Happy Monday! I’m having a hard time getting back on routine after four days of traveling, eating, kids, visiting, fun, and naps. And it’s a five-day week, so my kids were very hard to get up and out this morning! Yours, too? It feels so funny to me that there’s a whole week of November left after Thanksgiving, and there’s already holiday decoration up all over our neighborhood. I’m definitely not ready!
I am thinking about holiday food, though. I like to keep up with simple, healthy weeknight meals to allow for entertaining, potlucks, parties, and other fun food on the weekends. I’m still using some of the freezer food I prepped in early November; it sure was nice to have meals ready all weekend after our trip to Philly. Budget-wise, I’m using up what’s in the freezer and pantry this week, just buying dairy and fruit.
Here’s the plan:
Sunday–Broccoli Pie (the Mini Broccoli Quiches recipe in a pie plate) and cornbread
Monday–Meatball Subs (on whole wheat hot dog buns), salad
Tuesday–Greek Chicken (tomatoes, olives, peppers, onions) over quinoa
Wednesday–Pineapple Pork Chops with brown rice and green beans
Thursday–Savory Omelets (spinach & feta cheese) with rosemary potatoes and fruit
Friday–Super Easy Chicken Soup (I’m going to throw it all in the slow cooker) with leftover rice from Wed.
Saturday–Pulled Pork Sandwiches, sweet potato fries and corn
