But if you are here, I say “Welcome!”
So I’m trying to get our home under control. You know, to the point that I don’t tell all the kids to go hide in the garage and pretend we’re not home if the doorbell rings. I do love to cook at home. It’s very important to me, so I do make it a priority, but it’s amazing how when I actually have a plan, it frees up so much more of my day to do the other things that need to be done around here. So here goes. My plan.
Monday – Round steak with gravy served over rice. I just trim and cut up some round steak with my handy-dandy kitchen scissors and dump it in the crock pot. Add some cream-of-something soup and a package of onion soup mix and put it on low for the whole day. It creates its own gravy which is great served over rice made in the rice cooker. A definite favorite!
Tuesday – Baked Chicken Breasts with buttered noodles. Sometimes these plain-Jane meals hit the spot. (I’ll also cook extra chicken breasts to use on Thursday.)
Wednesday – Hamburger Patties (made them last week in my One BIG Mess Cooking Night) and oven fries (slice the potatoes and toss in olive oil, salt and pepper and cook at 400 til they’re done)
Thursday – Creamy Corn and Spinach Enchiladas using the leftover chicken from Tuesday night. I’ve made these before and they are AWESOME!
Friday – Dinner Out!
Saturday – leftovers
Sunday – Not-So-Sloppy Sloppy Joes – The word for the day on Sundays is easy. If it isn’t easy and quick, I’ll find some reason to spend money on fast food. But I will have to rename this. My husband has issues with Sloppy Joes. I know from the ingredients that he’ll like this if I call them something else. Maybe Messy Marvins? Nope, I think he might be on to me if I did that. How about Beefy Biscuits? There you go!
And of course, we’ll have a veggie with every meal.
