Breakfast: mini whole grain bagels with cinnamon sugar cream cheese, eggs, turkey sausage and fruit. My kids just don't eat eggs very well, though I've tried various ways to serve them. If you have some unique ideas on serving eggs, I'm all ears!
Lunch: I made some super easy quesadillas, which were a huge hit! I spread a thin layer of coconut oil on the outer layers of two mini tortillas, piled some shredded cheese in between and then cooked on each side on a flat skillet until they browned slightly and the cheese melted. I used a pizza slicer to cut them into quarters. Served with salted avocado pieces and strawberries. Everyone requested seconds and cleaned their plates! (And everyone is also still in their jammies because it was freezing cold and felt like a good day in stay in our fleece!)
Dinner: Some yummy balsamic cherry chicken I gleaned from Pinterest. (Get the recipe on my Food board here.) I had a bag of fresh cherries in the fridge that I wanted to incorporate and probably ate half of them in my efforts to prep them for the dish. I love anything with balsamic and wine, of course, so I poured a few glugs into my glass after I put some in the pan. The results were delicious, though the kids didn't go crazy over the cooked cherries, they did like the chicken! While I was standing at the stove cooking dinner, Harrison peeked over the bar from the play room and said, "Whatcha cooking mommy? That chicken looks good!"
I paired the chicken with some cheesy garlic toast and some fresh green beans I sauteed in coconut oil with minced onion, garlic salt and pepper.
