The Weekly Spread

Hello Winter Break!

The kids are home from school, which means I have to feed them 3 times a day (isn't school lunch amazing?!). To make it easy, I’ll make big batches of our dinner meal and serve the leftovers for lunch. Here’s what we’ve eaten so far this week and plan to eat the rest of the week:

Saturday: A huge pot of chili + baked potatoes

Sunday: Elk roast w/twice baked potatoes, green beans and apple slices

Monday: Dinner: bean burritos + mango smoothie

Wednesday: Spinach Lasagne + green salad + oranges

Thursday: - crustless spinach quiche + grapefruit

Friday: First Century Feast

What is a first century feast? It’s a fun way to celebrate biblical times by eating the foods biblical people might have eaten. Here’s what that menu looks like:

  • Hummus

  • Tzatziki

  • Falafel

  • tabbouleh

  • Unleavened bread

  • Lentil soup

  • Dried apricots

  • Figs

  • pomegranates

  • oranges

  • apples

  • Olives (fresh and canned)

  • Goats cheese

  • Thick plain yogurt

  • Grape juice

I like this menu because it's very inexpensive, healthy and simple. It also happens to include my kids’ favorite foods: hummus, tzatziki and flatbread. It’s very easy for my extended family to contribute because no cooking is required; they just bring a can of olives, bag of dried fruit or some sliced cheese (we have 26 people coming this year!).

What will you be cooking and eating over winter break?? If you have any holiday menus you would like to share, send me an email Thanks for reading and happy holidays!
