Weekly Menu

Hello ol’ friends.  Things have been cray-cray around here with the new baby.  I am HIGH on inspiration and LOW on time.  My priorities right now go something like, FEED CHILDREN, BATHE CHILDREN, BRING BIG KID TO SCHOOL, TRY TO WORK, TRY TO EXERCISE, TRY TO SLEEP, and REPEAT.  My lovely little blog has fallen off the immediate priority list for now, but I am still going to pop in now and then to say HI and to hopefully share and receive some inspiration.

This weekend we went to our 10th year law school reunion (??!!), and I was so flattered that so many of my classmates read this blog.  One of those lovelies said that she liked and wanted more weekly recipe ideas (holla Jamie!), so I thought I would stop by quickly and post this week’s recipes.  OperationLoseBabyWeight is in full force, so they are even more on the healthier side than usual….

Monday: Cooking Light Pasta Jambalaya (a superfast tried and true favorite).

Tuesday: Cooking Light Chipotle Sloppy Joes with cole slaw (another tried and true).

Wednesday: New Recipe!  Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken and green salad(suggestion from a BFF, I used reduced fat cream of chicken and sour cream, served in a tortilla with banana peppers and topped with salsa verde — it was AWESOME.  It will join our usual rotation!).

Thursday: New Recipe! Weight Watchers Spanikopita Quesadillas and sauteed zucchini and squash.

Friday: Cooking Light Brown Butter Gnocchi (a superfast vegetarian fave around here).

Saturday: Cooking Light Red Pepper and Tuna Pasta Salad (my first pasta salad of the season — it’s a good one!).

Happy cooking!  I’m hoping to be back (soon?) with a little reveal of the lamps for the nursery and an update on the bathroom facelift.  Also, we painters are repainting the kitchen, so a post bidding farewell to my fun and beloved orange kitchen will also be forthcoming. 

Things are coming together around here…slowly!  Miss you all!

P.S. Are you on Instagram?  Instagram is the new Pinterest.  Haha.  I am looking for more exciting people to follow.  Please find me so I can follow you: ada_marie!
