Last week’s meal plan looked good on paper (or on a screen). In reality, only two of my intended dinners were actually made. As much as I like to have a plan – it certainly helps with grocery shopping, sometimes the taste buds just don’t agree with what’s on the menu, so I compromise and meals get moved around. But I am hoping to get back on track this week. Here’s how the week is looking on paper (ergh…screen):
Sunday: Broccoli cheese bites
Monday: Meatless Monday – Mushroom Pizza
Tuesday: Girls’ Night out
Wednesday: Pork cutlets with sauteed peppers and beans
Thursday: Chicken orzo skillet
Saturday: Hummus crusted chicken and mash potatoes and steamed broccoli
Kiki and kept very busy on Sunday – we had places to be , people to see, so dinner was quick. Since broccoli is her favorite at the moment, I quickly put together broccoli cheese bites. Needless to say she LOVED it!!!
Perfect little dinner or lunch when in a pinch and you want your kid to gets some protein and veggies. Since Kiki seems to be a semi-vegetarian (by choice), this is perfect for her.
