We're gearing up for another busy week (I suspect I will say the same thing every week until the kids are grown and move out) so we're aiming for quick and easy, nutrient-packed meals. Grady and I had fun playing "restaurant" yesterday, and he tried a pasta shape he previously rejected, so I'm going to try to encourage him to help me in the kitchen this week. Wish me luck.
Monday: Mom's Macaroni & Cheese served with a veggie plate (and chicken wings for Shawn).
Tuesday: Three-bean Chili served with fresh fruit and veg, and possibly fresh guacamole if I get over the avocado rage I felt last week at getting two rotten avocados in the bag of four (which cost $6! Rage!).
Wednesday: Chili Cheese Baked Sweet Potatoes. Oh child, I am living for Wednesday. I'm going to make baked sweet potatoes and then top with leftover chili and a mountain of grated pepper jack cheese. Served with roasted broccoli and apple slices.
Thursday: Michigan Hot Dogs made with leftover chili. Served with coleslaw.
Friday: BLT sandwiches or grilled pizza. We'll decide when we get there.
What's on your meal plan this week?
