Chicken cooked in the crockpot in bbq sauce and then shredded on high fiber buns. On the side, broccoli/carrots/cauliflower steamed with some cheddar melted over them. Dessert will be strawberries!

Tonight I made chicken lasagna, green beans, corn, and garlic bread. The lasagna was a new recipe, and I didn't care for it much, but the kids and DH liked it.

I'd slather them with bbq sauce but my kids don't like that... so I'd just sprinkle on some herbs and roast them.

We are having falafel, hummus, babaganouj, israeli salad, and pita

My kids love BBQ sauce so I might do that, but I'm making lentil and potato stew also so I think just roasting them might go better with that.

We had a super late lunch with my parents at Olive Garden and we are both still full. So I think we are skipping dinner tonight, and ds will have a bean and cheese burrito if he gets hungry.

I took the rest of the Mojo marinade I had from yesterday and started marinating a bunch of chicken tenderloins for tonight. I didn't have time to marinate the other chicken last night for too long so I'm hoping these have alot of flavor since they've been in the fridge with it for 12 hours.
I'm going to bread them and fry them tonight, yum!!

Not sure what I'll serve with them yet, maybe mashed potatoes and asparagus

eta- scratch that, I'm thinking black beans and rice with maybe some fried plantains

Monday night was Cioppino (red italian seafood stew) with antipasta
Tuesday night was Chili over whole wheat elbows & corn bread
Wednesday night I made whole wheat veggie pizza & buffalo chicken pizza with salad
Thursday night we had pork & chick pea curry over brown rice

They were all delicious & I even lost weight, I'm a weight watcher!!!

Last night, we had chicken curry over rice. It had cauliflower, this radish named muli, and peas in the curry.

Tonight is flat iron steak, salad, and baked potatoes. I have to make dh happy after the curry. LOL
