My boys with their “poppa”
My mom and dad are visiting this weekend! I love it when they come to visit, even if it means my dad will find projects to work on around my house that I never even know needed to be done. =)
For those of you that are new to my weekly meal plans, breakfasts these days are almost always oatmeal or toast with peanut butter & banana and a hard-boiled egg or two. I usually take dinner leftovers for lunch at the office, since I got out of the habit of eating sandwiches while I was pregnant (listeria and whatnot), and now I’m too lazy to make a sandwich in the morning. I’m not following my theme nights this week since I’m off work on Monday for MLK Jr. Day. Here’s what we’re having this week:
Sunday – meatloaf, roasted sweet potatoes, green beans (This meatloaf recipe makes a LOT, so I usually split it into two “loaves” and freeze one for later.)
Monday – Chicken & pesto with spaghetti squash
Tuesday – Falafel, pita & Greek salad (aka Greek Night, one of my favorites)
Wednesday – Leftovers
Thursday – Thai-style ground beef, brown rice, and stir-fried carrots, bell peppers & sugar snap peas
Friday/Saturday – eat out/leftovers/ and maybe some chicken tortilla soup? Do you have a recipe you can recommend?
What’s your biggest struggle when it comes to getting dinner on the table — figuring out what to cook, getting to the grocery store to shop, having time to cook, or not knowing how to cook the things you want to?
