I never in a million years thought that planning a week of meals from my own pantry (and fridge and freezer) would be this difficult. I mean, for those of you who know me, I LOVE to cook. Never mind the fact that my job revolves around an industrial kitchen for crying out loud. So, WHY, I ask you, is this so darn difficult?
It's because I am forcing myself to take the time and actually plan what we will do. I know that in the long run this is going to make things so much easier - especially considering that one hour commute I have to take each evening.
I am only posting dinners for now. With that commute, breakfast is usually a bowl of cereal right before leaving or a grilled cheese sandwich in the car. Lunches for Big B are usually leftovers or a sandwich. I usually am able to grab a bite at work (perk of the job).
So, deep breath in...here goes!
Sunday - Scalloped Potatoes with Ham, Green Beans
Monday - Spaghetti and Meatballs
Tuesday - Crockpot Chili
Wednesday - Voila Package (Big B will be playing drums, so no need to really cook!)
Thursday - Navy Beans and Corn Bread
Friday - Tex Mex Rice and Beans
Whew - done. I can't believe looking back at this list that it took me so long to come up with it - how silly is that? But it's great to know that I can rest easy this week when I get home each night. I might even make a few of these dishes a little early and not have to worry about it at all!
Hope you all have a fantastic week! Cheers!
