I’m feeling like trying all new recipes this week and even doing a little Valentine’s Day inspiration for our meal on Thursday. Should be fun!
Monday: Moroccan Chicken and Butternut Squash Soup*
Tuesday: Baked Angel Hair Pasta with Sausage and Tomato Artichoke Sauce*
Thursday: Heart-Shaped Mini-Calzones and Mini-Muffin Cookies*
Friday: Sweet Potato Chili Mac and Kale Gratin *
Saturday: The husband and I plan to do a date dinner to celebrate Valentine’s Day after the boys go to bed. This is where we make something really simple for the kids and then have a relaxing dinner for the two of us after toddler bedtime without interruptions! It’s a great way to have a date without going out or having to get babysitters. We plan to grill up some nice steaks, twice baked potatoes, and some green veggie (broccoli or green beans) to go with it. I am still thinking on dessert. I will post anything interesting that comes from that meal. But, I highly recommend this “date” night for parents of young kids! It really has been great for our marriage, giving us a chance to really reconnect while in the thick of the busy-ness of life with little ones!
