How ’bout them Cards?!?! Always an exciting post season with them and this year is no different! We bleed red in St. Louis and the whole town goes crazy this time of year. Itz no secret that we are the best fans in baseball, and for good reason, too! And how ’bout this little guy?
Oh yes, baby.
Alright, so itz Wednesday which means itz WIAW over at Peas and Crayons. This week’s topic is eating on the weekend vs. the week day. Do you eat differently? I do, for sure. Last week’s WIAW was a pretty accurate picture of my week day meals. Fast and easy and sometimes unphotographed. On the weekend, I have much more time to actually prepare some food. When that happens, it sets me up nicely for the week, too, so itz not just PB&J everyday for lunch.
Breakfast is the one meal that I actually do take time to prepare each day, weekends and week days alike. I need breakfast. And itz not called the most important meal of the day for nothin’! But really, I need to have a substantial breakfast, and cooking a couple eggs in the morning takes no time. I’ve still been loving my egg-sandwiches.
I cook two eggs in coconut oil, toast an English muffin, and spread jam all over for my eggwich. Over the weekend, I bought a package of Thomas’ Light Multi-Grain English muffins to switch things up, and I’m very impressed! These guys pack in 100 calories, 5 grams of protein, and 8 grams of fiber! Way better than regular bread!
On Sunday I made Buffalo Chicken Soup. I followed the recipe, and added in corn and quinoa. Then, I topped it with blue cheese crumbles, and made a batch of corn muffins for the side. Absolutely delicious.
It made a huge batch, so I’ve actually been taking it to school for lunch this week. Since I pump during lunch, I don’t have time to heat it up. I eat it cold on top of shredded lettuce and plain Greek yogurt mixed in. It turns out not to be soup anymore, but it’s still really good, light, spicy, and very filling.
Jonny made this Crock Pot Lasagna that we’ve been loving lately. That, too, made a large amount, so our fridge has been nicely stocked this week!
The lasagna is super simple to make and is made with whole wheat noodles, cottage cheese, turkey meat, a little mozzarella, spinach, and red sauce.
Itz really amazing how far a little food prep goes for the week. This was the first time I’d cooked in quite some time, and it felt good. I do love cooking, but it has definitely taken a backseat among all the craziness lately.
There’s been no shortage of dessert; I just haven’t been taking pictures of all the sweets I’ve been eating. Most recently itz been cream cheese brownies with triple berry jam baked in. Mmm.
How about you? Do you eat differently on the weekends compared to the week days?
