catch up... the rest of March--mommy edition

Spinach, Artichoke, and Chicken Bake
graham crackers, tomatoes and carrots
 This is one of my favorite pasta casserole type dish next to Pioneer Woman's Chicken Spaghetti. I found the recipe in this wonderful blog called Iowa Girl Eats. I was googling (is that a verb now?) "chicken+spinach+artichoke+casserole" and this blog came up. I just love it when I am looking for one thing and find something more! I love reading her past post about workouts and healthy recipes! 

Bratwurst, grilled asparagus and cauliflower
apples and banana chips w/bittersweet chocolate chips

Tortellini, carrots and fruit cocktail 
(without cherries, they usually end up in C's lunches)

salad with hardboiled egg, banana chips w/bittersweet chocolate
(I love the banana/chocolate combination... it definitely satisfy my sweet craving at work!)

Udon noodles in Miso broth, salad with hardboiled egg 

Beef and mushroom panini with deviled egg salad
radishes and carrots

leftover tuna casserole, carrots, green peppers and cucumbers

taco salad with banana chips w/bittersweet chocolate chips
