Happy Monday! I hope you had a fantastic weekend!
I spent Friday night at a local children’s theater production of Alice in Wonderland, and did some cleaning at home on Saturday, before taking my daughter out for a final round of door-to-door Girl Scout cookie selling. She lost steam pretty quickly, but we still managed to add 15 boxes to her total. Yesterday, I took her to a Girl Scouts-sponsored Chinese New Year event at an area world culture museum for children. One thing I did NOT do yesterday, is watch the Super Bowl. With apologies to any fans who might be reading, I don’t like football at all. My husband is a fan and watches quite a few games throughout the season, but is not a nut about it. One thing that I do love about the Super Bowl, is that it marks the end of football in our lives for the next six months or so.
This week is getting off to a somewhat hectic start for me. I typically work on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but the other part-time worker in my office asked me to swap my Thursday for her Monday – we share an office, so we can’t be there on the same days – and since she’s swapped several days for me in the past, I agreed. This will make this evening a bit chaotic, since my daugher has ballet from 5:00 to 6:00. We leave home for ballet at 4:30, and she gets off the bus at 4:15. (And I get home from work at 4:00.) She and I will have to change quickly, grab a snack, and head right to the ballet studio.
My altered work schedule also complicates matters a bit further because I usually go grocery shopping on Monday mornings, right after my daughter gets on the bus. Since I swore off Sunday grocery trips a while ago, we’re going to have to make do with what’s already in the fridge and cabinets, until I can go shopping on Wednesday. We’ve got plenty of food on-hand, but I don’t think I’ll be able to come up with anything too exciting out of it…
Another unusual thing about this week, is that my husband and daughter are heading to NJ for the weekend, so I only have to worry about my own meals Friday evening through Sunday morning. Woo-hoo!!
Here’s what’s on my dinner meal plan for this week:
- Monday: Cheese quesadillas with leftover roasted sweet potatoes
- Tuesday: Pasta with garlic and olive oil sauce, with frozen veggies
- Wednesday: Pork tenderloin with roasted broccoli
- Thursday: Quick & easy clean eating veggie chili
- Friday: Leftover chili
- Saturday: Grilled cheese!!
- Sunday: Slow-cooker pot roast
What’s for dinner at your house this week?
