Before I get started on the menu plan for today, let me share with you a few things I have learned in the past couple of days:
*Miss C has a crazy fear of bees. One flew by her yesterday while we were playing, and it sent her into hysterics! It did not sting her, just flew by. Poor girl was traumatized for the rest of the time and wouldn’t go more than a foot away from me. She actually clung to me the majority of the time we stayed out.
*Rose is not a hunting dog. (Nor is Bandit, but we already knew that). In the past few months a family of bunnies have built their home in our fenced in backyard. I am pretty sure Rose is oblivious to this fact. There was a hole a while back, but I cleared it out in hopes that the bunny would not come back. I checked it yesterday and sure enough it was full of bunny hair and there was movement in there. I don’t know how long until Rose finds them, but I am going to guess they have been hiding for a while.
*Making a meal for the crock pot ahead of time is pretty useless if you forget to tell the adult in charge at home when to put it out and start it. I prepped chicken parmesan this morning, popped it in the fridge, and forgot to leave a note for Hubs to put it in the crock pot and start it. I did not realize this until 2:30 in the afternoon, which was too late to call and have him start it. Oh well! I guess we have dinner prepped for tomorrow night instead!
*Since beginning my journey to a more fit lifestyle, I am constantly amazed at what my body is able to do. I push hard sometimes and am in awe of the strength that God has given me. I pushed hard today and broke a personal record. I ran a 10’03” mile. My typical pace is around 10’30”, so I shaved almost 30 seconds off my regular mile. I was *thisclose* to not running tonight, but I knew I had to, and I am glad I did it!
*I seriously have the most supportive and amazing friends and family around. I already knew this, but this past weekend has been proof that they are the best any girl could ask for! I know I wouldn’t have been able to reach my goals without them!
And now on to the menu plan…
Saturday– Chinese food out with my sister’s family
Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan Cheese Quesadillas
Crock pot chili Crock pot Chicken Parmesan
Wednesday– Chicken Fajitas
Friday– Homemade Pizza
Since we won’t have the chili this week, I will probably save it for the weekend or sometime next week. My spring break is next week, so I am hoping to try some cooking/baking things that I don’t get to do because I work full time. I would love to attempt to make bread from scratch or at least try to use the bread machine that my sister is letting me
store borrow while they are packing their house.
This week is definitely a nice and easy week to get me through the last week before spring break. I am looking forward to possibly grilling soon, but we desperately need a new grill. (Yes need. We have had our inexpensive grill for over 5 years and it is about on it’s last leg. I have it in our budget to start saving for once we get done saving for and purchasing our new lawn mower.)
