It’s another Monday, and luckily no traveling for us this week. Yippee! I wanted to try a few new recipes but really only found one and it’s not even vegetarian. Luckily I have some ground turkey that I want to use up. For those of you keeping track (and that would be…no one…), we made our goal of eating at home four days a week, despite traveling three days last week – woohoo! We had exactly what the plan said; homemade pizza, Tofu, Bean Burritos (oh except without the kale – it’s still sitting in my fridge), and egg rolls and salad! Yay for us!
I did feed Miss K. some store bought food on our trip – we tried Plum Organics and it was easy. And she liked it. Sigh. Some part of me wanted her to hate it so that I would feel better about all the effort I exert to make her food (ok fine – it’s not really that hard. Just feels that way sometimes). But she’s a flexible little bugger and she sucked it down. Also bought her Baby Mum-Mums. But not a six pack (disregard that). She liked those too. These things are pretty cool – they don’t crumble and make a mess. It’s one of the the few foods that she can hold and eat; usually she just has small pieces of finger foods. It was cute – she just kept looking at it and eating it and then examining it again. I don’t know why I feel bad about feeding her the store bought foods…I just do. At some point she’s going to eat “normal” food. And she does drink formula twice a day, after all. That’s totally processed. I think my mom fed me gerber baby food from a jar and look at me…I’m fine. Well, no I’m not. I love sugar and fried foods and sweets and all that to the point that I have to set goals to change my ways. I even write about it because it’s so hard to stop eating this stuff for me. But my mom’s not to blame for that. It’s my personal indulgence.
Back on topic – So what’s for dinner this week? Well let’s see here I have a feeling the meals won’t end up on these days but that’s ok:
Sunday: Japanese take – out (I didn’t care for this dinner very much. Should have stuck with tried and true Vegetable rolls)
Monday: Soup and Sandwiches
Tuesday: Pad Thai
Wednesday: Cheeseburger Macaroni & Broccoli, Avocado and tomato salad
Saturday: Arroz con Pollo
