my week in food

here's a summary of everything i made & we ate over the last week. enjoy!

Dr Pepper Chili, perfectly sweet and spicy!Tilapia with Lemon-Garlic Sauce Recipe

i do all of my meal planning wednesday night/thursday morning for the following week and then shop with the boys thursday morning. lately, i've been assuming we have ingredients, never bothering to check when i'm making my grocery list, only to learn halfway through cooking something, that i'm missing a key ingredient or two. so was the case on monday when i made this tex-mex skillet pasta. this time, we were out of corn and cilantro. it was still delicious, and will be made again with corn, cilantro, and black beans. tuesday we had the leftovers.

sometimes, a basic sauteed chicken breast is perfect for dinner. wednesday we had ours with peas and garlic butter orzo.

thursday was rainy and cool, a great day for one of jason's favorites: dr pepper chili. over the winter, we had this chili at least twice a month. it's that good. 

i spent the majority of friday afternoon getting ready for roo's birthday part on saturday. since neither of the boys wanted to take a nap, i was anxious about getting everything done and did not want to add making dinner to the list. jason and winn headed off to dibella's for subs. i forgot how good they are!

saturday we celebrated roo's first birthday with brunch and even more cake! (more on that later.) my parents stayed for dinner, so we broke out the grill for the first time this year & had cheeseburgers to go along with what little brunch leftovers remained.

my kids love fish, but i was getting bored with basic baked tilapia, so this sunday we had tilapia with lemon garlic sauce and brown rice. it was a hit!
