Little Clementine Peeler and Weekly Meals

The toddler has been obsessed with clementines for the past few weeks. At first, he was only obsessed with eating them, but lately he is also obsessed with peeling them. He can sit there forever and peel clementines. It’s one of the few times when he actually sits down…










I didn’t do a good job of taking pictures of our dinners last week, but they were all delicious. We all love wrapping things in lettuce leaves, and I think the possibilities are really endless. So I think we’ll start having “Wrapped Up Wednesdays.” We’ll just wrap things into lettuce leaves until we run out of ideas…

Tuesday: Marisa’s Taco Bean and Cheese Burgers

Wrapped Up Wednesday: Chicken in lemongrass ginger sauce with cucumbers & carrots wrapped in lettuce leaves.

Thursday: Vegetable fried rice.

Friday: Remember Salad Fridays? We’ll have some sort of a “big, interesting salad.”

Question: Do you like clementines? I like them, but I’m not that crazy about them… From reading your blogs, I know many of you love them (almost as much as the toddler)…

Be well,
Andrea

  2. My son has always enjoyed peeling oranges of any sort. It's also one of his favourite fruits. I'm definitely in a Clemetine craze the past few weeks!

  3. Loved your post! I now have that book on my list of books to read. I agree.. I see people at work that complain about now having money to take their kid to the dr or eat healtheir than they do but get their nails done regularly and carry a coach purse... Come on now.. really!

  4. I love the look of determination on his face in that second picture. So cute.

    I like little oranges but the seeds drive me a bit crazy so I only eat them if they are seedless.

  5. my toddler did the same thing the other day! He only gets 1 a day though bc it gives him a rash! haha

    tmi but those lil buggers are good (if they are sweet) I typically don't eat tons of them but the last few batches have me putting a couple in my lunch bag. (perhaps my eating less sweets has changed my tastes too)

    either way...lil guy is darling trying to open that orange!

  6. I LOVE clementines!! I just bought a whole bag of them at Trader Joe's. They are so easy to peel (as shown by your son!) and they are usually seedless and sweet, which I love :)

  8. I do love clementines. I can eat 2 or 3 of them at a time no problem. I think they're such a great, light, winter snack.

  11. I am curious about your lemongrass ginger sauce? I love eating light in the evening. Love clementines. Not sure if you have a Kroger in your area but they have some of the best navel oranges this season.

    I love clementines. So sweet, juicy, and refreshing!

  14. Oooo! Your menu looks fabulous, as always : )

    I LOVE clementines! I buy a crate a week and I'm the only one who eats them! No wonder I never get colds...pumped up on Vitamin C!

  15. Like your son, I do enjoy peeling them. Oranges are just so frustrating to peel! The smaller citrus fruits are much easier. =)

    I do like them, but I need to remember to eat them more often!

    Have a great week, Andrea!

  18. i think clementines are just all right. i like navel oranges better (i'm more of a volume eater and clementines are too tiny!)

  19. I have fond memories of skylar when she was about 12-18 mos hanging out at homeschooler park days with her chubbing fingers, mowing down fresh local clementines from anyone who'd give her one :)
