Life has been super busy lately! I’ve taken on more projects at work and and I haven’t been feeling 100% lately due to Texas’s horrible allergy season. But I am benedryling my way through this one!
We’ve been eating some good food around here! Betty Crocker’s Meat loaf, Taste of Home’s Roasted Chicken, quinoa patties and of course lots of zoodles (zucchini noodles…). I’ve been having Inspiralized’s Zucchini Noodles with Chicken, Feta and Spinach for lunch this week and it’s SO GOOD.
We’ve been taking some salad breaks– last week we skipped them completely and it was actually nice! I need to find a way to jazz up our dinner salad so that we don’t get sick of them so easily. Do y’all have any ideas?
Coming soon to the blog– I’ll be talking more about grocery bill budgeting. After looking at our grocery bill for the past couple months, we’ve decided that we need to start bringing it down and spending our money wisely. We are going to try to stick to $50-70 a week for groceries for the two of us (down from $100+ per week). Check back to see how we’re doing!
Now, I’ve got three weeks of my Sunday meal prepping to show you!
Below: washed and chopped broccoli, roasted bell peppers, roasted chickpeas, sour cream with Ranch seasoning, oatmeal raisin cookies, defrosted roast turkey, and of course hard boiled eggs! This week we had chickpea tacos for dinner for three nights. I can’t remember what we had the other nights, since this was three weeks ago.
Below are the quinoa patties I’ve been raving about, some steamed green beans, chopped cucumber and tomatoes, and washed/cut romaine lettuce. This was an easy food week– we had mashed potatoes, green beans and meat loaf for three nights, then we made polenta and more roasted chickpeas. The polenta didn’t turn out very good which is why I’m not sharing it on here haha!
Here’s the latest food prep from this past week: roasted chicken, red potatoes, onion and spinach (so good!!), baked chicken and spiralized zucchini noodles for the Inspiralized dish I had for lunch this week, sliced pineapple, and cut bell peppers for Nick’s lunches. We had roasted chicken & potatoes for two nights, then we had Skinny Taste’s spinach lasagna rolls for the other three nights!
We’re getting ready for a big camping trip! I’ll be making our grocery list today. Whats you’re favorite camping food? Keep in mind that we’re not really “camping”, we’re staying in a cabin this time so we’ll have access to a fully-equipped kitchen. I plan on having smores, lots of granola bars and trail mix, and maybe even turkey hot dogs!
Overall, I am so excited to get out into nature and relax. Being outside brings out the best in me!
