Last week was a normal week, or at least as normal as it can be around here. This week things will be a little busier since Jon has science fair at his school and will out late one night for that and Madeline starts swimming on Tuesday evenings again. I am still out of the house Monday and Thursday nights so we will have a lot less family dinners this week than I would like.
Here is the plan for this week:
Monday: crockpot mac and cheese- I have used this recipe several times. The only thing I change is that I use cheese ends from the deli- they cut up the ends of blocks of cheese and sell them in bags for 1/2 the normal price. I will throw it together before I leave for work, Jon and the kids will eat it for dinner and I will have leftovers for lunch the next day!
Tuesday: veggie and chicken pizza and salad- I made a double batch of dough last week and won't have to make any this week!
Wednesday: pasta and meatballs
Thursday: Fish sticks for the kids while Jon and I eat leftovers at work (I work at the college where he is taking masters courses and he waits for me after his class and we drive home together)
Friday: nachos! a family favorite
Saturday: homemade chicken noodle soup
Sunday: brinner, it is a weekly staple around here. Eggs are a great and cheap way to get some protein into our meals
