I didn't totally stick to my plan last week, but that's okay... at least I had a plan... and that helped! One problem I'm having in my planning is that we are trying to avoid dairy products for one of the kids (hopefully temporarily) so it's a real challenge to come up with main dishes that don't include cream-of-something-soup, milk, sour cream, cheese, etc. I'm not being real strict about it, as it is not an allergy or anything, but when the item is particularly "creamy" or "cheesy" we are trying to avoid it. (Fortunately, on the pizza night she is satisfied with bread sticks and salad!) Any suggestions for simple non-dairy meals?
For this week I've come up with:
Monday: sloppy joes, tater tots, cole slaw
Tuesday: chicken cacciatore, green beans
Wednesday: pizza, bread sticks, salad
Thursday: sausage and rice casserole with mixed vegetables
Friday: taco soup, tortilla chips, salsa (we didn't have it last week)
