What’s Cookin’ This Week


Well, once again, things didn’t all go according to plan last week – for a variety of reasons. One thing I’m learning is that reviewing the dinner plan first thing in the morning helps it actually happen by the time five o’clock rolls around. I can troubleshoot ingredients, like, um, take them out of the freezer, throw them in the crockpot, mix ’em up in the bread machine, so that I’m not in a panic hours later.

That said, here’s what I hope will be cookin’ this week:

Breakfasts
oatmeal and applesauce
eggs and toast
cereal and fruit
scones and smoothies
waffles and berries
pancakes
cinnamon rolls

Lunches, served with veggie tray and fruit
PB&J
BLTs
ham on rye
snacky lunch
pasta salad
grilled cheese
take out?

Dinners
Peppers and Chicken*, rice, salad
Queso Fundido
Creamy Cajun Noodles and Chicken*
Bean tostadas
Homemade Pizza*
Brats and Hot Dogs, Macaroni Salad*, Veggie Tray
Grilled Tandoori Chicken, Rice Pilaf, Salad and Grilled Vegetables

    I have decided just to call Monday "pasta night" and give the official OK to the fact that I never remember to thaw any meat in time for that evening's dinner.

  2. It all looks fabulous.

    I'm with you — taking a glance at the menu in the AM often means I won't forget to take out the meat to defrost!! :)

    Have a wonderful week!

  4. That photo at the top is making me salivate!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
