Menu of the Week

Here's a little peek at what we've been eating lately:

Herb-Crusted Salmon with Roasted Lemons, Brown Rice, Sautéed Zucchini - Thankfully, Aaron is a big fan of seafood.  Nathan, not so much, but since he ate a huge plate full of rice and zucchini, I am okay with this.  This was a slight departure from our usual salmon recipe, and although Aaron first asked why it was "covered with stuff", he ate it all and I enjoyed it very much.

Chicken Parmesan, Garden Salad - This is an old standby recipe.  It's a very simple meal to pull together, and leftovers are versatile as well.  Kevin enjoyed a chicken parm sandwich for lunch over the weekend.

Tex-Mex Pasta Salad, Tortilla Chips, Fresh Guacamole - We all love this one.  It's easy, it makes a ton, it's flexible (use up whatever you have).  On-sale avocados to make guac was a bonus. 

Sausage, White Bean, and Kale Soup - I love finding recipes via blogs and pinterest.  It seems easier now than ever before to add variety to the weekly menus.  This one was easy, and Kevin and I enjoyed it.  The boys actually did shockingly well with it, kale and all.  (Note:  I used turkey sausage and veggie broth instead of the water/bouillon cubes.)

The other nights I made meals mentioned here.  Pierogies, apples, salad, and corn.  Margherita pizza from Costco.
