  • Monday: Grilled Salmon, Sourdough and Corn on the cob.  Yum.
  • Tuesday: Beef Ranchero and Green Beans.  A family favorite that we haven't had in forever... because of the beef.  I made it with grass-fed, organic beef and it was fabulous!

I was out of town nearly this whole week, but I know that my hubby did feed the kids pretty well!

Week of April 18th:
  • Sunday:  We went out to eat
  • Monday:  Baked Halibut with crunchy topping, Haricot Verts and Quinoa. This meal went over quite well.  The kids are opening up to quinoa, finially!  Also, everyone ate their fish with Tarter Sauce, which is a first.
  • Tuesday:  Homemade Shrimp Potstickers and Peanut noodles.  This meal was a hot mess.  I liked the peanut noodles, but they turned out too spicy for the kids.  The potstickers were WAY too briney.  I guess potstickers are just one thing that has to be veg or pork... there is no substitution!  Too bad, because they were a lot of work!
  • Wednesday:  stomach virus!
