Monday again! It's as if the rest of the week passes in a blur. On Saturday night there was a skunk fart outside that sent my allergies into overdrive. Yesterday, DS woke up with a runny nose & me with puffy eyes & a scratchy throat. By mid afternoon my voice was gone and my whole body ached. I know it's allergies, cause colds & flu never affect my eyes. I went to bed at 9 and woke up at 3am, so I'm dragging today. My voice is still hoarse, but I feel a lot better. I did manage to get a lot done yesterday (especially the cooking), so here's what we're eating this week
Monday : Beef pot pie, veggies, salad
Tuesday : Chicken a la king with yellow rice and veggie sides
Wednesday : Same as Monday
Thursday : Same as Tuesday
Friday : Sam's pizza from the freezer & salad
Dessert : Apple pie
Lunch : BBQ chicken breasts from the freezer & salad
Breakfasts : Lemon blueberry muffins, eggs/omelets, cereal, toast, french toast (wheat bread, raisin bread, chocolate brioche), breakfast sausage with onions & peppers.
There's always a large variety of fresh fruit, veggies & salad fixings available. We also eat yogurt daily.
Hooray! DS is back to baking, so the muffins turned out well. They're a little overbaked. I actually prefer baked treats that way. The burnt flavor tastes much better to me 😂 I like potato chips the same way too. I know it's weird, but I love it!
I really wanted to make lasagna, but chose beef pie instead. That way I could make the individual pies (pictured) for DS for lunch.
I bought a 10 lb bag of apples at the produce market and made applesauce and apple pie. I usually bake the pie in a 13" pan, but I didn't want that much sweets. I normally double the recipe for the large pie, but didn't do so this time and ended up with too little dough for the topping. I don't do sugar crumble toppings. It's way too much sugar for us. I prefer square or rectangular pies, because I can easily slice into squares and freeze. I did that with half the pie so I'm not tempted to overeat and mess up my weight loss. I'm really tempted to go take a nap, but I'll probably just hit the hay early again tonight.
Bon Appetit! Have a wonderful week peeps!
