In an effort to be a whole lot more organized this year, and because everyone is always posting what delicious food they make, here is what I have been serving my family for the past week. I also envision this being a detailed account of how I fail miserably at meal planning when life gets too busy. But hey, it’s real life. Speaking of real life, I am not and never will be a food blogger. If I ever were to post food pictures for you, I apologize in advance for how awful they are.
- Sunday: Today was a bit of a hodge-podge in the dinner department. Jim was leaving for another business trip, and we had such a big meal the night before that no one was all that interested in yet another big meal. So, leftovers to the rescue!
- Monday: More leftovers. Okay. I admit it. I may have made a bit too much of that buffalo chicken macaroni and cheese.
- Tuesday: Holly and I did not get home until after 8 PM, so it was a quick stop at Culver’s for dinner. There was no way either of us had the energy to throw something together for dinner.
- Wednesday: I had an appointment that kept me out later than normal. Connor had Forensics practice as well. By the time both of us got home, it was easier for the kids to make a batch of shells and cheese than to fuss with dinner.
- Thursday: Honestly, I have no idea what anyone ate. I was nursing a migraine in bed. I know I didn’t eat anything. I’m sure it was a sandwich or cereal or something. We finally ate up all of the leftovers a few days ago, so there was not much in the way of quick-and-easy meal fixings.
- Friday: We kept it simple tonight because it is Friday and simple is good. Frozen pizzas are not glamourous but they do the trick.
- Saturday: A rather lazy Saturday meant a lazy dinner. Sandwiches were an easy way for everyone to eat what they want when they want, especially since I did not hit the grocery store yet.
What was for dinner at your house this week?
I made a pot roast on the coldest day we’ve had in a long time and it was so perfect. We will be eating it another night too which is nice.
I got stuff to make breakfast for dinner, waffle and pancake fixins and of course, BACON. I mean, what else is needed? Right?
We have frozen pizza in line for a night, too.
I did not put spaghetti in the rotation this week because they all complain about it. I mean. Who doesn’t like spaghetti?? My family.
We had a deluxe breakfast on Sunday complete with bacon. It was glorious.
My daughter is not a spaghetti fan. She doesn’t like the tomato sauce. I have to be very particular about the type of sauce I buy, and she won’t even touch homemade marinara. Too chunky and tomato-y for her palate. C’s girlfriend won’t eat pasta with any sauce. She can’t stand it. She much prefers plain buttered noodles over any sauce. I think they are both weird.
I love a frozen pizza once in awhile. Pizza rolls, too. Nothing wrong with that!
I made a new recipe this week that is by far my favorite to date. It was the easiest thing to make too. Spicy Sausage Pasta Bake. Hubby loved it, and we ate the leftovers with steaks the next night. I’m definitely making it once a month!
Frozen pizza serves a purpose when necessary. I would think it is better than fast food, but I don’t want to delve too deeply into that theory. Your pasta bake sounds like my baked ziti. In fact, I have that on the menu list for this week!
