August Meals

In a week and a half, I’m going back to work. This past weekend, I did some freezer cooking to prepare for returning to work. I’ve indicated which meals are going to be from the freezer. Having things in the freezer will be a huge help on days when 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 our dinner there instead of cooking. Also, planning things 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 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 leftovers.
