Today is proving to be a busy one already. I’ve dropped off my mini at school, gone grocery shopping, put everything away and made lunches for today. I have about 30 minutes before I need to go pick her up and then I have an afternoon of appointments, and craziness ahead. Also, my new challenge group starts today and I’ve got a workout to fit in too. So let’s get to what’s on the menu for the week. This will be a loose menu since my in-laws are expected on Thursday, and that always changes dinner plans so, seat belts buckled and let’s go.
Breakfasts: Shakeology Shakes
Lunches: This Edamame, Corn & Farro Salad. It looks heavenly!
Snacks: Yogurt with almonds and fruit, apples with PB or other Nut Butter, String Cheese, Trail Mix. You know…the usual easy grab and go suspects.
Pressure Cooker Chicken Picatta with cauliflower rice and spinach salad. Yes, I know I made chicken picatta last week, it’s a favorite in this house. But this one is different. It’s not your typical Picatta-y (yep, made up that word), but it’s yummy. And my 4 year old eats it, so…
Bruschetta Grilled Chicken Zoodle Bowl I’m taking a Trader Joe’s shortcut and using their Bruschetta sauce. Have you ever used it? It’s delicious, and full of garlic…and already made for me.
Smoky Kale and Black Bean Tostadas. This is actually a Blue Apron recipe, but I’m using kale instead of the original swiss chard. Man, it’s yummy. My 4 year old won’t touch this. She’ll probably have a quesadilla.

Beefy Tomato Soup. This tastes like lasagna in a bowl. My daughter LOVES it. It’s comforting, and easy.
The other days of the week will be, I’m sure, leftovers one night, we have a Date Night out to celebrate our anniversary thrown in there since the in-laws are here to babysit. And then on Sunday is our normal Family Dinner but with my parents, the in-laws, and us. Should be fun!
