Monday- Meatless Monday- Veggie stir fry with tofu over rice- Happy New Year of the Ox!
Tuesday- Chili and cornbread (I11 can have chicken soup due to oral surgery earlier in the day)
Wednesday- Couscous with chicken and veggies (We use chicken sparingly- just to add flavor)
Thursday- Kniep (a family recipe- basically broth with egg dumplings in it)
Friday- Homemade pizza
By planning ahead I know what I need to get out to thaw or other prep work I need to do in advance. For example, I put beans on to soak this morning before I left for work so I can par cook them tonight ready for the crockpot for chili tomorrow. I can also plan to use leftovers later in the week as a new incarnation.
My sanity is in much firmer a grasp since we started planning ahead. It also saves me having to answer 'WHAT'S FOR DINNER?' 4 times each day (one for V and one for each child)!
