Back in Action...

Oh my goodness friends, it's been a while!  When I posted last Noah was home sick with the flu.  That stuck with the poor kid for 2 days.  Then Sarah got it, then I got it. times were NOT had!  We all seem to be back on track now, though.  Needless to say, my meal plan pretty much went out the window last week. So did hockey games, dance class and Zumba.  Eeek!  Looking through the photos on my camera I seem to have some from last week and all from the week before so this will be a bit of a hodge podge post.  So 2 weeks past the plan looked like this:
Turkey sausage, sautéed red peppers, green beans and millet.....
Roasted turkey breast, peas, polenta ans some smoky peach chipotle dipping sauce......
Lasagna, for the fam.  I had eggs on toast with mortadella.....
Thursday was pork chops, corn and basmati rice.....
And Friday was baked salmon fillets with broccoli and quinoa...
Pretty good week!  I've got to admit, I don't eat pork chops much and Thursday's dinner reminded me why.  I just don't like them!!  Guess I thought I'd give them another shot, but I won't be eating them again any time soon.

I don't even remember what last week was suppose to look like!  Here's what I got pictures of:
Noah had an out of town hockey game on Tuesday and I always try to get some sort of pasta into him before a game.  This is brown rice pasta which is always what I prepare for myself.
Whoa....dark photo!  This was Wednesday's dinner, which we ate late.  Well, 7pm is late for us!  We were out for this again...

 ....but over my lunch hour I put chicken thighs, sliced mushrooms, 2 chopped red bell peppers and a can of tomato sauce in the crock pot on low.  When we got back the kids ate theirs over leftover pasta while Jason and I had ours over quinoa.  It tasted SO much better than it looks!  I'm certain we had turkey sausage again on Thursday, but there doesn't seem to be any photo evidence!  Friday we decided to go out to dinner, but my camera was sitting pretty on the dining room table.  DOH!

I got some cool mail last week, too!  First up we have some Method dish and hand soap:
I haven't tried either yet, but I can't wait to get them started.  Method is one of my favourite brands of hand soap and I'm eager to try the dish soap.  These have seasonal scents, too!  Frosted Fir and Candy Cane!   Thank You, Method!!!  I also received my FREE Gevalia coffee for our Tassimo.

Somehow I managed to get to their Facebook Page before supplies were out! Too bad I'm blogging from Blogger right now and can't figure out how to rotate this picture!!!  Anyhow, this coffee is STRONG, but good.  I'll definitely buy more when I run out.

So, I think that's all I've got for now.  As always, you can check my meal plan out on my Facebook Page.....What's your favourite meal been this past month?  Or is it something that you will be eating over Thanksgiving?

Bye for now!!


  1. Hope you're all on the mend now, Krista! It's been going around to everyone lately... My kids & hubby all had it too.

  2. Ughhhhh! Kay and I both got the flu, so I so feel for you! I love that eggs always make a good meal (breakfast, lunch & dinner!). Im not a pork chop fan either. Favorite meal?? Peanut soup!

  3. Oh, i love method products! I use their cleaners for everywhere in my apt and the hand-soaps too!

    I hope that the family is recovered and feeling better. The flu is the worst feeling ever!

  4. Glad you are all better! Your "old" meals look great!

    I've really been enjoying sweet potatoes prepared different ways.

  5. glad to know that you three are recovered now.
    I also don't like pork, at all, in any form, it has a funny smell!
    great packages! haven't seen method before, looks interesting! :)

  6. I'm glad to hear that you and the kiddos are feeling better now! Such delicious meals, Krista...your family is lucky to have a superstar mama!

  7. I went to my brother's hockey game last weekend (and I'll admit, it was the first one I'd been to in several years!!) and I thought about you! It was actually REALLY fun. HE is a freshman now and the last game I went to was when he was maybe in middle school. BOY have things changed!

    Best meal I have planned THIS month?! On SAturday I'm making pumpkin stuffed shells. I hope they are as delicious as they sound.

  8. i need to start adding more proteins like you do- i really love the balance you have with your meals. sometimes i get too one-sided with the carbs but i know that whenever i make an effort to add more protein in, i avoid that "okay, time to sleep now" feeling after lol.

    btw, i would love to have one of those stationary skating surfaces/ "skating treadmills" in my home. can u imagine the fun that could be had on one of those! haha

    xoxo <3

  9. You should try smaller plates! Your food looks lonely.
    Did you poach those eggs? How was that?


I'd love to hear from you!! Please leave a comment!
