i actually have dinner planned already... a miracle in my life! the kids helped plan the meal, so it's a little all over the map. lol. but at least they'll eat it!
- crock pot chicken breasts (i just toss them in the crock pot with a little water and the kids choice of sauce... today they chose a rib and chicken bbq sauce).
- crumbed cauliflower (boil cauliflower until it's soft, put it in a lightly greased casserole dish, cover with liberal amounts of italian seasoned breadcrumbs and shredded cheese, pop in the oven until cheese is melted).
- peas and corn in toast cups (take crusts off bread slices, lightly butter both sides, push into muffin tins and fill with peas or corn or whatever veggie tickles your fancy. bake until bread is golden brown.)
for lunch I made a simple pasta with a tomato & beef sauce.
saute (using olive oil) some fresh parsley minced, with a small onion & clove of garlic (left whole), than I brown some ground beef. Once meat has cooked through, I added a can of plum tomatoes (these were organic) which I cut up in small pieces. Salt & pepper to taste.
very fresh tasting, very delicious. Just top that with some parmesan cheese and a nice salad on the side and you're all set.
