[saturday morning brunch]
Last week the boys caught an awful cold. Little Man is (I think) on the brink of getting well, Brother is in the middle of it, and I'm coming down with it. The humidifier has been going 24/7, and Benjamin and I have been splitting nursing duties. Nevertheless, meal making (and menu planning) must go on. Here's what I have planned for this week:
M-Sweet and Sour Chicken (because I didn't get to it last week)
T-This week I'm in charge of dessert for small group. I was planning on making these. I might have to see if someone else will cover for me, though. We'll see how I'm feeling.
W-Chicken Paprikash (a new recipe) and a veggie
Th-Tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches
F-French dip sandwiches and salad
Menu-ing tip: Plan on being flexible. Sometimes a meal doesn't work for the original evening planned, and it needs to be skipped altogether or rescheduled. Whether your sweetie spontaneously takes you out to eat, some friends invite you over for the evening, or the children are sick, it's much less stressful to rearrange your plan if you're prepared ahead of time to hold it loosely.
What are you making this week?
