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:

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

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

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

*recipes to follow

    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."
