Surprise! It is back on! It has to be. This past week when the hubby was out of town and it was my first week back at school, cooking didn’t really happen. At least in the summer, I can cook up an omelet or something. I had plenty of tomato sandwiches and bowls of cereal. I was used to lazy cooking, because that is summer cooking to me.
Now that school and activities are back in session, there is no time for tons of cooking time or even going out to dinner. I am going to do my best to eliminate fast food and take out most nights. I know that is a big challenge, but I want to get back in the kitchen more and at the end of the day save money and spend time with everyone. With 2 girls on different practice schedules, it will be hard! I want to cook and sit with both and talk to them and ask about how their day went, even if that means they are scarfing down a bowl of pasta while I am doing dishes. Here is my meal plan for this week plus a few ideas for leftovers. I usually cook 3-4 times a week during the school year. 1 night we go out and the other 2 days are leftovers. Any ideas you have for leftovers?
Crock Pot Pork Butt– BBQ Pork Sandwiches with baked beans (Grilled Pork and Cheese Quesadillas)
Rotisserie Chicken from the Store- Chicken Alfredo Pasta (Oven Roasted Chicken and Cheese Melt Sandwiches)
Crock Pot Turkey Sausage Chili (heat in microwave and enjoy again) This recipe except I added corn and only used kidney beans and pinto beans.
