Nothing but Blue Skies....

We had a big downpour on Friday but on Saturday, the storm that was suppose to dump snow in our backyard decided to head north and instead we got beautiful blue skies. We were completely bummed but what can you do, I guess we'll just have to make a trip up to the mountains to see snow this year.  Aside from that, the weekend was just simply wonderful.  We got more plants (a few more tomato plants and two blueberry bushes).  I am thinking of trying to find a fig or date tree this week too, yummmmmm!  I've started to get better about working out again which is nice.  I'm finally not all talk, I'm also action.  I can still feel my abs from my morning of pilates on Saturday.  Sunday I fixed that nagging feeling and did some reorganization in the kitchen.  I think I will finish up cleaning out the pantry tonight and I can breathe again.  :) 

Now, what's for dinner this week?
  • Sunday: Chicken Satay in peanut sauce and Garlic Sesame Broccoli
  • Monday: Blood Orange Tofu* (inspired by Iowa Girl Eats) with stir fry Bok Choy & Carrots
  • Tuesday: Trader Joe's Pizza and backyard Salad (Hooray we have Lettuce!!!)
  • Wednesday: Taco Salad
  • Thursday:  Chicken and Rice Casserole (crockpot style)*
  • Friday: Mahi Mahi Tacos
  • Saturday:  Pulled Pork Nachos
 *is part of the new recipe and crockpot meal item on the yearly to-do list

So excited for this week's meals.  I think we will officially start doing one vegetarian meal a week now this way we won't get tired of the same proteins since there are only 3 types (bird, fish, pork) we eat.  I'm also excited to finally start a little harvesting, granted it's only just lettuce but still. This week is a busy one, filled with gym trips and pilates classes.  Let's see what's in store:
  • Go to the gym 3 times
  • Go to Pilates twice
  • Finish organizing pantry
  • plant blueberry plants
  • Create a new waffle recipe... will blog more about it this week
  • Really post about the garden
  • Get side garden set up for cauliflower, broccoli, and cabbage.
  • Find a fig or date tree and buy it 
  What an exciting week coming up and to top it off, it's March tomorrow!  What are you looking forward to this week?

We had a little bit of snow last week. Just enough to freak everyone out.
I've got Zumba tonight and Thursday. I'm going to dinner with friends on Wednesday.
