*YUM!* and major breakthrough! :)

It's menu time. I'm actually using part a menu I got from Menus 4 Moms. It's a menu from a couple weeks back. I'm using 3 of their meals and 1 of mine. The meals with ** are theirs.

Stuffed Chicken w/ Bacon and Feta **, green salad
Vegetable Beef Soup, Apple, Grape and Walnut Salad**
Baked Flounder**, Steamed Broccoli, Brown Rice
Chicken Quesadilla, Corn, green salad

One thing that I MUST mention is that Luke decided that tonight he was going to eat ALL of his broccoli. I honestly don't think he has touched broccoli in at least 2 months. We had chili tonight, so of course Luke did not eat what we had. He was given 2 baked chicken nuggets, roasted potatoes (I cut them thin and toss them in a tiny bit of olive oil and he thinks he's eating french fries!), broccoli, and a little shredded cheese (because we were having it with our chili). Well, he ate 1 chicken nugget, all of his potato and was nibbling on his cheese. I was cleaning up the table and said (as I always do) 'Luke, let's try some broccoli and finish your chicken, please' and walked into the kitchen. Well, R was on the phone with my dad and I was at the sink. R walked through and I asked him if Luke was finished, he said no. So, I walked back through the dining room and my little booger was chowing down on his broccoli! Of course I immediately looked at the floor, fully expecting to see it all there... but no! He had eaten ALL of it! I was just amazed! I know I went a little overboard with the praise. I mean, he shouldn't expect me to praise him so much just for eating veggies but I couldn't help myself! I was just too excited! As I said before, I never know what he is going to do. I'm praying this is a breakthrough though!
