Happy New Year!

One kiddo had Cheerios mixed with vanilla yogurt, the other had Kix mixed with the same yogurt, and I had a Special K Meal Bar (great protein and fills me up pretty well).  On such a cold morning, I was thankful for a hot mug of coffee with some vanilla caramel creamer.

Morning Snack:
Pretzels and cookies at school for the youngest and me - not sure what the oldest had in her class.

The girls and I had peanut butter and all-fruit jelly on whole wheat and clementines.  The girls also had whole grain Goldfish crackers.

Afternoon Snack:
The girls and I had baggies of a snack I threw together in a hurry: whole grain Goldfish, peanuts, and raisins, and the girls had a juice box in the van on the way to dance. 

The hubby and kiddos had leftover thin cut top sirloin steaks that I cooked on the stove in butter and olive oil.  I seasoned them with TexJoy Steak Seasoning and salt and pepper.  Lesson learned: thin cuts of meat require much less seasoning than thick cuts.  :-)  I micro-steamed broccoli and cauliflower and added just a touch of butter and salt and pepper so the girlies would devour them.  This was all in service of using up the remainder of the Mexican Rice I made last week to go with our tacos and black refried beans.

What did your family eat today?
