I haven't been following a meal plan, but instead shopping for a few meals I want to make "sometime" in the week and completely winging the rest. So, instead of posting a meal plan, I thought I would summarize what we ate and my family's like/dislike of it.
I took a few thighs out of the pan for the girls before adding the hot sauce. I accidentally over-salted the kale, but everything was still delicious and (for the second night in a row!!) both girls cleaned their plate with the help of a dollop of ranch dressing to dip everything in.
But, the star of the show was the salad that our friends brought. You can't tell from this picture, but it was chalk full of fresh spring fruits and veggies and covered in a fresh avocado based dressing. I had three servings of it and Cora stood above the bowl yelling "Moi!" (more) after each bite.
Thursday: swim lesson day.
Cora ate half the roasted broccoli and the rest of her meal was covered in harissa or siracha. She is so funny.
My mom and grandma ended up staying for dinner. This never would have been a meal I planned for guests, but it actually ended up tasting pretty good.
Also M&M cookies leftover from Easter. I cannot be trusted alone with them...
Looking back, everyone in the family loved every meal we made this week. This is not typical. I think the girls might be in a growth spurt. Or it might be that they are playing outside all day and more hungry for dinner. Or it might be the Trolls plates they received for Easter. Either way, I am calling this week a win!
Have a good week! See you on Monday for a weekend recap. <3
