I can’t believe we are entering March already! Time seems to just fly; Spring will be around the corner before we know it! I love Spring because the weather just gets better as it gets warmer. All the plants and flowers will start to bud which signifies hope and life. Where there is hope, there’s happiness! When I feel happy, I am much more productive and so much more get done!
Positive thinking is such a powerful thing; it gives us strength to deal with all our problems. I used to think why do bad things happen to me and why can’t my life be as good as my friends etc… Then I saw a quote: “The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they make the best of everything.” I realized that no one has the best of everything. We just have to make the best of what we got. Then my attitude changed and all my problems seemed so much easier to deal with. From then on, I try to remind myself to think positively no matter how bad the situation is. It is just a phase and it will pass!
For this week, I’ve incorporated some Spring vegetables to get our spirits up. Here’s the weekly shopping list and meal plans:
Potato Leek Soup
Monday is the day we want something very simple. This Potato leek soup will give you just that. You can always add bacon bits if you are a bacon lover.
Baked BBQ Chicken with Vegetable Soup
This vegetable soup is filled with all the green vegetables that are really good for you. Glee loved it! I hope you will all love it too!
Grilled Pork Chop with Brown Rice Salad
I love the warm brown rice salad because it is really tasty and easy to prepare. The pork chop can also be prepared in advance so when it comes time for dinner, you just have to sear and pop it in the oven.
Slow Cook Pork Ribs with Chinese Baby Broccoli
I made this meal when I have no time to cook dinner. Before I leave for work, I just cook the rice in the rice cooker and pork ribs in the slow cooker. Then when I come home from work, everything is done, all I have to do is stir-fry the broccoli which is less than 10 minutes.
My husband’s favourite pasta is carbonara! So I made this and he ate two bowl in one sitting. For a guy who doesn’t like carbohydrates, it is a lot of pasta. Glee loved it too and I am sure this meal will have your family wanting seconds.
