We did bacon-wrapped pork chops and baked potatoes tonight - so good.
Dinner - What Are You Having? - Page 82
Last ngiht we did perogies and raw veggies and hummus. Turns out only ds ate
Tonight we had tacos with homemade refried beans,guac and salsa. Turns out dds wouldn't eat tonight.
I've near given up on cooking during this pregnancy. It's just too much work and too much mess for no one to eat or help with
So today we had scaled potatoes and smoked sausage. I forgot the salad. We can have it with the pizza tomorrow.
The big kids went to a birthday party. Little one is still too sick. So I figured it'd be a cereal and fruit dinner. Oldest dd begs for "saladey cups"
Sauteed tofu and raman noodles in a hoison/pb/lemon sauce. With shredded carrot,sliced cukes,radish,green onions,peppers. Also steamed some broccoli and asparagus. Toss it all together and put it into an iceberg lettuce cup. It's a quick and really easy recipe when you use a food processor. But still too much work for what I wanted to do. But I did it.
Call the kids to the table. Ds ate FOUR!!!! Youngest dd picked a bit. Oldest dd who begged for it then told me "I'm too tired. I'm going to bed now."
Dh comes home from work and he's got a nasty cold and has a gig tonight so he went straight to bed leaving his dinner on the table.
Last night I made a tortilla lasagna in the slow cooker. I used up the leftover refried beans/salsa/and diced veggies from the tacos the other day. We had it with salad using up some avocado and leftover tortilla chips. Ds again inhaled it. I thought it was yummy. Dh can't taste anything. Youngest dd ate most. Oldest dd took a bite. Sigh
I asked oldest dd what she would like for dinner. She said soup. Chickpea rice soup. We'll see if she eats it. I'm basing it on this recipe but turning it veggie.
The soup last night was a flop. My tummy wanted NOTHING to do with it. Dh couldn't taste it. Neither dd would eat it. Ds had almost 2 bowls. I honestly think he sees Mommy about to break down and lies and says he likes whatever I make....he learns from his Daddy
Now I have 3 sick kids. Big kids have ear infections. Ds's ear is pussing and nasty. I've got the peroxide and evoo/tea tree oil/garlic blend in his ear.
Tonight for dinner is "feel better soup" which is sauteed onion,garlic,ginger blended with homemade broth and then reheated with miso. I used 3 heads of garlic,2 onions and a massive piece of ginger. Kids won't eat it if they see the chunks but once it's all blended it gets sweet and creamy and quite delish. they'll hopefully gobble it up
I've done a meal plan for the next couple weeks but with the kids weird eating and the stores being closed on the only 2 days I can go shopping I'm really not sure what I'm going to do. I've almost given up on cooking all together
Last night the kids had toast and fruit for dinner...sigh
Crazy busy day here so we picked up a rotisserie chicken while we were doing grocery shopping and had it with canned green beans. I'll likely do something simple like fish sticks tomorrow since husband goes to work in the afternoon and I have a minor procedure being done in the morning, so I am not going to feel like cooking. Sunday we're doing a baked ham with honey and white wine for Easter dinner, with croissants and French potato salad. And dyed hard boiled eggs of course!
What's everyone else doing for Easter dinner on Sunday?
