Hello everyone. I hope you had a wonderful week. It’s been freezing here in Edmonton. Like, -40 deg. C freezing. But the good news is, it’s going to be much warmer next week.
Meal planning is a great way to organize your meals for the week ahead. You also save time and money in the supermarket! And of course, planning ahead helps you stick to your goals! Click here for my guide to meal planning.
More good news – I lost another pound! The smoothies were all delicious, so I’m going to keep going with the three I chose last week (click here to see those) until I’ve run out of frozen fruit. The Coconut Mocha Java Frappe was also very delicious.
I managed to drink 2 litres of water every day with ease, and I found myself drinking an extra litre in the last couple of days. I have more energy since drinking more water.
My menu changed a bit this weekend as hubby is making an unexpected appearance (he’s a long-haul truck driver and wasn’t supposed to be back until late next week), so I’m going to make a roast pork on Saturday and use the leftovers for a lovely chop suey.
Next week is all about comfort food. The Butternut Risotto with Leeks was to die for – real comfort food – so I decided to have it again this week.
Monday : Vege Burgers
Tuesday : Unstuffed Cabbage Bowls (This is going to become part of hubby’s truck meals)
Wednesday : Butternut Risotto with Leeks
Thursday : Chop Suey (from leftover pork roast) – from my recipe book The Looneyspoons Collection
Friday : Meatloaf (another truck meal) – also from my recipe book The Looneyspoons Collection
Saturday : Home made pizza
Sunday : Pork chops, sweet potato, beans and carrots.
