Meal Plan Monday – Week 3/11
My lovely parents came over on Saturday and stayed with both boys for a couple of hours while Aaron and I ran errands together. We were planning on going to get dirt and compost for my garden, but it was pouring down rain. Nobody want’s to load wet dirt into the back of their brand new mini-van, so instead Aaron went grocery shopping with me! How cool is that? …it’s the small things, I tell ya! I cooked both days this weekend, too, so the meal plan for this week actually started waayyy back on Saturday. Saturday seems like a long way away… it’s been a long afternoon around here.
Saturday: Crockpot Tortilla Soup
Sunday: …beware… this isn’t going to be pretty. Actually it was quite lovely, but it’s not for the feint of heart. Chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls, and Adam’s Mama’s Creamed Corn. OMG. It was so good. Certainly not health-food, but comfort food to the max. I ended up making the meal to go around Adam’s Mama’s Creamed Corn. Adam is Marni’s husband. His Mama made some damn fine creamed corn. I’ve never had better. It made my corn loving heart sing. If you’ve only had the crummy canned creamed corn before (hey-ooo that was some unintentional alliteration right there!) you must go forth and make some real creamed corn from scratch. So delicious.
Monday: Wraps that aren’t really wraps but more like tacos, but aren’t really like tacos. I’ve got a recipe coming for them later this week, so I’ll link this up to the recipe when I post it.
Tuesday: White pasta w/ broccoli
Wednesday: Turkey Burgers, tater-tots
Thursday: Grilled chicken, roasted red potatoes, and a veggie yet to be decided.
