Eat the Freezer Month: Week 2

An update on how we did on our goal to clear out our freezer this week.  I am not including pictures this week for two reasons (1) I lost the SD card in my phone (long and boring story) and (2) the bad lighting made most of the food look like dog food, even on my dslr.  Except the pesto dish - that looked like dog vomit (red tomatoes + green pesto = not appetizing brown sauce).  Luckily, they all tasted good (even the pesto).

Monday: Veggie burgers (freezer) with harvest medley grains cooked in chicken stock (freezer) and kale.  It very closely resembled this meal.  I broke rule number 2 by buying the kale but (a) they're my rules, I can break them if I want to and (b) I was feeling like I needed some leafy greens.

Tuesday: Pasta with chicken (freezer), mushrooms, pesto (freezer), and tomatoes.

Wednesday & Thursday: Pork steaks (freezer) with potatoes and green beans (freezer).

And berries (freezer) topped a lot of yogurt again this week!

To prevent this from being the most boring blog post ever, some other updates:

  • I'm using duolingo to learn some french before my trip.  Have I mentioned that I am going to Paris in May? I don't think I have.  Kevin is not, I am going with my mom and sister. #nohusbands #nokids.  This will make three times in the first half of 2014 that I leave Kevin to go off on my own (DC, plus an upcoming weekend to Philly, and Paris).  I'm going to have to get him a husband of the year plaque.  And hire a dogwalker so he doesn't have to do all the work at home.
  • I'm sure you will all be shocked to know that I decided not to run the half-marathon at the end of April.  I debated it, but have been averaging one 3 mile run a week so it is not going to happen.  Maybe in the fall?
  •  Roxy has good periods and bad periods in terms of pain.  Unfortunately, it seems like we are entering into a bad period.  She is limping a lot and we've upped her medications to compensate.  I hope this is just the down part of her cycle and not our new normal.
Probably still the most boring blog post ever, huh? Sorry about that.
