I am never more thankful to have a Menu Plan than on week's like this past one. Things have been quiet on the blog, but noisy in our home. Around here it's been runny noses and achy heads. Ed and I swapped being sick - he first, then me. I suppose that's a blessing: we weren't really sick at the very same time. However, caring for each other (and the kids, house, work) left no time for blog writing.
Thank goodness we had a plan in place for meals!
There's a few meals we didn't get to last week, that are back on the plan for the coming days. We veered away from the plan a bit last week, we made some simpler meals (though nothing we ever make is ever very complicated). A couple easy-pinch-hitter type meals were subbed in: bean burritos and french toast with peaches.
Here's to a healthier week ahead!
What's on our Menu this week:
Sunday: Ikea Hack meatballs, Rice, Peas and Spinach Salad
Monday: Easy Chicken Fingers, Mashed Potatoes (making double for a "Planned Over" later in the week), Kid's Choice Vegetable TBD
Tuesday: Dump and Dash Slow Cooker Chili (recipe coming soon!) with skillet cornbread
Wednesday: Shepherd's Pie (with "Planned Over" Potatoes from earlier in the week and LGB helper)
Thursday: Roasted Pork Tenderloin (recipe coming soon!), creamy noodles and broccoli
Friday: Jelly Chicken with Broccoli and Cous Cous Salad
Saturday:My mom's birthday dinner - her choice!

What do you make at your house, when the cook is sick?
