Weekends for me aren’t necessarily Saturdays and Sundays…they are basically any days that I am off and sometimes that falls on an actual weekend and sometimes it falls on a Tuesday. That is the beauty of inpatient nursing…that being said I did have an actual weekend, but a long one so I thought it would be fun to share that with you.
On days that I am off and hubby works I try to cook up something yummy, nutritious and different then our quick throw together stuff. Salmon is definitely one of those meals that gets thrown into rotation-hubby loves it when salmon is on the menu and it fits into that yummy and nutritious category.
We had this piece of salmon with some roasted cauli and since we had a few carrots leftover I roasted those up too.
I’ve been enjoying rice bowls for lunches/dinners recently. I have honestly never been a rice person, but recently I’ve been craving it. I love throwing in whatever veggies we have on hand along with some beefless ground and this green sriracha from Trader Joes.
When hubby and I finally had the chance to go out we hit up a Mediterranean spot, The Diplomat, to get in some good eats. To start we had the hummus, pickles, and falafel.
We ended up sharing the lamb chops for our main. I think the hummus may have been one of my favorite parts of the meal. It was so smooth and creamy!
On Sunday morning, post HIIT I toasted up a Kodiak Cake waffle (yes, still eating them!) and spread some peanut butter and mashed up some raspberries on top. Will be doing this again!
During our grocery run we ended up hungry and found ourselves in the car eating rotisserie chicken and some cake we picked up from Porto’s. The carrot cake was my favorite outta the two and I will definitely be adding that to my list of items to get from there.
We wrapped our weekend with In n’ Out and flan from Porto’s along with a nice long walk. I hope you guys enjoyed the post!
What’s your favorite weekend thing to do?
