I think my kids like our weekly menu plan just as much as I do. Almost every morning or afternoon I see them go into the kitchen and look at the list on the bulletin board to see what is for dinner that night. Most of the time (but not always) they walk away saying, “Yesssssss!”
Last week they got particularly excited about Breakfast For Dinner. We’ll have to do that more often!
This week when I asked everyone for their ideas I got “Paninis?” from Erik, “Pasta!” from Jace, and “Salad! Omg, salad sounds so good right now!” from Cameron.
Ask and you shall receive, my loves!
Monday: Veggie & Cheese Paninis with Salad and Roasted Veggies–I have some delicata squash, beets, and carrots I am itching to roast up. I also might try my hand at making gluten free bread so I can have a panini too.
Tuesday: Leftover Apple Chili–A busy night with soccer practice and an event at school will make it a perfect night for leftovers from Sunday’s dinner. I will make some pasta for Jace because he doesn’t like beans.
Wednesday: Vegetarian Phở–Last night we were walking in to a Halloween store and as we passed a Phở restaurant in the parking lot, Cameron said, “Mom, you should make yours again–that was so good!”
Thursday: Quinoa & White Bean Stuffed Acorn Squash with Roasted Brussels Sprouts–I am a week late for adding acorn squash to the menu (per last week’s challenge) but here it is. I can’t wait!
Friday: Homemade Pizza Friday!–It never gets old, I swear.
Saturday: We have tickets to The Haunted Theater (a local ballet performance where they decorate the theater and backstage and everyone wears costumes–it’s so fun and one of our Halloween traditions) and then we will probably go out for dinner afterwards. I’m thinking Thai food.
Sunday: We are hosting our annual pumpkin carving party with our extended families during the afternoon/evening so we’ll munch on the plentitude of snacks I will prepare. One of which will be this:
As well as these Healthy Halloween No Bake Balls Pumpkins:
