Good Monday morning to ya! We have had some interesting developments with my daughter’s stomach issues, and she is back on gluten and dairy and doing fine. We still aren’t sure what is causing the tummy troubles, but after talking with her teacher and tracking the timing of her stomach aches for the past few weeks, we have a sneaking suspicion it could be due to anxiety or stress over her performance at school. Somehow our third child is turning out to be an over-achiever, which is really quite comical if you knew just how pitifully average the rest of us are! We are not putting any pressure on her to perform, but she seems to be doing that to herself.
At any rate, my meal plans will once again be dairylicious!!! I am still trying to eat somewhat Paleo-ish for my own needs, so I will still be incorporating some grain-free/dairy-free dinners into my meal planning. In other words, I’m hoping to strike more of a healthy balance. And hopefully this will make my meal plans a better resource for those of you looking for more wholesome, real food ideas for dinner!
Here’s what I’ve got on the docket for this week:
Weekly Menu 04.08.13
MONDAY: It’s just the girls and me tonight (Paul and D are headed to a Phillies game) so I think I’m going to make these Italian Hotdogs with Rose Romano’s Peppers via my friend Cindy at Whatever Works. It seems appropriate for a game day when we’re not at the game. And the weather is finally conducive to grilling. Whoopie!
TUESDAY: I’ll be in NYC for a red carpet event with Target (wheee!!!) so the family will get spaghetti.
WEDNESDAY: Slow Cooked Bacon Wrapped Chicken (I’ll be tired from a late night so I’m hoping to have this ready to throw in the crockpot on Wed morning) with a side salad
THURSDAY: Skirt Steak and Sweet Potatoes with Herb Sauce via Freshly Completed
FRIDAY: Salmon Cakes with Simple Sautéed Spinach
