Weekly Menu 5/25 - 5/30

Happy Memorial Day weekend! After the winter we had, I think absolutely everyone around here went to the beach to enjoy the beatific weather we're having. Yesterday was 74 degrees and and partly sunny. Today and tomorrow are going to be in the low 80s and sunny. This is my kind of weather!

I went to Wegman's yesterday morning expecting it to be the usual crowded nightmare that it is on Saturdays mornings and instead I found it almost entirely empty. My friend came over to hang out at the pool with me yesterday and we were the only people there for over an hour when only two more people showed up. I'm curious to see if it's going to be busier today. My goal for the weekend is to go to the pool every day. Tom is even joining me today which is practically unheard of.

I'm winding down on the Whole30, this is my last full week. June 3rd is my last day. I'm excited but I also have no idea what I'm going to eat once this is over. Since I'm a planner, I planned out dinner for all of next week as well and just stuck to the Whole30 recipes to make it easier. I told my coworker I have no idea what I'm going to eat once I can have everything again. I'm leaning toward an iced caramel coffee from Dunkin Donuts. Yogurt and cheese will probably be the next things I eat. I can't tell you how hard this weekend has been not being able to have a cheeseburger. I don't even miss the bun, I just want the cheese.

Sugar is going to be the hardest. I know I probably consume a decent amount of sugar, real or fake, every day and that bothers me. I want less and what I'm having the hardest time dealing with is the iced tea I used to drink. For the sake of quickness I buy refrigerated iced tea by the gallon. I absolutely loathe wasting calories on liquid so I buy the diet version, which contains aspartame. But then I think is a gallon of iced tea sweetened with aspartame that takes me 6 days to finish really that bad for me? What do you think?

Anyway, here's what I'm making for the week.

Sunday: sausages and peppers

Monday: burgers and sweet potato fries, roasted asparagus

Tuesday: grilled ahi tuna, sesame zoodles 

Wednesday: lemon-pepper pork spare ribs, mashed sweet potatoes, roasted asparagus

Thursday: shrimp scampi (zoodles for me) 

Friday: leftovers 

For breakfast I'm making the bacon, basil and tomato frittata I had last week because it was just that good. For lunch I'm having a chicken meatball spring minestrone soup. Yes, soup when it's supposed to be 90 degrees. :)

Also, my captain swan fan fiction seems to be going pretty well. Have you read it yet? https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10347266/1/Chinese-Food-and-a-Movie

Hope you're enjoying this weekend!
