Working the Menu Plan-It’s Monday!
Last week I figured out that, yes, menu planning IS worth the time and effort even though I REALLY hate to admit it. (Really REALLY!!)
And then, I realized that using my crock pot really helped to stream line dinner.
I know what you’re thinking–you’ve been married 11 years and a mom for 10 and you’ve just figured out that menu planning and cooking with your crock pot works?
I know. I like to pretend I don’t know things, but then I realize that smart people aren’t wrong and I assimilate.
Crock pot turkey sloppy joes, tater tots and sliced veggies (carry over from last week. Turns out, Big Daddy and I were flying mostly solo last Thursday and we opted for dinner out.)
Turkey Bake with Whole Wheat Pasta, veggies and garlic bread
CSA pickup day
Sour Cream Pork chops, couscous and more veggies
The girls spend the night with Auntie Awesome on Thursday nights leaving Big Daddy and me to our own devices. We might cook in. We might eat out. The world is our oyster. Kind of.
Pizza Night! WOOOOOOOOT!
Family in the kitchen night
Our girls love to help cook. And, one of the best things about our new kitchen is that there is a ton of space for everyone to get in on the act. I want to try harder to get the girls into the kitchen, not only because they love to cook, but it’s a valuable skill.
Cheesy volcano meatball sandwiches, tater tots and veggies
Pasta with pancetta and leaks, salad and homemade bread.
