I start back to work this week. I will be at work two nights a week from 4 until 9. This means I won't be home for dinner and Jon will be responsible for cooking those nights. Jon can cook, he always tells me that at least. But he doesn't really like to cook just for the kids. So I either need to prepare a meal before leaving for work a little after 3 (it takes me between 35 and 45 minutes to get to work) or plan something easy like pasta or chicken nuggets. For my first week back I am sticking with easy meals for Jon to cook. Next week I may do a crockpot meal for them one night.
We had a last minute addition to one of our meals last week. Jon was home and I was in a baking mood and decided to make some bread for dinner. I found this recipe for cheesy garlic breadsticks. They were amazingly good. So good that I will only make a half recipe next time becuase I ate six of them in two days!
This week's menu plan:
Breakfasts: always served with fruit
toast with jelly
oatmeal with brown sugar and milk
Lunches: served with fruit or baby carrots
peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
bologna and cheese sandwiches
Monday- pasta and baby carrots for Jon and the kids.
Tuesday- Grilled cheese and tuna melts and soup
Wednesday- chicken nuggets and vegetables for Jon and the kids
Thursday- Soft chicken tacos using this seasoning recipe I found and love
Friday- Breakfast for dinner- homemade waffles, scrambled eggs with cheese, sausage and fruit cocktail
Saturday- Homemade pizza
Sunday- Tilapia and fish sticks with broccoli
