Normally, when I don't post Menu Plan Mondays, I still actually DO menu plan, and cook, and scrape food into the trash when my kids don't eat. But these last few weeks, I've felt like crap and Nick's been working late (or out to sea) so we've been eating a lot of cereal. For realsies. They fortify that stuff with extra vitamins, right?
BUT, I can't keep up with with feeling like crap excuse, or the Nick is gone excuse, because let's face it, he's gonna be gone for most of the next three years. Have I mentioned how much his boat sucks? Ohhh, USS Scranton, we miss you so.
Anyway. We'll see. I've left a lot of free days for leftovers (read:cereal) and the like.
Monday: PW's chicken pot pie. Nick was getting on my about only using PW, so now that he's gone, I'm back into All PW, All the Time. So there.
Tuesday: leftovers. And it won't be cereal, we'll finish off that pot pie, you mark my words.
Wednesday: slow cooker beef tacos. We usually go to the park on Wednesdays after school and don't come home until as late as possible, so I can't cook. Darn.
Friday: pork roast with PW's creamy rosemary potatoes. Assuming, of course, that I can figure out how to use that mandoline thingie. Thingy? Not sure.
Saturday: breakfast. Probably waffles, maybe dippie eggs. They're just not good when Grandma Terri doesn't make them :(
Sunday: simple, perfect enchiladas. We've had this before. It's beef, not chicken, so I'm not betraying my beloved Sam the Cooking Guy. Warren ate the filling by the bowful last time. Fingers crossed for a repeat.
So. Think I'll spend the week cooking, or running out to buy more milk for cereal? Alas, only time will tell. For more great ideas, head this way.
