Here we go again! I’ll try and link up recipes when I have them and you can check out my Pinterest boards for more ideas and inspiration.
This is another one of those crazy weeks for us because I will be at a work training through dinner time on Monday and Thursday. I’m planning things that Ian will be able to manage while wrangling the Tilda-beast and Fenway on his own.
Breakfasts: We have a variety of breakfast items kicking around the house and pick and choose as we go. This week we have yogurt, cereal, and maple oatmeal scones.
Lunches: I typically pack our lunches the night before. Most of the time it is leftovers from dinners but some of our other favorites include, english muffin pizzas, quesadillas, crackers and hummus, and sandwiches.
Dinners: I plan these out one for each night. Typically we’ll have a “breakfast for dinner” night once a week and at least one “meatless meal”. I try to stick to traditional real food (no food dyes, artificial coloring, flavoring, or sweeteners) I also try to make as much from scratch as possible, it is cheaper that way and I can control the type and source of my ingredients.
Note: Tilly eats the same things we do because 1. I don’t want to make extra work for myself and 2. I want her to be exposed to lots of different flavors and textures. I just make sure things are cut into pieces she can handle.
Week of 1/20/14
Monday: Pasta and sauce (Ian is on his own)
Tuesday: Hamburgers and mixed veggies
Thursday: Scrambled eggs and toast with peach butter that I canned last summer
Friday: We usually grab sandwiches before heading to Fenways “puppy play date” with Randy the bulldog. We visit with friends, watch hockey (go Bruins!) and Fenway and Randy chase each other around the house. Everyone is happy.
Saturday: Fried rice with veggies
