V8 Broccoli Soup, Vegi Pasta, Food list

Hello :) How was your Monday? Mine was pretty good, a little frustrating at work because I have a major deliverable due tomorrow! At work today, I tried the V8 Garden Broccoli soup. I really enjoyed it! It doesn't have the spice of the Southwestern corn, but it has a very comforting taste! I added corn in for a little more substance. Yum Yum. After work, I walked to the gym, did 10 minutes on the treadmill, 10 minutes on the elliptical, took body pump, then ran home. I was sooooo hungry when I got home that I couldn't wait to make dinner. I cooked up the squash we picked up at the farmers market and some broccoli. I also made up some whole wheat pasta. I mixed the two together with tomato sauce and a little bit of cheese. It was very yummy (on a side note, I had cooked up some shrimp to add but it tasted a little...fishy so I decided to toss it. I don't take chances with food!

I promised earlier this week that I'd post my weekly food list, so here it is! My list covers 7 days of breakfast/lunch and six nights of dinner. At the end of the list, I have posted the dinners that come out of the ingredients and I also indicate if I already had some of the ingredients on hand (i.e. I didn't need to buy them at the stores):

Thanks for posting your fabulous list! It reminds me of mine in the sense that there are always Rob's foods...and then there are mine.
The luxury of being a man! :)
You noticed how much I LOVE plums! I think because they're such a good size and easy to take to work.
OH! And I meant to tell you that I got those boots at Zappos!
I have about six more pairs of shoes I want but I have to pace myself or my hubcap will get annoyed. :)

Oooo I like this idea! I think when Brian and I move it we will do the big shopping trips, now I just go whenever I need stuff, but I like your idea of planning out exactly what to cook!

Is this your weekly list? I think my mid month list looks like that, but then again, I only cook for one.

You are SO good to categorize! I always put my stuff down randomly, but then inevitably I always forget something and get really mad at myself. :-)

BTW - I tried the V8 Butternut Squash soup - so good! I bought the corn one to try, too. It is perfect because it is gettin' so chilly here!

The veggie pasta looks great! I am always in the mood for it. You are the workout queen! I exercise every day, but you go above and beyond! Good for you!
