I had to go into the office 4 out of the 5 days this week because my boss and colleagues were in town. I had dinner mostly made every night, though so my husband.didn’t have to worry about it.
Mexican take out
chicken taco Chili (crock pot)
Crockpot scalloped potatoes
Leftovers (yep, for out anniversary)
Broccoli and cauliflower
Butternut squash ravioli
Chipotle (I had a buy one get one free coupon)
Birthday party with friends
Well, it was my first week back at work and we were in PA last weekend, so no time to go grocery shopping. It was an “eat what we have” week which worked out fine and didn’t really make a dent in our pantry.
Sausage, potato and egg skillet
Taco casserole (from the freezers)
Tuna noodle casserole
Slow cooker quinoa chicken chili
I decided to try something different this week and it seems to have worked well! I picked up a ham and made it on Saturday, then used the leftovers in several additional meals throughout the week. I think I could do something similar with turkey, chicken, and a beef roast and would love to do that to make my life easier in the coming months as I go back to work on Monday.
SATURDAY – Roasted ham, cheesy cottage potatoes, broccoli
SUNDAY – leftovers
MONDAY – stuffed shells, salad, garlic bread
TUESDAY – ham, green beans and potatoes
WEDNESDAY – chicken cordon bleu casserole
THURSDAY – beef stirfry
FRIDAY and SATURDAY – with family
