Menu Plan Update

It's way past Monday, but I did do up a menu plan.  I just never got to posting it....uh oh.
Last week I made some fantastic turkey meatballs with couscous

And some yum yum yummy Greek chicken skewers with roasted potatoes and roasted veg

Those were two highlights of my last week.
This week on Monday, we had turkey burgers with salad.  Tuesday I celebrated my birthday and made a favorite meal for my family.  Crockpot grainfed roast beef with mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and a beautiful salad.  Tonight I made a BBQ cedar plank salmon with couscous and salad. 
I still greatly dislike any fish, but my kids didn't notice I didn't eat it, so that's good.  They love it.

Spaghetti with a meat sauce
this had been my families most requested meal
they have asked for it for three weeks in a row

my girly turns 3!
Panko Chicken strips
Roasted potato wedges
and possibly a princess birthday cake
if I can get my act together

Chicken Soup
cut veggies

left overs

I have been wanting to make some more snacks for the kids.  I made these super easy granola bars and my family really loves them.  They were so super easy.

Homemade Chewy Granola Bars
1/2 cup peanut butter or sunbutter
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup coconut oil (or another oil of your choice)
1 cup oats
1 cup total of any combination of:  sesame seeds, coconut flakes, sunflower seeds, dried fruit, mini chocolate chips 
**I used sesame seeds, coconut flakes, sunflower seeds, chopped pumpkin seeds.  I'll be adding chia and flax next time
In a medium sized saucepan, melt together peanut butter, honey and coconut oil.
Remove from heat and add one cup of oats.  Choose your favorite combination of coconut flakes, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, dried fruit and mini chocolate chips, to equal a total of ONE CUP.  (I just got out my one cup measuring cup and poured in the ingredients until the cup was full.)  Pour in and stir well.
Stir well, then spread mixture into a 8×8 or 9×4 pan.
Chill for two hours, then cut into bars.
Wrap in plastic wrap for a quick grab and go snack!
