I've been a busy bee in the kitchen this week. With only a month left before baby #4 shows up, the nesting instinct has kicked into full gear. I've got pizza dough, hamburgers, and pancakes all made up and in the freezer. (I was sick all day yesterday and so my dear, sweet, hubby-kins cooked up a triple batch of pancakes to put in the freezer! Love him!) With all that being said, I'm trying to keep the evening meals simple. Usually by 4 in the afternoon I'm about done for the day. I tell you what, being 8 months pregnant and taking care of 3 kids sure can wear a lady out! Here's my menu for the week:
- banana bread
- breakfast cookies
- baked oatmeal w/ peaches
- Mac. and Cheese/ broccoli (Lilly's request)
- Calzones/ fruit
- Grilled cheese/ tomato soup ( I never got around to making it last week)
- Veggie quesedillas/ banana "milkshakes"
- spaghetti squash with sauce/bread/ salad
- Tortellini soup/ breadsticks
I realized after I had finished my list that I had no meat dishes planned. Oops. Luckily, I have a husband who probably won't even notice. I'm making some homemade chicken broth this week so I figure if I want to I can throw some chicken in those veggie quesedillas. (quesadillas? quesodillas? eh...whatever!)
For those of you mom's out there who have a hard time coming up with healthy, cheap snacks for your kiddo's, I'm coming up with a list. This is something I have struggled with for a long time. My children get bored with the same old things and I thought it might be helpful to share some things that I have come up with. Maybe ya'll could share your ideas too! Have a blessed day!
Running the race,
