Monday Menu Planning: Week Beginning 31 January
So I hear you asking what we're eating in this awful heat. Well...even if you're not, it is the topic of today's post so I'll tell you anyway. tonight I'm not cooking in the traditional sense. I have leftover lasagna reheating in the microwave for tonight. We'll be having salads instead of cooked vegies and the combination of weather and the return of school in earnest means quick meals that don't require energy I don't have. As I said to Miss Sunshine, she and her sister can cook when I'm too busy to care. I'm not there yet!
So for dinner at our place, you will find:
Monday: Leftover lasagna, salad
Tuesday: Ricotta fritters, salad
Wednesday: Roast chicken, vegies
Thursday: Tomato & Bacon spaghetti
Friday: Sloppy Joe's
Saturday: Teriyaki chicken, rice, stir fried vegies
Sunday: Homemade pizza
Obviously I've also had to think about lunches today. Ham and salad sandwiches with a lunch box sized freezer brick for the kids, and a salad for me. Miss Sunshine declared a box of fruit salad might be nice for recess tomorrow. Personally, I enjoyed a blood plum and a container of homemade sweet and salty popcorn. I'll have to post about that. I think I've perfected the one thing that has prevented me from doing so until now.
