And I am SO not ready for this week- weekends are fun when busy, but I have to be very careful to have a plan when I return so that we don't just eat JUNK/ so we have fresh food available, and so I have enough time AND ENERGY!!! to cook something!!! (I am barely there, but faking it until I make it).
Sunday: sweet potatos, cottage cheese and beans. (just got back in town and needed a low key/ quick and healthy plan.)
Monday: Spinach "burgers", homemade applesauce, whole grain apple bread, and carrots. Yes, again a hodge podge, but we need some veggies and these spinach burgers pack in the spinach and the kids LOVE THEM! I am making homemade applesauce in crockpot and haven't ever done this before... whole grain apple bread was a recipe that made 2 loaves a few weeks ago, and I am just pulling it out of freezer!
***recipe for spinach burgers is pitifully simple: jam a half bag at least of spinach into food processor and push button. now mix that with 1 egg, 1/4 whole wheat bread crumbs (if you want to add anything spices, any basil or other herbs, feel free to). then put 1/4 cup amounts on a skillet for 1-2 minutes/side and they make little patties. My kids call them either spinach burgers or pancakes and they gobble them up and I cannot believe it!! They are great little snacks also.
Tuesday: pumpkin pancakes (this is in the middle of 2 soccer practices, so can be an easy make and eat/reheat if needed for some!)
Wednesday: Taco salad w/ ground turkey.
Thursday: fat free refried beans/cheese on whole wheat tortillas... again... a meal in the car for half the family.
Friday: fish, steamed zucchini and broccoli, pumpkin muffins.
Saturday: ryan and forrest out to boy scout camp/ phoebe is out with a friend.. i'll be on my own and will have a nice salad with lentils/tomato/feta since noone else loves this as much as i do!
