Keeping Up With...Food (Menu Plan 3/16 - 3/22)

I'm back after an unplanned two week vacation from blogging.  Life got a little crazy and I wasn't able to get a lot of stuff done that I normally do and blogging fell by the wayside.  I hadn't planned on a menu plan last week, but I didn't do any of my other posts either.

I've spent this weekend on my twice a year girls retreat.  It has been glorious!  We go away to Inspiration Bloom Inn for a weekend and just relax, eat, drink and hang out.  My friends all scrapbook but I haven't gotten into that yet.  I tend to bring my to do list that I never get to tackle and work on that.  I also watch movies (saw Gone Girl this weekend - awesome!), hot tub at midnight and did I mention drink??  I also don't have to cook for the 3 days, the Inn cooks, serves and cleans up for us.  Such a great weekend!
Snacks!  I had cheesecake twice and my first soda in months
Wine in a sippy cup for midnight hot tubbing!
But I'll be leaving here later this afternoon so it's back to normal life tomorrow.  I also have to reign in my eating.  It's been a month or so of eating like crazy.  I'm pulling it back now even though my birthday is in 2 weeks and I'll be eating lots of cake and pizza that weekend. 

Here's what we'll be eating this week to get back on track:
 Monday - Baked Potato Soup
Tuesday - Sausage & Cabbage - I don't like corned beef so I'm trying this for St Patrick's Day
Wednesday - Baked Chimichangas
Thursday - Hummus Crusted Chicken
Friday - Creamy Spaghetti Squash
Saturday - Freezer Meal - I'm hosting an oils class this night so I will be making some guacamole and other snacks with my oils.
Sunday - Beef Teriyaki and String Beans

Water Infuser Flavor - Lemon & Orange.  I haven't gone to the store so I'm using what I have in the fridge.  I drank this flavor all weekend and it was delicious.

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!  Have a great week!
