This week marked the first time I’ve done a complete meal plan in a long time. We’re nearly through the week and it has gone fairly well. Sunday, Monday, Tuesday – right on schedule and delish. Last night I burned out. Opted for frozen pizza and was so scattered I left the cardboard on it while baking. It was still edible. And the caesar salad was a nice distraction.
Before I forget, the plan came through:
Tuesday: Sauteed chicken with spinach and mushrooms; polenta with goat cheese and rosemary. (The polenta was a challenge to meet the 30-min prep test. Thankfully the M-man pitched in to chop the mushrooms and stir the polenta while I threw everything else together. Fresh spinach is wonderful but always a pain.)
Tonight (Thursday): Italian Sausage casserole with White Beans and Chard; applesauce. Simple and tasty.
At this point I’m not sure we’ll stick to the plan. I’m usually looking for an excuse to avoid the kitchen on Friday nights.
