I LOVE finding new recipes through this intentional meal planning system! Between the various food blogs I follow and searching on Pinterest, I’ve got an abundance of new recipes to try.
From Last Week:
The Salmon Croquettes with Romesco Sauce were fantastic!!! I didn’t have any celery, so I used some chopped apple instead. They were amazing! The baby inhaled them. 😀
And, I must say the Braised Chicken with Butternut Squash was delicious!
We are now two days into our gluten- and dairy-free trial. My chronically constipated daughter has had two bowel movements today. I don’t know that I can say how ecstatically excited I am by this.
Our Calcium supplements (and other supplements for the trial) came in today and the kids LOVE the Childlife Liquid Calcium with Magnesium. Hooray!

*We’ve been using M&M’s. But…they’re “milk” chocolate. And, really, it’s not been as successful of a training method as it has been in the past.
