Tuesday–supper with Nana; moms’ night out at Panera for me
Wednesday–breakfast for supper–pancakes, eggs, and bacon–unless I’m too tired to cook; then we’ll eat out. I discovered that pancake recipe last week, and these pancakes met with rave reviews. It’s a keeper!
Thursday–knockoff Panera broccoli cheese soup or knockoff Wendy’s chili. I made both of these this past weekend, so they’ll be leftover. All of this is really iffy because this week is my nephew’s sixteenth birthday (!!!), and his family and friends will be celebrating with dinner out that night. It’s further complicated by the fact that I’ll be preparing for a medical test on Friday, so I won’t be eating at all. 🙁
Friday–leftovers, eat out, or take out–depending on how I feel, I’m sure 🙂
I don’t really make a plan for our other meals, but I did want to share a couple of things we do each week. On Mondays we’re busy right up until lunchtime, so we usually have baked potatoes from the crockpot for lunch. We just pop them into the crockpot early Monday morning, and they’re ready in time for lunch. I can’t tell you how much it helps me to have that done each Monday; lunchtime is one of the several times during the day when things can get pretty hairy around here, and I find having lunch ready (and girls who are plenty big enough to fix the potatoes themselves!) a moral victory at a low ebb in the day. 🙂
I eat oatmeal (the old fashioned kind) almost every day of the week. I eat it with natural peanut butter and and jelly stirred in. Sometimes, though, for a change, I’ll bake up a pan of oatmeal. One of my IRL friends shared Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures blog on FB, and I’ve been baking her oatmeal ever since. My favorite is the peanut butter and jelly oatmeal. Really, this stuff is good enough to be a dessert. I eat it for a bedtime snack, too, so it’s good at any hour.
What’s cookin’ at your house this week?
