Happy Meal Plan Day!!
It has been an amazing weekend for us here in WNY, and we definitely got outside and enjoyed it!
Saturday we made our first visit to the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmer’s Market. There wasn’t much in the way of produce, but we did get some delicious looking asparagus and some locally made chicken sausage (both of which are on the menu for this week). I also was able to grab some of my absolute favorite goat cheese from First Light Farm & Creamery, I’ve been waiting all Winter for it! They do sell it at the local co-op, but I don’t get there enough, whereas the Farmer’s Market we go almost weekly.
Later in the afternoon, we headed out for ice cream and to play. We went to a playground that is right next to the hospital where Emmett was born. I love going there, and seeing the hospital, plus it’s fun to point it out to Emmett every time (we’ve been there before). Emmett had a good time running around and trying to jump in the puddles and it got some his super high amounts of energy out.
Today I went out on my first long bike ride of the season. I was aiming for 15 miles, I did 16.5, mainly because I got lost. Whoops! I was using Google Maps and it kept telling me to turn right, but I couldn’t. There were only dead ends. So I kept going straight, thinking I would eventually be able to go right. Eventually, I could but then I was thrown off so I had to call Seamus and he headed me in the right direction and I easily found my way home. I won’t knock Google maps for bikes, though, it does say they’re still in BETA. Now I know they’re saying that for a reason.
After that, I came home ate a yummy breakfast (GF bagel, goat cheese and eggs), and we headed out to grocery shop. Came home, unloaded the groceries, Emmett ate a small lunch and then went down for a nap. While he napped, I did some laundry, cleaned my berries, and prepped some food for the week. I also dozed for about an hour, and it felt so good! My body was tired. Once Emmett was up, we headed out for a walk. Emmett wasn’t really enjoying the stroller so we let him walk on his own, so long as he held Daddy’s hand. He really liked that!
Alright, enough jibbah jabbah, on with the food (AmIRight!?)

Breakfasta for the Week: 1 scrambled egg with bacon on a piece of romaine lettuce. I eat it like a breakfast burrito and I don’t even miss the bagel.

Oh my gosh, your kiddo is so cute! And your meals sound delicious, too! We’re going to try to get in some homemade pizza this week, as well, but whenever I add it to the meal plan, it tends to move on to the next week because I don’t like the mess (even though it is super tasty)
Thanks Yuliya! I’m pretty smitten with him. 🙂
I love doing homemade pizza! We keep it easy, buy pre-made GF crust, and top with sauce, cheese and then either pepperoni or olives. We could definitely get more fancy, but then it becomes more work. We put pizza on the menu bc it’s yummy AND bc it’s quick and easy. Thanks for visiting!
Great menu planned for the week! What GF bagels do you like. The few I’ve tried so far I haven’t bought again. The texture was just odd.
I’ve tried about 6 different brands for GF bagels and the only ones that I’ve found that come close are the Gultino brand. The problem is that Wegmans is so flippant sometimes, that some weeks they have them and others they do not. When they don’t, I go with the Udi’s but they’re no where near as good.
Thank you for visiting!
I love goat cheese! Sounds like a lovely day at the farmer’s market. Ride for Roswell sounds awesome, my dad actually works in Roswell Park.
I love goat cheese!! And First Light’s Goat cheese is literally the BEST goat cheese I’ve ever eaten. I highly recommend you check them out and give it a try (I’m partial to the garlic & dill chevre).
Are you from this area?? Just asking because of your dad working at Roswell.
We had a beautiful weekend, too! Great job on the bike ride!
