Still more busy weeks ahead for us. That’s always the case come spring when we have a garden to tend to and lots of outdoor projects. We’ve got an over abundance of eggs so the road side sign is going out and 3$ will get you a dozen farm fresh eggs. We’ve been working on teaching Tilly to try new things and branch out a bit more You can see how that’s going on our facebook page. 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 homemade yogurt, cereal, and english muffins. We’ve been on a big oatmeal kick lately so I’ll have plenty of that ready to go too.
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.
