I’m so excited! I finally got to ordering the bike I’ve been coveting for months now!
I’ve been wanting a new mountain and a road bike for years. Anything new hasn’t exactly been in the budget the last few years and with my kids small, it wouldn’t have been the right time. Converting my old mountain bike to my around town Xtracycle suited my bike needs until now.
Leif is at an age where I can leave him with friends for a time so I’m eager to address my need for more fitness with a road bike. I would have loved to get a mountain bike, especially after watching video of my friends most recent visit to Moab but I had to be realistic. I can’t afford two bikes and any mountain biking I’d do would be out of town. It makes sense to get fit with a road bike I can ride here (or anywhere with roads) and get a mountain bike later.
So let me introduce you to the women’s road bike of my choice, Kona Lisa Rd.
Ooh la la.
I Seriously. Can’t. Wait.
So that excitement shared, I’ll get down to my meal plan for the week. I’m trying a few new recipes, one of which was sent to me by a friend. I love trying something new!
In the past I’ve shared how much (or little) I’ve spent with to make each of my weekly meal plans come to fruit. I kind of gave that up once I moved north where groceries were sometimes a lot more expensive. I do have to share though that this week I spent under $100 to buy all the food we need to make this meal plan work.
This week I’m making:
- Ratatouille (Thanks for the recipe, Gen)
- Aloo Gobi
- Broccoli and Almond Stir Fry
- Veg and Rice Stuffed Red Peppers with Caesar Salad with homemade Croutons
- Potato and Cauliflower Samosas
