Menu Monday

Finally.  After two weeks of shopping with a last minute list and doing the best I could with what was in the pantry and the refrigerator, I made a weekly menu.  And a detailed grocery list.  Last Friday, I shopped at Kroger, ran 10 miles, picked up my family, and then shopped at both Sam's and Walmart.  It was 10:00 PM before we got all of the groceries and various items all unloaded and put away, but I was so happy to have all of that done!

Here is the menu:

  1. lentil soup, rice, green salad, fresh fruit
  2. baked potato bar, green salad
  3. quinoa salad, baked sweet potato rounds, fresh fruit salad
  4. refried beans tacos or wraps, rice, corn, guacamole, corn, etc.
  5. homemade chicken noodle soup, fresh bread
Also, here are my miles this week.  I ran a total of 50 miles last week, and this week begins my taper down to the actual marathon.  I have 37 miles this week.  I ran 17 this morning, and so I have 9,6,5 left. At this point in the marathon training, I am a little bit weary of running.
