We had some grilled chicken left over from the night before, so Chad made us some wonderful omelettes after church!
Monday: Hot Dogs, Brussels Sprouts & Pineapple
I'm really loving Brussels sprouts right now, so I roasted some with a little zucchini to add to our hot dog dinner. Since I was feeling kind, I only gave the kids zucchini and left the Brussels sprouts for Chad and me. And, I actually felt really hungry while I was preparing dinner, so I ate my hot dog bun (I did buy whole wheat for us on this night) with a little dipping sauce of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and pepper while I cooked. :-) Our hot dogs were scrumptious and nitrate free.
Tuesday: Breakfast for Dinner - Crepes with Strawberries & Cream, Scrambled Eggs, & Bacon
No picture...I'm pretty bummed because it looked gorgeous! And, before you start thinking I'm amazing, the crepes were store-bought. ;-) I just added in fresh strawberries and whipped cream.
Wednesday: Chicken Nuggets with Fruit & Veggies
Chad was gone, and I had exchanged Callen for my niece, Mabel, for a few days. I made kid food for their dinner, and a salad for myself.
Thursday: BBQ Sausage, Roasted Broccoli, & Sweet Potatoes
Turkey sausage with a little BBQ sauce & roasted veggies make for a simple, healthy, kid-friendly dinner. All 3 kids cleaned their plates!
Friday: Pizza & Movie Night
It was our usual Friday night pizza and movie night, but I wanted to make my portion of our Costco pizza a bit healthier, so I added spinach and tomatoes and drizzled that with a little olive oil before baking. I also take off about half of the pepperoni they add on because it seems a tad excessive. The kids had their pizza with fresh fruit.
Saturday: Sheet Pan Steak & Veggies
Since Chad was home after being gone for several days, I wanted us to have a delicious meal that felt fancy without all the fancy work on my part. ;-) This recipe from DamnDelicious for Sheet Pan Steak & Veggies seemed like a good one to give a shot! I actually really love her recipes, even though her blog name is a little crass. I also truly love a meal where clean up takes less time than actually eating the meal. :-) And, it was quite delicious! I still prefer my steaks grilled, but this is a fun change.
