I loved having the kids home from school on Friday. I know Bubba did too. But – the mini vacation is over.
Reality is knocking at the door.
But I am ready – so BRING IT ON.
(I know I say this over and over again – but I really deal with the reality of the week when I know what the hell I am feeding my family!)
Tonight was easy. Since Hubby and Pootie are flying home from being out of town and I did my cleaning and shopping today…I opted for a large take and bake pizza from my favorite grocery store (Aldi) for the 3 kids (Bubba also feasted on his leftovers from El Valle). I am nibbling on the leftover Thai Basil Chicken from Friday night.
Pork Chops, Mac and Cheese and Green Beans. I’m going back and forth between the Rosemary Chops I cooked about two weeks ago (it was a huge hit!) or baking them in a little bbq sauce. I like the Rosemary recipe because it can simmer for a long time and it just gets tastier!
Homemade Vegetable Beef Soup and Beer Bread. I actually made the soup today and it tastes so yummy. Crash will have the 3rd round of state playoffs for his high school soccer team and I figured it would be nice to come home to hot soup and tasty bread. (I’ made enough to freeze some too!)
Taco night – the family will be very happy because I included chorizo on my list today! They like adding this to their tacos…I’ll also have refried beans and corn.
Spaghetti and Salad
And that’s as far as I got!
Enjoy your week -
