Not gonna lie — feeling blah right now. Stressed out over the puppy…the piggies…and on top of things — my boss was on vacation this week — and I REALLLLLLLY wanted to do a good job when he was gone because I feel like I have been sucking lately!
Now, it is my Friday (Thursday night) — and I feel good about this week. Despite everything — hopefully I did a good job!
It’s Meal/Cookup Prep Time, and to be honest, I don’t want to cook. We all have these moments where it’s tough to find the motivation.
Honestly, I’m so tired, I just want to sleep all weekend (which I most likely will!)
Therefore, I’m going to try to stick to a simple recipe for next week’s meals — yet still focusing on being as healthy as possible!
If you haven’t seen Ina’s show, I would recommend it! She’s an Italian cook, so she likes her pasta, but she makes A LOT of things that either are Paleo, or can easily be made Paleo!
She also has her own garden where she grows a lot of the ingredients used in her cooking, along with fresh herbs, and she makes an effort to shop local — which is a “thumbs up” in my book.
I am THINKING/CONSIDERING making this sausage/grapes into cabbage rolls! And maybe slow-cooking everything and making some sort of sauce.
Nervous but excited to maybe make this recipe my own!
This will serve as next week’s Dinner@Work.
As for breakfast, I want something I can pack up and eat quickly at work, because with the puppy, I haven’t had time to eat breakfast at home.
I decided upon quiche, because it is SO RIDICULOUSLY EASY, and I can make up a pan of quiche and slice it every morning and pack it up to eat at work.
I happen to have some shrimp on hand, so I am hoping to incorporate that in some way.
Otherwise, this will just be filled with veggies.
I happen to have an excess of eggs on hand, so it will be nice to use them up!
I might make a smoothie and keep it REALLY simple and healthy!
I happen to have quite a bit of chili leftover from the work week — as well as greens (collards and kale) — so I’m hoping to snack on that this weekend.
I’m also CONSIDERING making THIS RECIPE I featured on “Daily Delicious” this week — but I’m afraid it won’t last long!
Cheers to the weekend!!!
