It is my first week with MY class (last week, our kinderkids were not assigned to a class so they "floated" all day). And that means I am one tired mama by the end of the day. But I really am making an effort to cook. Most of the time.
I will confess that I strayed from the menu a little last week. By Friday I couldn't even think about cooking. We went out to eat instead. And I enjoyed every bite. Then I somehow had forgotten Hubby was going out of town over the weekend for work, so that threw my whole weekend plans off. Needless to say, I have already had protests that I did NOT make any mostaccioli. I will have to make that up to them soon.
Anyway, here is my menu for this week of survival. We will see if I pass the test or not. :)
Saturday (after changing things around): Korean Beef and Basmati Rice, carrots and Ranch, honey butter biscuits
Sunday: Chicken spaghetti (even with Hubby gone, they ate almost ALL of this. I had like 1/3 a serving left over for lunch yesterday), garlic bread
Monday: Pulled Pork Sandwiches (new recipe), Waffle Fries (a nice frozen version. Once in a while I have to resort to frozen)
Tuesday: Roasted Lemon Garlic Herb Shrimp (new recipe...YUM!), angel hair pasta, salad, asiago garlic bread
Wednesday: On Your Own
Thursday: Chicken Stuffing Bake in the Crockpot (kinda a new recipe), carrots/Ranch, some sort of bread (not sure what yet :)
Friday: Taco Night!, salsa
Saturday: Our grilling night is dealing with interference from that Razorback game. Bummer. :(
I am not going to lie. It is tempting to eat out every single night this time of year.
But I am standing strong.
At least tonight. :)
