It’s Sunday evening as I am writing up this week’s menu. I always find it helpful to sit down with my calendar and look over the upcoming week’s events before creating a menu. Evening meeting? That calls for a quick meal or something I can put in the slow cooker earlier in the day. Afternoon appointment? Again, something fairly simple for dinner. Planning ahead is essential for me with our busy schedule. Otherwise we’d likely end up eating out far more often than we’d like.
David has a firefighter meeting so dinner will be late. It’s helpful to make something which is easy to keep warm.
- fresh fruit salad for “dessert”
I have an afternoon hair appointment so I’ll keep dinner simple.
- grilled brats in deli sandwich rolls
- homemade coleslaw
- french fries
- fresh fruit
We have a meeting at 5 p.m. I don’t want to eat out afterwards so the next best thing is dinner in the slow cooker (or the slow cooker function of the Instant Pot).
- potatoes, onions, carrots
- green beans
- homemade biscuits
I love the occasional “veggie dinner” during the summer when I can get super fresh produce at the farmers market.
- corn on the cob
- sliced tomatoes
- squash casserole
- tossed green salad
- fresh fruit
- stroganoff (made with leftover roast)
We have a music event to attend. I think we may go out to dinner first.
Mexican food after church; something light after “Music in the Park”.
