This week we ate out on Wednesday, so it's missing a dinner. Everything this week was super simple!
Weekend Before: This weekend I did nothing. We had a lot left over from the week before, and I was super swamped at work this week. BUT, we did make Broccoli Bites for Dinner on Saturday night and I took four of them and froze two, and saved two in the refridgerator. I also still had granola bars and hummus and pita from last week. You could make your pasta sauce over the weekend if you wanted to, I didn't do mine until Tuesday night. Mine is never the same twice, but I cook carrots, spinich or kale, sometimes butternut squash, and blend it into my tomato sauce (I use my hand held emulsifier but you could use a blender or food processor). This week we had some fresh tomatoes I needed to use that I mixed with a can of organic tomato sauce. If it is too acidic you can add a touch of honey. I usually just add garlic, salt, basil and oregeno to taste. The sauce lasts about a week in the fridge, -- so it may make it onto next week's menu too.
Dinner: Black Bean Burritos (black beans left over from last Friday's dinner).
Dinner: Pasta Bake w/ kid friendly Pasta Sauce. (Just cook pasta add sauce, sprinkle with mozzarella (I use shredded low fat) and bake for 10 minutes at 350).
Pita Pizza (just half a pita with leftover sauce and cheese melted in the oven -- although Oliver has requested pepperoni)
Dinner: Out (I needed margaritas!)
Leftover Pasta Bake
Dinner: Veggie Quesadillas
Peanut Butter and Jelly Wrap (PB&J on a whole wheat tortilla - Oliver likes it).
Dinner: Shrimp "bisque"

-- you don't have to use half and half, you can use whipping cream or even milk. I've never tried a non-dairy alternative but I'm sure that would work too.
