I have good news and bad news. Bad news is that I only have 4 days on my meal plan this week, Good news… it’s because we head off for our Hawaiian vacation on Friday – YIPPEEHURRAY!
Having just bought the most awesome book Eat Like a Dinosaur, my youngest cavekid and I browsed and noted all the recipes that took our fancy. I have to say we could have post-it noted all the sweets and treats A number of the main dishes were a little too adventurous for my kids but maybe if I follow the books suggestions of including the kids in the choosing, buying, preparing and cooking of the dishes then this may entice them to try something new and out of their comfort zone.
Here is this week’s meal plan…
Monday: Chicken nuggets, sweet potato fries with a side of apple and bacon slaw (all from Eat Like a Dinosaur)
Tuesday: Spaghetti with meatballs (from ELaD again)
Wednesday: Family dinner out!
Thursday: Chicken, sausage and very veggie stir – fry
Friday Breakfast: Waffles, sausage & bacon with a side of fresh fruit salad (mango, strawberries, apples, grapes, bananas
Some highlights of last week were making Angie’s Everyday Cookies. OMGosh to die for!!! My youngest was not convinced but the rest of the family are addicted!! Roo LOVED the Isernio’s Italian Chicken Sausage which we used in a few dishes last week. The stir-fry to the left below was one and then I also added it to a very tasty egg scramble too. It’s become a staple!!!
We are battling flu in our house right now, but I hope to review some of my meals this week and we are hoping to make it to Amazon Grill one night for family dinner as Miss Roo was too sick to go yesterday Please send us healing and healthy vibes this week. Flu in Hawaii would be better than flu in Seattle but what a shame that would be right?! Positive thinking!!!!
