Hi, friend! How are you? I hope you’re taking good care of yourself.
Right now for me, amidst a million emotions, self care looks like:
- getting outside as often as possible and getting some sunshine
- sitting in front of my light therapy lamp every morning, reading scriptures, writing down a verse that stands out, and writing a gratitude list in my Rad and Happy journal
- feeding myself yummy and nutritious food (currently loving: visiting my local farmer’s market often and picking up a weekly CSA box of fresh produce from my friend’s health food market)
- meal planning and feeding my family super yummy things that we love to eat
I hadn’t made a proper grocery store run in a few weeks. Our fridge and pantry were looking pretty sad. So, on Sunday evening I asked my husband and kids what dinners they wanted to eat this week. Early Monday morning, I braved Meijer, Aldi, and Costco — and honestly, it wasn’t too bad. I tied on my mask and checked the items off of my list at each store.
Here’s what we’re eating this week:
Monday: Costco Lasagna
Tuesday: Fiesta Ranch Chicken + rice (my friend gave me the recipe and I can’t find one online — but I’ll do a blog post about it soon because it’s so easy and so delicious!)
Wednesday: Salisbury Steak +mashed potatoes + veggies
Thursday: Pineapple Chicken + rice
Friday: Pizza Delivery
Saturday: Orange Chicken + rice
I realize we’re eating a lot of rice this week, but it’s quick and easy – and goes so well with the dinners that my family requested (I bought a 15 lb. bag of rice at Costco and have plentyyyy 😂). Also, it helps that we have a ton of produce from the farmer’s market and the CSA box that help us eat as many fruits and veggies as possible throughout the week.
I hope you’re having a good week so far and are inspired to make something yummy! Take care, friend. 💛
