Weekly Meal Planning & Central Park Half Marathon

Happy Monday! It is an exciting and stressful week over here. I’m so excited because we leave (very) early Friday morning for NYC! I’m stressed because I have a midterm in Biostats on Thursday. This too shall pass.

We are only cooking Monday- Wednesday this week and Thursday’s meal will be takeout to make it easier on us to prep for our early departure Friday morning.

Monday- Pork Chop with Wild Rice

We had a fun date night Friday night and after stopped at Whole Foods, because that is what you do when you’re old and married ;). While there, we decided to pick up some food to cook for the weekend. We got 2 stuffed pork chops and some flank steak. The thought was to cooke the pork chops Saturday night and steak Sunday night, but the pork chops were so big we split one Saturday and then again on Monday. They were pre-seasoned with wild rice and some seasonings but we didn’t like the rice much.

  • Pre-seasoned/stuff porked chop
  • Sweet potatoes (roasted- him, baked in microwave- her)
  • Broccoli- steamed in a saute pan on the stove


Tuesday- Chicken burrito bowls

  • Guacamole
  • Salsa
  • Rice
  • Black beans


Wednesday- Shrimp Stir Fry

  • Shrimp
  • Mixed veg
  • Broccoli
  • Soy sauce
  • Rice


Thursday- Take out

Friday-Tuesday- NYC!


Speaking of NYC, Tyler signed me up for the Central Park Half Marathon on Sunday! I’m so excited! I ran 10 miles on Friday and planned to do 6 in NYC and 12 the weekend after but am going to switch it up and do the half in NYC and then 6 miles the weekend after, which I think is actually better since the Zydeco half is the weekend after I’ll be doing 6. Excited to share some of our NYC adventures once we are back!
