So, when your teenage son says he wants to make potato Latkes for dinner, what do you do? You say YES of course! That’s what we had for dinner one night – every last 3.5lbs of organic potatoes in one meal. It was delicious.
Weekly Meal Plan

When my son made dinner on Monday, we had to convince him to serve a green salad with it. That was hard to do because he said the Latkes were all veg so why did we need more veg? He had a really excellent point but it was the off-setting of the Latkes we needed. My daughter made dinner Sunday night.
I had forgotten that Ash Wednesday was this week and had to switch around some meals so that we weren’t eating meat on Wednesday. I had actually planned to serve vegetarian chili again on Friday but we were asked to serve dinner at church, which worked out well because we didn’t have any chili left. We had fasted during the day on Wednesday (Lent began that day) and everyone ate more than I had planned at dinner. Luckily, the youth minister called to ask our family for help. I guess you could call that “Divine Intervention” meal planning!
What’s for dinner at your house this week?
