Menu Monday


The teens mouths are a little less tender from their spacers so we are going to try some texture this week. . They are about to gag if they eat any more pudding. We're going to try some apple pie with super thin sliced apples so they will be nice and mushy. Braces go on Wednesday and I'm hoping we can jump right back into pastas before and after the braces go back on. The little kids come back from grandma-cation today and we tidied and organized their bedrooms, added some new wall art and left little presents waiting for them on their beds. The garden perked up this week. We had lots of rain but nice warm temperatures to go with it. I have a nice abundance of salad greens to use up this week. Here's what's cooking at our house...
Breakfasts:

Choice of yogurt, oatmeal, and smoothies (still soft stuff)
Link Dinners:

Apple Pie (they love their new braces diet)
Baked Ziti and garden salad
Crock pot Ginger Chicken with rice and stir fry veggies
Tortellini with creamy garlic sauce and garden salad
Sloppy Joes and tater tots
Potluck - Broccoli Salad
Leftover Buffet

Spacers are way worse than the actual braces. Four of our five had braces and one of them for 10 years! Glad that is over!
