I know, I know. I missed a week. All this talk about how you keeping me accountable is such a lifesaver just didn’t cut it last week. Mr. Little Sis was gone for the week and all of my various activities (work, school, music practice and performance) seem to be ramping up at the exact same moment (how does that always happen that way). I just let it go. I let the meal plan go. Mostly because when I got to Sunday night, when I should really start writing the post and working on the plan, I just couldn’t bear to have another required item. So I let it go. I’m hoping our significant archive of meal plans (click on weekly meal plans in the sidebar) meant nobody was left in the lurch. While not having that plan did require a little more fancy footwork than usual in the kitchen, I really just needed to take one thing off the list. Now, I’ve got to add that thing back to the list so as to avoid continuance of said fancy footwork. Ain’t nobody got time to be that fancy two weeks in a row.
Don’t know how it is where you are, but it’s brutally cold here, so I’m all over the comfort food this week, particularly as we get toward the end of the week when they’re saying it might snow, just a little (like for two days). Warm and comforting coming up.
Monday: 30 Minute Bean and Bulgur Chili, cornbread, green salad
Wednesday: Broccoli Mushroom Patties, Oven Fries, Sautéed green beans
Friday: Homemade pizza, cut veggies
Saturday: Slow Cooker Herbed Beans and Barley, steamed broccoli, pickles
Sunday: Homemade pasta (assuming Mr. Little Sis can get back from Chicago in spite of the weather), green salad
Lunchbox Treats: Believe it or not we are still working through some slightly stale cookies from the holidays over here.
Adult Lunches: Since it’s just me this week, I’ll be humming it up with a lot of hummus and salads.
So that ought to get us all ready for whatever this storm is going to turn out to be. A few inches, a couple of feet. That’s the range we’re looking at. Hope you get whatever precipitation you’re looking for and that while the winds may blow, your foundation will ne’er be shaken. Eat well, be well friends.
