Turkey Burritos, Black Beans - My little boy ate three gigantic plates full of this. He just kept asking for more. It's a very easy recipe - just need some ground turkey and cheese, which I often have in my freezer, and the rest of the ingredients are pantry staples. Great for a Friday night.
Creamy Squash and Apple Soup, Whole Wheat Baguette - The boys did okay with this, but they didn't gobble it up like I had hoped. Personal preference - since the apple and onion are left whole, I'd prefer dicing them, or even mashing or pureeing them instead of slicing. It's a good recipe, but I've had better butternut squash soups/chowders.
Roast Chicken, Mashed Red Potatoes, Green Beans, Salad - I'd be okay being a vegetarian, and I could do better at it than I did when I was younger. I love all kinds of vegetables, and I already try to incorporate some meatless days into our family meal plans. That said, if I ever did go back to being a vegetarian, I would miss the smell of roast chicken.
Baked Haddock, Corn on the Cob - Enjoying the last of the season's corn while we can, and taking advantage of being able to buy fish straight from the harbor. I made the fish and corn and utilized leftovers. I had fish, corn, mashed potatoes, and green beans. The big boy had fish, corn, and a burrito (strange combo but whatever - he ate it all!). The little boy had a burrito and corn. They both stole green beans off my plate, which is just fine by me.
Chicken and Strawberry Salad - Inspired by this recipe, I used some of the leftover chicken to make a dinner salad. I loosely followed this recipe, except I used feta and walnuts instead of blue cheese and cashews. The boys ate it without the lettuce and did really well with it.
