Monday Meal Planning 2.27.12
Well, wait, I do know a little of the reason I didn't do a plan. I have lost my will to cook a little bit. My kids, as adorable as they are, absolutely kill my will to cook by not eating anything. Seriously, anything. Sophie will eat cheese and carbs, and Gabbie will eat fruit and sugar. Not only do these two things not overlap, but they're not exactly what I want them to be eating all the time. I mean, the fruit isn't bad, but some vegetables and meat would be good too.
I'm hoping to win them over tonight with a pot roast. Who doesn't love pot roast? (Don't answer that.) I'm also making room in my freezer this week by making many of our meals out of things I've frozen (meat, pre-formed chicken pillows, bolognese, chicken, pizza dough). I'm hoping that makes this week much easier in terms of the time it takes to make the meals my kids refuse to eat. Ahem.
On to the plan!
Monday: Three packet pot roast, with carrots, potatoes, and celery
Tuesday: Chicken pillows, broccoli, rice pilaf
Wednesday: Cheese ravioli with bolognese, salad, garlic bread
Thursday: Chicken spaghetti, broccoli, fruit
Friday: Homemade pizza (like usual), salad, fruit
Saturday: Tomato, basil, parmesan soup, 7 layer salad
Sunday: (brunch) Most likely quiche of some sort, and fruit salad
