Mama's Making Some Meals 1/9-1/13

Last week's meal-planning went awesome with my new cookbook, Peas and Thank You. The recipes were terrific and the older Pickies actually ate with minimal complaining (littlest Picky didn't complain; he would just walk away). All of the recipes were a hit and I even went on the blog and found more recipes.  I'm also repeating a few from last week. Good stuff. 

This week I gave Picky #1 and #2 each a turn with the cookbook and three sticky notes. They each picked out a breakfast, dinner and dessert. They were really enthusiastic and you could tell that they felt empowered with their menu choices. :) 

Blackberry smoothies and blueberry streusel muffins
Quesadillas, tortilla chips and salsa
Black bean soup, taco salad

Smoothies and cereal
Mac and cheese, apple slices
Black bean burgers, sweet potato fries, steamed broccoli

Smoothies and bagels
Hummus, fruit and veggie sticks
Teriyaki tofu, quinoa, pineapple chunks and salad

Smoothies and chewy energy bars
Grilled cheese, veggie sticks and hummus
Chipotle lime burritos, spanish rice, green beans

Shakes and cereal
Bean burritos, applesauce, cheddar bunnies
Homemade pizza, green beans

Banana chocolate muffins
Sugar cookies (sigh.  I am the WORST sugar cookie maker--EVER).

What are you making this week?  Trying any new recipes?
