Yea! We can finally get back to scheduling normal meals!!! Although my husband is a great cook and did an AMAZING job taking care of us with the resources in the house (including making burgers and meatloaf for the freezer), it is nice to be able to begin planning and helping him a bit more with this.
Although my in-laws were visiting this week (due to my new baby nephew's birth -- Joey was 8 lb, 10 oz, and 20.5 inches long! Born Oct 4 in the later afternoon), we have limited the take-out a bit and will be resuming a normal schedule now ;)
Wednesday -- Steaks w/ Rice and Broccoli
Thursday -- Baked Pork w/ Fettuccine Alfredo and Spinach
Friday -- Fall Break!!! Eating Out!
Saturday -- Burgers and Fries
Sunday -- Broiled Cod w/ Herbed Pasta
Monday -- Meatloaf w/ Roasted Potatoes and Broccoli
Tuesday -- Grilled Chicken w/ Fiesta Rice and Corn
A lot of these are "simple" meals that we both can handle, even if I am having a rough day physically. When we can make quick and easy food at home in the same time/effort as take-out, it makes it much easier! This saves money and guarantees better nutrition, for the most part ;)
I am so glad I held off switching to shopping for two weeks at a time, or my husband would have been stuck with a giant list and no help! With holidays coming up, now is not the time to change a working system; perhaps early next year ;)
