I’ve come to the realization with this Whole 30 thing that it’s ALWAYS good to cook more than you think you’ll need, because leftovers are a life saver. I love to cook (obviously) but right now it seems like all I do is cook and do dishes, cook and do dishes, cook and… you get the idea. Next week I will be MUCH better prepared and try to prep a few meals ahead of time.
Anywayyyyy. I dropped the kids off at school this morning and then came home to a quiet, empty house. In other words, heaven. I turned on the Today show and got to cookin’ this sweet potato, apple and pancetta hash. Instead of pancetta I used bacon, and we were out of onions so I just threw in some onion powder. It’s a little time consuming- lots of chopping and stirring- but it made a BIG batch. So breakfast tomorrow is covered!
Served with an over easy egg. At least it was supposed to be over easy. I suck at eggs… isn’t that supposed to be a no brainer??
For lunch I had sauerkraut with TJ’s spicy Italian chicken sausage, carrots, guac and leftover bruschetta:
I picked up dinner for a friend at Liberty Burger tonight, and while I was there I grabbed a couple of kid’s meals for Jack & Isla. I haven’t had any cravings since starting the plan, but it’s SO HARD to not just grab bites when I’m prepping their meals! Tonight I had to stop myself from snagging a few french fries. It’s not even that I actually want the french fry or mac & cheese (ok maybe I want the mac & cheese), it’s just such an automatic response. Weird and annoying.
Brian and I had leftovers for dinner. Yea leftovers! Never thought I’d say that. Spaghetti squash with meatballs, and roasted broccoli.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
