It seems that we’ve been super busy lately. Maybe it has something about a wedding in two weeks….. So Adam & I have been taking time out to enjoy our Sundays. Sunday is typically meal planning, grocery shopping & meal prep. But we’ve been making a morning pit stop before heading to the store.
Bloomingfoods is a local food co-op that has, now, 5 locations in Bloomington. Adam & I actually are members of the co-op. It’s all organic and free-range produce & meats. If you’re on a specific diet that requires you to seek out alternative ingredients in order to enjoy your favorite meals, this place is going to have it.
They’re most recent addition is the Elm Heights store. They built it this year, and in the plans was an upstairs area, get this, dedicated to COFFEE! Since we’ve been go, go, go so much, we decided to have ours “for here.” My latest kick is a cafe au lait. It’s so good. With dark roasted coffee and steamed whole milk. There’s something about sipping it while holding the warm ceramic mug. It’s soothing and comforting. And so nice to take a moment to just enjoy drinking it. Adam had a cappucino. It had skull & cross bones foam artwork on top!! We also both enjoyed a Bloomingfoods baked treat. (Seriously, this place has sooo many things to offer, made to order sandwiches, salad bar, prepared sandwiches & salads, hot bar, drinks galore. It was so nice to just sit back.
Then it was on to groceries & meal prep. While I love to shop at Bloomingfoods as much as I can, I also know that if we have a lengthy enough grocery list, it’s better on our pocket books to head to Kroger or Marsh. But here’s our menu for the week.
Sunday – Creamy Chicken & Kale Soup
Monday – Leftovers
Wednesday – Leftovers
Thursday – Leftovers
Saturday – Out, maybe
Breakfast – Make-It-Up-As-I-Go Chorizo & Mushroom Egg Casserole
Lunches – Baked chicken breasts for wraps
Monday is right around the corner. I should be having a pretty busy week at work, so it was nice to take a moment to ourselves today. What do you like to do when you want just stop from life and take a breath?
