I haven’t done a whole month’s worth this time around.
Last week I planned 6 meals and made 5 of them. I made a frittata, shrimp scampi, noodle casserole, rib eye with cream sauce, chicken velvet soup and one night we had sandwiches & one night was leftovers.
This week I am making fish & pan roasted broccoli (the 6th meal from last week), mac & cheese, skirt steak with roasted cauliflower, pork chops with cranberry applesauce, tacos and chicken & rice soup.
Plus I am going to make some chocolate pudding with nilla wafers, unless I can come up with some higher egg content dessert.
Things with high egg content are starting to become a necessity as we are getting 6 eggs a day on average & currently have 5 dozen of them in the fridge. Once it’s warm enough to start having cookouts with friends nearly every weekend we’ll make more of a dent in them hard boiling a dozen at a time to make deviled eggs, but until then it’s pudding, frittatas, scrambled eggs & any other egg based dish I can come up with.
We have baseball practice tonight & then the first game is Saturday. From there every Tues & Sat until the end of May is a baseball game. Now that I know that I can meal plan accordingly. We never had more than a couple days notice on practice so planning was an issue but I know where & what time every single game is & can tell now which ones lend themselves to eating at home & which we’re better off getting something by the park.
We are scheduled to have a whole entire 5 days of school this week! And the weather is supposed to be in the low 80s! So no snow!
You know what that means don’t you?
Or another earthquake
I just can’t believe they can actually have a whole week of school.
But next week they have Monday off so they might actually manage this week after all.
