Stressed-Out Comfort Food Edition
I'm going to get right to it tonight, because I need to take some time to unwind (I'm seriously tightly wound right now) before bed.
Monday - Macaroni and Cheese and Hot Dogs
We have really been digging the Kraft Thick 'n' Creamy macaroni and cheese dinner lately. Not the best, of course, but it does in a pinch. Then we top it off with a little sriracha for a kick. I eat my hot dogs with ketchup and onions, but Aaron prefers chili dogs with mustard and onions. This is our ultimate quick comfort meal, and I am craving it like mad today.
Tuesday - Chicken Cobb Salad and a baguette
Really? I could even eat this salad without the chicken, although the chicken is good. It's truly the bacon, feta and dressing that make it.
Wednesday - Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Creamy Cole Slaw
For the pulled pork, I cook some pork chops then shred them when they're cool enough to touch and heat the meat in a pan with whatever BBQ sauce I have on hand. I like to eat my slaw on the side, but Aaron prefers to put it on top of the pork in the sandwich. Both ways are absolutely delicious.
OK, so this dinner isn't exactly quick, but it couldn't be easier, most of the time is hands-off and it is definitely comfort food. Plus, we can't eat a whole chicken between the two of us in one sitting, so we use the leftovers for chicken salad.
Friday - Taco Salad
This salad is fast, easy, delicious, and cheap. That's hard to beat!
No weekend meals this week. I figure all this stress is worth a couple take-out meals this weekend.
