Weekly Meals

Well the week is off to some yummy meals. Since it is summer I try to work with the season.

Sunday: We made a huge salad with lots of veggies and my hubs whipped up a great dressing with blueberries balsamic vinegar some herbs and olive oil. I think to be honest I was cutting veggies and talking about why Frozen is the best movie.

Monday: We are off to the burbs cause a storm is coming. We want to make sure my dad and his basement are safe. So we are having chicken salad sandwiches and veggies with homemade dip.

Tuesday: Hopefully all is well after the storm. (FINGERS CROSSED) we will be having homemade guacamole, homemade salsa (spicy for the hubs plain for me and the kiddos) also I may make this bean dip if time is allowed. It seems like a nice day so we may be at the park or walking around for awhile.

Thursday: Heading to Michigan (our lake house) and dinner out.

Friday-Sunday in Michigan and the hubs will be grilling. Just not sure what yet. All depends on guests

This weekend we did not do a family run. It was too hot but we had had plenty of family time at home. This included a dance party, running a marathon and lots of hide and seek.

Since this is my first post I thought I would give a bit of a introduction of myself and my family. They will be in the post a lot.

I'm a very happy stay at home mom of four soon to be six. For the purpose of the blog the kids will be known as 1,2,3,4 and 5 and 6 in a few months. My husbands will be known as hubs. I just want to protect a bit of privacy. We also have 3 dogs we adopted. They may appear from time to time since they run and sail with us sometimes.

We live in the Windy City. I'm a native the hubs is from NYC and moved her after we got married. I gave up the corporate world when I had our first who is 3 years old. A few months later our 4 year old came into our lives through adoption. So basically I had a baby of about 3 months and a 16 month in one year. It was bliss! We welcomed our twins 8 months ago.

My hubs is a runner, swimmer and bike rides. I will ride my bike with him and we do family runs (I believe I slow him down) but I do not swim. But our kids are water babies thanks to him.

We love sailing and have our sail boat in walking distance of where we live.

Our house has a food allergy so I cook healthy gluten free meals, though the hubs and 1 I know sneak non gluten free sweets sometimes.
