Menu Plan | October 25

I’ve been back menu planning the past couple of weeks.  It’s still a pain to be cooking the night before, so that things are easy when I get home from work. But it beets trying to get dinner on the table with two hungry boys clinging to me in the kitchen.  Here’s what’s on the menu for this week:

Sunday:  Roast chicken marinated in indian spices, creamed peas and onions, beet salad
Monday: Broiled salmon on kale, smashed potatoes and sliced cucumber
Tuesday: Croque Monsieur and green salad
Wednesday: Corn Chowder and green salad
Thursday:  edamame spread, miso soup, and still looking for a third element
Friday: Homemade pizza

We’ve been trying to simplify our meals, to make things easier and faster.  We tried two weeks of plain food, i.e. baked chicken with steamed vegetables – no sauce/spices, etc.  Ich. It was terrible.  No one wanted to eat the stuff, no one wanted the left overs.  Now we’re trying either no recipes, but still spices (even if it’s only garlic) or very simple recipes.

  1. Simplifying meals – I’m reminded of the time I tried to simplify the meals of my family’s pet cat. No sauces, no spices…Ich, it was terrible. The cat wouldn’t eat it.
    On Day 2 the cat still wouldn’t eat it; ditto for Day 3, Day 4, etc. But by the end of the week the cat had come around to my way of thinking.
    All to say…I think you’re on the right track. Hang in there.
