It’s our first full week of school this week! I can’t believe we’re already back in the swing of things, but I’m also glad. We only had a little over two months this summer, but towards the end — well we can just say that we weren’t wanting to do anything except melt into the carpet. It is pretty hot here in Florida and it isn’t likely to get cooler for months, so time to get some of those 180 days out of the way!
My grocery budget has evaporated almost completely already this month, so I’m getting creative with what I have in my pantry and freezer! I have plenty, so time to make use of it!
Breakfast has gotten to be a ticklish subject, but thankfully I remember French toast sticks and the princess has been eating those down pretty much everyday. I’m very thankful.
Toddler French Toast Sticks –of course I used gluten free bread and almond milk. I love that it has pumpkin in it! Extra veggies without a fuss!
Blueberry Pumpkin Muffin Bars–it might be a bit early for fall, but I don’t care! These bars are AMAZING!
For me: I made this strange hamburger helper that was amazingly delicious, but no one else liked it. To bad for them! It has lentil noodles and a couple of veggies so I’m going to be eating that and leftovers and any other days left I will have a bacon sandwich on grain free bread.
Princess: decided to start the school year off with bacon sandwiches. Of course. And after a bit of attitude adjusting she chose green beans as her veggie.
Chicken salad on lettuce or spinach
Pan seared Ahi tuna, zoodles, and coleslaw: do you know the Princess actually ate zucchini in noodle form last week? This is the person who refuses to eat any veggie that isn’t corn this summer. Of course we are having them again!!
pancakes–from Against All Grain’s Celebration Cookbook
Italian sausage with apples, onions and saurkraut
Steak chef salad
Sticky chicken with mashed potatoes and veggies
Leftovers (or soup or a snack supper)
Pizza: I’m not sure how I’m going to do pizza–the last few weeks have either been daiya pizza at the last minute, comfort food after a tough week (chicken, green beans, and rice!) or whatever I can scrap together that doesn’t feel like cooking. So we’ll see what happens Friday.
Snack: I’m hoping to make these Turmeric Bites. Just not sure if I have all the ingredients.
