Don’t be afraid – it’s only a fish taco!

Breakfast today was leftover beef stew from last night, hard-boiled eggs, and avocado.  Lunch was salmon patties from Costco – heat for 3 min on each side in a skillet with olive oil.  I made “fish tacos” out of the patties with romaine lettuce leaves, diced tomatoes, broccoli slaw, a little mayo, and some hot sauce.  Rowan looks scared of the taco, but he chowed them down, despite his initial fears!  : )  For dinner I threw a bag of brussel sprouts in the microwave for 4 minutes, chopped them in quarters, chopped a package of bacon, and sauteed all together with already cooked chicken from TJ’s, vegetable blend, bell peppers and onions, pepper, a little sea salt, and a little chicken broth.

Happy Halloween!

This week has been crazy.  Two birthdays, Halloween, school parties, work, life… So, here is a little photo collage of how we survived – nutrition wise – even amongst the craziness.  We all pretty much lived on eggs cooked various ways (my deviled eggs are mayo, sea salt, pepper, dill, and red wine vinegar), chicken salad from Raleys, coleslaw made with cabbage, apples, and broccoli slaw, baby sweet potatoes from Traders that you cook right in the package, only takes 5 min in the microwave, tri-tip already cooked from Raleys (not sure about the quality or what they season it with, I felt kind of yucky after we ate it…) frozen green beans, and “all natural” hot dogs from Traders.  I’m happy for the weekend and we started this morning right with the last picture of eggs, bacon and raspberries.  Yum!  Happy Halloween!!
