Despite a few evening activities this week I’ve worked out meals that will still allow me to cook most nights. We’ve eaten out far more than I would like recently and I’m ready to get back into the kitchen!
Mondays are always busy days for me around the house so a slow cooker meal is a good idea.
- roast in slow cooker (or slow cooker function on Instant Pot)
- carrots, potatoes and onions (also in slow cooker)
David and I both have a meeting at 5 p.m. That’s another part of the reason I’m cooking a roast on Monday – easy meal from leftovers!
- burritos made with leftover roast beef
- chips and salsa
- lettuce and tomato salad
I have choir rehearsal at 7 p.m. so easy cleanup is a priority for me. One pot meals are perfect for this.
- vegetable beef soup (using the last of the leftovers from Monday’s roast)
- dumplings in the soup
- spaghetti (I’ll simmer the sauce all afternoon in the oven)
- French bread
At home date-night!
- roasted chicken
- mashed potatoes and gravy
- green beans
- a nice bottle of wine
We have a music event this evening at a local coffee shop which serves delicious food. We’ll probably eat there.
Mexican food after church and save half for a light supper after Music in the Park.
