This is what we're gonna eat

Last week turned out to be uninspiring - two meals were so markedly horrible that I've actually crossed them out below, thus erasing them from the official record. And this week we're sick AND the kids are home for March Break, which means that I'm trying to strike the right note of foods that are comforting and also fun for the ungrateful monsters.

Supper - Pasta with Rainbow Veggies. And an alfredo sauce, just to balance things out.

Breakfast.... Oooh! I forgot to plan something for breakfast. Perhaps someone else will make it. That would be lovely.

Lunch - This marshmallow fluff/strawberry fruit dip and a fruit tray.

Supper - Beef and Bean Burrito Bake (which obviously has a thuddingly prosaic name, but is quite nice AND really high in iron.) and a coleslaw made with lots of different vegetables, so we don't get scurvy on top of what we already have.

Tuesday - St. Patrick's Day
Breakfast - Irish Oatmeal and some baked breakfast fruits.

Lunch - Zucchini Pancakes with sour cream and applesauce.

Supper - Corned Beef and Cabbage with mashed potatoes, Irish Soda Bread and a key lime pie for dessert.

Breakfast - French Toast
Lunch - Stuffed Tuna Buns, raw veggie tray
Supper - Pasta Puttancesca

Breakfast - Heavenly Hots
Lunch - Egg Salad Sandwiches and once again, the raw veggie tray of virtue.
Supper - Pork Satay, Vaguely Chinese Veggies and Brown Rice

Breakfast - Cheese Omelets
Lunch - Baked Beans and Peppers on Toast
Supper - Pizza Rustica

Hope you have a fun week with everyone on break.

I think I need to know what a "baked breakfast fruit" is defined as...and also, what are "Heavenly Hots"? They sound so intriguing.

OK I was going to ask the same tell when you are feeling better.

I just cannot figure out how you get all this done. Seriously I'd be finishing cleaning up from breakfast and then have to start making lunch.

Looks great! My mom made us corned beef and cabbage for Sunday dinner, so now I have to figure out a new meal for St. Patrick's Day. Colcannon, maybe?

I hope you're feeling better.
