This Week's Meals and Being Prepared (Sept. 9-14, 2013)
I like being prepared. Don't you? ;-)
Okay, so maybe that above picture is a bit much; however, I sure can appreciate the same sentiment when it comes to food and having meals ready when I need them.
I am still doing great with weekend prep-work for the days coming ahead. I may not always make the time to share them here on this blog; but for now I'm committed to taking a few minutes to share what I'm doing here to make our family's life easier! So YAY for me to keep a written record of it (so I can repeat it again several weeks from now) and HOORAY for you if you're reading this and it helps your family too!
Here's what I did this weekend - I made a double batch of my fake tomato sauce (beet sauce). This is our replacement for tomatoes which my husband no longer eats. I made twice the amount; therefore I was able to freeze half of it for later! I used the beet sauce as a base to make this pizza zucchini recipe and a chicken Parmesan one this week too.
Because I felt like changing up our snacks and treats, I tried out a new banana bread with a hint of pear and also an upside down berry cake too.
In addition, I made a different pancake for breakfast too which the girls and I enjoyed. It was very filling - These chocolate peanut butter pancakes!
So this is the lineup for the next several days:
Breakfast this week - Alternate chocolate-peanut butter pancakes with scrambled eggs or a veggie omelet
Lunches this week - Alternate Leftovers of the following:
Chicken Parmesan over spaghetti squash noodles and spinach
Pizza Zucchini with salad
Jambalaya Stew - which I had in my freezer fron a few months ago, yippee!
Dinners this week - Dirty rice with green beans,
Mexican Meatza with salad
Grilled fish with sweet potato and mixed veggies
Big salads, breakfast quiche or take-out on the other nights
Snacks and treats this week - Banana Bread
Upside down berry cake
Oh joy, it's going to be a great week, at least as far as the food goes! ;-)
Have a good one!
