We had meatloaf, mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes, and salad. Everything but the salad was really disappointing but I have a stash of Girl Scout cookies with which to console myself after the kids go to bed. :

We had whole wheat couscous with roasted vegetables (yellow and orange peppers, artichoke hearts, asparagus, red onion. I cooked the couscous in vegetable broth, olive oil, and freshly squeezed lemon juice. After the couscous was done, I stirred in fresh basil and parmesan cheese. The roasted veggies were served over the couscous.

It was really, really good.

Pretty sure it'll be leftovers tonight of last nights baked pasta. However, different veggies on the side and maybe some watermelon, too.

This week's menu:

Mon: Lentil-Rice casserole (green lentils and brown rice simmered in chicken stock topped with shredded cheddar cheese), Greek salad
Tue: for Bible study at our house, I just pre-made a TexMex casserole (taco meat, baked beans, corn tortillas, cheese, salsa)
Wed: Grilled ham and cheese, fruit
Thur: Spicy Basil Chicken (a delicious dish from a Thai restaraunt I am always trying to duplicate), quinoa, broccoli
Fri: out for our date night at a little hole-in-the-wall but delicious taco shop
Sat: Meatloaf patties, home-made baked sweet potato fries, coleslaw

Happily married to DH for 6 years, in process to foster-adopt 3 children DD4, DS3 and DS2. We may be bringing half brother age 9 one day as well! We are not infertile, we just have decided that since there are precious children who need homes there is no need for us to have biological children.

Absolutely! I do have to say though, this is my first time making this cheesecake and I haven't tried it so it very well could be nasty. It smelled amazing though, nasty food surely couldn't smell that good!

** subbing for ideas **


so far April has been PB Sandwiches, and Quesadillas with spring-greens salad. :

(In my defense I've been very very sick.)

But some different food might be nice.

Last night I made a barbecued chicken with Great Northern beans in the crockpot, and it was soooo good! The barbecue sauce I had was pretty spicy, so the girls didn't really eat much.
