Menu Plan Monday: Aiming Towards Goal Weight

Well, we made it to Houston last Thursday afternoon without getting caught in too much weather and no floods, at least in this part of Houston. I cooked last night and it was pretty damn tasty.
I'm hoping I can be somewhat creative and inspired this week. I know a lot of people get inspired by Whole 30, but I'm not there yet. Yes, I am cooking Whole 30 because some people in my life need extremes. I'm still having my raw honey in my coffee every morning. You can't take that away from me!!!! Gawd, I can't wait for my stuff to get here, I need my Keurig.
Breakfast Eggs and Turkey or Beef Bacon, Paleo Banana Bread Muffins or Mini Sweet Potato Souffles.
Lunch Aiming for leftovers, otherwise, tuna and avocado or BLTs with extra lettuce instead of bread.
DinnerSunday: Pineapple Turkey Burgers with either arugula salad or sweet potato fries. Or both. Or maybe I'll splurge on some bison. It's awfully dangerous living less than a block from a Whole Paycheck Foods Ma…


I haven't been blogging much lately, but I have been trying something a little different on G+. It started when I saw some awesome bedrooms and decided that in a perfect world, that's where I would want to sleep. Each post was titled "Tuck Me In". Since Collections launched I've been a little more focused and they have evolved into a short recap of my day or my state of mind.

You can follow the collection if you're interested in exotic locations and want to keep getting inside my head. And no, you don't have to get a G+ account to see these gorgeous bedrooms.

Menu Plan Monday: Freezer Cleanout

I don't plan on doing much cooking this week since my cupboards look like this:

I'm in the process of packing and this past weekend I pretty much deconstructed my kitchen. I have a few pans left out and salt and pepper for seasoning. Oh, and some Jamaican Jerk seasoning. The fridge looks like my cupboards, except for the ubiquitous condiments that will be (unfortunately for the Depression-era frugal saver portion of my personality) thrown out by this weekend. I plan on eating what's left in my freezer, which isn't much. 
Monday: Turkey burger and sweet potato fries Tuesday:  Pan-seared lemon pepper tilapia and butternut squash Wednesday: Bacon and avocado scramble (breakfast for dinner) Thursday: Grilled or pan-seared Mahi-Mahi with pineapple mango salsa Friday: Eating out if I have managed to eat everything in the freezer, or leftovers.
