Tuesday

Weekly Meal Plan and New Bags

Last week some of you seemed to enjoy seeing our weekly meal plan, so here it is for this week!


Monday: sauteed chicken (marinated all day in Greek dressing), Great Northern beans simmered with rosemary, kale superfood salad (from a bag - a Harris Teeter special!)

Tuesday: BBQ ranch chopped salad with grilled chicken

Wednesday: Girls Night Out (last Wednesday night's outing was postponed until this week due to riots)

Thursday: I host Supper Club here (also postponed from last week to this week). Will share the menu next week!

So, food this week will be pretty easy. Camille gets a packed lunch twice this week since she'll eat at preschool, and I'm going to take my friend Sarah's idea and spread hummus between two slices of wheat bread. The school is nut-free, so no PB&Js.

My friend Justine, who writes over at Full Hands Full Heart, has recently started selling Thirty-One. You're probably very familiar with this line of bags, totes, and accessories. She has been such a help to me with assisting me in deciding which bag suits my needs. Ultimately I went with the Large Utility Tote (and took advantage of their September special to get the stand-up insert for $15, reduced from $50). I see so many uses for this ... park picnics, packing for weekends away, car trunk organization, Aldi shopping trips!


Large Utility Tote in Ribbon Stripe for $35 - You’ll be amazed at how much this classic tote can hold. The structured metal frame keeps it open for bulky items and provides strength for durability. Use it to keep your closet in order, carry toys or groceries while you’re on the go, haul camping gear and so much more. It even collapses for easy storage! Via @thirtyonegifts
I love black and white stripes so this pattern was a no-brainer. But they also have a really awesome red and black check pattern that I almost purchased.

If you are in the market for some new totes, lunchboxes, teacher gifts, Christmas gifts - I know Justine would love to help you. She has been such a great friend to me and I know you will love getting to know her too! She's a mom of five, and therefore an ORGANIZING QUEEN, so she can really point you in the right direction! You can shop the whole line here. The September special I took advantage of is only good for a few more days!

  1. Haha, I bought this exact same combo in blue for the car. It fits perfectly between the two car seats in the back seat as my catch all bucket. We leave our kid's shoes and extra toys/blankets in the car and I'm always worried they are going to fall out.

  2. My large utility totes are wonderful! I have one in the back of my suv full of my son's 'stuff' (car seat accessories, baby carrier, park blanket, etc) and two more at home. I think I'm going to have to pick up an insert now!

    1. Laura! Let me know if I can help you place an order for a stand tall insert- they are on special this month and we don't always carry them- so it's a great idea to pick one up while you can! :)

  4. I made this last night and it was a HIT:
    http://www.recipetineats.com/one-pot-greek-chicken-lemon-rice/

    Forgot to marinate the chicken (I used boneless skinless thighs), so I just seasoned them w/oregano and dill before I seared them, and added the lemon juice & zest with the chicken brother (did not use water). One pot, one hour, super delicious.

  7. That chicken looks so good! We have been doing lots of easy meals around here. I make your stuffed pork tenderloin fairly often. When I was teaching, I loved 31. So many great teacher gifts.

  8. I have the same tote in polka dots and we love it! It has come in hand on so many occasions and I always get compliments on it.

  9. ahh packing toddler lunches- so much fun. hah We do bento box for L to keep her interested in packed lunches and even though our daycare does allow peanut butter and we send it occasionally, I thought a fun combo a friend introduced me to for kiddos was cream cheese and jam. I make little cracker sandwiches with it for L.

  10. Oh my gosh, I LOVE Thirty-One bags. I have SO many of them but I use them all. I use the utility totes when I go grocery shopping & they are SO nice. I've gotten many compliments/comments on them. Thirty-One is fabulous! :)

  12. If you dedicate yourself over the next 21-days and follow The 3 Week Diet as outlined, you will be walking around with 12 to 23 pounds of body fat gone from your waist, hips, thighs, belly and butt. Your clothes will be looser, you’ll look healthier and more attractive…and you’ll have more energy than you’ve ever had in a long, long time.

    The best food for good health to maintain the system of your body I really engaged for.
