Menu for 8/12/13-8/18/13

This is two weeks in a row that Bailey has completely finished all of her fruit before it was time to go to the store again.  I've been trying to keep up with her, but the kid just loves fruit.  I usually buy a pint of blueberries, a quart of strawberries, and then a 6-8 oz container of raspberries or blackberries (or in this case I bought both) and if cherries or grapes are on sale I'll grab a few pounds of those too.  This week I had all of the berries I mentioned before, plus two whole apples, half a bag of apple slices leftover from the week before, and three peaches.  She ate it all!  I'm glad she likes fruit and all but we're going to go broke buying it for her.

Seriously though, I'm thrilled to death that she likes fresh produce.  I was worried she would take after her parents and be a finicky eater.  We go through bananas and berries like crazy and she even eats broccoli, asparagus, okra, and green beans.  She loves frozen mixed vegetables and eats them with dinner almost every night.  Her plate is the most balanced of the three of us with about 1 oz of cheese cubes, a serving of some kind of fruit (or two or three depending on the night), a serving of frozen veggies plus whatever veggies I serve with dinner, and 1/4-1/2 of a chicken breast or a pork chop most nights.  She rarely gets pasta, we don't eat rice, and she won't eat bread or mashed potatoes.  Seriously I think she's probably the only kid who doesn't like carbs.

Tonight Dad and I collaborated on dinner.  I made the delicious honey garlic chicken that I love so much (and just want to share with the whole world) and Dad took care of the sides.  It was a spectacular dinner.  This is what we're eating this week.
