Food. Life. Laughs. Ideas. From A Newly Liberated Mom
What we’re eating this week
March 14, 2013
… as if anyone wants to know, right?
Well, we don’t typically eat out on school days. Instead I will throw together something that the girls love and look forward to eating when they get home from a long day at school. I mean, that’s what moms do, right? 😀 And I love cooking for my babies.
But this is a more exciting week for us than most, as far as meals go, and all because I bought 5 plump Portobellos last weekend. They were fresh from the farm and I couldn’t resist. I used one for the grilled salmon, and the others, I added to my chicken pie and beef marinara fillings for later use.
Monday, we had grilled salmon with Portobello mushrooms with spaghetti olio.
Tuesday was vegetarian day for us. Raine, my budding chef, cooked scalloped potatoes for us.
Wednesday, Raine made us this chicken pot pie with the frozen filling I made the day before. Scrumptious because of the Portabellos.
Today, we’re having fish from a box with homemade fries and salad.
Friday, we’re making my version of cannelloni with that awesome beef-Portobello marinara sauce that’s calling out to me from the freezer. Can’t wait!
Good food doesn’t have to burn a hole in your wallet if you cook it yourself. All it takes is a little time and effort and I can whip up some of our favorite restaurant food. What I really love about cooking at home is that I get to play with flavors, experiment with different ingredients, and personalize it to the way my kids like it aka creating my own version of our favorites.
What kind of food week are you having? I’m looking for new meal ideas and would love to hear what your family favorites are.
