2014 weekly menu | week 21

the best thing i ate this week was a strawberry smoothie at the strawberry festival.
things are really slowing down around here.  i went to yoga this morning for the first time in weeks.  and what that means is that i drove to school to drop off the kids and drove out to go to the y!  no stopping in the parking lot and dealing with questions or issues. no running home to get something done. no running.

75 minutes of stretching, peaceful, mindful, intentional slowing down. that always helps to put me in the right state of mind for the week.

weekend eats
saturday: spaghetti and meat sauce - leftovers
sunday: pizza, chicken and salad to celebrate andrew and my nephew's birthdays

making this week
monday: chicken tostadas
tuesday: tuna (turkey for the kids) burgers, oven fries
wednesday: roasted tomato basil soup, grilled cheese
thursday: chicken baked with tomato and artichokes, salad
friday: pizza

this week jordan has finals - yikes!  then he is on summer vacation.  i have my last pto meeting.  the usual baseball games and school activities. but so much nicer now that the hard part is behind us.

i want to start linking to some of my favorite foodie sites every week.  the first one will come as no surprise as i have links to her recipes almost every week.

i've been following her blog for years now and it is my go-to site for new recipes.  i have tried many and not one has been disappointing.  all weight watcher friendly or just healthy if that's not your thing.  lots of delicious photos and the recipes are easy to follow.  and i love that she's coming out with a cookbook photographed by one of my favorite food photographers, penny de los santos.

some of my favorite recipes:

enjoy your week!
