family meals: week 61

February 9, 2014

family mealfamily mealSpicy Thai Noodle Curry. This was supposed to be this, but I added more veggies than the recipe called for and it didn’t come out a soup! Oh well! It didn’t come out looking too great either, but it was delicious, and the only ones who didn’t like it were True and Glow. True seems to be our most finicky eater. I want to try this again, but make sure it comes out a soup. Ben was loving it and indulging until he realized I didn’t use whole wheat noodles. Next time, I’ll be sure to use buckwheat, so it will be a little more guilt-free.

Week of 2/10 – 2/14
Monday: Spaghetti and meatballs
Tuesday: Bossam (We just had it, but it’s so good so we want more!)
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Leftovers
Friday: Sushi night… oh yeah!!!

We’ve been so much better at eating veggies throughout the day and figuring out ways to incorporate it in at night, so while the veggie dish isn’t always listed here, it’s been happening. What do you do to make sure your family is getting their needed fruits and vegetables throughout the day?

    This looks so so yummy! I have been so much better at preparing veggies my kids will eat. It’s a total change here. I am going to go back on your family weekly meals for some ideas.

    I was planning on making that spicy thai noodle curry on friday night , but ended up cooking something more boyfriend-friendly instead. I’m glad to hear that it is awesome, now I have to try it!

    I don’t have a family to force veggies on, so I just get to focus on myself and sometimes the BF. I like to add handfuls of spinach to almost any dish (especially breakfast scrambles and enchiladas), I think the spinach makes a nice filler in meals, without altering the flavor of the dish. Also, I’ve recently tried Barilla’s veggie noodles and they are pretty tasty!
