This week we have two weeknight baseball games! :( I'm hoping coach cancels practice on Tuesday since we have two other nights going but I can't count on it. I also have a PTA meeting on a practice night and we have school carnival set up this week. It's that crazy time of the school year! I also planned a craft retreat week for myself so that I can relax a bit. I'm getting overwhelmed. Since my craft room is at mother in law's it's easy to feel like a retreat without leaving town. That means today (Monday) I'm finishing up a bunch of home stuff and the rest of the week I will be at my craft room when the kids are in school (during the time I'm not also at school volunteering or running errands).
That said, dinner plans this week took some creativity.
Here's what I came up with:
Note- For my own menu I'm streamlining this week to make it easier. I'm having eggs with roasted veggies and greens all week except Wednesday and Friday, which are days I can eat what the kids do. I'm having a juice from the juicer or smoothie and either nuts or veggie sticks for lunch daily, and for dinner I'm having a salad with chicken except Tuesday.
Monday: the kids have cereal every Monday, We have a baseball game so I'm taking chicken parmesan sammies and fruit to the fields for dinner on the go.
Tuesday: the kids have french toast for breakfast and I'm putting in a 3 envelope roast for dinner. I don't actually use envelopes. I make my own dry mixes for this, but I still call it three envelope roast. I need to make mashed potatoes in the morning and put them in the fridge to just reheat for dinner. We have a PTA meeting after school and baseball practice so I will have no time except the morning for any dinner prep at all.
Wednesday: All of us will have no nitrate bacon and various fruits for breakfast. Hamburger chili dish for dinner.
Thursday: Another baseball game day . The kids will have cinnamon toast, fruit, and yogurt for breakfast. I'm inventing a chicken broccoli noodle bowl to take to the fields for dinner. There are a ton of recipes for this type of thing, but I'm going to wing it.
Friday: We all have homemade turkey sausage and applesauce for breakfast. For dinner we'll have Mexican chef salad. It's quick and easy and we'll be coming home from carnival set up about half an hour before dinner.
See yesterday's post if you'd like to know what I do for weekend meals.
