Meal Plan Monday and more...

Happy Monday! I hope your week is starting off well! Our's is off to a little bit of a rough start, but more about that later...
A few of you have asked if Landry eats what we have planned to eat on our "menu." Yes, she does. Since she was little, we have tried giving her a wide sampling of different foods. She is not very picky, and will eat just about anything. Here is an example of one of our super simple meals from last week...Spinach Salad and Baked Sweet Potatoes.
My plate...

She did a great job eating almost everything! She was not a huge fan of the sweet potatoes because they were hot when she first tried them. She kept blowing on them, but she wasn't able to convince herself that they were okay. :)

This week's meal plan is:

Lunch-Black Bean and Feta lettuce wraps {recipe below}
Dinner-Dinner meeting for church

Lunch-Lettuce wraps (again!)
Dinner- Parmesean Crusted Chicken with steamed veggies

Lunch-Baked sweet potatoes
Dinner- Pasta Toss with Broccoli
(basically whole wheat pasta boiled with broccoli then tossed with butter, parm, salt and pepper)


Lunch- Leftovers
Dinner- Homemade Pizza

Brunch- Quiche
Dinner- Probably having a bonfire with friends, so hotdogs!

Lunch-Spinach Salads
Dinner- White Chicken Chili

Now...a recipe! 
We eat this a lot. It is a super easy and light lunch or dinner. It is great leftover, cheap, and healthy!

Black Bean and Feta Lettuce Wraps
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 can black beans (rinsed)
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/3 cup italian dressing
6-10 lettuce leaves

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. I like to put mine in the refrigerator and let it cool completely before serving in the lettuce leaves. You could also just cook the rice ahead of time, cool it, and then mix all together right before serving. I just like it cold, you could really do it either way.

 We seriously love this! The pictures might look a little yuck, but I promise, these are great!

Okay, so here is what is going on at our house today that is making things a little rough...

See that rash?! Landry woke up with it this morning, and we have no clue where it came from. She has had a cough and congestion for about 2 weeks now, and we luckily had an appointment with the Naturopath today. She was running fever on Saturday night, and threw up twice through the night. Seriously, it is like she had a little touch of EVERYTHING that was floating around. Anyway, we had a visit today, and got a few answers.
The cough and congestion is probably just from the weather change and nothing serious. 
The throwing up was either a little virus (bc she did have a tiny fever with it) or was possibly due to us receiving the wrong dosage instructions over the phone for some herbs we were giving her. Nothing dangerous, probably just an upset tummy. 
The rash is kind of the mystery at the moment. It could be from everything else she has going on, could be a carry-over reaction to something she ate, or it could be from pulling her sheet off her bed and laying right on the mattress that I used cleaner on when she puked all over it Saturday. 
Poor girl! :( She acts like she feels fine though, just a little extra clingy to daddy.  
Love that sweet little thing, and hope she feels better soon!
