Sunday night is special – hello, Homeland is back! We can’t wait for the premiere. We’ll be dining on parmesan chicken meatballs. Total comfort food, but healthy. Promise! M’s green beans on the side. Gosh I need to update that picture.
Going along with the whole comfort food/healthy theme I’ll be trying out this version of fettucini alfredo but will add fresh peas and grilled chicken to make it a full meal. Whole wheat pasta helps the health factor as well.
White chili is on the agenda for tuesday night. It’s so incredibly flavorful for being so healthy and it can stretch for two meals, woohoo!
That leads us to Wednesday night and to another night of the chili. When I do this – I try and change it up a bit. Homemade corn muffins will do just the trick.
Thursday night and it’s L’s birthday….! I can’t believe he is 7. His favorite meal will be served. Grilled Italian sausage with green spaghetti on the side.
Friday will be all about prepping for a rather large gathering that is coming by Saturday night. We share a fence with L’s best bud and teammate, Ryder, so between both homes the whole football team and their families will head on over after their Saturday play off game. I’m a bit nervous about (properly) feeding this many people – but, I think we can pull it off!
A lot of cooking this week – can’t wait!
P.S. That’s Logan on his first birthday….!
