Today has been quite the catch-up day. Between the full-time job, the part-time night job, Operation Beautiful, and marathon training, my weeks are starting to look just a little bit FULL. I tried to get all of my chores done today to make the rest of the week a tad easier.
Brunch (around 11) was Chobani pineapple (just as good as everyone says!), granola, and banana:
Then, I set to cleaning the house. Frankly, it looked like a bomb of dust had gone off in my living room.
I took a break and had a small roll that I snagged from Taste of the Nation last night. I dipped it in a little hummus:
I ate a really late lunch. I had two more of the free rolls with melted cheese, 1 cup of tomato sauce, and a salad:
Perfect for dipping!
I checked a TON of other tasks off my To Do list this afternoon. It was a tedious task but so worth it. I feel so accomplished!
I snacked on a plum:
And a mini bagel with Barney Butter:
Then, I went grocery shopping. I took my meal planner folder with me. I have to say that meal planning is really going well — I think there’s been better recipes on the blog for the last two weeks AND meal planning is making trips to the grocery store a lot easier.
I really only planned three meals this week, but two of them are casserole dishes that are designed to fed us throughout the upcoming week:
While shipping, I posted this Operation Beautiful note in the dog food aisle:
The first casserole dish for the week is vegetarian lasagna. My mom is so much better at making this than I am:
I layered the following veggies in my lasagna (stole the basic recipe from the back of the whole wheat lasagna noodle box):
- Yellow Squash
- Red Peppers
Yum! With a side of corn:
Must get to bed early tonight! Have a wonderful evening.
