We had such a nice weekend celebrating my birthday and Mother's Day. I'm going to keep this short and sweet..
...Friday - if you follow me on Instagram you know that I tried Erin's recipe for Mediterranean Stuffed Zucchini. Quite simply said - to die for. It's the perfect summer dinner. It's easy. It's super healthy (and CLEAN!) And absolutely delish. Mine didn't look as pretty as hers did but who cares...it tasted amazing and that's all that matters to me and ma belly! I'll probably be making this weekly- yeah it's THAT good.
...Saturday was my birthday!! 32 - when did I get so old?! Didn't I just turn 21 last year?!?! Anywho, I got a 7 mile run in first thing in the morning then spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon cleaning, while the hubs did some work outside. I know, I know - not very exciting - but hey, it's gotta get done. After that we visited with my friend Christina's family for a while. And then we headed to dinner with her and her husband later in the evening. It was a low key but fun day - it doesn't get any better than that!!
...After a quick work out Sunday morning, we headed to my in-law's for the afternoon to celebrate Mother's Day with everyone. Always so much delicious food and, of course, wonderful company!! After that, we headed to dinner at Tom Wahl's to celebrate Mother's Day with my parents, sister, and grandparents. More great food and great company <3
AND to round out a fantastic weekend, my sister surprised me with her amazing oatmeal chocolate chips cookies. Guess I'll just have to mention them monthly on the blog so she makes them for me all the time!! So freakin' delish!
And to end this not so short post...here's our menu for the week (nothing exciting or new this week unfortunately!):
Monday - I have dinner plans with a friend so Matt has to fend for himself
Tuesday - Crockpot pulled pork, mixed veggies
Wednesday - Salad
Thursday - Baked chicken hummus (we didn't end up having this last week), spinach, cauliflower
Friday - Ham, roasted sweet potatoes, sauteed brussel sprouts
Saturday - birthday dinner with my mom and dad
Sunday - Breakfast for dinner (either eggs with sweet potato hash or pancakes!)
