Happy Valentine’s day!! I hope you are having a great day, and no matter what your relationship status is, showing yourself a little extra love today.
You guys, feeding a boy is no joke. When John & I moved in together, I knew we’d (I’d), be doing more cooking to feed 2 people. But considering we both work from home and eat lunch at home most days, the leftovers definitely go quicker than I thought.
Mondays I always try to meal prep for, or at least make something really easy to throw together. I usually do a double run on Mondays, so I don’t want to spend a long time cooking. Chicken sausages, pasta, some kind of roasted veggie, and/or spinach and either pesto or red sauce is perfect. I still don’t like vegetables as much as a real adult should, so mixing them into pasta works really well for me.
Monday nights also consist of my air boots which are the BEST invention ever.
Preworkout oats make speed work better always. Oats, 1/2 scoop of protein powder, blackberries and a little (or a lot) of peanut butter.
I got this sandwich at lunch yesterday – chicken breast, gruyere cheese & granny smith apple slices. Perfection! I had it with a side salad, but definitely should have gotten soup.
John & I are celebrating Thanksgiving number 2 today. I saw some meme on the internet….
And thought it would actually be a lot of fun to have second Thanksgiving! We never get to enjoy leftovers for super long since we usually travel for turkey day, and it would be kind of fun to have mid week. So we decided to go for it!
John got me flowers yesterday for Not-Valentine’s day. And wine. The true way to my heart. The sweetest. Please keep your fingers crossed that our Not-Valentine’s day Thanksgiving turkey comes out ok.
We had roasted tri-color carrots for the first time last night and I loved them! So pretty and tasty. I roasted the potatoes for a while first (I honestly don’t remember how long, just put them in the oven and kept an eye on them), then added the carrots while I grilled the meat.
What are your favorite meals to make during the week?
