A belated Monday Menu

A busy couple of days with a child health nurse visit and yesterday a trip to hospital for blood samples. Leaving at 8am for a 9am appointment we still didn't get home until 11.45am!
The girls are so brave, the blood sampling is quite an ordeal, the initial needle prick in their heel then 5 minutes of squeezing blood into vials, doesn't make for happy babies even with a sucrose bribe. So at least they sleep all the way home.

The girls are growing well Maggie is 3340g and Elisabeth 3850g. Rob is keeping me so well fed, I am afraid that I do view food at the moment as fuel, but I still enjoy good tasty fuel!

M: Chilli con carne with baked potatoes and pumpkin.
T: Spaghetti alla puttanesca.
W: Pumpkin risotto.
T: Sausages, eggs and salad.
F: Beef curry.
S: Beef curry (always better on day 2).
S: Salmon cakes.

What was in the menu at your place?

P.s. still working on that birth story.

Those blood tests sound a bit traumatic! Mustn't be much fun for the nurses either, but I bet they like seeing the girls growing and doing well.
Your dinners put mine to shame! I can't think of one worth mentioning. I am rather amused by your square egg :)

Your brave little girls! Your meals look delicious as usual. I remember eating like a machine when I was feeding my babies...such a special time. The square egg is clever!

Amazing foods you've had this week, they all look wonderful.
