Healthy {Paleo} Meal Plan

Winter has hit us. It's the strangest thing. We have had a few snowfalls, actual snow sticking on the ground, and lots of ice. Prior to this month, winter was no where to be seen and we were hoping that we'd be able to make it through this season with zero snow. Mostly for house construction purposes, but alas, Dutch weather rarely cooperates and in fact is more likely than not plotting against everyone. No really, it's kind of a fact. 

Okay, maybe, perhaps I am exaggerated a teeny bit, but it really has surprised me that we are now actually having winter when I am totally ready for spring summer. I'm even prepping spring themed activities for my toddler's shelves. Not to mention planting stuff in the garden.


The thought of actually going on holiday in the summer also seems particularly nice. And - the biggest thing - our house should *hopefully* be livable by then. 


Not that it would be done by any stretch of the imagination but we'd be able to park a bed/mattress/some thing to sleep on somewhere and have access to water and heat. Those are really important things to have working properly in a house, huh? 


Yes, they are and I totally took them for granted before they were lacking in our new house. But well, we're lucky enough now in that we can decide where everything will be because all of the pipes and all have to be ... placed somewhere? It all just requires a lot of patience and that is something that my husband and I seem to be running low on. 


I'm kind of thinking of suggesting an anniversary get away for a weekend (our anniversary is the weekend after Valentine's Day). But then, we wouldn't be here to work on the house so it's quite a dilemma. Any suggestions? Go somewhere for a night or work on the house? 


Enough rambling, here's what we'll be eating this week:
