This was one of those weeks where I’m typing up what we did, after the fact, because I did not have my sh*% together enough to plan it in advance. I suppose we all have weeks like that – but it sure made life harder. As we move into spring sports season, I’m hoping to not have another one where I’m flying by the seat of my pants!
1 egg + 1/3 c egg whites scrambled with pico de gallo. Every day! Sometimes I added diced avocado or cheese. And a side of fruit.
Thank goodness for those single serving leftovers! I pulled out White Chicken Chili, Navy Bean Soup With Ham and Chicken Tortilla Soup for lunches, supplemented with veggies and dip or fruit on the side.
Monday – Crockpot/Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Pork Loin, brown rice and green beans.
Tuesday – Taco Tuesday! Not very Valentine’s Day celebratory of us, but a meal that everyone enjoys. BONUS: last time I did some bulk cooking, I had browned ground beef and frozen it in one pound bags. So I pulled one out, defrosted, added it to a pan with a can of diced tomatoes and chiles and 2 TB of Taco Seasoning Blend and simmered it all together for 10 minutes or so. Easy, quick dinner. Everyone built their own from crispy shells, flour tortillas, chips and all the usual taco toppings.
Wednesday – Repurposed Leftovers! I love a meal that does double duty. I turned the Crockpot/Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Pork Loin leftovers into Pork Fried Rice for a one pan dinner!
Thursday – here’s where the lack of planning caught up with me. The kids and spouse enjoyed the Arcadia Chick-Fil-A while I had some eggs and veggies…
Friday – here again….fail to plan, plan to fail? Well, my children didn’t think so. Because they enjoyed pizza that came to the door. Yes. Again. If you’re counting, I’m pretty sure it’s the 4th Friday in a row. The spouse and I went out for dinner. I had a fantastic chopped salad at Cowboy Ciao. If you’re local to the Phoenix/Scottsdale area and haven’t had this salad, well, why are you still reading, get over there and have it. NOW. It’s that good.
Saturday – No Boil Chicken Sausage and Pasta Casserole, salad and a veggie tray.
Sunday – Black Bean, White Bean and Beef Taco Chili, cornbread and a veggie tray.
