Whats for Dinner=Whats for lunch

Standard

I am so shocked that I have not blogged in forever! So I will do an easy peasy meal and school lunch idea šŸ˜€ This also qualifies for MSPI meal as well.

Tonight we are having spaghetti w/ turkey meatballs and some butter bread I think. (my son w/ the allergy is for some reason ok with cows butter). Im still not into the whole veggie thing yet. Hoping when hubby comes home he will help me incorporate more veggies.

For D’s school lunch tomorrow I will pack him up some left over spaghetti with turkey meatballs, butter bread, and apple slices w/ peanut butter also send him with some Tropical fruit punch that has 100% Vitamin C as he is getting over a cold.

We are both excited because this is his first hot meal he is taking to school :D. So far it has all been cold lunches. Which were usually sandwiches of some sort or left overs which could be eaten cold.

For the spaghetti I actually use linguine noodles, tomato sauce, seasonings, etc. Then the meatballs, ground turkey, egg, seasonings, panko breadcrumbs, and let those cook in the sauce. Very very easy :D. Hope you all enjoy! Camera is out of commission so unless I get energetic and use the webcam to take a pic I will unfortunately not be sharing pics of meals until I get a new digital camera.

So Far So Good

Standard

Today is day 4 for R not having any dairy, soy, or beef. He is doing very well. Sleeping much better and seems to be happier and more energetic. The energy is probably from all the fresh fruit. He also seems to have a much better appetite. So far we have had tacos which for him i warmed up corn tortillas in goats milk butter, browned ground turkey with seasonings, and shredded goats cheese. He wasnt too thrilled about eating it without his favorite taco sauce but it had soy in it so i had to do away with it. Then last night we had breakfast for dinner. Over easy eggs, sausage links, and toast with goats butter. I also switched him to almond milk which he seems to love. He is eating so much fruit and yogurt. He absolutely adores fresh fruit. Cherries appear to be his favorite so far. I love exploring new stuff with him. And for breakfast he either has yogurt with fresh fruit or organic gluten free rice krispies with almond milk and strawberries šŸ™‚ If your child has MSPI and you need some ideas for where to find these products or what to make please message me.

~New diet for R~

Standard

So, I cant remember if I have mentioned R’s milk and soy allergy but yes Im certain he has always had milk soy protein intolerance. I just have not had it officially diagnosed because I feel the testing is too extreme. I just have cut out the obvious sources of dairy and soy for him. However, recently Ive noticed that he isnt quite completely happy and normal feeling. Seems like he is always teething. Having diahrrea and so forth. So I started doing some research and found that there was hidden soy and casein(the milk protein) in some of the foods we were eating. Sooo, I made a menu plan that didnt include ANY dairy or soy, and I mean ANY! I bought fresh fruits and veggies for us, which is going to be hard for me because I am not big on either. BUT none the less I did. I have to get used to this diet to breastfeed our little princess when she makes her appearance. IĀ  have a slight allergy to soy and dairy while pregnant too. I found out today that R is just madly in love with cherries. Oh! and for some crazy reason my darling is able to digest goats milk and goats milk products just fine. So right now he is snacking on cherries, strawberries, and goat cheese crumbles. He is in absolute heaven! A bloody mess, but heaven šŸ™‚ I’ll have to snap a picture soon and put it here in the post so you can see just how filthy fun he is. So here is our menu plan for this upcoming paycheck. Just meals, havent set days to them yet but I will be doing tacos with goat cheese tonight…

If you need any brand names of products I bought or detailed recipes just message me and let me know. Im hoping he likes our new diet. Im sure he will as he usually hates any form of cows milk. any dairy u see or know needs to be used is substituted with an alternative. He is drinking almond, goats, or rice milk and has all goats products for the rest of his dairy products. Im also making his bread from scratch to avoid hidden dairy and soy. Hopefully in a few days he will be a completely new boy. ALSO, coconut milk ice cream is dairy and soy free! the only one so far that doesnt contain soy lecithin.

Starting the day

Standard

Today is going to be rough. I didnt keep up with my homework this week so Im quite behind. Now, I have to spend all day trying to get it all done. Along with homework I think Im going to try to get some laundry done. I dont have too much to do I dont think, just 2 or 3 loads. Plus I really want to use my new fabric softner.

For dinner tonight we are going to go simple. No homemade all organic meal for us tonight. Once Im all healed up I will definitely be doing more homemade cooking. Lean White Turkey Pan RoastOn the menu for tonight, is all white turkey loaf from Jennie-O, mashed potatoes, and corn. Mmmm sooo yummy! All I have to do is throw it in the oven and two hours later, viola! Dinner! I absolutely adore these Turkey roasts from Jennie-O they are so easy and very yummy! Very well priced too. So next time you need an easy dinner pick one up at the grocery store in the frozen section. Make sure you allow yourself a few hours cause the turkey takes about two and a half hours to roast in the oven if I remember correctly. I will post pictures tonight after the dinner is completely finished and plated.

Well, I need to get off here and get busy with my daily tasks. Dont forget to read your daily proverbs šŸ™‚ Have a blessed day ladies.

Easy Peasy Meals for Mommies

Standard

Tomorrow is MONDAY! Ok ya I know I shouldn’t be excited, however, I am. Tomorrow I am making one of my favorite dishes, Chicken Noodle Cassarole. This dish is super easy :). Start with boneless skinless chicken breast. I usually use two decent sized pieces for my family. Then you can either grill it up in a pan or you can bake it OR (this is what i do) boil it. Boiling is easy cause you pretty much set it and leave it. And we are all looking to make it simple right? Ok after the chicken is cooked or during cooking the chicken, you’ll want to cook the noodles. I like to use spirals or penne. After both are cooked and drained. Cut up the chicken or shred it however you would like. I dice it. Then take a can or two of cream of chicken soup and put it in a sauce pan. Then add about 1/2 cup of half and half. Then salt and pepper to taste. I also like to add a good amount of garlic powder! Yummy! This is the basic recipe. If you would like to add cheese or vegetables feel free šŸ™‚ After all the ingredients are done mix them together in a cassarole dish and top with cheese and cook in the oven on 400 degrees for about 15 minutes just to get all the flavors meshed together. If you didnt throw veggies in with it I like to eat corn with it. Also you can make some garlic bread on the side as well šŸ™‚ I will be posting pictures of it tomorrow! Its our first time using all organic products as well so this should be interesting!

I hope you all enjoy! Feel free to leave your favorite easy recipes as well.
