Monday, October 3, 2011

So sorry for not posting this weekend.  We had a whirlwind of a late week & weekend.  Let's just say that our severe food allergy sweetie had a doozy of a day on Thursday & ended up getting picked up from school by 9am for hives, having 7 vials of blood drawn for new allergy testing (no tears!!), and ended the day with a broken arm, which was put into a cool, hot pink cast Friday morning.  Busy life with little sweeties never ends!  :-) to our eating for the week!

My oldest was ready early enough to have a whole wheat egg-free waffle spread with w/ pure maple syrup & peanut butter & milk to drink.  My youngest ended up eating Cheerios in the car & I had Multi-grain Cheerios in the car.  She had milk before we left & I had COFFEE (she hasn't slept well the past 2 nights, so neither has Mommy).

The girls both had wheat crackers, colby jack cheese cubes, satsumas, frozen Simply Gogurts, and watered down Simply Lemonade (coupon!!) in their Thermoses.  I had a Smart Ones Mini Rigatone w/ Vodka Cream Sauce.

The plan for tonight is to have Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets (16 oz packs of boneless, skinless chicken breasts are on sale NOW at Target - I'm going to make a double batch so we'll have leftovers, so I bought 2 packs).  I'll be making my own Italian seasoned whole wheat breadcrumbs (thanks to Sharon & Julie W. for telling me how easy this is) because Target only had the breadcrumbs with eggs in the ingredients.  I'll be making Oven Roasted Cauliflower, and possibly salad &/or sweet potato fries, if time & patience allow!

Dinners for the rest of the week:
Tues:  Leftover nuggets, cauliflower, salad and/or sweet potato fries.
Wed:  Dinner at church
Thurs & Fri: Crock Pot Ministrone Soup with turkey meatballs and crescent rolls (coupons for Progresso broth & crescent rolls are available online now!)
Sat:  Date night - girls will eat with their grandparents
Sun:  Leftovers

What did your family eat today & what do you plan to eat this week?


  1. The fam loved the nuggets & the girls ate the cauliflower, which is compliment enough, since they didn't have to eat it! :-) The hubby & I devoured the cauliflower! Both will be re-dos for our family!

  2. Last Saturday: Grilled Steaks, green beans & corn
    Sunday: Spicy grilled chicken tenders & grilled corn-on-the-cobb
    Monday: Cereal-your choice
    Tuesday: Cinnamon pancakes, bacon & strawberries

  3. All of that grilling sounds delish!! Yum! Thanks for sharing!
