It is HOT in southwest Missouri! It has been over 100 degrees the last two days, and it looks like that's what we will have to deal with all week. These temperatures make it very hard to stay motivated to cook, exercise, etc. But, I've been hanging in there. :) My son has cross country practice early every morning, so I've been getting up and running as well. If you can beat the sun up, it's actually tolerable outside (for example, it was 80 degrees at 5:30 a.m. today). Running at night isn't an option. Last night it was 98 degrees at 10:00. Yuck!
This week I'm back to work. Yes, I know everyone thinks teachers have the summer off, but that is a huge fallacy. My only day off this week is Friday, which is perfect because that's when the last Harry Potter movie comes out. :) You know what this library lady will be doing on her day off.
My menu this week is another week of cleaning out the freezer. This will use up the last of my "stash" so I can start restocking next week. You'll notice a lot of chicken recipes this week. Bet you can guess what I have left in the freezer. :) I have three new recipes this week, so be sure to check back later for nutrition info and pictures.
Here's this week's menu. Enjoy and have a great week! Be sure to follow me on Facebook to get fast updates from the blog. :)
