First Looks

24 Mar

If you are a family member, you know that I love taking pictures of Katherine’s first tastes of food. I love watching her face as she processes what on earth I’m putting in her mouth. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do!

Menus for the week

9 Mar

This past week I was terrible about cooking (being tired and grossed out at food), but eating out has not made me feel the greatest. We’re trying to do a modified Paleo, so that I am getting enough calcium, so you won’t see things like pasta or bread in our menu, but you will see cheese, beans, and maybe a few potatoes.

 

Monday: Parmesan crusted talapia, asparagus, roasted squash

Tuesday: baseball, so dinner at Olsen.

Wednesday: Life Group night at the park, so grabbing something before/after

Thursday: black bean soup

Friday-Sunday: baseball

Breakfasts: ranch sausage stars, sausage balls (I have to be careful because most breakfast foods turn my stomach)

Snacks: pecans with Gorgonzola, apple Brie wraps, glitter grapes
