I did yoga yesterday (felt amazing!!! Why don't I do it every day???), took boys to & fro to soccer, went to Costco 2x (a change in menu plans, but it was worth it), listed something on eBay, and took care of some paperwork at home.
I bought ground beef at Costco, with an expectation that I would make meat loaf. Everyone was "neutral" on it last time I made it. I decided to experiment with a different recipe, and a quick Allrecipes search turned up Baked Spaghetti. I've made Baked Spaghetti before, but the recipe has always turned out pretty dry, & nothing to write home about. This recipe, however, was incredible. I made it exactly as called for. I'll add that it's super rich. Three of us ate it (Nick won't eat things mixed together, so ate pasta & meatballs), and it will likely make 4 dinners for 3 people. The key step was to dreg the spaghetti noodles through the butter/parmesan blend before baking. It made all of the difference! If you have a smaller family or don't like leftovers, I recommend cutting this in half. Enjoy!
Here's our menu plan for the upcoming week:
- Saturday - Baked spaghetti
- Sunday - chicken risotto
- Monday - homemade naan pizza
- Tuesday - leftover baked spaghetti
- Wednesday - leftover risotto
- Thursday - leftover pizza
- Friday - tacos
So, what's on the to do list for today?
- Thanks to Sam, I want to do a goal check in, now that 50 days of the year have elapsed.
- Make homemade rolls
- List 2 more things on Ebay
- Help the boys with their packing
- Take the kids to football
- A trip to the library
- Produce stand
- Gather all tax documents
- Wash all of the bedding
- Have Sam write birthday thank you notes
- Some sort of low impact cardio (my leg is still bothering me)
- Finish up some budgeting work
- Read my book for at least 30 minutes.
That's it! Do you have any good recipes to share? What's the one thing you hope to accomplish over this long weekend (if you are lucky enough to have a bonus day off?)
