Asked about side dishes: I rarely make them.  Sometimes I'll open jars of pickles, applesauce, etc.  I usually try to do a nutritious main dish with a hearty filler, like rice, pasta, or potatoes that the kids can fill up on.  I don't have time to run around after lots of little side dishes. :)  Snacks are whatever happens to be around the house.  There is always fruit, nachos and salsa, crackers, veggies, cheese...

lemon ricotta
sliced almonds

I really enjoy your blog...your "voice"...your transparency is a blessing. I also appreciate these simple menus...I can get wrapped up in the "sides" sometimes..thinking I have nothing to serve and then ending up going out and buying dinner. (Which is almost always unsatisfying and way too expensive) Lately I've been keeping applesauce on hand for a side,'s always a hit. Especially with breakfast dinners! Have a blessed day...
