I went to Utah last week for a QUICK trip. The brevity of the trip didn’t stop me from eating more Provo Bakery donuts than any person should eat in a year. Or ever. Come to think of it, my trips to Utah always involve me eating oodles of delicious (and usually not so nutritious) food. I love it!

  13. 13

    I just started a new thing with my family. I’m getting tired of planning meals only to have my eight year old daughter and five year old son tell me they’ll have nothing to do with them. So I told them they have to start choosing one meal a week. Son’s night is Tuesday, daughter’s is Thursday. It’s nice not to have to decide on those nights! I still have to cook though… someday that will change!

    Monday: Shredded beef enchiladas (leftover from yesterday’s roast)

    Tuesday: Spaghetti with yummy crusty bread from Paradise and a salad

    Wednesday: Salmon, (from Costco, no less! LOL), asparagus, brown rice pilaf

    Thursday: Mexican Mix-up (basically taco “stuff” layered over broken up tortilla chips)

    Friday: Creamy veggie and ham soup in bread bowls.

    Saturday: date night – kids get pizza!

    Sunday: Roasted chicken and veggies with herb-roasted potatoes. Homemade wheat rolls.

  14. 14

    Katie, I love that idea. I think I’m going to start that with my kids. My almost 6 year old son eats almost anything, but my 3 year old refused to eat more that a bite of dinner 5 nights of the week.

    I haven’t been shopping for a while so here’s what’s coming out of my freezer and panrty.

    M: Turkey noodle soup
    T: Either Fajitas or Leftoever Pasta with Marinara from Sunday, depending on how long Kindergarten homework takes
    W: Either the Fajitas or Pasta (see Tuesday)
    Th: Breakfast night — German pancakes with warm strawberry sauce
    F: Hawaiian Pork with glazed sweet potatoes
    S: Leftovers
    S: DH is cooking!!!
