Are you exhausted already? I also had time for a dentist appointment, yoga workshop, lunch with my parents, shopping with my mom (I bought 3 new dresses which will be perfect for wine tasting in California), and laundry.  There is still plenty to do tomorrow, starting with getting my bridesmaid dress fit for my brother’s wedding which is 3 weeks away, but after working through my to do list, I feel better already!

I slept until 9am this morning, which felt incredible!  I ate breakfast and headed out into the humidity for a bike ride.  I haven’t ridden in a few weeks, so I was excited to take my bike out.  My legs, however, were not so excited!

After Thursday’s leg workout complete with lots of lunges and squats and yesterday’s run, my legs were done.  I felt like I was pedaling against the wind 100% of the time, which considering I was biking in a loop couldn’t really be possible, right?!

My bike is also making some strange noises, so when I got back home, I tried to schedule an appointment at the bike shop.  Not surprisingly, they are booking about 2 weeks out, so I will have to wait.

 

After a shower, the BOY and I ate lunch together before he went off to the library, and I hung out with my parents.  I was really eager to go to the farmer’s market since it just opened and they had limes for 7 cents each!  The market is dangerously located in the middle of a mall, so my mom and I also found ourselves at Sur La Table, The Loft, and a few other stores.  My parents went on about their way and I hit up my last stop, the grocery store before making my way home for the day.  Since we had a quiet night in last night, I used that time to plan out this week’s meals.

The BOY was home from the library when I walked in, and I found him napping upstairs.  I have been pretty spoiled with the BOY grilling dinners and making many of our meals, but as each week goes by, he is studying longer and getting home later.  So, I went back to some of our favorites (with the help of my crockpot) for this week’s meal plan.

To go along with tonight’s meatloaf, I picked up some beautiful looking potatoes at the market.  Rosemary potatoes is one of our favorite sides, especially during grill season.  They are so easy to make in the oven and are usually a crowd favorite.  I love to make extra too to enjoy with my eggs as leftovers the next morning.  Yummy!

 

 

Meal Planning 6/22/14

Sunday: Chipotle Turkey Meatloaf with Rosemary Potatoes

 

Monday: Girls Dinner

 

Tuesday: Kung Pao Chicken

 

Wednesday: Seafood and Veggies

Roasted Rosemary Potatoes

 

Ingredients

About 6 small yellow or red potatoes, sliced (per one large baking sheet)

2 tbsp olive oil

Sea Salt

Rosemary

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place foil over a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray.  Place a single layer of potatoes, overlapping a little as needed, across the baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil and use a brush to spread evenly over the potatoes.

Sprinkle with sea salt and rosemary.  Place in preheated oven for 20 minutes.  Then remove potatoes and flip them over adding more sea salt and rosemary.  Return to oven for 15 to 20 minutes until crispy along the edges.  I like mine well done!

  1. It is weird how you can have a headwind throughout the entire loop! Happens to me more often than not!! 😦 I love rosemary!!! My absolute favorite herb!!!
    I was very productive this weekend! Probably because I was on a rest week and had short work outs! I cooked a bunch for the week, did laundry, worked on posts, made a cake, and even went to the movies!!!

  2. Super productive weekend! Can’t say mine was that productive, but I did get a few solid swimbikerun sessions in and cleaned the house 🙂 Your bike route looks beautiful! Definitely had all headwind rides like that, too… the worst when your legs are beat! Love rosemary potatoes! Happy Monday!

  3. Those taters look good! I made a chicken enchilada black bean casserole–it was awesome! I’ll be sharing the recipe on the blog this week! Oh and please put me in your suitcase when you go wine tasting 🙂

  4. Those potatoes look amazing!!! I will have to make some of my own soon 🙂

    Also, where are you going for wine tasting? I’m planning a trip to San Fran this fall and my top-of-the-list activity is going to be wine tours/wine tasting. But, I don’t know where to go yet! What wineries are you visiting?

    • Ok, so we don’t have any thing set or planned yet, but I will totally keep you posted. A friend of a friend who lives in SF says that you should totally try some of the small wineries in Livermore.
