Dinner Monday was a new recipe. One of the things I want to do more this year is use my (new) recipes. I have a subscription to 3 food magazines and as you know a huge collection of cook books. The recipes I save from the magazines I want to make within a few weeks after I received the magazine. Otherwise I will probably not make them at all. And recipes in magazines always fit in the season. Monday I made an oven dish with mashed potatoes, sauerkraut, chicken en pineapple. We bought thought it was okay but not good enough to eat it again.
And for the last time back to the rösti. Lori asked in her comment on my last post: Rösti is pretty much just potatoes, right?
That’s right. However the one I use has little pieces of ham, onion and cheese in it which makes it very tasteful.
Tuesday we had an oven dish with mashed potatoes, chicory, ham and cheese for dinner. I’ve made this dish before and I like it very much.
I’m thinking of bringing my own salads to work. Lately either they’re out of salads because I eat in the second lunch shift or I don’t like the salads or they aren’t low carb.
Question for those of you who prep food for the week in the weekends: how do you keep everything fresh, how do you store it?
And if you bring food to work, how do you keep it cool till it’s lunchtime?
Wednesday we had noodles with vegetables and chicken for dinner.
Getting back at Bella and thinking big: at the doggy day care where she goes twice a week they have a playground for the little dogs (which she is) and a big field for the big dogs. When I came to pick her up on Wednesday I heard a familiar bark on the big field. Guess what: Bella was at the field with all the big dogs, she was the smallest. The owner said she had been playing on that field all day long with the big dogs. I have such a tough doggie, I love it.
Thursday: kale with mashed potatoes and meat.
I received a letter in the mail on Thursday from my company. The letter was to inform me that I have my anniversary at this company coming up this year. In December I will be working there 10 years. This means that on the day itself I will get a little party with a speech and cake and a little bonus. But what this company also does is: all the people that have an anniversary in a year are invited, together with their partner, for a day where the anniversary is celebrated. What we will be doing is the biggest secret in the company every year but everyone who has had their anniversary says it’s a lot of fun. This day will probably be held somewhere in September.
You know what’s not fun? The fact that you can’t do a single push up because you have no strength in your upper body and your hub, who never ever works out, does 7 in a row. Why oh why did I challenge him to try it 🙂
The title of this post is especially true today: TGIF! I’m very tired.
I had a few nights at the beginning of the week where I slept very, very bad. The past 2 nights I slept good again but I knew it was going to catch up on me. Yesterday and today I’m so tired, I’m glad it’s Friday and I have the weekend to recharge.
Today’s dinner: we made homemade cheeseburgers. Maybe not the most healthy dinner but always better than take out food which we ate way too much lately on Friday.
Have a great weekend!
