Happy Monday everyone! Turned out to be a pretty busy week last week. We had our last week of school, my oldest was home for 4 days with strep throat and I found out on Wednesday evening that I would be able to attend the BlogHer Food Conference here in Austin.
Luckily my mother was visiting, so I had childcare taken care of, but still had tons to do on Thursday to get ready for the conference. I drove downtown to the conference hotel very early on Friday morning, stayed Friday night at the hotel and got back home very late Saturday night.
Needless to say, it was a very whirlwind trip! (I am still recovering.) I had a great time, met lots of new people, learned a couple of things, found a few new blogs to follow, and came home with 2 huge bags full of swag from all the vendors. I even won a weber grill in a giveaway from Dole foods!
For the menu this week, you will see a couple of repeats, since I didn’t cook Thursday through Sunday. I just pushed that part of the menu over to this week. (You may also notice that most of the meals on this week’s menu are”skinny-fied” – I also brought home a couple of extra pounds from the BlogHer Food Conference.)
Monday: Lasagna Skillet (lightened up)
Tuesday: Quinoa and Turkey Taco Salad w/ Avocado “Dressing”
Wednesday: We are still doing gymnastics on Wednesday afternoon, so we will probably eat while we are out and about running errands
Thursday: Taco Stromboli
Friday: Skinny Parmesan Crusted Chicken
Saturday: Skinny Fettuccine Alfredo
Sunday: Hamburgers and Hotdogs and maybe some more Texas Caviar to go along with the burgers.
