Her choices were mac-and-cheese, baked potato, fruit dinner (my husband’s specialty and the kids’ fave….he makes the best faces out of the fruit), chili verde, egg burritos and leftovers.
A few notes about her menu: I made a super easy stove-top macaroni (home-made, not a boxed variety), very similar to the one in this book. I added ground beef with taco seasoning to the baked potatoes, and we always have some kind of protein (usually sliced deli turkey or ham) with the fruit dinners.
My husband was out of town the week following her menu, so dinners were super easy and required minimal prep on my part: pot roast, chicken tacos, and leftovers from the weekend.
So, back to a more normal routine this week:
Monday: Out with family
Thursday: Stuffed Peppers (a version of this recipe)
Friday: something on the grill
