So menu planning has taken on a whole new dimension now that I'm a workin' woman. Most days I arrive home around 6:30 - the absolute LAST thing I want to do is whip something up... I wanna enjoy with my kiddos!!! So we've found some solutions - 1. crockpot... face it, I've always LOVED my crockpot... now I love it and need it... 2. preplanning... not everything needs to be done in the 20 minutes before we actually eat it... 3. Hubby is learning to cook ;-)
Sat - Crab cezear salads
Sun - grilled pork chops, german potato salad, veggie (note extra potatoes cooked for Monday's dinner)
Mon - crockpot meatloaf, mashed potatoes & green beans
Tues - macaroni & cheese (prepped night before & hubby just needs to pop in the oven when he gets home) broccoli (Little Pixie's favorite meal night :)
Wed - Shrimp tacos, salad (prepackaged veggies are my current crutch)
Thurs - Out for a big pizza party night!!
Fri - Turkey reubens w/ a veggie tray
So there are my little survival secrets ~ what are yours?
