My eating has hit the summer slump along with my exercising. I have been having a great time with the boys and all of our traveling, but it is starting to take a toll on me. I'm tired and not very motivated. Plus I'm a little overwhelmed by all we have going on this month. I'm trying to take it one day at a time and am menu planning for the next few weeks to try to help with some of the stress.
Last night we had a delicious summer BBQ meal. The ribs were from the pig we bought a few weeks ago and the meat was excellent! My only complaint was I wish I had more.
|Ribs, potato salad & a margarita - perfect summer meal!|
Monday, 8/11 - Bacon Cheddar Turkey Meatballs - AJ & Daniel requested meatballs
Tuesday, 8/12 - BLT Scallop Salad (Relish recipe)
Wednesday, 8/13 - Mediterranean Pork Chops & Cauliflower
Thursday, 8/14 - Cabbage & Beef Casserole - I got 2 free heads of cabbage last week so I need to figure out how to use them up. This looked easier than stuffed cabbage (Relish recipe)
Friday, 8/15 - Sesame Noodles with Chicken & Broccoli
Saturday, 8/16 - Appetizers and Leftovers
Sunday, 8/17 - Cajun Shrimp Casserole
On Saturday I am hosting a freezer cooking workshop with a few friends. My friend sells Tastefully Simple and they offer a party where you assemble 10 meals (each meal is 4-6 servings) that you can pop in your freezer then pull out and eat later. I'm SO excited about this because I love freezer cooking. With our busy life it is so easy to just pull something out of the freezer and pop it in the oven and have a healthy dinner. I'll let you guys know how it goes in a few weeks, after we have tasted a few meals.
As always, I'm linking up with Laura at Mommy, Run Fast & Jill at Fitness, Health and Happiness. Go check them out for some more yummy recipes!
