August Meals


In a week and a half, I’m going back to work.  During this past weekend, I did some freezer cooking in preparation of going back to work.  I’ve indicated which meals are going to be from the freezer.  Having things in the freezer is going to be a huge help on days that I’m super tired and don’t want to cook.  On those days, I would usually just stop at a fast food restaurant and grab us dinner there instead of cooking. Also having things planned out helps hubby when he needs to step up to the plate and prepare dinner.  He doesn’t mind preparing dinner if it is planned out and he is told exactly what he has to do.  On those nights, I tend to do something easy. 

If I plan a big meal that takes more time to prep and cook, I cook those on Saturday nights because that is when I have more time.

Week of August 2 – We are going away for the weekend so I need to only plan for 4 days and one day of left-overs.
