Fun With the Trike and Weekly Meals

The toddler has been practicing riding his trike, and he finally “got it.” It was so much fun seeing him pedal away yesterday evening…

It’s been a while since I’ve posted our weekly meals on the blog (but I still planned them on my white board even when I didn’t post them). Here we go with this week’s meals:

Tuesday: Salmon with dill, lemon, and a bit of butter. Brown rice and a salad. Similar to a recent meal… But instead of sautéing the cabbage, I’ll make a spicy Asian slaw with cabbage, cucumbers, and carrots. The dressing will have have a little peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and spicy red pepper paste. I’ll top the slaw with cilantro and peanuts.

Wednesday: It’s Wrapped Up Wednesday: Spring rolls with tofu and shrimp.

Thursday: Quesadillas on sprouted grain tortillas. We’ll have fresh salsa and a bit of fresh guacamole on the side. I have found that when I have plenty of salsa and a little guacamole, I am happy with very little cheese on my quesadilla… :-)

Friday: It’s Salad Friday. One of our salads will be a Caprese Salad; I have missed delicious mozzarella, flavorful tomatoes, and fresh basil…
