Hi, Friends! It is a beautiful week! The week of spring break and Easter! The best part of Easter, time with my boys. I say that with a joy in my heart because this week my youngest will be actively cooking several meals. We will have time for teaching each other our likes and dislikes in the Foodie world and hopefully, come up with dishes that the whole family will enjoy for years to come.
Letting my young teen son make choices in the grocery for meals this week is going to be awesome. This is a valuable skill he will use his whole life. This skill could make or break his health in his old age as well as what he teaches his children in years to come. Food is so important and food knowledge is incredibly important.
This week and for many weeks you will start seeing Kid Made. The recipe links will be awesome because these meals will have few ingredients and simple techniques for beginning cooks. And don’t we all need simple????
Here is our Simple Menu Plan for The Week
Monday – Turkey Burgers and Baked Potato Rounds seasoned with Cajun Spices
Tuesday – My yummy Potato Soup recipe with Garlic Bread (Kid Made from a store-bought roll) and a big green salad.
Wednesday – Roast Chicken Breast (Kid Made in the Microwave with Pampered Chef Roaster), Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Green beans.
Thursday – BYOS ( Build Your Own Sandwich) for the boys and BYOPP ( Build Your Own Power Plate)for me
Friday – Rice, and Beans with stewed collard greens
Saturday – Leftover Rice and Beans, with vegetable crudites and hummus. ( Made by Kid Chef)
Sunday- Easter Brunch and Pizza and Movie Night. We use Against The Grain and because it is a holiday I will have pizza bar set up so everyone can create their pizza and a salad.
Have a great week!
