Everyday Life and Menu Plan 3.5.17

This week was busy with kid commitments and my baby losing damn near all her teeth!
Well, just three. BUT, these were her first ones and she sure had the tooth fairy on her toes. Wednesday saw the loss of the first tooth during recess:

That same night, tooth number two hit the dust while brushing:
And THEN, on Saturday, tooth number three lost it's battle with an initial attack by a Jimmy John's slim #4 and the fateful blow, delivered by a bite of donut concessions at the school play:
On one hand, I feel so sad that her wee babe smile is a thing of the past. And on the other, I kind of forgot what an ordeal it can all be, as eating has been fraught with some drama. So I am thankful these first ones, especially the top two, happened quickly. Hopefully now that she's not petrified of eating her teeth (ewwwwwww) there will be a little more peace at meals this week...

Monday - Pizza
Tuesday - Curried Lentil Soup (from the Cozy Apron)
Wednesday - BBQ Pulled Pork and Slaw Sandwiches (pulling leftovers of this recipe from Natasha's Kitchen out of the freezer)
Thursday - Alpine Chicken Casserole and Green Salad (longtime family recipe similar to this one from Allrecipes.com)
Friday - Baked Chicken Taquitos (a favorite from Our Best Bites)
Saturday - Penne Alla Vodka (longtime staple from Rachael Ray)
Sunday - Thai Meatball Salad with Spicy Peanut Dressing

  1. This Swiss Chicken Casserole sounds good; I'm saving it for future reference! Thanks, Andrea! I hope all goes well with the toothless wonder... :)

  2. Awwww those toothless grins are super! Yay for having meals to pull from the freezer!
