Monday menu

Well, last weeks menu plan went fairly well with one hitch.  The Beaner became very ill and on Tuesday, all I could do was hold her the whole day long.  When life throws you a bunch of curve balls, order pizza!  Nothing Paleo about it but life without pizza is just not fair so we had pizza.  We then continued with our meal plan through the week.  We skipped meatloaf on Friday though as the weather was calling me outside to grill. Grilled chicken took it's place.

This week, I'm lucky enough to have my mom here so that me and my hubby were able to grocery shop together. We decided to take Bear with us as that girl just soaks up the attention and we rarely get to give it.  She is so fun when given that one on one time.  Aren't they all?

On another note, I've received several comments about being a short order cook for my kids both here and on our playgroup message board. I've listened and as someone suggested, we are going to put out what we are having, along with bread and butter/or peanut butter and if they don't like what we have, that is what they get. Mom is getting tough here!  I'm so stressed trying to find something Rooster will eat only for him to refuse it half the time so why stress?  It is only one meal!

Here is the menu for the week:

Monday "Happy Birthday to me!" :  Mom's homemade cabbage rolls with mashed potates
*who wants to eat Paleo on their birthday?  yes, there will be a very small cake too

Tuesday:  Grilled salmon with cauliflower styled "rice" and asparagus spears

Wednesday: Meatloaf with salad and broccoli

Thursday:  Grilled burgers with paleo buns; sweet potato fries, grilled asparagus (it was on sale this week)

Friday: Grilled chicken, broccoli, Wild rice, and salad

Saturday:  Junk day = pizza!

So there it is!

I too stress about my almost 5 year old and the fact that he eats next to nothing that I cook for dinner. If I make something I know he really hates I will let him pick something else like peanut butter and jelly. It is frustrating and hair pulling some nights at dinner time. I do my best to be consistent but I am by no means perfect. If making different meals for your little ones reduces the stress in your life then I say go for it. Parenting is not easy. There is no owners manuel, just one day at a time. Eventually they will grow up and you will have lots of good stories to tell. You are doing a great job and don't let anyone tell you otherwise!
