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 english muffins.
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 2/10/14
Monday: Ian has band practice so Tilly and I will probably have oatmeal or something else that he finds disgusting.
Tuesday: Hamburgers and sweet potato wedges. *All our beef is grass fed and comes from a local farm. We order a mixed “freezer box” and it lasts us 9-10 months.
Thursday: omelets with whatever veggies we have kicking around and sausage
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: Date night! (I’ll pack Tilly something easy for Grandma and Grandpa to heat up)
