And Week 26 of Hubby’s Unemployment Adventures ….
THANKFULLY, this past week Hubby had quite a bit of activity on the job front … not that he received any offers or anything but lots of inquirers and requests for further info and of course, salary requests. That’s a difficult area for him as he knows he was paid below average before so he’s trying to boost the salary a little … I think its like playing with fire.
This upcoming week is going to be busy prepping for the Boat Parade Party and I want to keep it stress free (hello Gaia Herbs Holy Basil Leaf, 120 Liquid Phyto-CapsulesHoly Basil) …
Sunday – Princess is 23. Where has time gone?? She had requested we BBQ so its bacon blue cheese burgers and Asian cabbage salad
(which I realize I need to do a post on!) Beef from freezer, Hubby bought buns, blue cheese and shrooms from fridge, bacon from freezer and salad stuff from fridge
– leftover chicken/bacon/swiss/mushroom sausages with a nice rice pilaf that Hubby had made Saturday night (all from the fridge!)
– leftover Burgers from Sunday (all from the fridge!)
– I need to make this evening a cookie night so shooting for something simple like salad or soup and salad, or sandwiches … you know, easy! I show the shrimp salad as I have everything on hand except the mangos and avocado (I do have guacomole!) so I could make do with THIS if Hubby was willing 🙂
– Hubby will most likely need to take a few of the Holy Basil vitamins today 🙂 … so I’m planning on firing up the crock pot in the morning with Ranch Chops
Friday – out company Christmas dinner at Grille 66 … yummm
Saturday – Boat Parade Party tonight. We anticipate about 30 people and possibly a few more. There will be a lot of food and our goal is to to a little prep each night this week so we aren’t swamped this day. I will try to get the full menu plan for this night up with a separate post.
I’ve been doing my smoothie several times a week, 2 to 3 times in place of the normal eggs and bacon. A few times I added a handful of spinach just to get me some more greens for the day … and I’ve also been pretty good about eating salads for lunch and avoiding carb heavy, floury products. When I weighed myself, on Thursday I was 2 lbs less and again on Sunday morning, the scale read the same, so that’s great that I’m at least able to keep it up this week! Yahoo! So, I don’t know if it’s the seriously conscientiousness of what I’m putting in my mouth, the 3 new vitamins, the smoothies … all I know is that my exercise level has NOT increased so that definitely needs to change!
