This week was Winter Restaurant week where we live which meant we could go out to eat and support a good cause. Yes!!!!
Sunday: South Carolina pulled pork and baked beans. Hubby bubby was an angel and made dinner tonight! It was delicious! Everyone loved it. I tried to eat a few beans off of Ryan’s plate and he freaked. That kid sure does love his beans! The mustard barbecue sauce was the perfect balance of sweetness and tanginess. Next time we will double the sauce so we can have extra and put it on everything throughout the week.
Monday: Mini meatball and broken spaghetti tomato soup. It’s restaurant week! We love to go out once with the kiddos and once without. This week we had some illness spread through our house so we were only able to make it out once. Today we went to Salar, a Peruvian inspired place. Hubby bubby and I both got the chicken chicharrones, beef tenderloin skewers with bacon roasted tomatoes and tres leches cake for dessert. The kiddos had a baby kale salad with roasted butternut squash and pomegranates, fish stuffed with cheese and crème caramel for dessert.
Tuesday: Chicken with orange and olives. Mini meatball and broken spaghetti tomato soup. Hubby bubby prepped this on Monday so pulling it together was a breeze. We are always very careful about food safety when prepping food ahead of when we’ll be eating it (more on that soon!). Everyone loved it!
Wednesday: Leftovers. Thank goodness since I was under the weather and Hannah was headed that way.
Thursday: Slow cooker Caribbean chicken. This was a big hit. Hubby bubby ate three or four tacos which is always a good sign that he liked it (he can use the calories!). The kiddos ate lots of chicken and Hannah kept asking for extra lettuce.
Thai shrimp cakes and Thai-style celery salad. Hannah was home sick today so we are saving the shrimp cakes for next week since she loves them and she was just not up to eating much. It turned out to be a Chinese take-out kind of day. We’re using a mulligan.
Saturday: Either crispy chicken with shallots or sloppy tacos. Chicken with orange and olives, roasted sweet potatoes and frozen veggies. This was awesome (see picture above)! I loved the sweetness of the orange with the briny flavors of the olives. Ryan ate tons of sweet potatoes and chicken. He called them “bubblegum” (his word for delicious) and gave Daddy a big, enthusiastic thumbs up.
How did your week go? What do you do for meals during times when your house is ransacked with illness? Hopefully y’all stayed well this week! Thanks for reading!
