Lunch: Strawberry soup, banana dog bites, raisins. Now...the banana things aren't anything too out of the ordinary. Camden's even tried to take a banana wrapped in a tortilla with peanut butter. But his complaint was that the banana kept slipping out! Sometimes it takes a smack..or someone posting on their website...to have the light bulb go off: slice it! Aiden, who won't eat anything that involves a tortilla (no quesadillas...seriously!) and is iffy about peanut butter..who also will beg for a banana and then eat a couple bites and play enough with the rest that it's trash...that kid loved these things! He ate every single bite, except for the one I had to try it. (I'm sitting here right now eating the mama-version...nutella instead of pb. Oh it's yummy. Though really...I would be happy eating a banana with nutella on a spoon. Or just the nutella.)
Dinner: Veggie stir fry w/ rice, apple slices. (And yeah, technically this isn't vegetarian, since it uses chicken broth..but you can switch that for a different broth to make it really veggie.) ;)
Lunch: Strawberry soup (I always make enough for Aiden to have two meals and for Camden to take it on the second day, too), and either more banana dog bites or pb on bread with raisins. I'm guessing Aiden will go for the banana bites.
Dinner: Mini-meatloaves (pulled from the freezer, already cooked), asparagus, and the yummiest roasted potatoes. Camden goes crazy for these potatoes. Seriously. It's a Pioneer Woman recipe - doesn't that automatically make it delicious??
Lunch: Quesadillas, avocado, green smoothies. Ok, Camden will have quesadillas. So will Mommy. Aiden...I'll try, but he'll probably turn his nose up at it.
Dinner: Taco Salad
Lunch: Wait and see. Aiden's egg-challenge and allergy testing is this morning, and there's no telling how long we'll be there - a couple hours minimum.
Dinner: Lentil Veggie Soup, "really big biscuits" (from Family Feasts for $75 a week - great biscuits!), fruit
Lunch: There should be some leftovers in the fridge by now...
Dinner: Italian Sausage Soup (a new recipe we're trying from the Family Feasts book mentioned above). This is one of Camden's picks for the week.
Over the weekend, I made the pumpkin apple muffins, and they have been a huge hit. Aiden loves muffins of any kind pretty much, but he's smitten by these. I have a feeling I'll be making them again before the week is over. I used honey instead of agave as the sweetener - it's cheaper, for one thing.We also had the chicken tortilla soup last week, and everyone really liked it, even the kids. I added black beans, and I already had cooked chicken chopped up and frozen from when I recently made chicken broth (which decreased cooking time). Next time I'll definitely be making a double batch so we at least get a couple meals out of it.
What's on your menu this week?
