The redhead got a kit to participate in the Cub Scout Space Derby. So we bought kits for the other kiddos to make as well. Luckily our pack is pretty low-key about these things. And of course, we waited until the night before to make them...
We had an awesome week of dinners. Taking the kiddos to and fro to their activities (all around dinner time) really takes a toll on good dinners. And we like good dinners. Anyway, last week Aaron was able to pick up the girl from dance, leaving me more time to make something yummy.
I broiled a little chicken, whipped up a quick cilantro slaw (my fave), and we had black beans and sour cream as well. YUM.
Can you tell I am not trying to be a food photographer here? I'm not bothering to make this look pretty at all, but I was way proud of this next dinner. We had (nearly) veggie sandwiches.
I used the food processor to chop various veggies (took 2 seconds, awesome), which were served in totally random bowls. Cucumber, red bell pepper, carrot, cabbage, onion. We had our yummy artisan bread, cream cheese (I put dill in mine - mmm), black bean hummus, and a tiny bit of pulled pork from the night before (so two of the kiddos chose to have a bit). The kids had to choose at least 3 things to put in their sandwich (which we were very generous with). This time we were lenient, letting hummus count as one of them and letting the redhead have two layers of shredded carrot. I just wanted them to like this dinner. I had very low expectations, but they LOVED it! Woo hoo! This will be a repeat for sure, and it will be fun to change up the veggies.
Man, maybe I should up the food photography skills... these don't look great at all, but I swear they were!
