One of Dan's work friends told Dan he had 3 extra tickets to a Missouri Mavericks hockey game last night.
When Dan called and asked if I wanted to go - I was totally game because
a - I haven't left the house in 6 days. 6 days. I think I would be very successful at being agoraphobic.
b - my hockey knowledge doesn't go past what I learned in The Mighty Ducks movies, and those were years ago
So, we packed up Ina and away we went.
As it turns out, a hockey game isn't the best place to take a baby. Yep, we were those people.
Who takes a baby to a hockey game? asked the judgmental people all around us.
Still, the trip was pretty successful. We only ran into problems when the horn blared after a score (8 times!) and when I was feeding her in the family restroom and some rowdy fans thought I was using more than my fair share of bathroom time. Yikes.
Today we are going to church, then grocery shopping, then prepping the meals for this week which are:
Monday: a taco beef version of the chicken tamale bake. My sister told me she substituted one pound of ground beef seasoned with taco seasoning and mixed with a can of Rotel for the chicken and it was pretty good. I am going to give it a try.
Tuesday: meatloaf with roasted green beans and mashed potatoes / cauliflower
Wednesday: crockpot Asian glazed chicken with broccolini and brown rice
Thursday: baked chicken nuggets with sweet potato fries and roasted broccoli
Friday - dinner at my sister's (Jess - the only thing we can bring is leftovers)
Breakfasts - overnight oat "kits" (put all the dry ingredients in little bags so that all I need to do is mix in the milk and the yogurt) and more breakfast cookies
Lunches - leftovers plus quinoa salads
Snacks - popcorn, fruit with cottage cheese or Greek yogurt, carrots
I started to put a grocery list together for you guys, but then got a tad bit overwhelmed and figured that you wouldn't really need it. Let me know if I was wrong.
I completed Jillian Michael's Ripped in 30. I have been doing this video about once a week for the past 2ish months, and I am still on Week 1. I super sore today and terrified to move on to Week 2. Maybe next year?
Breakfast - hard-boiled eggs with toast and Earth Balance butter
Lunch - a left over chicken burrito from the night before
Dinner - chicken fingers and fries at the game - not pictured because I was too busy bouncing my baby.
Thought for the day
