My kids have been sick, work has been BUSY, and now I'm sick. It's weeks like this that I don't really menu plan, but am most thankful for the "convenience" foods and frozen casseroles in my freezer.
Here's what this week's menu has naturally evolved as:
Monday- Grilled Chicken with Uncle Ben's Garlic Brown Rice
Tuesday- Chicken Nuggets and French Fries with salad
Wednesday- Baked Pasta with Sausage and Zucchini Casserole (both from the freezer)
Here's what I think the rest of the week might be:
Thursday- Ropa Vieja with rice and salad
Friday- Tamale Pie with a side of Hormel Chili Master Chili
(my darling husband needs a bit of meat and the chili should satisfy that!)
Saturday- Tilapia with pasta and whatever local veggies we can pick up
Sunday- leftover pasta and veggies
The UP side:
I had plenty of easy stuff in the freezer and we're using up some food that needs to be used up.
The DOWN side:
I need to restock my freezer. It's looking pretty baren.
