A little boy in my class came running up to me first thing yesterday morning with a big smile on his face.
“Mrs. Skinner, do you and Mr. Skinner like Starbucks?”
“Yes we do, why?” I asked curiously.
Beaming he handed me this:
“It’s a free coffee Mrs. Skinner, you and Mr. Skinner can each have one.”
“Oh thank you so much” I gushed.
I couldn’t break it to him that it wasn’t really a free coffee…he was so proud and excited to give it me.
Sometimes kids are so sweet…
As I was looking at recipes this week and putting together our meal plan, I saw a distinctly Asian flare to my choices…I hope you like it too!
|Tuesday||Chickpea Salad Sandwiches|
|Wednesday||Teriyaki Meatball Stirfry|
|Thursday||Korean Beef and Rice|
- ground turkey
- red pepper x 2
- green onion
- minced garlic
- hoisin sauce
- soy sauce
- ground ginger
- iceberg lettuce
- 2 cans chickpeas
- lemon juice
- ground pork
- brown sugar
- sesame oil
- rice wine vinegar
- stir fry veggies (I went for frozen ones since fresh veg is so expensive right now)
- red pepper flakes
- ground beef
We haven’t had lettuce wraps in a while, and I was completely prepared to change the recipe if the price of lettuce had skyrocketed (like all the other produce out there). Luckily, iceberg lettuce was still reasonably priced at $1.98!
Our meatless meal this week is an old favorite…chickpea salad sandwiches. I will most likely serve this with some cut up veggies or maybe even a salad.
I love a good, crispy meatball! These definitely do not disappoint…
To round out our Asian themed week, I wanted to try this meal. I assume the flavors will be similar to our other teriyaki, hoisin sauced meals, so hopefully we aren’t too sick of them by Thursday, Maybe to change it up, I will serve this over noodles instead of rice.
