I know, I know, I totally missed Happy Homemaker Monday yesterday. L. was home sick and I was trying to plug away at the library print newsletter, so honestly I just ran out of time. But I was going through old (really old ) posts on my old blog, Pure Sugar and years ago I was so good about posting my meal plan for the week . I thought it was a really interesting snapshot of the recipes and food trends I was into at the time, so I decided to just continue it. Who cares if I make it in as part of a link-up or not? I’m reminding myself that by starting this new blog, it is for me… it’s a way to document and share and I would love for people to read it but if not, that’s OK too.
On the menu this week, Feb. 11-17, 2019:
Monday: Chicken & chicken pea tikka masala, rice, cucumber and red onion salad.
Tuesday: Turkey burgers, tater tots, sweet kale salad
Wednesday: Wednesdays are crazy here. L. has CCD from 4:30-6 and then Noah has CCD from 7:15-8:45. I’m blessed in that I am able to carpool with two family friends and it definitely makes the night a little easier, but dinner can be a challenge. I like to prepare something that is easy to fix and everyone can eat when it makes sense. This week I’m think of making sheet pan chicken fajitas, tortilla chips, fresh salsa and guacamole.
Thursday: ?? Happy Valentine’s Day! ?? I am meeting my parents up in the Berkshires and Laura is spending the weekend with them. If the timing works out (and my 16-year-old doesn’t have to work, video-recording the monthly town board meeting), D. and I are hoping to go out to dinner, but we will see!
Friday: D. and the boys will be winter camping with scouts so it’s just me for two nights! I think I’m going to make myself steak, baked potato, and salad
Saturday: Shopping after work, and since it’s just me I plan to get Moe’s take-out. Probably a chicken burrito
Sunday: Boys’ choice!
Maybe I’ll even start doing a week’s end wrap-up with dinner photos! I really enjoy seeing what other people are cooking up — I get a lot of inspiration that way. Might be fun to give it a go.
