This week's menu

We are back in Seattle this week.  Thank gosh.  We love seeing our family, but it's nice to be home.  Now that we are home, we can get back to eating a little more healthy.  We ate like crap while we were on vacation.  Well, the food we ate wasn't crap, but we just ate out so much and so often.  I can't believe I am actually saying this but I am EXCITED to cook again.  I am excite to not eat out.  I am excited to start eating healthy again.

This week, we will be doing easy breakfasts and lunches will probably be all the same again, but not that I have two toddlers in the house I will write out what I am making for them.

L-maybe something premade from Trader Joe's since it's shopping day and I don't have anything here in the house
D- Loaded baked potato and chicken casserole

B-green smoothie
L-cucumber and tomato salad, kids will get homemade mac and cheese and chicken
D- TACO TUESDAY!!!  Black bean tacos (shhhh...don't tell Matt that these will be meatless!)

D-Turkey and veggie skillet

B-green smoothie
L-cucumber salad for me and italian sausage and broccoli
D-Hawaiian sweet potato skins

L-cucumber salad for me and italian sausage and broccoli for the kids

B-pancakes and bacon
D-Chicken noodle soup

L/D-fried chicken and mashed potatoes

I am making homemade butter this week (or will be attempting it) and using the buttermilk from the homemade butter to use for the chicken.  I am also going to serve fruit with dinner this week.  When we were in Vegas, my grandma-in-law served fruit with almost every dinner and I really liked the addition.

Figuring out this clean eating stuff will happen eventually and I am loving the challenge.  I am also happy to say that even though we ate like crazy people the last two weeks, I didn't gain much more than a pound or two but I am ready to get back on track and drop some more.  Tuesday I also start training for my first 5K marathon on March 3rd (yes I realize that is only like two weeks away, but what the heck right?).

That is it for now folks, what are you eating this week?
