I wasn't as capable as I'd hoped with the meal planning this week (I normally cook on Friday, Saturday & Sunday, & then we eat leftovers during the work week). So, some modifications are required:
Friday - 12/8 (back from trip) -
I will cobble together a chicken risotto Nope, defrosted a Persian rice & bean dish, and had that instead.
Saturday - 12/9 -
M & I are going to a holiday party at our neighbor's house. I'll make quesadillas for the kids. Yes although the party didn't have dinner, as I'd heard from another neighbor. Should have checked! We went to bed pretty hungry, but probably better for the waistline.
Sunday - 12/10 -
Sam has his end of the season soccer party, so the kids will eat there. I'll make chicken pesto pasta for the adults The boys have opted to do another soccer event this afternoon, so skipping this. I'm thrilled, because it's one less meal out, and at a place I don't really care for. Instead, M is making kebabs & rice, with a yogurt sauce.
Monday - 12/11 -
leftover chicken risotto I'll make chicken pesto pasta, as I didn't make the risotto
Tuesday - 12/12 - Soup (freezer) + rolls - Yes, still the plan
Wednesday - 12/13 -
pasta & meatballs - Leftover kebabs & rice
Thursday - 12/14 -
I have a work team dinner. M + the boys will have tacos - The boys will have pasta & meatballs -
Friday - 12/15 - Chicken pilaf - still the plan!
That's pretty much it for me. Here's hoping I get some of my energy back. I managed to clean the house yesterday, & catch up on most of the laundry. We're in the home stretch before the end of the year - the boys are out of school after this week!
What about you? What's on your menu this week? Any big holiday activities on the horizon?
