Meal 7: Pan-roasted Greek chicken, hummus, pita bread, and a Greek salad made from cucumbers, grape tomatoes, kalamata olives, red onion, olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt and pepper.
Kaitlyn: Ate the pita bread first, then all the salad. Had a small swipe at the hummus and maybe 3 bites of chicken.
Hailey: Ate it all, asked for seconds and thirds of the salad. It’s her favorite, just like her mama!
Meal 8: Oatmeal made with flax milk and cinnamon with a topping sampler on the side: brown sugar, coconut sugar, and raisins.
Kaitlyn: Tried to eat just the toppings, but begrudgingly added them to her bowl and ended up eating 3/4 of the breakfast.
Hailey: Ate it all, asked for extra raisins.
Meal 9: Chicken piccata with spinach and artichokes over rotini with roasted green beans.
Kaitlyn: Really liked it! Ate most of the meal happily.
Hailey: Really liked it, too. Ate it all.
Meal 10: Dave’s Killer Bread English muffins with Kerrygold butter, Sumo citrus mandarins, blueberries, and elderberry syrup (a breakfast staple during the cold months).
Kaitlyn: Inhaled it.
Hailey: Inhaled it. Have you tried Sumo citrus mandarins yet? My kids are obsessed. So sweet and delicious!
Meal 11: Baked chicken thighs in this marinade, roasted potatoes, sauteed garlicky spinach, mushrooms, and asparagus.
Kaitlyn: Ate the chicken and potatoes, then picked out two mushrooms and ate those.
Hailey: Ate the chicken and potatoes, then picked out the asparagus and mushrooms and ate those.
Meal 12: Lemon dill salmon, roasted Brussels sprouts, tomatoes, and butternut squash, and a rice quinoa blend from Seeds of Change.
Kaitlyn: Ate the rice and quinoa, a couple Brussels sprouts (too soggy she said), and two bites of salmon. I should know to stick with this salmon marinade if I want the kids to eat it happily.
Hailey: Ate the rice and quinoa, one “squishy” tomato, a Brussels sprout or two, and all the salmon (but only because “it makes her smart” not because she liked it- haha).
I’ve been working my way through the new Eat What You Love Cookbook, which is where a few of these recipes come from. I’m taking after my mom and writing down our reviews directly IN the cookbook. I feel like such a rebel, but I’ve always loved that my mom’s recipes books have notes and reviews on them. It makes it easy to remember which ones are worth making again!
