travel time...

This Thursday, I head to Utah for the long anticipated race. I am SO excited! I'm already sad when I think of leaving my kiddos (even just for a few days), but can hardly wait for a plane ride free of bottles, matchbox cars and coloring books. Not to mention 3 days without changing a diaper. ;) Thanks to my Mom, I get to spend the weekend with some of my very favorite people in the whole world--and run in an amazing race! Here is my meal plan for the week (the weekend's meals are adapted to either be made ahead of time, or are quick to throw together, to make it as easy on my Mom as possible!). And the next two weeks will be filled with driving to Virginia for Ashley's wedding, and spending time in Michigan with my brother and his family...so there may be a lack of posts. But I'll stay on top of this as much as I can, cause you can be sure that I'll be eating good food the whole time!

*Monday: Paninis--We'll use Ciabatta bread, add any veggies, cheese, or maybe some turkey, as well as a little balsamic vinegar, pesto, mustard, etc. Then since I don't have a sandwich press, I use my George Foreman to get a nice thin, crispy, juicy sandwich. Yum!

*Tuesday: Spinach Salad with Fruit, Almonds and Feta and a Trader Joe's Baguette

*Wednesday: Chicken Tacos

*Thursday: Lasagna Rolls, corn on the cob and Garlic Bread

*Friday: Broccoli Cheese Soup(just add cheese to the recipe), salad and rolls

*Saturday: Pizza Night!
*Sunday: Black Beans and Rice (top with green/purple onions, tomatoes, avocados, Cajun seasoning, shredded cheese, sour cream, cilantro, salsa, etc.)

P.S. Doesn't this look amazing??? When I get back, I am definitely finding a reason to make it...
