I meant to serve this on whole wheat buns, but then last minute realized we we’re out, so we did brown rice. We’re totally due for a Trader Joe’s run. The girls devoured this dish. They loved it and out ate Ben and me. These girls of ours are tiny, but boy can they eat! When I make a recipe, I seriously quadruple it to feed everyone in our house, and even with that sometimes we still don’t have leftovers (or run out).

The pickled veggies came out yummy, but man oh man was it stinky when I was making the marinade for it. I used chicken breast for the meat and low fat mayo and that sandwich was yum-o. Ben says it was better than the ones we get at Mr. Lee’s. I thought it was good, but not sure if it was better than Mr. Lee’s, but I think the healthy factor made it that much more appealing to him. I would consider making a whole wheat bread to go with it, but I think it just tastes so darn good on a good ‘ole French baguette. I think I want to try this recipe that Robyn suggested next time.

Week 4/1 – 4/5
Monday: Spring Minestrone with Chicken Meatballs (thanks for the suggestion Steph!)
