Last week, we had one big hit in this house, and it was the chicken strips (and the chicken strips used in wraps with lettuce, tomato and yogurt dip, even my picky 11 year old who prefers to only eat broccoli, cucumber and carrots in the vegetable department). The loser in our house was the pizza muffins, even my daycare sweeties didn’t really care for them. So if anyone out there has a great recipe for pizza muffins, please share! I would love to try again.
Here is the lunch menu for week #2 of 2013: Check back this week for recipes for Black Bean and Chicken tortilla soup, and whole wheat macaroni and cheese with peas and roast chicken. There will also be a great Rice bowl recipe (with origins in the White Water Cooks, for anyone familiar with the Ski Hill or the cookbooks) for supper that you prepare in the morning and then at supper time, your family builds their own bowl.
Monday: Chicken and Brown Rice soup with whole wheat naan and hummus, raw veggies, banana cinnamon muffins, apple and pear
Tuesday: Turkey and Cream Cheese and Veggie pinwheels, chocolate chunk banana bread, applesauce and orange slices
Wednesday: Black Bean and Chicken tortilla soup with some Que Pasa Blue Corn chips on the side and salsa for dipping, vanilla yogurt with frozen berries, and a pear.
Thursday: Whole Wheat Macaroni and Cheese with peas and Roast chicken; ginger cookies, raw veggies and orange slices
Friday: (at my daughter’s request): Homemade Tuna snackables: Small tupperware container of canned tuna seasoned with honey mustard, raw veggies, and two wasa bread crackers (or other whole grain crackers). Banana Cinnamon muffins, fruit salad.
Mostly the same as the big kids, except for Wednesday and Friday
Monday: Chicken and Rice soup with Naan
Tuesday: Turkey and Cream Cheese pinwheels with raw veggies
Wednesday: Homemade Chicken Strips with brown rice and broccoli
Thursday: Whole Wheat Macaroni and Cheese with peas and Roast chicken
Friday: Homemade Tuna Snackables
Homemade Tuna snackables came about because my 9 year old was asking me to buy the Tuna snacks she spied at Costco. I said no, but that we could instead make our own (with the 6 cans of tuna we had just put into our basket). She agreed with me that she might not like the dressing that came with the pre-made Tuna Snacks.
See you soon!
