Just in case anyone wanted a peek at my menu for the week. I know that it helps me sometimes to see what others are having when I get in a rut. So here is what is on tap for the week.
Here are our 5 dinners.
1. Taco pasta - This was an easy to fix meal that everyone liked. Sides were fruit and fresh cucumbers.
2. Baked balsamic chicken
Roasted broccoli - maybe this recipe
3. Mac and cheese - Trying a new recipe and hoping its as good as the other one. GF mac and cheese can be very yummy!
Salad and/or raw veggies with dip
4. Taco Bowl - Good for a night when I have to leave early for play practice. Everyone can fix their own dinner as they like it. Good way to use some leftovers too. :)
5. Egg, polenta, salsa dish - polenta with a fried egg, black beans, sliced avocado and salsa on top. YUM! We may be having grits instead of polenta as I'm having a hard time finding that around here for some reason.
For breakfast we can have any of these options:
eggs and bacon
yogurt and granola
hot dog and fries
And look what I made tonight for the rest of the week! :D I'm really excited to try this out. You can read more about salads in a jar here.
Last week, two of my boys made a restaurant for us to enjoy for lunch one day! It was great. Pretty tablecloth, placemats, menus - the whole works! I am hoping to see this happen more often. :) We are working on cooking lessons a bit this summer at their request. I love having children that enjoy food and cooking!
Hope you are off to a great start for your week. I'll be posting the next couple of days some of my May catch-up and then its on to June. I'm getting there and hope to be fully caught up soon!
Have a great week!
