Dinner this week.

As part of 2012 organizational strategies, I am meal planning for the entire week. I would say "on Monday" but you won't be fooled.  It's Tuesday. 

Baby steps. 

This is what's for dinner at our house this week. I turned to Pinterest for inspiration this morning. I pin yummy looking dishes all the time. It's time to start making them!  So I'm off the to the store with my list in hand. I hope it all turns out as good as it looks.

1.  Balsamic glaze chicken, 2.  Autumn chopped salad, 3.  Parmesan crusted tilapia, 4.  Lemon chicken soup with orzo and baby spinach.

So now many of you with young children are wondering what in the world I do to my children to get them to eat such a variety of foods. Don't be fooled by my pretty pictures. My kids are picky just like yours.

Here's what I imagine the kid version of each meal will entail:

1. chicken breasts without the balsamic glaze, roasted pepper and mozzarella {their loss}, 2. leftover chicken breasts with a side of lettuce, pears and dried cranberries {but not mixed together and dressed}, 3. I think I can sell the tilapia, though will have a side of pasta to ensure full bellies, 4. rotisserie chicken, raw spinach and carrots {undressed}, and orzo {basically the soup disassembled - silly kids}.

So, what's for dinner at your house this week? And do you also serve your kids' disassembled dinners or are yours simply more adventurous than mine?
