Did you all have a great St. Patrick's Day? I have to admit that there are some really cute ways to celebrate St. Patrick's day, but I've never done any of them. I don't color our food green or even serve hardly any green food. The most green we ate yesterday was the green peppers inside our meatball sandwiches.
Speaking of meatball sandwiches, have I told you lately how much I love them? My sister-in-law, Melinda, gave me the recipe for the best turkey meatballs ever a long time ago. They are one of my favorite recipes ever. And they're pretty healthy too, full of veggies and lean ground turkey. My baby gobbled them up plain yesterday. I bought some ciabatta rolls from Sam's Club yesterday and our sandwiches were taken to another level of deliciousness. Usually I just buy rolls at my local Smith's, since Sam's is an hour away.
Yesterday on my shopping trip I went to Sprout's and stocked up on green and red peppers. I cut them up and freeze them. I also bought some butternut squash to roast and then puree. I freeze the puree in ice cubes and then drop a few cubes into ramen noodles, soup and sauces.
I also bought some ground turkey and boneless skinless chicken breasts to make fancy up (form into meatballs or bag with some marinade) to stick in my freezer. Pretty much like I talked about in my freezer meal post a while ago.
Anyway...soccer season started yesterday, so we're back at it with only a two week break since basketball season ended. That means that I have to have dinner ready before the kids come home from school otherwise we're eating cereal every night.
And, my camera card is missing. I'm thinking a sweet little 15 month old took it out of the card reader that was in the computer and dropped it somewhere sneaky, because I can't find it anywhere. I keep thinking of things (mostly food) to take pictures with, but I can't until I get another card.
Anyway...time to get busy. My to do list is waiting for me. Menu planning time...
Monday: we had my favorite meatball sandwiches and fresh pineapple
Tuesday: chicken tetrazinni
Thursday: porcupine meatballs
Friday: tinfoil dinners
Saturday: to be determined
Sunday: crockpot chicken tacos
That was easy. What about you? What are you making this week?
