Whoo hoo, I actually meal planned, and not just dinner but lunch, too! Don't worry though, I won't bore you with both sets of meals.

Sunday - Cod with zucchini & tomatoes (baked in foil packets)

Monday - White bean chicken chili + ceasar salads  (double batch so 1/2 is getting frozen)

Tuesday - Leftover chili + arugula salads

Wednesday - Chicken sausage and rabe, subbing white beans instead of pasta

Thursday - Quinoa w/mixed veggies + arugula salads

Friday - Going to Painting with a twist...not sure what I'll be doing for food

Saturday - Probably grab dinner somewhere local

And on a semi related note, the next time we move, we will be evaluating not just school districts but local supermarkets, too. I am so over Giant, Acme, and Shoprite. I'd rather drive completely out of my way to go to Wegmans or Whole Foods, because the produce doesn't go bad within a day of buying it and the meat tastes less processed.  At least the farmers markets will be popping up again semi-soon.

Re: Menu Monday

  • Monday - we have swim so we had leftovers because they're quick.

    Tuesday - honey mustard pork loin in the crock, couscous and peas.

    Wednesday - I'm going out so the boys are on their own!

  • Yessss, menu Monday!!! I'll post tomorrow, er, today?....later!, when it isn't almost 2am. Nighttime wake-up are such a B now that Henry can pull himself up to a stand. I think he's finally back out so I'm back to bed myself!

  • Sunday we had corned beef and cabbage. 
    Monday we had chicken stir fry. 

    On deck for the rest of the week:
    -Chicken Parm w/ pasta, salad and garlic bread. 
    -Venison "beef" Wellington (we've had the venison in our freezer and it's time to get it out! It's not a meat we eat regularly...or ever, really.) 
    -Crockpot Roasted Chicken w/ potato and vegetable. 
    -Pork chops w/ apple sauce, rice and vegetable. 
    -Leftovers. 
    -Take out. 
    (I haven't gotten far enough to plan which meal to have each night.)

  • For the Wellington, what did you use for the pastry? Were they hard to make?

    When I see a recipe for beef wellington, I imagine Gordon Ramsey telling me all of the reasons how I managed to jack it up....so I pass on making the beef wellington.
