family meals: week 60

February 2, 2014

hummushummusWhite Bean Hummus with Parsley. I made this for the kids for Friday family night. I prefer hummus without tahini because I never have tahini on hand. This one had white beans, a little bit of olive oil, tons of garlic, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste; it’s so easy and so good! They eat while we watch something together and then we cuddle when they’re done for the rest of the movie. After we skedaddle them off to Ben, Ben and I have our special time together which involve one of our Friday night sushi dishes (see here) and a movie on Netflix.

Week of 2/3 – 2/7
Monday: Spicy Thai Curry Noodle Soup
Tuesday: Spicy Mackerel
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: White Bean Chili (once again dinner club didn’t happen, so this week for sure!)
Friday: Sushi/pizza night

We love spicy food! I cook spicy dishes pretty much all the time and make two batches of the same thing, but one without spice for the kids. I think Ben and I are addicted to spice and our spice tolerance just keeps increasing.

Last week we went through some of the frozen meals I had saved these past few months. I tend to save meals and forget about them, and they end up freezer burn and wasted, so I’m trying to get better at remembering to eat them. We’re trying not to waste food or money and meal planning has definitely helped with that a lot!
