We just got back from a week of R & R with my parents, and it was so nice to have some time to reconnect as a family and have some long talks with our kids. Something about vacation, and being out in nature seems to bring out some fruitful conversations. It is so important to take that time out, because regular life can get so hectic and those moments seem fewer and fewer.
We also enjoyed some yummy foods! My mother makes these fabulous "Party meat pies" that are scrumptious!
She also makes the best bbq pork sandwiches that are so juicy and flavorful.
One night we tried a Taste of Home's recipe for Turkey meatloaf, and it was awesome!
I don't think I'll get on the scale for a few days! It was good while it lasted though. Ok, on to this weeks meal plan:
Breakfast Options: (Any combination of the following)
Egg whites and spinach (hubby's choice)
(We like to add fruit and/or carrots to any of these "entrees")
Pasta (My kids love it)
Macaroni and cheese
Vegetarian corn dogs
Chicken, turkey or ham sandwiches
Graham crackers and milk
Peanut butter and fluff sandwiches
Whole wheat toast
Yogurt or cheese sticks, crackers
Leftovers from dinner
Scrambled eggs and fixings
Soup and grilled cheese
Brown beans and cornbread and fixings
Fish, pierogies and fixings
Have a great week everyone!
