John Ross looks so little here! Since they could eat solids my kids have not stopped eating. Meals come every 3-5 hours no matter what other work needs to be done or how long the day has already been. As much as I love fast food, it needs to remain a treat for both our the health of our bodies and the health of our checking account. That takes some planning.
For the busy women out there, here is my weekly menu! Mix, substitute and complement as necessary! Good stewardship of the body is as easy a little bit of whole wheat and a container of fresh spinach!
Monday: Crockpot Beef Roast Over Whole Wheat Egg Noodles
Tuesday: Family Date Night @ Chili's
Wednesday: Crockpot Vegetable Vindaloo Over Brown Rice and Chicken with Naan
Thursday: Sausage Potato Soup (but I leave out the heavy cream and use turkey sausage - swiss chard also works in place of kale), Spinach Salad, and French Bread
Friday: Fish Fry @ Church with My Family
Saturday: Raspberry-Chipotle Shredded Pork Tacos, Black Beans, Tortilla Chips and Salsa
Sunday: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Meatballs, Spinach Salad and French Bread
My favorite spinach salad right now is fresh spinach, grape tomatoes, and shredded cheese topped with some basil olive oil and freshly cracked pepper! Mangia!
