Icy Conditions + Desire to spend approximately ZERO dollars = we didn’t do much this week. Besides walking the dogs (which was an absolute nightmare) I didn’t leave the house. Except for Monday when we went grocery shopping and then I broke a jar of salsa in the garage when we got home. That was fun.
Still, there are things to share! I suppose.
Passed out on the job:
Eats from the week: Turkey BLTs, Grilled Cheese & soup, Taco Stuffed Zucchini Boats, Salsa Chicken.
I made Double Chocolate Chip Cookie bars that were delicious. I used this recipe but subbed white chocolate chips for semi-sweet chocolate chips. I baked them for 15-ish minutes. They’re gone already!
I also made slow cooker applesauce which is out of this world delicious. 12 apples + 2t cinnamon + 2 T lemon juice on HIGH for 4 hours. MmmmmMMmmm.
Wes is eating a LOT more ‘regular’ food which is pretty great, because I can just throw stuff on his tray and eat my own meal while he helps himself. Granted, he makes a MASSIVE mess, but it’s fun to see him do it. His current favorite is pb toast and bananas. Kid hoovers them in! Plus, he’s gotten a kick out of feeding the pups with his pb fingers.
And we did a LOT of riding on the car. (PS: Check out my Instagram for this week’s #WesOnWheels)
His second and third tooth (bottom left and top right) are making their way through so he’s gotten up in the middle of the night 2x this week. Luckily, he was easily calmed back to sleep. BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN IT WAS SO EASY FOR ME Y’ALL. (PS: Why do I say y’all? I’m not southern) Anyhoo…tonight I’m enjoying a glass of the good stuff.
And that’s it! We have no set plans for the weekend, so I’m hoping to just get in some good ol’ quality time with my guys. And maybe lots of shut eye.
I dropped a bag from my Target run the other night, obviously the one with a brand new jar of Teddy’s PB… I cried a little as I threw the entire brand new jar in the trash 😦 I haven’t had wine since Sunday… which probably explains why it’s only 9:40 and I’m ready for a glass.
Red wine FTW!! I had some Yellow Tail shiraz last night after teaching a killer spin class and it hit the spot! Now I want to make taco zucchini boats.
Mmmm those zucchini boats look amazing! Do you have a recipe for the slow cooker applesauce…or more directions, lol…like do you peel and chop the apples? It sounds amazing. I love #wesonwheels – cutest thing on instagram these days 😉
Those zucchini boats look good except for the fact that I don’t like zucchini haha. Hope you have a great weekend!
Hey, Where are you from? Pre-Canada?
Wes on Wheels… So cute! He looks like it’s about 16 already.
Southern California, Northern California, upstate NY and most recently Boston. My parents live in NY still so I call that home!
Those cookie bars look really dangerous! Aka I can’t make them because I have zero self control. Have a great weekend!
Wes on Wheels is life. 🙂 glad he’s enjoying more solid food now! Any gagging?
Nope! He’s taken some pretty big bites too! Just takes his time with chicken
