Meal Plan #5

This week my husband is out of town for half the week, which means any taxiing around of children will be done by yours truly.  This means we need everybody and everything to be flexible and adaptable.  Primarily the meal plan.  Some days may need to be swapped. Some days everyone will be eating at different times. Some days I may not have the chance to breathe, let alone cook.

One night we will be having a selection everyone’s favourite food-in-a-box: chicken wings, nuggets, Chinese dumplings, potato skins, jalapeno poppers, etc.  It’s a mixed plate.  Every now and then, you just need to sink in and own that you want to eat a big pile of junk food in front of the tv for Family Movie night.  It’s so rare to have everyone home these days, that it’s kind of nice to be able to just stick a few trays in the oven and walk away so you can all catch up.

Roast Beef Dip sandwiches with mixed green salad are another quick fix.  The sandwiches are ready to go in about 10 minutes, with a simple, spicy beef broth dip, and mixed greens with blueberries, shallots, and Pecorino Romano.
