Weekly Menu September 11th - 16th


I debated on going to my mom's for the pool on Saturday because it was 91 degrees and sunny, but there was also 90% humidity which makes it pretty miserable to be outside. Instead I started on that list of things to do around the apartment that I put off all summer in favor of going to the pool every weekend.

I cleaned the washing machine and all of the appliances and found that my dishwasher is not draining properly. I also found an incredible amount of disgusting gunk in there that made me lose my appetite so if you haven't cleaned all the parts of your dishwasher recently, consider this your PSA to get right on that. Since we live in an apartment, I put in a call to maintenance and I'm hoping that they come early this week because hand-washing dishes really sucks.

I also finally picked back up on the Kon Mari method and went through the living room and dining room to find things to get rid of. The kitchen is up next and I'm not looking forward to how long it's going to end up taking me. I plan on taking everything out of the cabinets, cleaning them out and then only putting back in what I plan on keeping. The pantry and my small baking pantry need to be done as well, so I'm estimating 3-5 hours to really get it completely done since I'll likely super scrub all of the appliances again. I have that on my calendar for Saturday the 24th.

Why? Well the following Saturday I have family and friends coming over and we're going to make an absolute ton of polish sausage again and we're also going to try our hand at the fried bowtie cookies as well. Not only are we cooking but I also need to feed everyone since the food we're making won't be ready for a few hours and we're starting at lunch time. So I have my list on Kon Mari items to complete before people come over as well as an additional list of things I'd like to get done around the apartment before we have guests.

This is the second week I'm completing the Fast Metabolism Diet and I'm hoping it goes well. I think I did a better job of planning out larger meals that I can freeze and eat in the following weeks on Fridays and the weekends when I'm not interested in cooking. Here's what I have planned out for the week:

Monday and Tuesday:
Breakfast: steel cut oats with cinnamon and stevia, strawberries
Snack: watermelon
Lunch: basil balsamic chicken, quinoa, zucchini and tomatoes
Snack: watermelon
Dinner, Monday: garlic herb chicken, garlic and herb quinoa, green beans and mushrooms
Dinner, Tuesday: bunless spicy burger with sweet potato fries and ketchup

Wednesday and Thursday:
Breakfast: egg whites, chicken sausage, asparagus
Snack: deli meat, cucumber slices
Lunch: basil balsamic chicken over celery and broccoli slaw/mixed green salad
Snack: hard-boiled egg, deli meat, celery slices
Dinner, Wednesday: rosemary pork tenderloin and mustard greens
Dinner, Thursday: Southwest beef and cabbage soup
