Breakfast: Pancakes and oj (I should've served breakfast sausage or put pb on the pancakes. Joey really needed the protein for his therapy session!)
Lunch: Turkey sandwhiches, potatoe chips, apples
Dinner: Impossible Mac n Cheese Pie
Today was ballet and T-Ball, but I forgot until almost 4:30!! I scrambled and put dinner in the oven, but Ella had to leave for ballet without eating dinner first and the boys were rushed before their game. sigh, I'll do better next week!
I saw this and thought my kids would eat it. What I did different, since I didn't have any elbow macaroni, I took two boxes of Kraft's Mac n Cheese, put the noodles in the pie plate, then mixed the cheese sauce mix with the milk and bisquick. I think the next time I try this, I'll use a little more milk and a little butter as I thought it was a little dry. I did add some chopped up ham from a ham steak. And I was right, 3 out of 4 kids ate it (guess which one didn't, lol)
