This Week In Our Kitchen: Week of April 15th

Happy Tax Day! Happy 3rd Birthday to my sweet Little Miss! Happy 6 weeks to my Little Man!

It has been way too long since I posted last, approximately two months. I will be honest and say that since the new year I haven’t cooked often, much less planned my menu. However, I finally feel like life is back to normal, or as normal as it can be with an additional family member. It is an adjustment from being a mother of two to a mother of three but it is so worth it, and so rewarding.

This last week was the first time since I had my son that I took the time to create a wonderful dinner. Since his birth some wonderful friends have brought over some meals and my fabulous husband has been instrumental in feeding us. I am very grateful for him or we might have starved. The favored dinner this last week was a new recipe and one that I will blog about the next time I make it. I made a totally divine Chicken Piccata with a tangy sauce flavored nicely with white wine and lemon, served over a very simple side dish of angel hair pasta with a garlic butter sauce, accompanied by a Ceaser salad and some garlic bread.

Here is what we will be eating at our house this week.

Sunday: Chicken Salad (from Costco)

Monday: Pizza for Little Miss’ 3rd Birthday with and antipasto salad (However all she cares about is cake. She said she didn’t want pizza for her birthday, just cake.)

Tuesday: Grilled Italian Chicken with Parma Rosa Sauce, ravioli, Ceaser salad and garlic bread

Wednesday: Fish and Chips (This was requested for my husband for his birthday dinner. Happy Birthday, Dear.)

Thursday: Dinner out with my in-laws for my husband and his brother’s birthdays. They are not twins, but close enough.

Friday: Pioneer Woman’s Sour Cream Noodle Bake (with modification)

Saturday: Creamy Chipotle Chicken and Black Bean Burritos

As recipes are posted on Kitchen and Kids, I will link them up to my menu plans, so if something interests you check back and see if I’ve posted a recipe.

    my little miss will be 6 weeks on friday and last night i finally ventured into the to try and create a meal… i guess i must be right on schedule with you. thank the lord for prepared frozen meals and friends bringing over meals!!! we would’ve starved for sure… and then after last night’s attempt… i’m NOT EXCITED to do it again. but i must. so i will.
    i’m glad you’re back to the blog world!

    • Thank you so much. It wasn’t until the week my sweet one turned 6 weeks that cooking crossed my mind and it was only one meal. The next week it was 2 or 3 meals. Don’t worry it will come back, it just takes some finagling.

I'm excited you stopped by and I really want your thoughts.
