I’m finally getting around to updating my blog after baby Maryssa was born 2 1/2 weeks ago! She was not entirely happy with the being born process…
However, with me on light duty and Geoff handling things like cooking dinners most nights, I’ve really needed to get my menu planning mojo back into high gear. Usually I just sketch out a list of 4-5 dinners and make what I feel like making or what needs to be used up from the fridge first, but telling Geoff there are pork chops in the fridge doesn’t help him. He wants to know how to cook them, with what spices, and side dishes too. So I’m trying to be a little more specific for his benefit.
So here’s what we’re cooking this week:
Monday – Spinach Quiche – I like this recipe from Food.com. I may have Geoff throw in some bratwurst slices that we had left over from last night’s dinner.
Tuesday – Tortilla soup
Wednesday – Something easy – probably pasta with sauce and a side of sauteed squash. We’re going to be shooting fireworks with the neighbors, so we’ll need something quick that we can eat early and then will have snacks during the fireworks.
Thursday – Pork stir fry – Geoff said he wanted to try his hand at concocting his own recipe for a basic stir fry, so I got some pork chops for him to experiment with.
Friday – either Leftovers or quick enchiladas, depending on what we have left in the fridge.
Lunches are usually leftovers or fend for yourself around here. Geoff is going back to work on Thursday so I’ll need to start packing him a lunch again.
