Monday is here again! Today started off with as much excitement as any day... Liam came down complaining that his ear hurt... I know what that means! So rather than take him to school, I took him to the doctor who confirmed he did indeed have an ear infection. Something about winter weather making him stuffy always seems to give him an ear infection. This is his third. (Somehow Ellie didn't inherit my tiny ears and ability to get an ear infection with the drop of a hat...) So since I was running him around, I quickly threw some breakfast on the table. The kids had more pancakes, which seems to be a huge hit lately and I made another fridge hodgepodge. I had zucchini, kale, onions, tomatoes, and some Isernio's chicken sausage. (I also had multiple cups of coffee with unsweetened coconut milk!)
Lunch was a giant green salad. I blanched some broccoli, sliced up a whole head of romaine, cut up half an avocado, and tossed it with some remaining Green Goddess dressing. I topped this with some sliced tomatoes and crumbled more sausage on top.
For dinner I made Chicken and Dumplings Soup. I've never had it before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The chicken was juicy and falling apart, and the dumplings were plump and chewy. The dumplings were made of a mixture of almond meal and cassava flour and they were super easy! The meal was extremely comforting and homey. If you were sick, I can see how this would be the ultimate comfort food! I'm digging this new "Paleo Soups and Stews" book by Simone Miller!
