This Week's Eats - Grandma's Visting Edidtion!

Ahhh, the holidays are upon us and my husband is taking off at least a day a week (sometimes two!) every week in December.  My mother in law arrives this Thursday for her annual visit to celebrate Christmas and my husband's birthday.  I'm so very glad to be taking a break from any training and I'm hoping to have my Seattle Half recap done later this week...  Long story short, I was FAR from a PR, but managed to have a course PR by 6+ minutes with 2:07:44. 

  • Monday - Pizza!
  • Tuesday - Leftover mac and cheese (Pioneer Woman Recipe) and roasted broccoli
  • Wednesday - Crockpot Thai Peanut Chicken  (trying this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens that I found via Pinterest)
  • Thursday - MIL arrives! will probably go out for dinner or get takeout
  • Friday - easy chicken breasts on the grill with bbq sauce, rice and salad
  • Saturday - date night out for husband's b-day for steak!
  • Sunday - spaghetti with ground turkey ragu (pretty much the same sauce recipe as our arrabiata, but with ground turkey)

Go check out all of the other weekly menu goodness linked up by Laura and Jill!


  1. Yay for the course PR! Looking forward to the recap. Thai peanut chicken sounds so good. I wonder how I can make it vegan?

    1. Hmmm, well definitely sub veg broth for chicken broth and maybe add some mushrooms? Or tofu at the end, since I don't think that you can slow cook tofu... :)

  2. That's a great course PR!!! And I agree that the thai peanut chicken sounds amazing. And hopefully it's easy. Love me some crockpot.

  3. Congrats on the half! Enjoy the extra date nights with your mil around, and I'm so jealous of all the time your husband takes off. Yay!
