Monday Meal Planning

Oh, Monday. How do you sneak up on me so quietly and calmly only to SLAP me right in the face. You're so mean like that. We had such a lovely, lazy weekend. Complete with a date, a new bed, an antique show, a really big salad at Chipotle and some super delish meals. YAWN. What should we eat this week? Loads of good stuff, that's what.

Monday: Chicken Ropa Vieja (with Flank Steak, so really just Ropa Vieja)

Tuesday: Arugula Salad with Penne, Garbanzo Beans and Sun Dried Tomatoes

Wednesday: Turkey Sausage, Kale and White Bean Soup

Thursday: Tangy Spiced Brisket

Friday: Black Bean, Chicken and Rice Bowl w/ Apple Salsa

Saturday: Chicken and Artichokes in White Wine Sauce

Sunday: Marlboro Man Sandwich, Adorned.

Oh hey, I'm doing the March Photo challenge from The Maternal Lens, wanna join me? Of COURSE you do. Here it is:

Everyday, take a picture (I'm using my iphone, just simple and quick. No editing ) and upload to your facebook page, instagram, your blog ect..label it w/ the day and the theme and the hashtag #tmlphotoaday. Here's what I've done so far. 

Day 1. Something that makes me smile. My slippers and this stripey rug. 

Day. 2. Water

Day. 3. Black and White. Worms

Day 4. Tree. 

Today is something you love...well that's pretty easy. I have loads to work with. Join me! There's still plenty of time to catch up. Snap, snap, snap away! 

Happy Monday, peeps. 
Make it a good one!
