Munchy Mouthwatering Recipes

I am trying to get organized enough to have a weekly recipe plan for all of our meals. It needs to be something easy to follow, but varied enough so as not to get bored. This also helps organize what needs to be "put out" of the freezer the night before, and what needs to go on the grocery list.

So this is a basic plan I have come up with - tried to have a healthy balance - lots of fruit and veggies for the kids (and us too). We use all whole wheat products (bread, pasta, etc) and most of our veggies come from our garden :) Our diet tends to also be high-fiber - good for you, for weight-maintenance and proper functioning. LOL! Everything is also low sugar - reacts with my kids in not a good way! We have also incorporated a Meatless Monday - we do tend to eat a lot of meat, as we both grew up on the staple meat-&-veg diet - old habits are hard to break, even if they are boring!

Each week I'll share some of our favorite recipes - very family-friendly and easy to make (believe me I am no chef! or even a good cook - I love recipes but hate cooking - yes, bizarre!). We always eat dinner together as a family, even if husband can't always make it. I always make sure at least the three of us sit together, grace said, manners adhered to (most of the time), and must try everything on their plates at least twice. If everyone (and that means everyone) finishes all their dinner then we get dessert - makes it a team effort.
