Our Spring Break menu is simple and very kid-friendly this week (thanks to their input!). Since we are taking a few day trips, I made most of the meals easy to prepare when we return from our adventures. What's on your menu?
I am taking the kids to the zoo all day so we will probably grab something on the way home. We have an annual membership from the aquarium at Ft. Fisher (which is less expensive than the zoo membership), but we can get into the zoo for free with the aquarium membership because they have a reciprocal agreement. I am planning on packing sandwiches, etc. for lunch and snacks because they have some very nice picnic areas at the zoo.
Pasta with light alfredo sauce and sauteed mushrooms, onions and green peppers
Chicken tacos with all the fixings including lettuce, tomatoes, onions, shredded cheese, sour cream, salsa! (chicken breast is $1.79/lb at Food Lion through 4/2). I am cooking a double batch of chicken so we can have chicken salad sandwiches Thursday night.
