What's For Dinner?
Last week's big win on the meal planning front--aside from my son baking a batch of brownies himself --was an audible from Thursday. It was raining on the day I wanted to pull out the grill for burgers, so I went with this meatloaf recipe instead. Best I've ever made. We had great sandwiches (sans condiments cause I'm a plain Jane) with the leftovers this weekend. And I finally got on some mac'n cheese, too.
Now this week--very excited for St. Patrick's Day! I love love love me some corned beef. I was thinking about making it more than once, but I think I'll save it for a big Saturday night feast, complete with shamrock decorations and a visit from leprechauns. And I'm hoping for leftovers for sandwiches Sunday!
Otherwise less fun:
Monday: Spinach quiche or frittata
Tuesday: Chicken n' salsa tacos (with leftover chicken for Wed)
Wednesday: Mexican Chicken Casserole, something like this
Thursday: Sausage, bean & kale soup with french bread
Friday: Pizza or fish fry
Saturday & Sunday: Corned beef n'cabbage with soda bread!
On a side note, the sun set on spring break 2012. It was a little bittersweet to send the older kids off to school this morning. And go figure, weather in the sixties all this week!
