This past week has been particularly hard. We are moving house. TODAY. In fact as you are reading this the kids and I are in the car and headed south on Hwy 1 toward San Diego.
So to say that fitting in exercise in between packing boxes, loading the truck, washing walls and windows and farewell dinners has been extremely difficult.
Thank goodness I at least had a meal plan in place that definitely helped to keep me on track just a little.
And so begins week 4. Hopefully this week I will find lots of time to exercise in-between un-packing boxes.

Recipe of the week:
- Olive oil
- Cherry tomatoes
- Basil leaves
- Roast beef
- Sun Dried Tomato Bruschetta
- 75% reduced fat Cabot cheese
- Artisan Split Crust Pesto Bread
Cut the zucchini in half and then into 5mm thick strips. Cut the asparagus stalks a little shorter to make them more manageable as finger food. You are going to grill the asparagus, zucchini and slices of pesto bread on the George Foreman for approximately 5 minutes each on medium-high. While each of these is rotating, gently toss the mushrooms in a little olive oil in a pan on the stove.
Cut the mozzarella balls into quarters. Carefully thread the cherry tomato, basil and mozzarella onto a small skewer.
Arrange each of your ingredients onto a plate, rolling the meats, slicing the cheese and placing the bruschetta in a small bowl with a knife for spreading.
Note: You know I'm a big fan of our weekly 'do it yourself' night. This is such a quick and easy dinner and you can add a variety of foods to your platter depending on the likes and dislikes of your family.
Also, a big thank you to Katherine Marie (and the people from Cabot) who let me know that there was a 75% reduced fat cheese on my tuna melt post. They actually had it in stock at my local Safeway store this week.
