Week of Eats

by agirlandhermutt on November 3, 2011

Hello folks! Today is my Friday and I have never been so happy to see a fake Friday. Ya buddy! <—Jersey Shore anyone?! Pauly D fans unite!

This week I was out and about during the week quite a bit and will continue to be over the weekend, so when planning my menu on Sunday I had to be pretty strategic. I not only wanted to use up all the groceries I had, but also didn’t want to cook every single day.  I like to do most of my cooking Sunday and divide it up for lunch or dinner for a few days in the week. That way I just have to cook up some sides and I’m good to go! Leftovers LOVE!

Here is what this week’s eats looked a little like…

Broccoli Cheese Soup from my new favorite recipe magazine, Weight Watchers Four Ingredient 10 Minute Recipes. 

  

Blue Cheese Olive Stuffed Chicken w/ Garlic Mashed Blue Potatoes and Sautéed Spinach.<—All recipes from the same magazine above. Good buy Mom & Dad!

  

Spicy Turkey Sauce over whole grain pasta w/ sautéed garlic spinach and grape tomatoes.

  

Oh, and there was some serious snacking going on with these roasted pumpkin seeds. I used the same recipe from my Halloween Recipe Roundup.

I’m sure you are wondering what the cute little pumpkin looks like where I got these seeds. Ready for this?

  

Ugh. The original idea was super cute Hello Kitty. I was carving her little bow all nice and pretty then snip…all gone. My great carved pumpkin became just a big ol’ pumpkin with a hole in it after my little knife slipped and cut Hello Kitty’s face straight off.

Eh. At least there were seeds to enjoy afterwards.

Hope you guys are having a good week and that your carved pumpkin was more successful than mine. Not very hard really. ;)

Random poll: Red or Gold fingernails for the weekend?

GOLD! All the way!! I have gold on my toenails right now and I love it!

I will have to check out that magazine. I just re-joined WW this week and could definitely benefit from looking at some simple meals and NOT have to calculate everything out!
