We welcomed our sweet baby girl this week! Chloe was born on Wednesday, February 25th and we are all so in love with her! The big kids have done great with adjusting to having me out of the house for a few days and having a new little sibling at home. As you can imagine our meal plan was jumbled up this week. 🙂
Sunday: Mr. B’s gumbo ya-ya (chicken and Andouille gumbo). This was AMAZING! It is definitely a once-a-year kind of thing since it does have 16 tablespoons of butter in it, but OH MAN was it worth every fattening spoonful! Hubby bubby and I added hot sauce to our portion so it wasn’t too spicy for the kiddos. We all ate more than our share. Oops. 🙂
Monday: Either bayou chicken pasta or lemon-garlic shrimp and grits with salad. We didn’t feel like making much so I just boiled some pasta and pulled some meat sauce I had made a few weeks ago from the freezer. Hubby bubby ate more gumbo. All of our bellies were very happy.
Tuesday: Steamed kielbasa, sauerkraut and pierogies. Hubby bubby vetoed this one so we will have it in a few weeks when he has to work late. Luckily all of the ingredients are fridge/pantry/freezer staples so it is easy to move it around to different weeks. We ended up having tacos with sautéed peppers and onions. All of our Frontera sauces were expired, gasp! Luckily we had a packet of taco seasoning so that worked. Ryan ate a lot of the taco shells with sour cream, such a goof.
Wednesday: Happy birthday, baby Chloe! She was born at 6:08 pm…minutes after hubby bubby passed the kiddos off to the babysitter in the lobby of the hospital with some cash for them to get pizza. He ran back upstairs and we welcomed our sweet girl!
Thursday: Asian pork wraps in the slow cooker. Right after Chloe was born I started dreaming of all of the foods I can eat again…medium burgers, soft and blue-veined cheeses, lunch meat, oh my! I convinced hubby bubby to get Red Robin…the black and blue burger cooked medium with its bleu cheese sauce, bleu cheese crumbles and sautéed mushrooms was sheer perfection. And, if I’m being honest I ate half of the food that came for me on my hospital tray, too! 🙂 Gotta feed the baby, right?
Friday: Pecan coconut crusted fish with salad and rice. More of my cravings were satisfied with pizza from Dewey’s, our local fave, with lots of goat cheese and a harvest salad with dried figs and goat cheese. Yum!
Saturday: Cilantro burgers with Sriracha fancy mayo. Hubby bubby had the urge to experiment with the burger so he added some parm and other seasoning to the patty and made a fancy mayo/Dijon sauce. My burger was perfectly medium and perfectly delicous…I didn’t eat burgers for 9 months since I think it is sacrilege to eat burgers well done. I hear that I should hit up Five Guys Burgers and Fries since we have one close by and I’ve never tried it. Have you had Five Guys? What is your favorite burger and fry combo?
