I want spring, I want it bad. I also want to get out of the meal rut we are currently in. So, I’m trying some new things this week folks, look out! I’ll try and link up recipes when I have them and you can check out my Pinterest boards for more ideas and inspiration.
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 quiche.
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. For toddler lunch ideas, check this out.
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 3/17/14
Monday: Roast chicken in the crock pot with veggies
Wednesday: Macaroni and cheese with peas and ham (every week I put this on the menu and never end up making it, not this time!)
Thursday: Some sort of breakfast for dinner
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.
