Green Curry with Tilapia and Zucchini Tuesday

I made this a little too spicy again! I guess I need to add a lot less of the green curry paste. It still turned out good... I put it on rice noodles instead of rice this time. I think I like it that way a little better.

The boys had turkey and rice soup and chicken nuggets. Of course they were still hungry after they brushed their teeth. That's a nightly ritual around here.

Cooper's Tuesday Lunch

This is what we're bringing with us today. Almond Butter and Jelly sandwich, carrots, grapes, and animal crackers

Grilled Shrimp and Mushroom Pasta Monday

This non-recipe turned out quite nicely! We sprinkled lemon pepper seasoning on them and grilled up the last 7 shrimp we had on Sunday night (at the same time we grilled our salmon burgers) and saved them for Monday's pasta. I got some mushrooms, sliced them, sauteed them in butter and a little bit of soy sauce, then added the whole wheat pasta (and a little olive oil). We heated up the shrimp in a pan and threw them on top of the pasta with some parsley. This recipe was so simple but it tasted really good!!

Sage and Shrimp Pasta with Zucchini Wednesday

Yum!! I forgot to put the corn in here... and I forgot to serve a salad, but it came out quite nice for such a fly by non-recipe!

3/4 box Cappelini Pasta
1 medium zucchini
7 sage leaves (2 chopped, 5 crisped in hot butter- yes!!)
10 medium shrimp (sauteed in more butter with lemon pepper spice)
1 cup chicken broth (or veggie broth and salt)
Lots of EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) on the noodles while they sat waiting for hubby to get home.

Once everything was cooked or sauteed, I threw it all together. It was quite yummy! The boys also had bacon.

Lentil/Carrot Soup and Biscuit Tuesday

I had a batch of frozen lentil soup and some frozen biscuits. It made tonight's meal super easy and actually pretty yummy! My 3 yo had seconds on the soup!

Lemongrass Shrimp Soup (and Alfredo Penne) Monday

This lemongrass soup was soooo good, but it burned my throat every time I inhaled to take a bite. I want more though! Yumm!! Of course, I had to make something different for the boys... no way would I put them through that heat torture just yet. They had some Aunt Annie's Penne Pasta with Alredo sauce.

Monday's Lunch

Here is what the boys had today: Turkey, Stuffing, Potatoes, Green Beans, Daddy's Birthday Chocolate Cake, and Celery
