Did you miss me yesterday? Just kidding, but I did take an unplanned day away from the blog. Work has been really busy and I was exhausted so I decided to take one thing off my to-do list and hit the sack early on Monday night.
OK, enough with my excuses. Let’s get to the workout section of this post. I was feeling ambitious yesterday so I put this quick upper body workout together with the intent of building strength. Each exercise is performed in two sets. The first set with a heavier weight. I used 10 lbs. The second set with lighter weights.I used 5 lbs.
Now, for the meal planning portion of this post. The actual planning of the meals is going great–the cooking, not so much. This week has been one heck of a fail in terms of cooking, but since I like to keep things honest around here I’m going to share my endeavors anyway.
Sunday, I tried to make pizza, but for whatever reason the dough we bought just wouldn’t rise. Brian and I make homemade pizza all the time and we’ve never run into this issue before so we just chalked it up to bad dough and ordered out.
Monday, I went to make balsamic chicken with roasted tomatoes, but when I opened my pint of grape tomatoes I realized some of the tomatoes were moldy even though I had bought them the day before! Ok, so that’s some bad luck and shame on me for not checking the crate thoroughly. I ended up making plain old chicken with mushrooms and peppers as a side (those were supposed to be the toppings on Sunday’s pizza)
You may not be able to tell from this picture, but I burnt the chicken pretty badly. I also smoked up the kitchen, but thankfully the fire alarm for the entire condo complex did not go off, which has happened to me in the past. So there’s a win!
Tuesday night I worked a little later than usual and came home ready to make grilled cheese stuffed with mushroom, onion and Gouda, but when I came in the door Brian told me he was on his way out. There was a last minute school board meeting planned and he was asked to attend. So, I scrapped plans to make anything and just had an egg and cheese sandwich on an english muffin.
Lets hope tonight brings a yummy home cooked meal with no mishaps!
Do you like to cook? Anyone else occasionally set off the fire alarm?
