Monday Meal Planning

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.

Thursday - Roast Chicken , Mom's Asparagus , and mashed potatoes

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.

  1. I'm sorry you're so stressed out, but at least you'll be eating well. The menu sounds delicious. I'm dying to try asparagus a la Jessie's mom. It sounds amazing!
