What I Ate Weekend #11

Yesterday was a Family Day here in BC, combined with 5 days of no school and previous 2 snow days, feels like there is never any school in this country. We took advantage of a beautiful warm sunny day and went skiing which was fantastic. The drive was beautiful, we skied in sweaters and Alex took over our 6 year old (after my Sunday’s mental breakdown haha) so it meant I could ski like a grown-up. Alex’s verdict was “OMG he never stops talking”. YEP. Today is Valentine’s Day and…

What I Ate Weekend #10

Friday Night During the day, I made a huge pot of chicken noodle soup because I knew I would be too tired to cook on the weekend, and it would last u 3-4 meals. Yep, I was right. Before heading out to my Stitch and Bitch, I had a bowl. Would you like to know how I make the broth clear and how I make a big pot of organic chicken stock that costs 10 times less than even at Costco? I had one beer. I lately like…

What I Ate Weekend #9

Friday Night On Friday night, we had friends over for pizza night that was inspired by Katie’s homemade pizza sauce. I custom ordered 10 whole wheat pizza doughs at a local Italian bakery, that I froze. I made 3 pizzas – cheese pizza for kids; fig, arugula and prosciutto and veggie for adults. It was very good. I had 5 slices (yes!) washed down by a few glasses of wine. Picture forgotten but you got an idea. Saturday Breakfast: 3 boiled eggs and banana (somehow Alex decided I eat food…

What I Ate Weekend #8

I’m back with my WIAW series. Are you happy? I consider past weekend great in terms of food, balance and fun. Especially after discussing with all of you how we all struggle about the same issue – food, I feel more than ever inspired to share my weekend eats. Interesting enough, talking to all of you in the comments made me realize even more how life is short and is about balance. I thought a lot about what each and everyone of you said because I learn from…

What I Ate Weekend #7

Friday Night Weekend started with the most unappetizing food photo ever. Welcome to life with kids! And if you decide to have 2+ kids you will really find out how your reality with 1 kid, or even better no kids, was a freaking dream life. My 5 year old “cooked” himself a dessert with healthy Nutella, almonds and chocolate chips and then decided he was full. Of course, mommy gets the leftovers because daddy would never eat that. Oh, the things mommy is willing to do. After dessert,…

What I Ate Weekend #6

Well, hi. I’m back. On Thursday, I fell a victim of a nasty cold, took Laurel’s advice to rest and then snow came in on Friday. Which is a very hard problem to understand for the rest of North America in December, I get it. But just so you know, if it snows in Vancouver life STOPS. It equals to almost the end of the world because it snows in PNW once every 10 years. But because of La Nina we got snow. And that is why I…

What I Ate Weekend #5

Well, hi. How are you holding up these days? I’m beyond exhausted. When I say it, I mean it. I can handle a lot and now I’m hanging by a thread. I start dreaming of bedtime at noon now. Long story short it seems like anytime I think I did it all an essential item that has to be done like making dinner or packing lunch pops up. I have already eliminated all non-life threatening activities. I have done zero Christmas shopping at the store. I haven’t been to…

What I Ate Weekend #4

Friday night me and Alex went out on “a date” which involved shopping at Value Village. I know! I find it very good for kids brand name clothing. I have bought wonderful things there for dirt cheap. I honestly got tired of spending hundreds of $s on kids clothing when they grow so fast. So, I will take and buy all good hand me downs. More money for my Lululemon. Also, before we move on, I have to be honest and say the past week has been so…

What I Ate Weekend #3

I feel like the US female clean eating population went into post-election and pre-Thanksgiving coma. Where is everybody, America? Are my Canadian girls buying parkas? Are you in the gym getting some natural high? Are you shopping for a stretchy pants? Are you recovering after the weekend? What did you eat SOOOO GOOD or BAD this weekend that we should all know about? Let’s talk! I need a good laugh after my 5 year old’s end of the world tantrum this morning. Seriously, when are these tantrums gonna end? He is…

What I Ate Weekend #2

Friday Night This weekend started with shopping at Costco on Friday afternoon. $500 poof. Gone. Bye bye. For dinner was mini won tons in a chicken stock with kale and green onions. When we got home I cooked a huge pot of chicken stock with leftover chicken bones from making butter chicken spaghetti squash boats. This was dinner. Dinner made or planned by Alex miracle didn’t happen this week or weekend at all. I’m not sure I am even mad at this point anymore.
