Monday Meal Planning

I’m currently in the thick of weaning (down to only one nursing session per day) and oh, man, is it doing a number on my hormones. I’m crabby, impatient, and liable to cry at the drop of a hat. In short, I’m a blast to be around. Here’s hoping this attitude either dissipates by BlogHer, or (more likely) I’m so excited that I forget to be moody. My mood could also be PMS, so it’s no wonder that, no matter what the cause, I’m in the mood for comfort foods this week.

Monday: Ravioli Soup, Salad, Garlic Bread

This recipe solves two problems: it’s a major comfort food and it’s quick so it doesn’t test my patience. I’d love to try Cassie’s Recipe for Cheesy Garlic Bread if I have the time and patience. It sounds so absolutely delicious!

Tuesday: Queso Dip and Chips

I love recipes where you brown meat, throw it in the crock pot with a bunch of other ingredients, give it a stir, and forget about it until dinner time. They’re the best! And this is one of them! So good.

Wednesday: Cayenne Rubbed Chicken with Avocado Salsa and Lemony Orzo

Avocados can make anything better. I swear.

Thursday: Macaroni and Cheese with Roasted Cherry (or Grape) Tomatoes, Hot Dogs, Steamed Peas with butter

Macaroni and Cheese is my ultimate comfort food. Throw in a hot dog (in a bun topped with lots of ketchup and diced onion) and I’m in heaven. Gabbie totally agrees (except she gets a soy dog – no nitrates), and when we had this meal recently, she ate more than I’ve ever seen her eat before. It really is that wonderful!

Friday: Ham and Mozzarella Panini with Cherry Tomato Salad

I go ahead and pile the salad on top of the sandwich and eat it that way.

And, now that I’ve made myself completely starving hungry, I’m off to lunch. Early. Expect another post later about the curse of the food photo (mostly because I’m procrastinating, and what better way to procrastinate than writing a few blog posts, right?).
