How is everyone finding themselves on this Monday morning? If you were having too much fun this weekend to hop on the internet (and my blog) you can check out what I had to say yesterday if ya feel like it. If not, that is A-OK, too!! 🙂
I was able to get some meal planning done this weekend which is always nice!! I have been so much better about it than I used to but some weeks I could certainly do better. I am pretty much excited for my menu this week as I think I have some yummy dinners in my future!!
We are going to start with last nights dinner because it was downright tasty!!!
Turkey Sloppy Joes Baby!!!
This recipe is one that I have made several times and it continues to be a hit. It is super delicious and comes together in about 30 minutes. The original recipe actually calls for it to go in the slow cooker but let me tell you, it works just as well on the stove top!! I don’t know what it is but something about this messy meal just makes me happy. I think because it takes me back to childhood. I mean, who didn’t like sloppy joe night as a kiddo?!
To complete the meal, I roasted up some ranch red potatoes!! Mmmmmm, mmmmm good!!
Meal Plan: Week of February 25th
- Monday: Fiesta Chicken with Rice and a green salad
- Tuesday: Homemade Chicken Nuggets with Sweet potato fries
- Wednesday: Quinoa Fried Rice
- Thursday: Crock Pot Pulled Pork served with broccoli and roasted red potatoes
- Friday: Apricot Chicken with roasted Brussel Sprouts
I may change some of the days around based on what I am in the mood for but you get the basic idea!!!
I am still debating about whether I am ready to return to it today or not. I am cautiously optimistic that I am starting to feel better but I don’t want to overdue it and set myself back. I still have quite a bit of congestion and my ear is still stopped up but my chest doesn’t feel nearly as tight. I am thinking I will play it by ear(no pun intended!!) as see how I feel this afternoon. If my energy is up, I will pop in a Jillian Michael’s or Brooke Burke video and if not, I will just sit on my couch and be lazy.
Except not really, because I have a house to clean. That is exercise in itself!!
Do you like sloppy joes? How about as a child?
