Figuring it out, one crazy day at a time.

Take it easy November 15, 2009

Things are too complicated right now. I work evenings, which leaves Jake in charge of dinner, bath and the pre-bed routine. Adeline isn’t much on nighttime and tends to get cranky and needy as it starts getting dark, and Jake hasn’t mastered the art of cooking with a kiddo hanging onto his leg. Which means that dinner often just doesn’t really happen. The kid gets fed, but Jake and I usually scrounge.

So I’m thinking-can I make a freeze a weeks worth of meals on Sunday? Is that going to be just awful? Or will the day of cooking not be so bad when I’m eating real food on a Tuesday night instead of Cheezits and ice cream?

So the plan is make seven meals, freeze them, and eat like royalty all next week.

Jake’ll be gone all day tomorrow so I’m on my own for the shopping and the cooking parts. Should be fun!

Meal 1: Lasagna (beef)
Meal 2: Chicken Enchiladas
Meal 3: Beef Stew in the crockpot
Meal 4: Spaghetti sauce w/ turkey meatballs (turkey)
Meal 5: Spanish Chicken and Rice
Meal 6: Ratatouille
Meal 7: Black Bean Soup
