Midweek Checkin

 

Pepperoni Pesto PizzaYesterday I was having A DAY.  My site was having issues connecting to the server which meant that anything I wrote wasn’t getting saved.  I couldn’t upload pictures either.

This on top of how much I’m starting to hate my iPhone and I’d had it.  I shut everything off and watched SVU until it was dinner time.  Then I made us a pizza, had a gin drink and called it a night.

The pizza was an all white flour crust (yesterday was not a day for a whole wheat crust) with a kale and sundried tomato pesto.  Topped with cheese, pepperoni (Applegate Farms) and banana peppers.

I had leftovers of the pesto and that’s what inspired me to make the pizza.

Earlier in the day for lunch we had the pesto on some noodles.

Yellow squash noodles with the pesto and leftover shredded chicken.  The pesto is this recipe with some marinaded sundried tomatoes added in for extra flavor.

Last week I did awful with meal planning and prepping.  I had two events to attend and there is a definite correlation with us going out and then grabbing something to eat on the way home.

This week, while I desperately need to go to the grocery store, I have been better about planning and prepping.  I’m going to hit the grocery store today, hopefully it won’t be too slammed with people stocking up for Labor Day.

Tomorrow is going to be spent cooking and prepping for the weekend so we have plenty of stuff to see us through.

How has your week been going?  How are you doing with your meal planning and prepping?

    I have been a smoothie making machine this week. I got a blender and have been learning to make smoothies that hubby will enjoy. So far so good. Sneaking in yogurt, fruit, almond milk :)
    I have taken my lunch twice this week and that is much cheaper and healthier than eating out. Back to baby steps to doing better!
