I realized the freezer is over-flowing a bit so we're fashioning a menu plan around items on hand. As an aside, I began working part-time this summer.. I know working, grad-school & homeschooling - I'm NUTS!! But I was just a substitute for regular staff so my schedule was really flexible. I've recently accepted a permanent position which means that hubby cooks on Thursday evenings. He's capable but doesn't have much practice. So he's working on a new skill :-) And I'm supporting him by supplying easy meals that he can whip up successfully! Even while running kids to activiities.. Thank the good Lord for my wonderful supportive hubby :-) Enough gushing... and excuses for easy Thursday meals...
Monday: Chicken in a pot (one-dish crock-pot) busy night so it's a life saver!
Tuesday: Hopefully out with friends, but should the schedule not jive then we'll just have breakfast for dinner. Scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon
Wednesday: Tuna burgers on english muffins/veggies w/ dip/fresh fruit
Friday: Crab cakes/steamed veggies
Saturday: Pork chops (originally planned pork chops and rice but starting to get inspired by my crockpot cookbook to try something else..) I'd like to have a girls' day out with my little pixie so a crock pot recipe will make life easier... Hmmm suggestions?
