It's also been a busy week of cooking. Monday I whipped up a big batch of smoothies so the girls can have them for breakfast. I blend frozen strawberries, blueberries, peaches, bananas, chopped spinach, yogurt and milk. They love these for breakfast. I'm also going to make a batch of waffles to freeze and pop in the toaster. I also made a batch of spaghetti sauce, (still needs some tweaking, I think leaving out the Bay Leaf will help), two loaves of honey wheat bread, and two dozen cinnamon rolls for this weekend. Rachel came up to me yesterday and said, "mama, I love your homemade food!"
I started setting out a fruit/veggie/cheese platter for when the kids get home from school. It's not quite snack time yet when they come home, but they're always starving, so I figured this was a great way to get more healthy snacks into them! Then they usually will have some crackers, applesauce, yogurt or cereal bars.
Tonight we are having tacos, per Rachel's request. I'm not sure what we'll have tomorrow. This is what's on board for this week:
Monday- Lunch- Grilled cheese pie with ham, raw veggies, homemade bread
Supper- Camper's Hash- which is like an egg skillet with cheese, hashbrowns,
and sausage links
Tuesday- Lunch- Hamburger hotdish, raw veggies, homemade bread
Supper- Beef Roast with potatoes and carrots
Wednesday- Lunch- Tuna sandwiches, potato wedges, veggies
Supper- Homemade pizza, probably sausage
Thursday- Lunch- Sloppy joes, brown rice with veggies, homemade bread
Supper- Beef stroganoff- I'm going to try a crockpot recipe this time, we'll see how it goes!
Friday- Lunch- Calico beans, grilled cheese, veggies
Supper- Not sure, maybe venison sausage?
Next weekend we will be a friend's of ours overnight for our "Gourmet Club". We get together about once/twice a year to make a yummy gourmet meal together, it's a blast!
