What I Ate Wednesday

Breakfast: Coffee with a big bowl of fresh fruit

Breakfast 20130522

Lunch from Wendy’s: Spicy Chicken sandwich and french fries

Lunch 20130522Dinner: Chicken with onion, frozen peas and carrots in indian simmer sauce.  The sauce is butter chicken and was a new flavor for us.  I thought it was good, a bit sweet almost.  Served alongside basmati rice and the last of the cauliflower rice from the other day mixed in.

Dinner 20130522

Off to go for our new ritual of an evening walk! And by new I mean we’ve gone on a walk the past two nights on the trails around our neighborhood.  I’ve found it to a nice way to unwind and spend some time together doing something active instead of mindlessly watching TV.  Not that we have to go everyday, but I hope we can make it a habit to do something active together a few days a week.


Monday Meal Planning


Being gone for a week and eating out the whole time sure does make you crave some meals that you cook yourself.  Here’s what’s on our menu this week:


Moroccan Meatballs (with beef instead of lamb) and my first attempt at cauliflower rice.

Homemade pizza

Chicken in indian simmer sauce with rice

Ravioli with marinara sauce

After seeing those meatballs on Rachel’s menu plan for the past few weeks I figured this recipe had to be a hit.  The other things make regular appearances on our menu.  We typically buy the jar of Patak’s simmer sauce, it is the one with the purple label and add in some vegetables.



And probably a lunch out at the deli down the road


Green Smoothies

Fruit and Yogurt

So much fruit on sale at the grocery store lately.  I’ve got cantalope, blueberries and some watermelon to eat this week.

I’m leaving the weekend open at this point in anticipation of some cookouts for Memorial Day.

I’ve been slacking on my water consumption lately.  I’m setting myself a goal of drinking 2-3 of my 750ml camelback water bottle which will give me a 50-75 oz total.
