Another week of our new normal begins…
Let’s start things off with a picture of the rose bush in our backyard – it is exploding and so beautiful! I dropped off a bouquet of the roses for my mom yesterday for mother’s day. 🙂
Matt and Riese brought me breakfast in bed yesterday for mother’s day – it was very sweet!
And hilarious because Riese kept saying: “Happy Earth Day mommy!” She was a little confused by the whole thing. 😉
We spent the rest of the morning out on the trails! We walked to a small neighborhood trail near us. Riese insisted on wearing her “Super Riesey” outfit – a wonder woman cape and her helmet. 😉
For lunch we had more brunch-y food – a broccoli and parmesan quiche with some lemon-y greens (from Stomping Ground in Del Ray), plus some unpictured canned pineapple because we are all out of fresh fruit!
I ordered an Aldi delivery via instacart yesterday afternoon – excited to have some fresh produce around again for the week.
We ate a lot of pizza this weekend – we decided to order some on Friday night (plus BBQ chicken wings for me and spicy chicken wings for Matt, and some salad to share) and then had the leftovers for dinner on Saturday night.
On Friday, I mostly ate the wings and salad and just a little pizza, but Saturday I went 100% pizza.
For dinner last night, we made a Blue Apron meal – a yummy chicken with barley (love how chewy it is!), arugula, fennel, and pear with a vinaigrette. It was simple and tasty! I love a good grain salad bowl.
We also had a yummy roasted curry salmon with sweet potatoes and snap peas for lunch one day this weekend – another Blue Apron meal from last week that we hadn’t gotten around to making yet.
Really good flavor – all three of us loved the salmon!
One other meal from the weekend worth mentioning involved these Dr. Praeger’s quinoa and black bean veggie burgers! I forgot to get a photo of the meal, so here is the box instead, partly for myself to remember I liked these next time I see them at the store!
Delicious – definitely recommend them. The flavor reminded me a bit of my super old (but awesome) recipe for Black Bean Pumpkin Veggie Burgers (<– the recipe calls for only pantry staples if you leave out the parsley and use canned pumpkin).
Besides some nice family walks, we also got in another fun live virtual workout class with Matt’s brother Drew this weekend – Riese joined us for the warm up and then enjoyed watching some Mr. Rogers.
Speaking of: Matt and I finally watched the Mr. Rogers movie (the one with Tom Hanks) on Friday night and loved it – so good!
And that’s all I have for you today!
Stay tuned – I have an intuitive eating while working from home post coming on Wednesday. See you back here then – and if you have any specific things you want to make sure I address in that post, please let me know!
