Meal plan for June 17th – 23rd

We have eaten approximately 492 strawberries in the last week from the garden.  This is how many made it into the house. The rest were transported in Jack’s stomach.

My father-in-law is a huge golfer and has dreamed of someone in the family enjoying it as well.  He found some left-handed clubs, and let’s just say, he might possibly be the happiest grandpa around.

Troy is off today and was off last Sunday for his birthday.  I know his schedule is sporadic and he doesn’t get to choose it, but I’d like to point out that he was gone on my birthday AND Mother’s Day.  Ahem.

This week I don’t really have our meals planned.  I’m working late on Monday, I’m off Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, and Thursday we have a play date for dinner.  I’ll figure it out Monday or so, and go grocery shopping on Tuesday.  God willing, Troy will be able to hang out with Jack at home and I get my toes did before getting groceries.  A girl can dream, right?

Hopefully, you are all more prepared for the week.  What are you having?

  1. My husband and I have been on a huge fruit kick! We cut up apples, strawberries, nectarines, and raspberries, throw them in a bowl and add a bit of cream. We figure the delicious, healthy fruit cancels out the bad things in cream, yes? lol SOOOO good and you don’t feel weighed down after eating! I have also been craving chocolate goodness and have been putting Nutella on Ritz. Other than that we are enjoying some taco salad, hummus wraps and we are learning how to make stuffed zucchini and grape leaves in true Middle Eastern fashion! So excited!

    • I’m not a nutritionist, but I know that the body needs fat to process nutrients, so really the cream is only helping you digest the good stuff in the fruit! ;-D

      What do you put on your hummus wraps?

      Last week, I figured out how to make those crispy tostada bowl things without frying them. I’ll be doing a post on them next week!

    • I like your reasoning! 🙂

      The hummus wraps are easy and delicious! I cut the chicken boobs into bite size pieces, add some parsley, fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper and cook them in a bit of olive oil. Then we just slap some hummus on tortillas, add lettuce, the chicken and devour. Crazy easy and really flavorful. I use dried parsley because I don’t really like fresh. I also squeeze a bit of lemon juice on the innards of my wrap and sometimes throw in a wee bit of cheese or corn.

      I am already looking forward to your post about the crispy tostada bowls sans the frying! Those things are friggin’ delicious. . .

  2. Well spaghetti at some point and chicken at some point and that’s as far as I got.

    Oh and Strawberries as well! : ) Love your pic..I have some here too and oh they are so sweet when they are local and fresh! 🙂
