And … Week #2 is here for Whole30 … I think I can do this … I really do! I wish Hubby was on with me but he’s eating what I make and then some so I guess it’s a start …
We’ve had a little excitement this past week between Princess being in the hospital and then Hubby’s having some serious back issues again (crud, this last round of shots did NOTHING) for him … to the point where when he went to see Princess on Saturday, he asked how far he was going to need to walk and I was like, crap, maybe you should ask for a handicap hanger for times like this 😦 He refuses as he doesn’t “need it” but I told him that there are times when he DOES need it … even today, he’s pretty much immobile which really stinks … I can see how people under pain management can totally abuse and over-medicate themselves now. Keeping a close eye on him so that doesn’t happen!
A Costco trip came along, finally, last week … did you catch that post? I was so excited to see they FINALLY got the Avocado oil that I had to whip my phone out and snap a picture. Because I was on a pretty strict grocery budget I only bought one bottle but now I’m having anxiety that they might have run out by now! Yikes! That was my ONLY shopping trip this week. Can you believe it??! I can’t! I did hit up Publix this morning on the way to see Princess and spent $70 … included was 6 packs of LaCroix Sparkling Water which was a terrific buy one get one free deal! 7 of those boxes were 15 count cartons and only the coconut flavored is a 12 pack. Sweet!
There should have been a little meal prep work going on again but nothing as good as last week which hopefully isn’t setting me up for failure ;-( … I only roasted 2 heads of broccoli … oops. I will need to saute green beans, boil some eggs and saute some mushrooms. I am going to stick with balsamic vinaigrette this week as I have a little mayo left and don’t feel like dealing with the ranch dressing today, even though its easy. Protein for the week will be a mix of chicken, beef and shrimp …
Here’s what I’m looking to make:
Monday – Looking at something shrimp-y like with hopes the Boy won’t be here 😉 … leaning towards the Island Style Shrimp which I will be re-sharing later this week! Tons of shrimp in the freezer (still) and the balance of ingredients in fridge … will pick up fresh herbs and radishes at produce store
Tuesday – Taco Tuesday … the Boy was a little upset we didn’t do Taco any day last week … sorry Kid, it was a rough week! Taco meat already made in freezer, balance of ingredients in pantry and freezers
Wednesday -Cauli-rice with General Tso’s Chicken … no I didn’t get around to it last week … I know! Hoping Princess is home by now! Cauliflower is in the fridge (planned on ricing it on Sunday as part of the meal prep), chicken from freezer
Thursday – Burgers on the grill … will use some of the turkey burgers (Costco) from the freezer along with a package of sliders that are in there too! Will also make sweet potato fries to go along. Will have to buy buns for those who insist
