Valentine’s Day Prep and Weekly Meals

The toddler and I spent some time over the weekend putting his Valentine gifts together. We kept it rather simple and taped one heart-shaped lollipop to each Valentine card.

The toddler was very excited to exchange Valentines today! Smile

I also spent some time planning our meals for the week:
  • Baked sweet potatoes with lentils, Greek yogurt, salsa, and guacamole
  • Grilled salmon on a bed of arugula
  • Chicken Quesadillas with salsa and Greek yogurt and a salad
  • Mixed grain salad with black beans, avocado, and tomatoes and vegetable soup with tofu
  • Grilled cheese sandwiches and a spinach salad with egg whites
And here are some of the items that will go in hubby’s and the toddler’s lunches:
  • Chicken salad wraps
  • Veggie sandwiches with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and cheese
  • Blueberries and strawberries
  • Bananas
  • Apples
  • Oranges
  • Apple Sauce
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Cucumber slices and carrots sticks with hummus
  • Tortilla chips and guacamole
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • and more…
Questions: What are you planning to eat this week? What are you most looking forward to? I’m going to be experimenting with the “mixed grain salad.” I picked up a package of mixed grains several weeks ago and have been waiting to use them. Hope the salad turns out the way I’m imagining it…

Be well,
