Too often 5 pm rolls around and I don't have an idea of what to make. I want to eventually have a master list of ideas for each season, and this will be the springboard.
Footnote: I'm married to an Irish man who doesn't consider a meal without meat to be a meal. And he considers potatoes and corn to be vegetables, not starches. I also have three sons under the age of 7, so while we avoid processed food and make most of our stuff from scratch, I'm all about ease and low-maintenance meals.
So here we go:
S: Chicken enchiladas (Bought a rotisserie chicken for S & S dinners--yummy & easy)
S: Chickenchilious with lime chips, limes and cilantro. Leftovers one night and as lunch most of the week as well.
M: Hamburgers/Italian sausage with pasta salad (L.O from lunch bbq w/ Brian's staff)
T: Pizza take-out
T: Lasagna (made double batch and froze one) with salad and good bread (also lunch LO)
F: Pork tenderloin with mashed potatoes and baby peas.
S: Honey-Mustard Salmon with green beans and tomato/cucumber salad (Bri had left-over pork)
S- Mostaccioli w/ Meatballs
M- Chili with Cornbread
T- Harvest Pie
W- Leftover Harvest Pie (Hamburgers for the boys, since they've been good sports M&T)
T- Pork chops with baked potatoes
F- Pizza with salad and homemade bread sticks
Sept. 27- Oct. 2
S- Ribs with corn on the cob and potato salad and fresh tomato slices.
M-Lasagna (already in freezer)
T- Chicken w/ brown rice and carrots
Th- VP DEBATES: Fajitas or Taco Bar with Spanish rice and Sangria??
F- Pizza night
S- Fish sticks and veggies/ Mom and Dad at date night
Sunday- Pork Tenderloin
