Clyde: "Mommy, is tonight an assigned dinner?" Michael and I have been laughing about his terminology. I think it comes from the fact that they have assigned seats on their school bus. We are still moving forward with our family dinners three times a week. I must say it is nice to have it fully planned for an entire month but it took me quite a bit of time yesterday to get my plan figured out and I am still short two family dinner meals at the end of the month! I have linked the recipes below.
Chicken Tortilla Soup
"Fried" Green Beans
Homemade Chickfila Nuggets
Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Quick Ham & Bean Soup
Spicy Sausage Pasta
We had the Weelicious Chicken Tortilla Soup tonight (it was yummy and easy) and Avocanana Muffins which were requested from Camille. She made them this summer in a cooking class at Young Chef's Academy. Here's how I deconstructed their meals, I got this tip from Dinner: A Love Story. Clyde ate all the chips and some of the muffin. Camille had one and a half muffins, all the chips and most of the cheese. We have been allowing Clyde a back up meal but give him only one or two options that we have selected and that we know he likes to choose from (pastrami slice, turkey slice, blueberry gogurt, clementine).
In other news, we decorated inside for Halloween. I cleaned out my attic last week only to discover that Halloween is second to Christmas in terms of the number of decorations we own! Do you see our kitty, Piper, snoozing? She has been very interested in all the decorations on that mantle and most of them have seen the ground a few times.
If you have any dinner meals that you family loves, please share them! Hope you have a great week!
