A Week of Menu Ideas

The sun is out again here! Yay! We had a wonderful, beautiful weekend - - we spent Friday morning at the doctor's office - Miss No-No had to get all (SIX!) of her shots for KINDERGARTEN!!! (I can't believe we have already gotten to this point!! But, I am proud of her and what she has done so far - I am looking forward to watching her learn and experience new things. I don't know who is more excited about kindergarten - me or her!! lol).
Then, we spent the rest of the morning recouping from that terrible event (she actually started screaming NO sooo loud in the doctor's office, I was worried that someone was going to come in to make sure she wasn't REALLY being hurt...however, it must happen all the time...even the nurse wasn't ruffled at all. However, as the second needle just started to go in, she actually pulled it through her skin trying to get away from it - arrrrrggghhhh!!!! By the end, we were both crying...) Thankfully, with the exception of a flu shot every year, she won't need a massive round of shots again until she is TEN!! Whooohooohooo! ;)
Saturday, I went to a kindergarten seminar and then to a photography class (yay!). And today we went to the farmers' market and then went to WalMart to grab some little things that we needed around the house.
And now it's Monday and here's what I have planned for the week:

Beets on Wilted Swiss Chard and Kale
Garlic Bread
Herbed White Beans

Roasted Veggies with Brown Rice
Baked Tofu

"Chicken" Burger Patties
Mashed Cauliflower and Potatoes
Pan Braised Brussels Sprouts (with Pecans and Maple Syrup)

Soup and Salad

Left over Bonanza

Dinner out

Pasta with Red Sauce
Bread with Roasted Garlic Bulbs

How do you deal with your kids' shots? What works? What doesn't?

More later! (:
