Weekly Eats: 2

Good Tuesday morning!

I planned to share my weekly eats with you yesterday but ended up taking a sick day because I woke up with a pulled neck and shoulder. Ouch. Does that happen to any of you? I couldn’t rotate my head to the right and most of my day was spent with a heating pad, in bed horizontal. It feels a bit better today but I will be taking it easy..when all I want to do is take all the workout classes..boo.

Storm Jonas impacted our meal plan this week haha, that feels like a dramatic statement but grocery deliveries scheduled to arrive over the weekend were cancelled. Really, no biggie, we live walking distance from a few nice, small markets so we snagged dinner ingredients before cooking Sunday and last night. It made me feel a bit European just buying one meals worth of supplies haha. Luckily groceries and Blue Apron are scheduled to arrive today.

Sunday: Breakfast for dinner – because it was easy! Sautéed mushrooms, roasted brussel sprouts, roasted Japanese sweet potato wedges and a fried egg.

Monday: Chicken stir fry served over white rice, mix in’s included bok choy, red onion, mushrooms and green beans. I made a quick Asian marinade with soy, sesame oil, fish sauce and honey.

Tuesday: Blue Apron, Creamy Lemon Linguine

Wednesday: Blue Apron, Shrimp and Pineapple Fried Rice

Thursday: Blue Apron, Chicken and Sage Biscuit Pot Pie

Friday: We have happy hour with friends..I am sure we will grab a casual bite out after drinks.

Saturday: Wherever the day takes us!

Weekly Eats: 1

Hi friends, hope you had an enjoyable weekend..we had our “first snow” and admittedly frolicked a like little kids yesterday.

Here is a peek of our menu for the week – note, lunch for both of us varies so I won’t include those meals.

Sunday: Out! After a late  yoga class, hubs and I walked to a casual grab and go restaraunt in Koreatown and made  hot boxes of goodies – mine had a seafood pancake, tofu, cucumber salad and glass noodles.

Monday: Buddha bowls, my first attempt at making these at home, I plan on incorporating quinoa, roasted brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes, wilted kale and topping it with a fried egg and avocado plllluus siracha or ketchup. Condiments elevate meals from good to amazing in my book.

Tuesday: Asian turkey meatballs, leftover quinoa, carrot “fries” and spinach with shallots.

Wednesday: Paleo fried “rice”, loosely based on this recipe. Cauliflower, chicken, green onions, shredded carrots and bacon mmm.  Hubs actually likes cauli rice, he’s not so keen to spaghetti squash as a noodle replacement though..pick your battles.

Thursday: My first attempt at a tempeh stir fry..any tips? I plan to modify this recipe and add green beans. mushrooms and rice.

Friday: No plans! Usually this means either a dinner out with friends or date night (my fav!).

Saturday: Trip to Greenwich to hang with Alex and Audra, so whatever the crew wants, will be devoured. Excited already!
