We had more salmon on the menu this week – this time in the form of my Easiest Baked Salmon recipe!
It was actually a Sun Basket meal, but instead of searing the salmon like they suggested I wanted to use my favorite baked lemon salmon method, and while I was at it I filmed a little recipe video for it!
The video is not in the blog post just yet, but I did share it on Instagram if you want to check it out. 🙂
Another delicious dinner this week was last night’s seared chicken, sauteed veggies, and pasta.
The veggies were simply sauteed in a little oil with salt and pepper:
And as for the pasta, once it was cooked we topped it with some olive oil, a ton of lemon juice, Italian seasoning + garlic powder, and some freshly grated parmesan cheese. Such a good combo!

We also had a pretty epic homemade nachos night earlier this week – we were going to make tacos, but then we realized we forgot to get shells – whoops! Good thing we had lots of chips on hand. 😉
We topped the chips with some ground beef (cooked in Mexican spices), black beans, cheese, and cilantro, and put it in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese melted. So good! Plus some unpictured guac and bell peppers, too.
Unsurprisingly, Riese was really into this dinner. 😉
As for lunches this week, we did a lot of leftovers and fridge odds and end, plus some sandwiches.
One day I had a random bagel sandwich with cream cheese, dill, and turkey (smoked salmon would have been better but we didn’t have any). It was a yummy combo!
(More ideas in my healthy sandwich + wrap recipes post.)
We had grain salad bowls one day, too.
They had arugula + spinach, rice and quinoa, feta cheese, carrots and cucumber, chickpeas, pumpkin seeds, and homemade balsamic vinaigrette.
See my grain salad bowl recipes posts for more ideas there!
As for fitness this week, I did some morning walks/runs while chatting on the phone, and we had our usual Tues/Thurs morning virtual boot camp class too. My days are always more positive when they start with some movement, so I try to remember that as we plan out our weeks!
Have a nice weekend, my friends, and I will see you back here on Monday!
What’s the most delicious thing you ate this week?
