What We Ate This Week: Green Pancakes, Asian Noodles, & Mac N Cheese!

Breakfast

Preeeetttyy sure our St. Patrick’s Day breakfast is a keeper!

I made green pancakes with the mix from Sam’s Club for breakfast. I used soy milk instead of water and added some green food coloring before cooking them. I realized later I should have added the rainbow sprinkles into it but oh well. Maybe next time. I did add some vanilla extract to the batter.

I melted some peanut butter in the microwave and drizzled it on mine and Miss Sassy’s and lightly smeared some on Little T’s before cutting her pancake into strips. I did add some of the rainbow sprinkles on top and Little T scraped them off and ate them before eating the pancake. 😀

Miss Sassy had two that morning, which is more than she usual has when we have pancakes.

They were such a big hit, I had hubby pull the leftovers out of the freezer before they froze because the girls kept eating on them throughout the day!

Lunch

Also on St. Patrick’s Day, we went to the local Children’s Museum so I packed us sandwiches and pretzels and raisins and a pancake and homemade fruit pouch for Little T so we could eat before we went grocery shopping after having a blast at the museum.

Sandwiches actually was on the menu more than once because we went out several times this week.

One afternoon, I made macaroni and cheese in the Crockpot and we had tuna with them. Some of us had it plain and some on bread or toast. Miss Sassy preferred her tuna with mayo tho I gave her both with mayo and without. I tried adding some spices to my sandwich but all I got was heat. No extra flavor. Oh well. Maybe it was the pickles…hmmm…


We also had these yummy teriyaki noodles from Aldi.

I stir fried some frozen veggies and added some eggs for egg fried veggies.

I also mixed in some hoisin sauce, reduced sodium soy sauce, and some spicy saigon sizzle stir fry sauce. SO GOOD!

We had the rest of pizza from a previous night’s dinner.

Smoothies with lunch once was due to shooting some pictures for a previous blog post and the girls loved them.

This was a different sandwich but good! I smashed some chickpeas and mixed in some mayo and some gourmet burger seasoning from Sam’s Club. So good!

Dinner

Refried bean burritos again with rice and some diced tomatoes w/ chilies mixed into the beans. Had some leftover cheese from the macaroni so I made a big quesadilla for the girls to split and added some cheese to mine and hubby’s burritos. Miss Sassy helped me make dinner by sprinkling cheese on everything. 🙂 🙂

In a rush, we had peanut butter and jelly as well. Huh. We had a lot of sandwiches this week. Lol.

We got home late one evening and were tired so we just had pizza and cheese bread and bananas. Girls were happy. 🙂

Mmm..pancakes

So my hubby eats frozen pancakes for breakfast sometimes. I forgot to put another bag of them on the list this past weekend. Yeah, that was dumb but I thought he had enough for the week. So on Saturday I looked up a recipe for pancakes . I made some for me(that didn’t turn out as great at first) but the ones I made for my wonderful hubby turned out good. He actually likes them! The only thing I was worried about was not having baking powder. I used baking soda(yeah, thought for sure I had some powder!) I only used like a 1/4 of a teaspoon but when I make them again I’ll have baking powder so I can make them properly.

They were a bit flour-y tasting and I think that was because I don’t have a sifter. I’ll have to remember to mix them better next time too. So for the next batch, I’ll need powder and a better bowl. I used a plastic container. Lol.

They were kind of thin, which was his only complaint. Hopefully when I have baking powder they will come out bigger. But if not, oh well. I’ll make him more.

To mine, I put some cinnamon on one side while the other was cooking. In his, I shaved up some pieces of leftover chocolate candy and sprinkled it into the mix before cooking them(he likes the chocolate chip pancakes but doesn’t eat much chocolate. Go figure. Lol)

When they were cool, I froze them individually on a cookie sheet then when they were done I bagged them up in sandwich bags and put them back in the freezer. I’ll have to get the air out better next time so they don’t get frosty. They haven’t yet and hopefully they won’t. He’s still eating them so they must be good! 😀

Til next time!
