I wish this was my meal plan smile.gif.

I'm struggling this week. I think tonight will be pork chops (but not sure of cooking technique), wild rice from a box, and braised kale. Then another night will be baked potatoes with leftover kale and some bacon. Black bean burritos with zucchini another day. Something involving ground turkey and carrots/rutabaga later in the week. Sigh. Four more weeks and I might like food again. I daydream about liking food.

Left overs again here. Probably tomorrow too, there's a lot since he didn't eat his lunch a time or two, and I didn't eat a few nights.

I made shepherd's pie again tonight. I'm clearly not feeling very inspired lately. It's a good thing we don't mind having the same old things too much. If I can remember to put kidney beans to soak tonight, we'll have Cincinnati chili tomorrow - I've been craving that for the last few days.

Home made tomato rice soup and cheesy rolls to dip. My 19 month old daughter likes to roll up the rolls. She feels important!

Never roasted the potatoes, but used up some stray stuff in the fridge. Just don't feel like making chicken tonight, and it's not completely defrosted anyway - downside of not having a microwave. I really don't feel like cooking at all!! Maybe I can throw together a Thai soup.

OK, bucked up and went into the kitchen. Put rice in the rice cooker & will serve that with tuna and Japanese "sprinkles"

http://www.japanesekitchen.co.uk/furikake_seasoning.html

 

Plus I threw together Thai soup: red curry paste, a box of veg broth, can of coconut milk, splash of fish sauce, teaspoon of sugar, juice of half a lime and some fresh and frozen vegetables. I keep these ingredients on hand pretty much all the time because I like this soup so much. I have also started keeping a bag of frozen mixed veggies in the freezer and add that to all of my soups and stews. Works great in crockpot stuff and no chopping!

Haven't been here in a while. Sick kids and sick momma make for a boring and ever-repeating meal plan. ;-) 

But we strive to get back on track.

 

Yesterday we had whole wheat pasta with sauce bolognese and peas and the leftovers today for lunch. For dinner the kids had muesli and cut up fruits while I decided to empty the vegetable drawer of the fridge and create a little stir-fry out of mushrooms and bell pepper on top of some quinoa. 

 

Other hits during the last weeks included creamed rice/creamed semolina pudding with stewed apples and pears, a simple vegetable casserole with just some cream and cheese on top (the kids *loved* and have been asking me to cook it again ever since!), elbow pasta with cheese and broccoli, pan-fried tilapia filets and shrimps with rice and peas, fried eggs with creamed spinach and mashed potatoes, squash soup, a kind of and omelette-rolll filled with cream cheese and ham, homemade pizza (of course!), Daddy's pancakes (which are more similar to crêpe, the pancakes we're making here in Germany) and my homemade bread with lunchmeat ham or cheese. They sure know what's good. ;-) 

 

 

Now I am off to write a shopping list for my husband tomorrow. Ever since I started working Saturdays, weekly grocery trips have been a hassle and in the end the list I left him on Saturdays was still quite long. So we decided that he's doing it all now and I just get some bread or milk or bananas or whatever we run out of during the week. Works great for us!

Yeah for hubby shopping! That can be such a blessing to a busy mom.

We have had left overs all week. Tonight I'm doing something easy, but not sure what yet.

Wild rice chicken casserole, if the wild rice ever cooks. Maybe I put in too much water? It had 4x instead of 2x on the box. Hmm

Husband is working a night shift today, so I'm thinking about making bean and kale pasta. He's a little worn out on it, but I love it and I have some kale I need to eat up, so tonight would be the perfect night to make it. Just need to get the beans soaking soon...
