Tuesday, October 18, 2011

The girls & I had peanut butter and local honey on 100% whole wheat toast.  The girls had milk and I had coffee (very much needed today).

The girls had natural turkey sandwiches on 100% whole wheat bread with grape tomatoes and apple slices.  They had diluted 100% apple juice to drink.  I had another Smart Ones for lunch.

Afternoon Snack:
Honestly, I don't remember what we had for snack.  I know that I had a massive caffeinated beverage to make it through the afternoon!

We were blessed to have a dear friend from church over for dinner, who was willing to be a guinea pig, along with the rest of our family, when we tried Sweet Peas and Pumpkin's Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala for the first time ever.  I served it with brown basmati rice, Italian blend salad mix (romaine & red cabbage) with grape tomatoes, and flatbread.  We had chocolate cookes & ice cream for dessert. 

This recipe for tikka masala was very true to what I've tried in local Indian restaurants, but kid-friendly, in that it's not spicy (peppery hot), so the children's palates are introduced to new flavors without the assault of pain. :-)  If you like Indian food without the kick, I highly recommend this recipe!

Here are some pictures from our fun night:
The flowers and dessert are ready!

Preparing the table.
(Yes, the plastic covers are still on the chairs & I plan to leave them there until the girls are older, since the girls are so very good at spilling on ivory fabric!)

Dinner's ready!


We had a lovely time and the girls had joyful input into each step of the process!  They LOVE having special guests for dinner, and they love being little hostesses!  We look forward to more dinners with special guests!

What did your family eat today?
God bless!
