Last week, I cooked dinner Sunday through Thursday. I'm finding the most difficult part of cooking at home is meal planning. If I repeat an item too often, the kids sometimes decide they no longer like it. And now, with dance, I have to make sure that meals can quickly be prepared on nights when dance runs into our typical dinnertime.
Sunday - Swedish meatballs in a beef gravy with egg noodles and roasted broccoli
Monday - Cinnamon french toast with bacon
I like my bacon almost burnt, which means I usually end up burning it.
Tuesday - Fiesta salad (with chicken)
Wednesday - I had planned to make spaghetti squash and a meat sauce but the girls were super hungry after dance and I didn't have time. I usually cook up some regular spaghetti too. Two of the girls will eat both regular and the squash, one will not eat the squash. I ended up making just regular spaghetti and the meat sauce. I am not a fan of meat sauce, by the way, but the kids request it.
Thursday - Spaghetti squash with leftover sauce, veggie burgers and veggie fries.
Friday - Pizza
Saturday - Out to eat
