Not only have I missed writing down my menu plan in my book, I've missed blogging groups and blog events, I've missed taking pictures of the food I have managed to make, and last week even missed participating in Tyler Florence Fridays! And not because I didn't have anything to contribute, I just plain forgot until I was on my way to work and then it was too late.
October is a very busy month for me this year: not only am I going to be working my new job, as well as my usual job at our Taekwon-Do school, I've added in another job that I mentioned in my menu plan last week, working at the Farmer's Table as part of Saunder's Farm's yearly Haunting Season. So much fun! But tiring and limiting my time for cooking and baking. (It is so limited that a few minutes ago my husband went on a cookie raid and had to eat packaged cookies!)
Still, planning and working together, we have a plan for most of the week!
Sunday: Scrambled eggs and fresh bagels. This was supposed to be hamburgers but it turns out I didn't have a package in the freezer that I thought I had. Eggs make a great last minute substitute.
Monday: Stew with mashed potatoes. (If I'm smart, I will double this and freeze half.)
Tuesday: Pulled pork sandwiches. Maybe with salad.
Wednesday: Stir Fry. Cause I didn't make it the last time I planned to and still have the veggies to do it.
Thursday: Lasagna with garlic bread. The finest you can buy frozen and stick in the oven!
Friday: Something chicken. Not sure how yet, I have time between one job and the next to make something and I think I will wait and see how I feel.
Exciting week, isn't it?
Well, maybe not exciting, but we are still going to manage to eat together as a family for most of the week, and that is important for us.
