Here's the run-down for the week...
Dinner at Maggiano's for our neighbor's birthday. Was our first time there, and we took advantage of their buy one get one for home deal. Here's some more info on the deal if you're around one of these and have been wanting to try them out!
Lunch: Pasta, peas, and parmesan; banana slices with peanut butter and currants. Aiden is not the biggest pb fan, but he *loved* having it this way! I just put a dab on each banana slice and topped it with some currants (a few, since they're so little - those things are so cute, though!). He could not get enough!
Dinner: Leftovers from Maggiano's. And there was still some left!
Lunch: More Maggiano's leftovers. Bread. Aiden really loves just plain bread!! And some green smoothie.
Dinner: Mini-Meatloaves (I need to post the recipe sometime because these things are GOOD), butternut squash puree, and sauteed asparagus. I didn't get to make rolls or anything, so we had some naan bread that we had on-hand. I love that the meatloaves are so freezer friendly. It makes 8, and since we're only using it for one meal this time (and I'm banning Ryan from eating more, as much as he wants to), I'll freeze the rest for another week. And I gotta say...I'm not a fan of squash (any kind - I keep trying and really want to like it, I do!), but this puree is pretty tasty - as in *really* good! Camden knew he wouldn't like it and admitted it was better than he expected. Aiden, who scarfed down multiple bowls last time I made it, wouldn't even try it. UGH. If he had, he would have loved it. I know it. So frustrating when they do that. This is my favorite meal of the week (so far, at least) - it's just SO bright and colorful! The meatloaves are red from the glaze on top, the bright orange squash, and the green asparagus...just so pretty!
Lunch: Tuna, apple, raisin salad on mini-pitas (that we've had on the menu forever and still haven't had), avocado.
Dinner: Chicken tortilla soup (that we had on last week's menu and didn't make)
Lunch: Tuna, apple, raisin salad on mini-pitas
Dinner: Pizza casserole - adding in some extras this time (mushrooms, bell pepper, some pepperoni), apples.
Lunch: Strawberry soup, Pita or crackers with peanut butter and raisins
Dinner: Either pizza casserole leftovers, or we'll freeze the leftovers and eat taco soup (that is in the freezer). We'll see.
Lunch: Various leftovers.
Dinner: Cheeseburgers (I've been wanting to try to make some veggie burgers - I have a recipe I found in a magazine, but if anyone has a recipe you know is great, please share! - but Camden made sure to request just regular beef burgers this week. Ha!), baked "fries," and smoothies or fruit.
I'm also wanting to make these pumpkin apple muffins and have had them on the menu for a couple weeks now. Hopefully we'll get to them this week!
For snacks, Aiden has been begging for "snack-a bars," so I finally made some more. He LOVES these things. Camden not-so-much. And Ryan likes them, too. Plus, they're nut-free so Daddy can have them. They're super easy, too!
