Our week of meals started out ambitious, but quickly went downhill as Vacation Bible School continued. I always feel better if I start out ambitious because then if I fall behind at the end of the week I don’t feel as bad, HA!
Salmon Burgers. The recipe is from Better Homes and Gardens. For this I cut out the Dijon (my husband doesn’t like mustard) and made my own dressing. For the dressing I mixed about 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise (I use the light, real stuff), with about 2 teaspoons of grated lemon, and 2-3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, and then I threw in about 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley. It was so yummy!
Our side: salad..with fresh lettuce from our garden! Yum!
Chicken pita with tzatziki. This recipe is from Real Simple. It was really good! Our mint is quite potent, so I may reduce that in the future.
Side: grapes. tomatoes
A common thing I do for meals is make a kid version for Super A, as I did here.
Wednesday (This is when things start going downhill as far as cooking…be prepared HA!)
Chick-Fil-A courtesy of my sister. We had all three boys and no husbands for dinner that day, so we went for take-out. Our usual is the chicken nuggets, with french fries, and some sort of drink (lemonade/milk).
Steak-Out. My husband picked this up for us on the way home, and I was super glad because I did not feel like cooking! We usually get the steak tips, with baked potato, salad, and rolls. Super A had a cheese quesadilla with salsa (his request).
Scene Lounge. It’s kind of a tapas place. We were out running errands, while Super A was hanging out with his aunt and uncle that night. We tried the kobi beef burgers, the sweet potato fries, the california roll (sushi), and a calamari and shrimp plate.We liked the burgers and the fries the best! We sat in a half couch…we don’t get to be cool anymore that often. Hahaha.
Back to cooking! We made tacos.
Hamburgers to finish up the week. We had left-over buns from the salmon burgers and wanted to use them up before they went bad! We got the pre-patted 85/15 kind. My husband usually marinates them in some Worcestershire sauce and McCormick meat seasoning.
Side: chips and grapes
