Saturday Morning Meal Planning

Hello dear ones –

Thing Number One: Comments are “on” on all of my posts.  And yet they show as “off.”  I don’t really know how to fix this, so I’ll do what I normally do with this blog – which sadly must remain at the bottom of my list of priorities – and that is, wait til it fixes itself.

Thing Number Two: Last night when I got home from work, the kids were tossing a football in the street with some neighborhood kids.  Then I called them in for frozen pizza for dinner (we fancy), and all of the neighborhood kids came too.  They sat on the picnic table on our back porch and listened to music and ate pizza – even Craig was out there.  There wasn’t enough for us to eat too, so we let it slide and pretended like we had something else for the adults.  The Prof and I sat inside, just on the other side of the wall, listening to them raucously sing along to “Havana ooh na na,” and he said to me “if there’s ever a good reason for the adults to go without dinner, it’s this.”  I do love this neighborhood – what I always wanted for my kids.  (We did not starve, of course, there were other things for us to have once everyone left.)

Thing Number Three: The children have voluminous amounts of play dates and birthday parties and stuff this weekend.  It’s exhausting to be so popular.  *theatrically places back of fingertips on forehead*  I’ve got some Easter pix to share, but it’ll probably be Fourth of July before I get there.  In the meantime, I wanted to check in, and post the week’s meals, before I launch into being Mom Chauffeur for the rest of the day.

The week’s meals:

Chicken Vesuvio.  Looks tasty – spring peas and potatoes.

Lasagna.  This is a recipe for the supposed world’s best lasagna, but let’s be real – I may just go jarred sauce + noodles + ricotta.

Chicken patties, macaroni and cheese, frozen veg

Sunshine lentil bowls, because I’m feeling a lack of inspiration and the lag liv family seems to love them.  Jack hates eggs, but we can leave those out of his.

Fish.  Whatever looks good at Costco.  Plus probably couscous and green beans.

Have a great weekend!
