have been to three so far.  They are Piedmont Park, Centennial Park, and the Old 4th Ward Park.  If you are from Atlanta, you have probably heard or been to the first two.  But, the last one is probably new.  It was AWESOME!  If you are close to the city, it is worth the drive.  The park resides in a newly renovated part of town and has really cool equipment and a small waterpark (bring your suits!  We did not have our so we just played in the water with our

Meatless Monday:  Quinoa and Black Bean Quesadillas served with fruit salad

This recipe is inspired by one of the vendors at the School Nutrition Association conference that I attended. They served this as a sample…I went back THREE time! It was embarrassing but it was the only thing that I could find that I really liked. SOOOO YUMMMMYY!

 

Tuesday: Slow Cooker Coconut Curry Chicken served over white basmati rice and steamed sugar snap peas

I have found that my Tuesdays are crazy because we get home so late from swimming that I need something very quick to get on the table. 

Wednesday:  Pan Fried Tilapia with Rub with Love seafood rub with steamed broccoli and carrots and leftover asparagus and tomato

Thursday:  Heading to the pool!! Dinner poolside…sandwiches, etc!

Friday:  Slow Cooker Creole Shrimp and Chicken over brown rice
