It’s been so cold, snowy, windy, and icy here this week and if I could hibernate I would! Unfortunately, I don’t think I can manage that with our schedules and meals to shop for, cook, and eat. Thankfully, it’s an easy process with our meal plan in place.
Pancakes and fruit smoothies are on the menu. Mostly because we have grocery shopping to do and the kids can make these while I’m laid up and the husband is food shopping. I don’t say it often, but I love having older kids for some reasons-their cooking is definitely one!
Tuesday: Steak Dinner
This cast-iron steak recipe, roasted asparagus, roasted baby potatoes with caramelized onions and truffle oil, and side salad.
Wednesday: Taco Night
Thursday: New Recipe Night
New recipe night means we’re trying out a new recipe each week. I’m going to try this maple and mustard glazed salmon with brussel sprouts on the side.
Friday: Pizza night
I love pizza night even if we do have to make two different kinds. I’m going to try my hand again at gluten-free pizza dough again. We’ve been struggling to find one to bake ourselves that is the right combination of fluffy and crisp.
Saturday: Clean out the Fridge Night
Each week we reserve a day to ‘clean out the fridge’ to help reduce our food waste and eat up leftovers. It’s always a hodge podge of food, but it’s kind of fun.
Sunday: Cracklin’ Chicken
A new family favorite this crispy chicken recipe is in the regular rotation for dinner. We’ll serve it with roasted baby potatoes and a big side salad.
