Menu planning week of July 26

Last Tuesday, I had a stomach virus, so I didn’t cook anything. So we didn’t have the almost famous chicken sandwiches. I am going to save the meal for the first week of August.

Since I’m returning to work in two weeks, I need to start planning our meals for certain days of the week so that hubby can help with the meal. Sometimes I will prepare the meal, and all he has to do is cook it. Sometimes I cook it in the crock pot, and he might have to do the side dishes or bread. It all depends on what we are going to have for supper. I assume since I will get home earlier in the day, it will be easier for me to get the meal on the table without rushing like I have been for the past two years. (For those who don’t know, I’m an Intervention Specialist (special education teacher) during the day and the primary caretaker in the evenings. My hubby is the primary caretaker during the day and a pizza delivery person in the evenings. He leaves for work soon after I come home. We eat supper before he goes to work.)

Dinners

Monday – pancakes or waffles, bacon or sausage, fresh fruit

Tuesday – 50’s Prime Time Meatloaf (in the freezer), mashed potatoes, pasta Roni, or mac and cheese, veggies

Wednesday – Skyline chili made in the crock pot. The chili will be served over spaghetti. I will use the extra spaghetti on Friday.

Thursday – chili dogs, chips, fresh veggies

Friday – spaghetti with meatballs (in the freezer), Italian bread sticks, salad, applesauce

Saturday – left-overs
