Day 4

Left over day!  Everyone is having left overs for lunch.
M has left over "chinese food" that I made for dinner last night and a tangerine.  D's snack is 3 mini multi-grain pancakes with strawberry creamcheese, american cheese "face" with chocolate chunk eyes and mouth and mini m&m nose.  Oh and for drinks M usually has water and D has either plain white milk or water.

D and A's lunch
Same left overs, cucumbers with carrot flowers and a grape tomato with seal pick.

Chinese Chicken and noodles
1 lb chicken (I used tenders) cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 lb ham (I had it left over from yesterday's lunch)
1 C frozen corn
1 C frozen peas
1 tbs oil
1 onion
a couple big handfulls of baby spinach
1/4 C Sesame Ginger dressing (more or less to taste)
1 lb Barilla Plus Angel Hair pasta (I use this because it is high protien, it is made with whole grain wheat and also lentils and chickpeas)
1 C reserved pasta cooking liquid.

Cook pasta according to package directions.  In a large skillet cook chicken until done.  I spray my pan with cooking spray but you can use oil if you want.  Remove the chicken from the pan, add the oil and cook the onion until translucent, add the chicken back to the pan, add the ham, corn and peas to heat through.  Toss the drained pasta with dressing while still hot, if it seems dry add some of the reserved cooking liquid.  When all the pasta is coated with dressing add in the meat/veggie mixture.  I toss in the spinach right at the end and mix it in so that it's just wilted.

Last night at dinner M said "You know what would make this even better?  NOTHING!"  So I guess it was a winner!
