Dinners this week

Erin has been here for the past few weeks so I have slacked off a bit in the dinner menus. That being said, here is this week's dinner menus:

Sunday - Loic and I had dinner with Jody, and we had pasta, salmon in dill sauce and steamed broccoli

Monday - homemade veggie soup (I used some frozen chicken stock that I made a while back so I guess it is veggie chicken soup) served with small noodles or rice, haven't decided yet

Tuesday - Beef stroganoff and steamed veggies

Wednesday - wraps with turkey, cheese and a lot of veggies, served with fries (homemade if time permits)

Thursday - at agility, so quick dinner of frozen chicken, rice and a veggie of some sort (usually peas because lolo likes them a lot)

Friday - end of the week, frozen pizza!

This week's dinners

I will be honest, Friday nights we usually have something ready to go from the freezer (like pot pies, M&M meat stuff etc.). I am done by Friday nights and if I don't plan for at least that, we will order in - which is not good for our waist lines or wallets!!
Here is this weeks menu:

Sunday - homemade beef and tomato pasta sauce with noodles
Monday - thai chicken salad with lots of veggies, chicken breast and vermicelli
Tuesday - layered casserole, my mom's recipe (very tasty, will use left over homemade pasta sauce)
Wednesday - baked pork chops with apple (found a nice recipe for this, haven't cooked pork in ages but looks good) with brown rice and steamed broccoli
Thursday - frittata with eggs, potatoes, veggies and a salad
Friday - frozen meat pies!

If you want recipes, let me know, I make a lot of it up as I go.

Long time no post

I have had a request to put more photos and recipes on the blog. Here is a thought for all 3 of my readers, if I post my weekly dinner menu (yes, I make a list of meals we will have for a week and grocery shop accordingly) maybe you could pick out meals you might like and I will then post the recipes? Just a thought.
We are all doing well, Loic is 18 months old now and is a riot. The dogs are all doing well too, Jess and Jody have taken Tyler snowshoeing, which loves. Toby and Arthur would decidedly not like snowshoeing and are happy to stay home.
Now for the good stuff - Loic videos!!

Yes, I taught my baby how to do a tunnel. And penguins say "Mimi!" and are also called "Mimis!" That boy loves his penguins. And he does really know a lot of animal sounds (I left out Goat and another one but can't remember when I am listing them off for him!) Smart smart baby.
