Last week was a bit of a blur. We were sick some more, but we managed to get all our meals in more or less. Time for another busy week! I am super glad I menu plan because otherwise meal time would be beyond stressful.
The theme for the GF Menu Swap over at Celiac Family is butternut squash! I don’t have butternut squash on the menu this week, but I certainly love it. The only thing I don’t love about it is trying to wrestle it open/peeled to cook it! It was particularly tempting looking at the farmer’s market this week. I’m working on October’s menus, so I will certainly add some dinners with butternut squash! Some of our favorites with butternut squash are: Portuguese soup and this recipe from Peas and Thank You. This recipe is one I’m going to dust off soon from Oh She Glows! It’s what convinced me to start wrestling with butternut squash in the first place!
This week I’ll be working mornings all week making it necessary to switch cooking from midday to evening. I picked out simple, quick meals so that I don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen! The breakfast choice for this week was boiled eggs and sausages for the Princess. I of course will be having some different things, but it certainly is handy having her breakfast all planned out and cooked ahead of time. One less thing to think about when dashing out the door in the morning!
Breakfast: My favorite breakfast casserole: Healthy Breakfast Apple Casserole!
Lunch: Sloppy Joes/Lentil Sloppy Joes over spinach with chips. (We missed making this during the week.)
Supper: Broccoli, canned fish, apple sauce, pickles
Veggie Pot Pie over mashed sweet potatoes instead of the biscuits (chicken breast for the meat eaters!)
Potato Soup (I plan on making this vegan and hopefully sharing the recipe later this week!)
Shrimp Teriyaki Stir Fry
sandwiches maybe with this chocolate shake
Simple Baked Fish, rice pilaf, roasted beets cooled and topped with balsamic vinegar and sea salt
Smoothie (I’m in love with this smoothie!), Popcorn
