It looks as though we’ve got something going on almost every night this week. That makes menu planning a bit challenging!
David has a firefighter meeting at 6 and it’s likely to be a lengthy one. I’m hopeful that he can make it home from work early enough to eat dinner before he goes. I had red beans in the freezer so I put them in the refrigerator to thaw yesterday. All I will have to do is make rice, cornbread and a salad.
- red beans
We have a board meeting at 5:30. We are going to do our best to keep it to just one hour. Still, that means cooking dinner sometime close to 7 p.m. I think this will be a good night for my old standby for quick dinners.
- homemade tomato soup
I haven’t made it to choir rehearsal in ages. Every week either something comes up (last week David’s boss was in town) or I find myself still working at the time I need to leave. I’m really going to try to manage my time better and make it to choir!
- One Pot Chicken and Rice
I have a board meeting at 5:30 but hopefully we will be done in an hour. I think I’ll mix up the waffle batter before I go. The rest won’t take long. David can man the waffle maker while I cook the sausage and eggs.
I think this would be a good time to try one of those Pinterest recipes I said I’m going to make.
- Pork Loin in Cognac Sauce
- mashed potatoes
- asparagus (if I can find some)
I think there will be enough various leftovers that I won’t have to cook. I’ll just make up a fresh salad to go with whatever else we are eating.
Lunch out after church – save half for dinner.
What’s on your menu this week?
