Weekly Menus: Week of 2/10/2013 (Recovery Edition)

Gentle Readers, the past couple of weeks have been something of a whirl. To say I’ve been on the run would be literal, 5 miles of literal. Yesterday, for the first time ever, I ran in the Krispy Kreme Challenge with The Cloudcast team. What could be better than combining my love of the double K with running?

A few missteps: what I thought was a 5K was actually a 5 mile race. This data point came out mid-race. Also, eating doughnuts at speed and in bulk? Very very difficult. I managed 3 or 4, and full disclosure, had to walk a good portion of the last 2.5 miles of the race.

Full marks to my teammates Brian Gracely and Aaron Delp, who ate all the doughnuts and ran the whole way (uphill both ways!). Major bonus point for being the #1 team fund raiser for the NC Children’s Hospital. Way to go guys!

Which leads us to this week’s menus, full of additional social obligations and salad.

Which translates to:

Sunday: Salad
Somehow, someway, this will be the featured item. After some doughnuts.

Monday: Dine Out/Leftovers
Currently planning to attend a business dinner, but will supplement with some plant-based leftovers. Notice a theme?

Tuesday: Flying Mayans
Going to make use of the tortillas and cooked sweet potato I found in my fridge upon my return.

Wednesday: Dine Out/Pasta
More social plans, and if they don’t work, it’s pasta time. With salad of course!

Thursday: Rustic Tart
It’s been cold, and this seems like the perfect match. I plan on roasting whatever root veggies we have around and putting them in a crust with a bit of salty cheese and balsamic. Hungry now.

Friday: Stir Fry
Another vegetable classic, just add egg. I love that you can use up leftovers, alter the sauce, and never have the same thing twice.

Saturday: Dine Out
The Juniors will vote on the destination, they’ve earned it with their time in the kitchen and prepping school lunches. More on that next time.

In a colossal planning oversight, I’m due to get my cholesterol checked soon. I think I’ll delay that slightly. How many doughnuts can you eat at one sitting? Post a comment, send a well wish, or just say hi: comments box is right there.
