Menu Plan Monday 2015 #8

So, I won't lie, I started this post Sunday, but didn't get past the first sentence and inserting a couple of images. I have been so incredibly ill since last Tuesday. All I really managed to do was boss around the husband and teenager, watch Netflix, and go see a couple of movies...both of which I was so tired I almost fell asleep during them...but honestly Jupiter Ascending was just terrible and even hubby ranked 50 Shades as the better movie :P

So, now that I am feeling a bit better I will say the kiddo and hubby have kept this place running and have done whatever I request. They have sat through a many night of cereal or leftovers from the freezer for dinner or picking something up. I really appreciate the break but I am so ready to feel better.

Last week I accomplished nothing outside of catching up on Mad Men, catching up on Downton Abbey, starting House of Cards, and drinking insane amounts of Sleepytime Extra tea.

The rest of this week here is what I would like to accomplish:
  • Type up itinerary for a day in Brussels
  • Get back into light workouts
  • Cook dinner each night 
  • Plan a fun, but easy date night depending on how I feel
Since I got sick I only got in one workout from Week 2 of my Fit Tutor workouts so I will pick those back up and do some heavy walking and light jogging maybe.
Thursday: Walk around downtown with my friend, kiddo is out of school early so we will do a bike ride when she gets home to the forest
Friday: Day 1, Week 2 Fit Tutor, Walk
Saturday: Day 2, Week 2 Fit Tutor
Sunday: Day 3, Week 2 Fit Tutor, Walk

Thursday: Currant toast with peanut butter and bananas for the kiddo, creamy oatmeal for me
Friday: Currant toast with peanut butter and bananas
Saturday: Omelettes, bacon, toast, fruit
Sunday: Cheese crescents

Thursday: Apple-pb wrap with orange slices and chips for the kiddo, I will eat out
Friday: Superfood Crunch Salad with a slice of chicken breast, kiddo will eat out
Saturday: Panini's with veggie soup and salad
Sunday: Easy snacks: baguette with a new dipping sauce I found, smoked meats, fruit slices, cheese

Thursday: Glazed Pork Chops/Lentil burgers with home fries and green beans
Friday: Steak bites with gravy/black bean balls with carrots, wilted kale or creamed kale and potato rounds
Saturday: Date Night! If I feel good we will go down to an area of town we haven't explored much and grab dinner and go to a comedy show that is in English, if I still feel like I should rest (which will most likely be the case) we will just grab dinner and go for a walk around the canals downtown if it is nice, if it is crummy weather we will see a movie and get dinner at a nearby pub.
Sunday: Chicken Wings/cauliflower "wings" with salad and root veggie fries

This week is coming at you late, but at least it is all planned out. What have you been munching on this week?

Check out the parties over at Mommy Run Fast, Jill Conyers, and I'm an Organizing Junkie!


  1. Oh was Jupiter Ascending really that bad? I was excited for it, guess I'll wait for the dvd! Glad you're feeling better!

    1. Krista, I would definitely wait for DVD, we went because we have an unlimited movie pass and our TV set up at home really sucks which is why we got the movie passes lol But, the fight scenes were really, really long and the movie could have used to end about 30-45 minutes earlier than it did. Thanks, me too, got a solid night's sleep thanks to my awesome cough medicine so that is a bonus! :D
