Meal updates from last week:
The only new recipe to us from last week was the Thai salad. It was delicious, and made even easier because I used a cooked chicken. I did not get a chance to try out the maple grilled chicken sandwiches, but I have them on my list of ‘to try’ meals for the summer. I did have the acai bowl this week and I enjoyed something different for breakfast.
This week we will be eating in Sunday-Thursday. We are celebrating Father’s Day with family and my mom is cooking a turkey. I am bring these roasted carrots. It is a busy week with soccer ending, a retirement party, a grand opening to go to and the last full week of school, so I chose recipes that are fast and easy to prepare.
- BBQ pizza, I will be using store-bought dough, for the kids pasta sauce ham and cheese. For the adults, pesto, salami, cheese topped with fresh arugula from the garden. We will eat these with some raw veggies.
- Grilled sweet and sour turkey kebabs from @nutmegnanny we will eat these with some steamed brown rice.
- Rotini with sausage and peppers. I will take some Italian sausage, remove it from the casing and crumble it. As it cooks I will add some diced red peppers and then a jar of organic pasta sauce. I will serve this over cooked rotini with a side caesar salad.
- Pulled chicken sandwiches with apple slaw from @closetcooking on the side we will have our most favourite waffles fries!
I made some protein balls last week and we shockingly still have some left. See my previous post for a variety of protein ball recipes. I found an interesting recipe for zucchini muffins that I am going to try. There is a secret ingredient in these muffins, make sure you check them out! Breakfast this week will be a mixture of cold and warm oats as well as some acai bowls. If you follow me on Instagram you will know we ate waffles for Father’s Day, find the best waffle recipe here.

Happy Father’s Day,
