As I look ahead to this week I’m not sure how much point there is in making a menu. We have a LOT going on, which you’ll see below. But I still like having a plan. So let’s take a look at what is happening in my household this week.
David will be out of town on business. I’ve recently heard about an eating plan that involves two days a week of very low calorie meals. With David gone I figure Monday and Tuesday would be a good opportunity to give this a try. I’m going to make a big pot of vegetable soup for these two days.
David will be home late afternoon or early evening. I have a meeting at 5:15 and choir rehearsal at 7. I’ll just stay in town in between. Since I won’t be home until after 8 p.m. I figure a crockpot meal is in order. That way David and Chris can eat whenever they are ready.
- roast in the crockpot along with onions, potatoes and carrots
Our town is starting a new event on the first Thursday of each month and this will be the first one. We will be having live music and food trucks in the Arts District by the university. We are providing the music through our Happyland Music Alliance organization so of course we want to be there to make sure it all goes well. We’ll eat from the food trucks for dinner.
It’s not definite but our son-in-law mentioned having us over for dinner on Friday. If that doesn’t happen I’ll make something from the leftover roast.
I’m going to take my mom to Norman (a little over an hour away) for Indian food for lunch. She and I love this particular restaurant but it’s not a favorite with David or my dad. This will be my early Mother’s Day gift to her. David and I are attending a music event in the evening. I’ll do something easy before we go.
It’s Mother’s Day and my kids are taking me to a fancy meal after church at a new local venue. We are providing the live music via our business. We won’t need anything heavy for dinner.
- scrambled eggs
- fresh fruit
