This week is coming to an end…I can feel it. I’m ready for the weekend!
My fighting breakfast actually held me all morning, so I guess war zones are beneficial sometimes.
Lunch today was an amalgamation of leftovers in the fridge and it was tasty.
I had some leftover whole wheat pasta, some of my endless roasted cauliflower and broccoli (can you believe it’s still not gone?), and my leftover steak from the other night. I added a little soy ginger salad dressing, plus a few spears of asparagus.
Mm…I wish I had more pasta/steak leftovers so I could have this tomorrow, too! It was good and colorful with lots of textures and really filling.
I’m working on this orange right now – super juicy
If you can’t tell already, Nick and I are gone a lot on the weekends. My parents are about 6 hours from us, and his are only 2.5 hours. Needless to say, we get to visit them a lot, which we love.
The only thing I hate is the actual driving/riding in the car and having to pack/unpack, plus the rush once we get home and have no food in the house, etc.
The best things we try to do are:
- pack the night before
- make a list of everything we need
- pack some snacks/drinks in the car for us so we don’t have to get anything at a gas station or fast food place unless we’re desperate
- get gas/cash before we leave, if needed
- try to make my grocery list/meal list for the next week during the weekend so I know exactly what I need when we get back
