Our apartment smells amazing this evening. This morning, Monkey Boy decided we should make raspberry/blueberry pancakes. This afternoon, I realized the two bananas on my counter were pretty much do or die today, so a batch of banana oatmeal muffins were in order (aaaand I'm set for breakfasts this morning, woo hoo!). This evening, my husband got a hankering for his mother's amazing gumbo, minus the seafood so I can eat it, as well. Food allergies can be a drag, but no more so than when your in-laws are consummate creators of food and also happen to be from Louisiana, home of some of the most amazing American cuisine to date. In my humble opinion, of course ;-)
Our menu plan is a little bit shorter than usual this week, as we will be taking off right after school on Friday to drive South for the Salado Highland Games in Salado, Texas. It's kind of amazing that I've been writing this blog for the better part of a year and have yet to go off on a tangent about Scottish Highland Dancing, actually, but let's save that for another day. On to the food!
Monday - PB&J on wheat bread, orange slices, baby carrots
Tuesday - Leftover gumbo (mommy & daddy)/Lunchable (Monkey), applesauce, yogurt
Wednesday - Turkey sandwich, apple slices, broccoli
Thursday - Leftover spaghetti (mommy & daddy)/Lunchable (Monkey), orange slices, baby carrots
Friday - Hot lunch in cafeteria (making it easier to head out of town right after school)
Monday - Homemade gumbo
Tuesday - Cheeseburger soup, salad (made ahead & frozen)
Wednesday - Spaghetti with meat sauce & Alfredo sauce (meat sauce made ahead & frozen, Alfredo sauce crafted by my husband)
Thursday - n/a (Bowling league night)
Friday - n/a (Road trip!!!)
