Menu, Week of 11/3



Yesterday, I took my kids to Laumeier Sculpture Park, where we met up with their former stepmother and their little brother for a nice walk to through the woods while looking at art. It was a perfect day for it–crisp but not cold and sunny. The girl did whine a bit about the exercise aspect of the outing, but later she described it as a lovely afternoon. The boy and I just enjoyed being outside and moving around, and we all loved seeing their little brother and his mom.

On the way home, the kids tried hard to convince me that we should go out to eat, and I must admit I was tempted. We spent the weekend doing craft projects, so the dining room table was pretty covered, and I had not yet made a plan for dinner. In the end, though, financial prudence (not to mention healthy food choices) won out and we ate at home. Go me!

Sunday: Coconut-peanut chicken curry with broccoli and spinachphoto

Monday: Baked Lemon-Garlic Chicken Thighs, sauteed kale and bacon, broccoli salad

Tuesday: Fish almondine, cole slaw

Wednesday: Salmon casserole with green beans and cauliflower

Thursday: Feta Stuffed Meatloaf with Tzatziki sauce (made with ground beef), or a Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf, depending on my mood, ;), buttered broccoli and caulifower, cole slaw

Friday: Bratwurst, buttered broccoli, cole slaw, sauteed musrooms

Saturday: We are going to two parties, one in the afternoon, one in the evening, so we shouldn’t need a dinner
