Meal Plan Monday

The Hubby and I went to a wedding yesterday.  The kids had a sitter, and we had a blast hanging out, just the two of us.  However, that did mean that the kids were up until 10 pm.  And because it was hot, neither of them really took a nap Sunday.  And today was even hotter.  So they were crabby.  So we were crabby.  Yesterday was really a lot of fun.  Was today worth it?  Hard to say.  Will we do it again in the future?  Probably.  The accounting counts for fairly little three months after the last exhausted disaster of a day.  Sometimes you just need a night out.  Seriously.

Monday- Coleslaw and a veggie tray for the Memorial Day BBQ.

Tuesday- Youth group night.  Burgers, coleslaw, grilled potatoes. 

Wednesday- Pasta with roasted red pepper cream sauce.  (I will not use a recipe or measure.  Sauteed onions and garlic plus a jar of roasted red peppers plus heavy cream plus parmesan.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Substituted "a jar of anything that's tasty on its own and possibly vaguely Italian" for the red peppers, and you've got yourself a pantry staple winner.  Yes, heavy cream counts as a pantry staple in this house.  If there's no coffee or no cream to go in it, that's an emergency on par with our toilet breaking while we're away at a Memorial Day BBQ and pouring gallons of water down our laundry chute.  Boo Monday.

Thursday-Lentils and rice with Indian spice.

Friday- Tacos.  The Hubby loves him some tacos.
