with dinner.

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.
