And the count down begins: this week preschool ends and there is only 3 weeks left of school for my two big kids! I cannot believe I am at the end of the preschool years. I seems like I just walked my big boy to his first day of preschool yesterday. Time really DOES fly when you’re having fun! (sigh)
This week be sure to check out Menu Plan Monday and the INSANE number of menu entries! Your bound to find some inspiration. For all gluten free menu plans, check out the Gluten Free Menu Swap hosted this week by Cooking & UNcooking. The theme ingredient is avocados. Tasty!
To simplify things for myself this week, I am cooking two of my meals (the turkey and beef) with the plan on saving part for another meal later in the week.
Monday: mommy volunteers at elementary school library/mommy works 5 hours./soccer practice/Boy Scouts (geo-caching!):
Balsamic Chicken with Spring Vegetables CrockPot Recipe and jasmine rice (from the fab Crock Pot Lady!) As I am posting this rather late in the day on Monday, we have already eaten this. Everybody loved it, even my picky girl! We had it with Jasmine Rice (I was in the mood for it), but she served it over quinoa, and I will try that next time. A keeper recipe for sure! Thank you, Steph!
(And just so you know, my hubby put it all in the crock as I didn’t have time to set it up today – probably because the girls and I had to go rescue Daddy and his bike this morning before the girls headed off to school…hmmmmm.)
Tuesday: End of the year preschool program/piano lessons/little league baseball game:
Rosemary and lime Roasted Turkey Breast, sweet potatoes and sautéed Garlic Spinach
Roast Beef (roasted with Peppers, Onions and Potatoes), salad with berries and balsamic vinaigrette
Thursday: End of the year preschool picnic (last day of preschool FOREVER! Whaaaaaaa!!!)/4th grade States Extravegandza:
Slow Cooking Thursday: Carmelized onions
Turkey, quinoa and spinach salad
Friday: Family small group Bible study:
Beef, Mango, Avocado and Broccoli Sprout Wraps
