A few friends indicated they would appreciate menu ideas, so here’s my week’s menu. Keep in mind this is a unique week, as we have a university guest Tuesday to Thursday, so there is more eating out going on than usual. Also, I don’t plan breakfast or lunch. Breakfast items are kept around(ramen, bagels, cereal, toast, breakfast burritos), and lunch is leftovers or sandwiches, unless I get the hankering for something particular. 😛
BBQ pineapple pork (freezer meal) (I’m still looking for the link — its a pork loin, 1 bottle of BBQ sauce and 1 can of cubed pineapple in a ziplock bag. Freeze. Defrost and put in crockpot on low for 6 to 8 hours)
Hubby eating out, simple-simple for Doctor D and I
I usually plan to alternate meal-leftovers as I tend to cook so that we have leftovers. Hubby takes them for lunch, and it makes for easier evenings for me. Its likely to change as Doctor D gets older and as our family grows, I figure.
This brings up a good point — any recipe, generally, must make for good leftovers. Some meals leave over very nicely and others, well, don’t.
And, about half the time, by the time we reach Saturday or Sunday, the leftovers are just gone and I come up with an improvised meal. Good options are mac-n-cheese, spaghetti, salmon croquettes, breakfast for dinner, or grilled sandwiches.
So, what’s your week’s menu?
