Tuesday was Jeremy's birthday, but we had a busy evening, so I needed a quick recipe. I had some already browned deer meat with onions and garlic in the freezer leftover from a meal last week, so I threw that in a pan with kidney beans, tomatoes, and seasoning. We topped it with pepper jack cheese and sour cream. Jeremy has his own dairy free version of cheese and sour cream. It hit the spot.
Kid Rating: The boys ate it all up!
Wednesday: Jeremy cooked baked chicken and mixed veggies.
Thursday: Homemade tomato soup and grilled cheese and turkey bacon sandwiches
I roasted the spaghetti squash, then used a fork to get the squash out. I just tossed it without about 3 tablespoons of store bought pesto. It was so good. With the brussel sprouts, I cut them in halves, drizzled with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper, and roasted them. The pork chops are just seasoned with salt and pepper. We drove 45 minutes to get them at the most popular meat market around here, and they were well worth it.
Kid rating: Both of them devoured their pork chops and tried the squash and brussel sprouts. Lex ate more of the squash, and Eli ate more of the sprouts (maybe because we gave him ranch as dipping sauce?)
