Back to reality today.
After a week of lazing about at Mom’s house, it’s back to the regular routine.
I made a monster shopping trip on Sunday afternoon, restocking on all the perishables and produce/dairy that had gone bad while we were out of town. That necessitated a cleaning out of the refrigerator (thank you, SuperMan, for doing that for me!) and some planning for the week’s meals.
I put a crock pot on to cook with my beef vegetable soup – that will be lunches this week for SuperMan and me.
I also baked a Brown Sugar cake, but with a twist. I added a scoop of protein powder (and upped the water to 3/4 cup to compensate) and used a Spice Cake mix as the base instead of a yellow cake mix. YUMMINESS.
I am also planning to stick some oatmeal in the crock pot – trying out Alton Brown’s recipe for Overnight Oatmeal. It looks yummy.
Here’s what I have planned so far this week:
Monday: Spaghetti and meatballs, salad & garlic bread
Tuesday: I’m thinking of whipping up some sort of chicken/pasta dish
Wednesday: Meatball subs & salad
Thursday: not sure yet…I’m cooking dinner for a friend whose little one is having his tonsils out. Whatever I cook for her, I’ll just double and have some for us.
Friday: dinner out
Saturday: homemade chicken pot pies
