This Weeks Eats 6.23.13

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend - we had a great one with our favorite date night restaurant and a movie, preceded by my first outing to just spectate (and provide some additional hydration) at a marathon.  

Thanks for the pic, and the lift downtown, Dawn!

It was a gorgeous day (70s and sunny), but a wee bit hot for distance running, in my opinion.  Good thing we were providing extra electrolytes for all those runners.  

I've been making a lot of iced coffee lately in these warmer days and the cold brew method is the way to go - if you can remember to start your coffee the night before.  The Pioneer Woman has a great recipe, but it seemed too unwieldy for me, so I found this one and loooove it.  I mix it up in my French press and strain it in the morning.  Like The Pioneer Woman, I enjoy making it with sweetened condensed milk, but it can be hard to incorporate into the coffee.  The solution?  I use an old glass jar and shake my ingredients.  

And, sometimes jazz it up with caramel sauce.  SO healthy, I know.

  • Monday - Pizza
  • Tuesday - Coconut Lime Pork Tacos (Doin' a little 'taco Tuesday' and trying this recipe my cousin sent me for This Weeks Eats!)
  • Wednesday - Alpine Chicken Casserole (Chicken breasts topped with swiss cheese, cream of mushroom soup thinned out with water, or a little white wine if ya want, and then cubed stuffing that's been tossed with a little butter. Bake at 350 for an hour, covered with foil for the first half hour - mmmm, cheesy baked goodness.)
  • Thursday - Turkey Burgers (with lots of jalapeno, garlic, onion, cilantro and spices: cumin, chili powder, cayenne)
  • Friday Beef and Vegetable Kebabs with 'Mojo Sauce' (moved this back from last week, since we decided to go to Red Robin for a last day of Kindergarten celebration)
  • Saturday - Baked Ziti
  • Sunday - Grilled Chicken Club Salad with Guacamole Dressing (an old Rachael Ray recipe)
I'm linking up with Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers, as well as Rachel at In No Simple Language - be sure to check out all the great weekly menus!


  1. I love iced coffee but haven't had much luck with making my own. Thanks for the link!

  2. SO nice of you to help out. Sorry I missed you. Some nice guy gave me a cup, and I looked but couldn't see you. It was a bit too hot in my opinion, too. Great recipes, as always.

  3. That is pretty warm for a marathon! I've never volunteered for a race- but I want to one of these days!
