I don’t just bake. For the nutritional upkeep of my husband and daughter (and I guess myself), I do have to cook dinner every once in a while. Since Dan works his crazy schedule, I don’t often have all three of us to cook for. Meals for just Lillian and I can lack creativity. We are also trying to stick to a grocery budget and this is MUCH more attainable when I actually plan out my meals. The hard part lately is that all the things I want to make don’t necessarily work for a working mom – too much prep time or cooking time doesn’t leave us any eating time before Lil heads to bed.
Here is this week’s lineup:
Tonight: Peanut noodles with chicken
Saturday: Butternut Squash and Mascarpone Ravioli
Monday: Beef Stew with Beer and Paprika
Tuesday: leftovers (do you love leftover night as much as me?
Wednesday: BBQ Chicken Pizza
Sounds like a yummy week. What do you have on your menu for this week?
