2015 weekly menu #33

last week grandma sue was here to make jam with the kids. she does most, if not all, of the work. the kids help smash fruit and i gather the jars but that's about it. we now have jam jars to give as gifts, or completely devour on pancakes and toast, it's good stuff. strawberry and peach for the win!

i was up extra early today, 5am, to cook eggs and serve breakfast at notre dame to the returning faculty. tonight i am helping to serve dinner to the band students. it's all about service this week!

our whole30 program was an epic fail last week. bobby made it until thursday when he inadvertently ate hummus at a work lunch (no beans are allowed). we had dinner with friends on friday night and we couldn't resist the bruschetta, and wine. we kind of knew we were done for and not 100% committed by then so it was easy to fall prey to the temptation.

we are trying to figure out a compromise this week. we ate really good food last week and in the few days we did it we saw changes.  would love to keep that going.

weekend eats
saturday: ate out in hollywood before jordan's band gig
sunday: pielogy

making this week
monday:  chicken noodle soup
tuesday: pan seared pork chops, appplesauce, salad
wednesday: bbq at notre dame for last day of band camp
thursday: bang bang shrimp, cole slaw, garlic green beans - didn't make this last week

looking forward to another good week.
