Sunday: We took dinner to a friend and then went and ate barbecue.
Monday: We took dinner to another friend and went and ate at Black Eyed Pea, and I just have to tell you that I got some good ol' Country fried chicken tenders with mashed potatoes and broccoli (you know, to balance everything out) and it was just what I was in the mood for!!! Of course, it gave me indigestion all that night, but so worth it!!!
Tuesday: Spaghetti with meat sauce- and I did the pureed butternut squash again in the sauce - can't even taste it! I didn't even tell Matt and he never knew! I roasted 1 butternut squash about a month or longer ago and froze about 4 baggies of 1/4 cup puree mixture that I'll pull out and use as needed. Very easy to thaw - only takes a few minutes - I use the same technique that I did to thaw breastmilk. Click here to see how to roast one of these bad boys. Also, I had found some Earth's Best ABC pasta for Reid and he LOVED it!!! I had to take some pictures. :)
After Reid ate his dinner, I let him eat some more pasta directly out of the pot - I mean, who doesn't love a little "after dinner" taste of just the pasta from the cooking pot??
This is the pasta - Reid called it his "ABC 'pasgetti'" - and I think he totally ate better because he loved this! [Plus, a good way to work in a little "lesson" :)]
See - can't even tell there's some butternut squash hidden!!!
Wednesday: Crock Pot Chicken - I might have shared this recipe before but I don't want to go searching for it, so here it is again.
boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 can cream of mushroom soup (I use fat free)
block of cream cheese, cubed (I use 1/3 less fat)
1 packet dry Italian seasoning
4.5 oz. can chopped green chiles
1 cup milk (I use 2%)
Put in crock pot (I put the chicken first, sprinkle half of the seasoning, put cream cheese, soup, green chiles, milk, and then rest of seasoning and stir the mixture a little). Cook for about 6 hours (I'll check the chicken after about 5). I serve this with brown rice for me and white rice for Matt, and broccoli (I'm SUCH A FAN of the Steam Select veggies). This meal would also be good with noodles because the sauce is so yummy it's good to serve over rice or noodles!
Thursday: Old El Paso hard/soft taco dinner kit
Friday: Have no idea - usually pizza.
Also, since we don't have a scanner, I just took a picture of a couple of the sonogram pictures. The first is the "money" shot - um, hello!, am I already embarrassing the little guy?
Do you see the 2 legs with the thing in the middle?? ;)
