foodstuffs kitchen aid

Eric and I went to the Urban Harvest farmers market over the weekend, which was good; we were overdue! We stocked up on enough meat to last us for two weeks, plus picked up two yummy breads, eggs, and Brussels sprouts. Here’s our meal plan for this week.


Nothing too special in this area! However, I feel compelled to mention that last night I read an article about cooking bacon perfectly so I put it into practice this morning (by letting the bacon sit out and then putting it on a room temperature griddle) and…huge improvement! Try it!


Leftovers, per usual.


Beer brats with Brussels sprouts and buttered bread

Baked egg boats

Grilled steak with Brussels sprouts and bread

Grilled BBQ chicken + vegetables + bread

Hamburgers + vegetables

Pesto chicken pasta + Caesar salads

Pizza + Caesar salads

It’s a lot of the usual suspects this week, but, well, you’re going to have that sometimes.


Well, I missed a day of my heart and hip opening challenge last week. I think I fell asleep at like 8:00 or something and then, after waking up briefly around 10:00, was kind of disoriented and over it. Ah well. I feel like the challenge is progressing quite well otherwise. While I’d really like to focus on getting my hips to square in Warrior I for the remainder of the challenge (because whyyyyyyy won’t they?!), I’m excited about the fact that I’m finally able to do a strong crescent lunge!

Aside from the missed yoga session, I hit my other fitness goals: three longer workouts (three yoga sessions plus a walk) and lots of hip and heart openers on the other days. I didn’t go to any workout classes, but I’m proud of myself for at least trying two new yoga podcasts last week; I’m a creature of habit, so mixing it up like that is always a little challenge for me.

This week is looking like it will be much of the same: lots of yoga and three longer workouts. I realized over the weekend that I’m in kind of a “Just be happy you’re showing up” phase. Over the weekend, I was kind of beating myself up for not being more adventurous with my workouts, but I realized that yoga works for me and going above and beyond just isn’t my priority right now. Maybe I’ll make that a March goal? Or…September? Ish?

Hope you’re having a great Presidents’ Day! Any good meals or workouts on the agenda this week?
