You guys. My baby starts preschool this week. As our school is a parent co-op, I’ll be there for his first day as I’m the Parent Helper. It is still breaking my heart to think about how much he’s growing up. And next week when he’s there on his own, I’ll be a wreck.
All of that aside, here is the meal plan for the week:
We packed Applegate chicken nuggets for Ollie, along with fruit and some tomatoes from our garden. He was AWESOME at dinner.
roasted veggies/sweet potato and chicken.
No explanation needed. We put a homemade seasoning mix on everything and it was AH-MAZING.
dinner out for Mom & Dad and dinner at Mem & Grandpa’s for Ollie.
Date night! We’re headed back to our old stomping ground to see Michelle Wolf and will cash in a gift card for an affordable dinner somewhere before.
potato leek soup
This is a recipe from my sister-in-law. So easy! Saute 2 leeks with onion and garlic, add chopped potatoes and cauliflower and cover with broth. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are soft. Puree and serve!
breakfast for dinner
We asked Ollie what he wanted for dinner after his first day of school. His pick? GRANOLA! We will have homemade granola cereal, fruit, and some organic maple chicken breakfast sausage (a wonderful Costco find).
beef burgers in a lettuce wrap and carrot fries
My attempt at “healthing up” burgers is to use lettuce instead of buns. Carrot fries are roasted carrots with honey, salt, and pepper.
We’re headed to Boston for the Food Allergy Heroes Walk. Not sure if we are going to make dinner at the hotel or eat out.
There you have it! That’s our allergy-friendly meal plan for the week. You’ll see it is really quite basic. For the most part, it is healthy but some days are also simply fun or easy. To me, it’s all about balance. And honestly, some days it’s just a win if everyone is fed something!
