A Week of Eating At Our House

I’ve been asked several times what we typically eat at our house.  Funny how all of us moms want to know how other mom’s feed their families so we can gather ideas and get inspiration.  Because I’d love to know what YOU ate at YOUR house this past week!  🙂

So I will tell you everything (I think) I ate at my house a few weeks ago.  I wrote it all down on scrap paper that week and it’s just now making it to the blog.  🙂
I only recorded what I ate that week, my hubby and children may have ate slightly different, but probably mostly the same.

Sunday-
Pancakes with fondue sauce (chocolate pancakes!)
Grilled Asparagus (a ton of it)
Fajitas- Wheat tortilla, vegan sour cream substitute, salsa, onion, bell peppers, tons of guacamole, cilantro lime rice
Fajitas again for dinner

Monday-
Apple cider vinegar drink, banana, almonds
3 salads this day with beans on them, tomato, and cashew dressing.  It was so good, I kept wanting more of this salad!  It was really filling with the beans on it!
Cucumbers with vegan ranch dip

Tuesday-
Apple cider vinegar drink
Chocolate fondue pancakes again because they were so good on Sunday so we made some more!
Pancakes again for lunch (Why not?!)
Carrots with vegan ranch dip
Refried bean burritos- Wheat tortilla, vegan nacho cheese dip, cashew sour cream, homemade salsa

Wednesday-
Apple cider vinegar drink, banana, almonds
Refried bean burritos again
Green Beans
Salad
Refried bean burritos… again.  🙂

Thursday-
Apple cider vinegar drink, banana, almonds
Green beans
Refried Bean dip with tortilla chips (I made way too much refried beans!)
Bell Pepper strips and vegan ranch dip
Peas
Sautee’d Mushrooms with salt
Cherry Tomatoes
Peanut Butter, Frozen Blueberries, and Honey Quesadilla (like a PB & J!)

Friday-
Apple cider vinegar drink
Biscuits and gravy
Biscuits and gravy again (they make great leftovers!)
Homemade Lara Bar (lots of it)
I stopped recording here for some reason, sorry!

But you can see… I didn’t cook elaborately too much this week.  We’ve been trying to keep meals simpler because at this life stage (5 children age 7 and under!), we can’t spend as much time in the kitchen.

Burritos are an easy go-to meal, salads are great, we eat a lot of peas, green beans, bell peppers, cucumbers, and carrots.  We make our vegan cashew dip/ dressing by the blender-full as well as good size amounts of our vegan nacho cheese.  We probably had some grass-fed beef on the weekend.  We eat about a pound a week as a treat.  We usually have some homemade bread or biscuits or pizza dough each week.  We usually soak some kind of bean and cook with it every week.  See?, we’re pretty boring!  🙂

  1. It s nice to see you’ ve been very busy, but it would heve been nice to have something related to easter food as we are celebrating Christ s Passover from death to life.
    I m baking my hot cross buns to eat on Easter Sunday, along with a special kind of brioche called “mouna”, we’ have roast lamb with lots of vegetable,
    And on easter Monday a pie made with peas , lots of onions and minced meat, and apastiere which is a kind of milky cake based on very long vermicelli (called angels hair)
    That s our family tradition, which goes back many generations (not the hot cross buns , they came along with my english husband), and as we are a christian family , in fact catholic, the joy of having this food just at this time, make the resurrection of Christ even more concrete.Happy Passover to you all
