I’ve been super impressed by super organized people who have super suppers planned for the week on Sundays. It’s, well, super. I also heard that if you plan ahead you save money and make fewer trip to the grocery store which I am all for because grocery shopping with kids = un-super. Today I am going to try to be super and figure out what we are eating for the week, then go to the store and stock up. While I’m doing that, you can have some of my leftovers a.k.a….. the dinners that I served up last week.
Tuesday: Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Apples ….Note: I used honey mustard in place of dijon and white wine in place of chicken stock (because obviously I have wine, but no chicken stock)…. and Trader Joe’s Cornbread Stuffing
Wednesday: Vegetable Soup with a baguette… and leftovers
Note: For the soup I didn’t really follow a recipe. I chopped the veggies pictured (5-6 small red potatoes, 6 carrots, 3-4 parsnips, 4 stalks of celery, 2 cloves garlic, 1/2 an onion), added 28oz can of plum tomatoes, 4 cups of vegetable broth, and a bay leave and cooked on high for 4 hours in crock pot. Towards the end of the 4 hours I heated a bag of Trader Joe’s Multigrain Vegetable Blend (contains peas, corn, green beans etc.. and barley) in a skillet then added to the pot. My husband, of course, asked, “Where’s the meat?”… so luckily we had some leftovers from the night before.
Thursday:Spaghetti Bolognese and steamed broccoli
Friday:ORDER PIZZA (tomatoes count as a veggie, right?)
What superstar dinners are you serving up at your house this week? Anyone have a healthy-ish recipe that is something I can potentially make ahead and/or with one hand while I hold a baby in the other and ward off 2 crazy kids playing tag in the kitchen?
