To start off the week, I have to admit that I slacked a bit. I was CRAZY busy this Monday. Sweets and I got back from Church camp on Sunday night and I had a ton of errands to run Monday morning, as well as starting a new Bible study group early Monday afternoon (11:40-2). in addition I go to language lessons from 4-6pm Monday evenings and then to top it all off this Monday I was also meeting a couple of friends for dinner from 7pm.
So I felt totally insane and on the run the entire day!
Now that you can get a grasp of how I was feeling this week, please cut me some slack with this weeks menu hehe
I also want to note that I do not usually have a breakfast menu, this is because Sweets goes to the gym every morning at 7am, so he gets up before me and always has the exact same thing for breakfast (three eggs, a banana, a smoothie and granola)band I tend to also eat the same thing morning after morning (Honey nut cheerios or raisin toast with butter) So our meals are for lunch and dinner -only 4 nights a week. (We also eat an ice-cream cup for dessert every night after dinner) Also keep in mind we live in Japan. I prefer to home-cook more western style food but at times it may sound a bit different. I tend not to use recipes and just throw the things together, but if there is a recipe you would like please ask and Id be happy to send it your way.
