Meal Makin' Monday!

After I went to my Heat class at the Y, I went to the grocery and spent an ungodly amount of money on food. But its okay, cause I went with a mission. What's the mission you ask? To prepare as many meals for this week that are made of fresh ingredients. I made "easy grab salads" with romaine, spinach, celery, and cherry tomatos. I put them in Glad Ware containers already to go. In addition to that, I got a ton of fresh fruit and washed, cut up and dispersed into more cute litte containers. I'm so Martha.

Here's the meal list for this week:

Chicken Goulash
Vegetable Beef Soup
Tomato Basil Quiche
Acorn Squash stuffed with quinoa and walnuts
Fresh Asparagus Dip
Cauliflower Risotto
Black Bean Orzo

I did this back in the day when Amelia was a newborn and I needed to lose some 65 lbs. I knew I wouldn't have time to prepare healthy stuff, so I'd just take one day and make everything ahead. So I figure I have even LESS time, so why not start that habit again? Man, I was in the kitchen for 3 hours straight cooking. I looked up at the clock and it was 5pm already! But I'm so glad I did it because the meals are going to be so yummy and point friendly. Here's some pics of my adventures...

And of course, a glass of wine to finish!
