Menu Plan Monday: July 19th

While this week's menu is striving to be ultra child-friendly, I am trying a new thing or two. Just so I'm not too bored in the kitchen {grin}. Vince is going to be out of town so I am cooking to please the kiddos, although I must say The Princess and even Mr. B have greatly expanded on their food likes~thank goodness! For some funny reason Mr. B is much more willing to try new things since he turned 5 last month.

Last week's dinners were somewhat haphazard and off-schedule, what with the kiddos going to VBS each night and having a couple of meals there thrown in. I guess all-in-all it was actually easier on me.

Then this weekend Vince and I hit the Farmers Market, the local cattle ranch for grass-fed beef and the organic market for organic chicken. I am very happy! I don't mind eating a little less meat and pay a little more if we can eat the good stuff. I feel so much better about feeding my children meat without hormones and antibiotics.

Plus Vince made more pickles! Can you believe it? I am not complaining at all~the last batch was amazing and this time he has tried a couple more varieties. Can't wait to try them in a day or so. Aren't they pretty?!

What's cooking this week:

Monday: Olive Garden's Pasta e Fagioli with bruschetta
Tuesday: Baked Macaroni and Cheese with Peas and Carrots
Wednesday: Tostadas
Thursday: Eggs, Bacon, Biscuits with Chocolate Gravy
Friday: Homemade Pizza
Saturday: {leftovers}
