Default April Meals

I have a chicken in the crock pot. We’ll have rice bowls with Mexican style toppings, and I’ll have lots of chicken left for other meals this week.

What are you fixing for your main meals this month?

Default Re: April Meals

I can relate to the picky eating thing, ViolaMum. i have verying levels of picky eaters, so I am basically a line chef. Frustrating. My husband and 7 year old ate chicken nuggets and french fries yesterday (fairly typical). My 10 year old has been on a taco kick lately. The olders ate a soup called Salaw m'chew (sweet and sour soup. it is yellow from tumeric).

Default Re: April Meals

Tonight is stuffed peppers. I am not sure what to serve with it. Ideas? There is rice in the peppers. Maybe green beans and garlic bread, but we are having sandwiches for lunch and I don't like people eating bread twice in a day.

Tomorrow is a baked pasta dish and salad
Thursday is pork tenderloin, potatoes and Brussel sprouts.

If you don't want to make bread, would your family eat a salad? (I see you've got it on the menu for tomorrow.) I'm assuming the peppers are stuffed with meat and rice, so a veg or even two would be a good accompaniment.

I'm putting a coconut curry in the crock pot for tonight. Maybe rice on the side.

It's going to be a lot of easy meals as we have too much going on this week.

Tonight was Burrito Bowls.


The hot season has hit early (at least it feels early) so it's hard to convince myself to cook.

I wouldn't serve anything with it except for more stuffing sans peppers.

Some of you spoil your families!

I would serve a salad with stuffed bell peppers.

We're having venison tips in a cream sauce with mashed cauliflower (I think) and sauteed asparagus.

My daughter asked if they were really potatoes and not mashed cauliflower.

I said: it's mashed potato

I put one potato in with one cauliflower.

I don't think I lied.

She ate most of it.
