I hope you all are well. Sorry I missed posting my last meal rotation. I don’t know about you but here in San Diego it’s become warm (although not today) and summer buzz is in the air. So Thursdays will be grill nights as we gear up for summer grilling.
Since my husband is in charge of grilling, he has some say in the matter. We both agree we need more grilled fish recipes. We also have been using a basket to grill veggies. Last time I cut the pieces too small so some fell through into the grill …oops. But the veggies are still delish. So looking for more ways to make fish and grill veggies on the horizon.
I’ve also been working on developing soups for lunches. I realize soup for dinner doesn’t really work for us unless it’s more of a meal-type of soup. Also, I really like to have either soup or salad with my own lunches because it helps fill me up. Nothings worse than feeling hungry an hour or two after lunch.
This contest-winning minestrone is excellent and will be going into the lunch rotation. I like to plan on it the week we have fish tacos because I always have leftover cabbage (in the picture I used zucchini instead of cabbage). (more…)
Thank you so much for posting your menus – I read through your meal planning book back in January, but am only starting to put things into practice now … I was wondering what sorts of things you end up making/eating on Kids Choice nights?

This is a night my husband isn’t home so it’s easy. And now I have the kids make it. Lately it’s been toaster flat bread pizza or grilled cheese and avocado sandwiches. I usually check in with them the day before so if they want chicken or something else, I will have to be sure it’s defrosted. I often serve with something else I have like leftover soup, fruit or salad.
