This week we are increasing the amount of meals with meat. At my toddler's 18 month check up last week we found out he was a little anemic. He officially loves his flintstone vitamins, but I'm hoping he'll develop a taste for meat. He's just so finicky about eating meat. So that's why you'll find more animal based protein on our menu this week, and I'm planning on sneaking some spinach in our baked spaghetti. I'm definitely going to keep my eye out for some good manager specials on meat. Thankfully we were able to switch to cow's milk so that will give me a bit more money in our budget for meat. Adios soy milk!
I'm planning on making a triple batch of Lemon Yogurt Muffins
We'll enjoy some Homemade Yogurt this week.
My toddler will love it when we have Breakfast Cookies!
And I need to make up some more waffles for the freezer.
I'll probably have a couple toast days in the mix too.
Monday- Curried Chicken with Cashews, Naan & Steamed Veggies

Saturday-I'm Hosting an Uppercase Living Party and we'll be enjoying a nice brunch complete with mini croissants w/nutella, Apple Sauce Oatmeal Cake, Lemon Yogurt Muffins, Fruit Salad, and mini breakfast casserole cups. I'm planning on serving this with some orange Julius, coffee and tea. Most of this I can prepare the during the week, which will make for easy prep Saturday morning. For dinner we will enjoy some leftovers from the week.
