What We Ate | August 11-17

Penne with steak and arugula

A pretty good week for eating. William in particular seemed to be going to town, eating more than usual. He does seem to be taller so I'll be interested to see how much he's grown at his next appointment. George wasn't as into food this week but did okay. The oatmeal berry breakfast bake was a hit and so easy to make one casserole that everyone can eat on for several days. It's easy to add the good stuff like chia seeds.
