I woke up feeling great today. Of course, that was at 7:30 this morning. I don't normally wake up that early, because I normally need to be up past 10 pm. Fortunately, I don't have to work today, so I can go to bed after I post this. And the whole getting up early thing will come in handy for making sure I get to the farmers market tomorrow.
I've done something new and different (for me, anyway) -- I've actually attempted to plan next week's menu. I'm going to stick with a breakfast casserole/breakfast salad combo every morning (but with turkey sausage from this recipe, and then I'm going to do a fish dish -- these salmon cakes (I would've called them salmon patties or salmon croquettes, but whatever), crockpot chicken, and burrito bowls, plus I'm going to use the butternut squash I bought last weekend that I haven't cooked yet to make this butternut squash casserole type thing, some cauliflower soup, and mashed cauliflower. Plus assorted vegetables, whatever I pick up at the farmers market tomorrow or get from the store. I think that's enough to get me through most of the week. (I cannot believe how much food I seem to be going through!) If I need other protein sources, I have some frozen chicken I can use. And I seem to have to go to the store for a mid-week veggie run each week too, for the stuff that I eat most, or that doesn't keep as well.
Now to the food:
|breakfast -- egg casserole, peach, breakfast salad, coconut flakes|
|Lunch -- chicken salad (roast chicken, grapes, half an apple, home made mayo), on salad greens, with the rest of the apple|
