This week's menu is:
Monday: I thought we would be gone to a baseball game so I didn't plan anything. Ex-wife changed her plans and we were home after all. We had pizzas. Not homemade, but frozen pizza that I threw extra stuff on. Not quite the same.
Tuesday: Meatloaf, roasted sweet potato fries, and sauteed cabbage.
Wednesday: Chicken spaghetti with whole wheat spaghetti and steamed broccoli.
Thursday: white wings (my version of a Texas restaurant favorite. Read about it here)
Friday: varsity football night so I'm not cooking
Saturday: I'm not sure I got that far!! I have stuff for fajitas so we could do that.
I have been buying lots of fruit since I've had an athlete in the house, hoping he was getting lots of good stuff with it. We've been going through bananas like there is no tomorrow. Suddenly, while he was gone for the weekend, I found myself with several of these:
What do you do when you have several of those?
My favorite way is this:
With lots of butter!
I used that same pan tonight to make meatloaf. I read about making little baby meat loaves from my friend Patti who has a fabulous blog: Peppermint Ph.D. Check out her version of baby meatloaves here:I used another Paula Deen recipe for my meat loaf.
What are you cooking now that school is back in session? Anyone have any great ideas for comfy winter menus? I'm all ears! I haven't experienced winter in so long I forgot what it's like. I'm actually looking forward to it. Ask me how I feel about it in January!!
