So this weeks menu plan went down in flames. I think maybe I made one meal out of it. We were all sick and no one really felt like eating until yesterday (Chris made some pretty fabulous spaghetti.). But I am thankful that now all of us have had it and hopefully it's done, and I'm very thankful that Chris has a job that if necessary, he can do from home while watching 4 boys so his wife can rest. :-) Because that's what I did most of the day Thursday and watched a lot of cooking shows (And now I think I can be an Iron Chef but that's a tale for another day.).
Here's next weeks menu:
Mon~Spaghetti x 2, cauliflower, artisan bread (I even have the Italian sausage cooked already. I feel so on top of it!) :-)
Tues~Tacos x 3, chips and salsa, raw veg
Thurs~Pizza, raw veg
Fri~Some kind of beef (maybe steak), mashed potatoes (freezer), roasted winter veg, salted caramel cheesecake
Sat~Chili, brown rice, cornbread
Sun~Meatball soup, rolls
I went grocery shopping Tuesday night and forgot the potatoes in the car trunk. By the time I rescued them today, they were froze solid. I was thinking I would have to throw them away, but after they thawed a bit, I peeled them and cut some mushy spots off and then made freezer mashed potatoes using PW's recipe here. Phew!
