Mmm Salsa

No post for a long time. A lot has happened since then, including a brief hospital stay on my wedding anniversary, a beach vacation, a summer filled with picture taking at various local places, becoming a member of a reunion planning committee for alumni of my HS band, almost the entire OSU football season, a doggie dew claw snag (including a trip to the vet for antibiotics and pain meds), and the planned start-up of the 2009 Copper Christmas at work.

The latest news is that we visited our old college roomie, Emily, over the weekend in Cinci. Being the awesome person that she is, she took us to Jungle Jim's grocery store where we found a molcajete for $15!!!! There are like $50 from William-Sonoma, so we were really excited to find one much cheaper. And we bought 2, one for a gift. So, the plan is to make some salsa later this evening. I'm so excited.

Its been a while since I've posted a menu, or made one for that matter. So, I need to do that for this week. As soon as I decide what to have, I will post it.

Menu week of 6-8-09

This week I'm going to try making my own hummus. We'll see how it turns out. I am going to try to eat a little more healthy from now on. We are thinking about going to the beach in August and I am definitely not in swimsuit shape. So, the plan is to eat better food, frequent the gym more (since I am paying for my membership), and have healthy snacks between meals to keep my metabolism going, oh and just eat less in general. I always over eat. I eat until I am stuffed and thats not really good if you would like to lose a little weight. So, hopefully here is to a healthier summer.

Monday: Chicken basil feta pizza

Tuesday: Hummus and pita chips

Wednesday: lemon pepper chicken salad

Thursday: Baked chicken and veggies

Friday, Saturday, Sunday: I'll be in Put-In-Bay all weekend for a girls weekend. My friend Emily invited me to come along, and no boys aloud; sorry Jared ;)

It looks like a very chickeny week, but I plan to buy the 5 pack of individually wrapped chicken breasts, so rather than freeze the ones I wouldn't normally use and find them in the freezer a year later, I decided I would use them all this week.

Have a delicious week!

Menu week of 3-29-09

Wow! it has been 3 weeks since my last post. I am falling behind, but I'll use the excuse that I've been busy, which is sort of true. Anyway my sister and her boyfriend came to visit Wednesday through yesterday. We visited the botanical gardens and the cleveland zoo. It was fun. I had a butterfly that was really photogenic at the botanical gardens. He kept posing for me, but refused to pose for my sister ;)

I helped out with the Kenston Science Olympiad Invitational last weekend. It was a lot of fun. I'll definitely be helping with that again next year. The weekend before, we went to the ACHA hockey tournament and watched Penn State cheat OU out of the semi finals, but its ok because they just got beat in the semis anyway.

Its feels like spring cleaning in the kitchen this week. I'm using up stuff that I've had for a bit just to get it out of my cupboards. Well, here is this week's menu:

Monday: Chicken soup; I have some frozen chicken, broth, and rice I need to use up
Tuesday: Kung Pao chicken; My mom gave me a box meal a month ago to try and I just never made it
Wednesday: leftover chicken soup
Thursday:Hamburger and Pasta salad; had a box of pasta salad ;)
Friday: Spaghetti; bought spaghetti at Sam's Club, need I say more? also bought a few sauces when they were on sale

Have a delicious week!

Monday: Chicken curry and white rice

Tuesday: BW3s for free wing tuesdays

Wednesday: Hummus ad cucumber slices on pita chips

Thursday: Hamburgers and chips

Friday: Spinach pasta salad

Saturday & Sunday: out of town, prob eat on the road.

Have a delicious week!
