Happy Hump Day! And What I Ate Wednesday!
As I mentioned, the past few days have been full of moving and unpacking. One thing I came across while taking things out of boxes is that, over the past few years, I’ve ripped recipes out of magazines and have done nothing with them. I decided to hole punch them all and put them into a binder.
I sorted the recipes by Breakfast, Lunch/Dinner, Snacks/Dessert, and a Miscellaneous section for pages that have multiple types of recipes included. I am pretty pleased with myself.
While I was being ambitious, I decided to start a new habit: meal planning before each week begins.
I created a table and got to work:
I wrote the meal for each day and then filled in the ingredients I needed to buy for each meal. I then took the paper to the grocery store and got to work. Note to self: next time bring a pen to check off each item!
From there, I brought my belongings home and got to work on my first meal since the move! I hung up my magazine recipe and got to work!
Cheesy Chicken Meatball-and-Tortellini Soup for the win! So easy and so delicious! Thanks, Fitness Magazine! I did substitute turkey meatballs for the chicken meatballs (still haven’t figured out where they might be – gotta love new grocery stores!), and it was still mighty tasty!
Speaking of yum: check out the PB Crave giveaway for free PB Crave for a year!!! The deadline to enter is January 20, 2013 at 11:59:59 p.m. ET so make sure to enter! Even the Chief White House Chef proclaims PB Crave Peanut Butter is “One of the best he’s ever tasted” !
