Spring Minestrone with Turkey Meatballs. Our babysitter Steph shared this recipe with me. I’ve learned a few good recipes from her actually. Like avocado pasta…. oooh, so yummy!!! Anyways, she told me about this one and she was right, we love it! All of us, baby included. I did some slight changes based on what we had, like using ground turkey instead of chicken, using chard instead of spinach because we have tons growing in our garden, and green onions instead of chives. And of course, I quadrupled the recipe because my little family of 6 with four little girls, eat a whole bunch. You’d be surprised. This was so good and I highly recommend giving it a shot.
Week 4/8 – 4/12
Monday: Chicken Enchiladas with Tomatillo Sauce
Wednesday: Linguine with Clams and Fennel (maybe will substitute clams)
Thursday: Might just pick up food after swim class (this week’s going to be busy)
Friday: Pizza night
We never eat out as a family for dinners during the week. Actually, we rarely do it on the weekend. I’ll grab lunch with the girls and some friends here and there, but we’re just not eating out type people. Ben and I enjoy it, but with kids (and their bedtimes), it’s just easier to have family meals at home. We like to cook and we like to have meals at home. I think we eat out as a family about once every other month. It’s rare for us and isn’t done that often. Plus, it also saves us money eating at home. Though we do get pizza once a week, so that gives us a bit of a reprieve from the duties of cooking. Do you eat out often as a family?
