On Sunday, even though I was not feeling well, we had Ravioli, cannellini beans, and spinach. I love the taste of the sauteed beans and spinach…so yummy. It was even a BIG hit with Dino and Hubby On Monday we had the bean burritos and Hubby made cheeseburgers, with seasoned potatoes. Hubby does not like burritos…too bad…they were delicious.
On Tuesday we had Rigatoni with broccoli and cauliflower. I made a sauce using olive oil, water, Parmesan cheese, almond milk, and LOTS of Goya seasoning. I baked the broccoli in an iron cast skillet, threw the past and veggies in a large container, poured the sauce over the pasta, covered it up and shook it it all up. It was a HUGE hit with Dino.
I changed it up a bit for Wednesday. I baked smoked sausage, sweet chicken and apple sausage, chopped onions, and sliced peppers. I poured in some water and sprinkled Goya seasoning, ginger and bit of curry. After the sausage was cooked, I cut it into small pieces and mixed it with the Knorr Herb and Butter Rice.
I decided to make the Meatballs Thursday night. Instead of noodles, I used rice, peas, and carrots. I sauteed the meatballs and veggies in the cast iron skillet, I added water and seasoning. The meatballs soaked up the seasoned water…they were so tasty.
Friday night we had the leftovers…I just love putting everything out, letting Dino choose what he wants, and helping him to heat it up. He felt pretty powerful choosing what would be in his plate.
Saturday night we had chicken, mac and cheese, and carrots and zucchini. Dino ate all his carrots and actually had three bites of zucchini. As you have read before, Dino sure does love some veggies and will happily eat them. I am trying to make us an even healthier household, by increasing the veggies and fruits we eat and limiting the fats. Dino knows strong muscles and bones come with eating healthy foods, and while treats are fun, too much can cause bad things to happen to our body. I think having veggies and fruits around all the time and adding lots of spices to our meals has made the difference for Dino. I am also teaching him to really enjoy the taste of his food, eating slowly, and enjoy our conversations.
Okay, back to the meal. I marinated the chicken in olive oil, water, and lots of seasoning: Goya, caribbean lime mix, ginger, and curry. Then as it cooked in the cast iron skillet I sprinkled some flower over the chicken…it gave it a nice texture while still keeping the flavor. the carrots and zucchini were cooked in a bit of olive oil and lots of seasonings…had a great flavor. The pasta was Knorr’s cheesy macaroni. .
What meals did you plan? How did they work out? Did you change plans?
