Monday - leftover Chinese food (we ordered in Saturday night)
Tuesday - chickpea/kale/chorizo/poached egg (I do this dish frequently - it's a favorite!)
Wednesday - vegetable pancakes (will shred sweet potatoes, zucchini, onion and carrots / mix with eggs, bit of flour and salt / cook in olive oil) w/ sour cream and/or applesauce. Might also do side salad of greens and pepitas and shaved Parmesan)
Thursday - grilled cheese and homemade tomato soup (for the latter - carrot/onion/celery/maybe clove of garlic, can tomatoes, stock (store bought bc we are (gasp) out of stock!), bay leaf, basil, some heavy cream to top it off)
Friday - away (maybe date night)
So here's a pic of last weeks fantastic butternut squash/italian sausage concoction which was a spot-hitter. Onions, sage and grated Parmesan. Um yeah.
And lastly, the Chicago marathon was yesterday. We went out to cheer on the runners. Though it doesn't seem like it from this pic, Big Girl internalized this phenomenon and later that afternoon she went on to run quite a distance of her own!
I will find out the exact distance via gmap pedometer, but she likely ran a half to a full mile (taking breaks, but always continuing ..until we finally told her to stop as it was dinner time.. which naturally resulted in tears (as most activities with her end these days).
Note; these pictures were completely natural (ie not staged). My hub took them as she approached him. I was slightly behind her but had been running with her for the majority. We talked about Halloween, which was her idea. I had front loaded our run with 3.5 miles.
