3 out of 4 Dinners at Home

So, 2 short of the goal of 5, but the upside of the situation is we made all the meals we had purchased food for. The intent had been to grocery shop mid week for the other 2 dinners so we would waste less food, something that had been happening when we bought a week at the whole time  (not wanting stuff anymore, getting invitations to go out, etc).

So Thursday we had grilled chickens salads. I had marinated the chicken in San-J Tamari GF Teriyaki Sauce before it was grilled. We sliced them up and had them on top of Taylor Farms Organic Baby Greens with each of our preferred toppings - for me that meant kalamata olives, mandarin oranges, shredded Swiss, and Newman's Own Lite Cranberry Walnut Dressing. The husband had Western dressing, wonton strips, and shredded Swiss.

Friday we met some friends at Spice, a local Thai places that has a pretty extensive GF menu - I had the Pineapple Fried Rice with pork... the leftovers made a lovely breakfast this morning. Saturday we spent the day with my FIL and had dinner with him at the local pizza joint, which amazingly has GF pizza. Not the most healthy thing but it is one of two places I can eat near where he he lives with driving 30 min.

This week I have enough dinners for all week because they were easy to plan ahead for, something I am trying to get better at.
Sunday - Benihana Style Fried Rice (picture & recipe in a separate post)
The rest of the options in no particular order - Parmesan Ranch Chicken, Chili, BLTs, Blackened Fish Tacos, and Skillet Lasagna. We will pick what we want on any given day - almost a guarantee one of these will get dropped due to a work holiday party on Thursday.

Also, 2 out of 3 workouts of the first week of Couch to 5K program down - was planning on doing day 3 today but the husband is on the crappy of a cold so we are taking a rest. We are planning on M, W, F & Sat or Sun for training days this week.

The one goal I haven't made any head way with is taking my lunch (only one day last week). GRR!

Have a great week everyone!
