Last week my meal plan didn’t totally pan out. First there was the quick Chinese takeout that wasn’t all that quick. Then there was a failure to thaw that famous turkey. Then, there was the realization that my mom would be at home with
Hobbits hungry children for two days and that she would need to feed them lots of easy meals.
So, I caved on a number of fronts, including a trip to Costco, and rolled with the punches on a few others. In the end, I made sure my mom had a fully stocked pantry and that by the end of tonight, I will, indeed, have pulled that turkey from the freezer for this week.
(That bird isn’t as big as I thought it was, so we’ll probably brine it and cook it on the grill. How’s that for an experiment to make up for my flakiness of last week?)
Some Most of this week’s meal plan is simply a re-do of last week’s:
(all served with fresh fruit or applesauce)
(all served with fresh fruit or veggies)
(all served with salad or steamed vegetables and rolls or bread)
Pasta with Crockpot Red Sauce
Roast Turkey (possibly grilled if it’s hot), Potatoes
Turkey Pot Pie
Beans and Rice
Grilled Fish, Quinoa Pilaf
Grilled Hamburgers on Homemade Buns
Eat Out (’cause that’s how I roll)
