I’m SO excited because my super awesome hubby bought and installed a new dishwasher for me this weekend!
BTW– After my dad retired this past year he started doing remodeling jobs and the first job he did was my kitchen – he did so great and it’s exactly what I wanted! Sometime soon I will give you a full kitchen tour and post before and after photos 🙂
I would like to think that he loves me so much he didn’t want me to go without a dishwasher any longer since I cook so much, but really I think it might be that I’m a terrible dishwasher and all our dishes still seemed dirty and greasy even after I washed them. I could live with it because I knew they were clean but those kinds of things really bother my hubby. But for whatever the reason, I now have a shiny new dishwasher, I’m super happy, and my dishes have never been more sparkly 🙂
Last weeks meal plan seemed to be more work than I intended so this week I’m going to really try and keep it simple and make lots of healing, nourishing foods since I was sick last week, Lance is sick now, and I have a feeling the others will get it soon.
Also, this week I’m implementing a new section called school lunches! While I always have dinners planned, I really struggle with school lunches – especially since we are trying to eat only real, nourishing foods and eliminate eggs, it really limits what I can send! I figure if I have a plan it will make it easier 🙂 So here it is:*I have made and love this recipe **This is a new recipe
Thursday**– Tortilla-less soup
Saturday**– General Tso’s Chicken – this is from last week, I never got around to making it.
Tuesday**– Thai Beef Lettuce Wraps
SCHOOL LUNCHES (main dish only):
Thursday– Salad with leftover wings and ranch dressing from the night before
Friday- Almond flour crackers with nitrate free turkey and pepperonis
Monday- Burgers from the night before
Tuesday- Salad with balsamic vinaigrette dressing and cooked chicken (from the EXTRAS section below)
Wednesday- Leftover Thai Lettuce Wraps
*Shredded Chicken and Bone Broth I’m going to make bone broth for the soup on Thursday and use the chicken for salads throughout the week.
*Ranger Breakfast Cookies (going to try using a “flax egg”)
