This week was the last of our "lighter" schedule weeks for a while. Corey starts track on Monday which means early mornings and late nights again for a couple of months. Meal planning becomes a bit challenging with this schedule because by the time we get home from school, we are absolutely ravenous! I would love to be able to rely on crockpot meals during times like this, but we are gone for over 10 hours and crockpot items often burn. :( I am going to try a couple this week and hope for the best. When our schedule gets this tight, I do a lot of cooking on the weekends so that we can basically grab meals out of the fridge and heat them in the microwave as soon as we get home.
This past week we had a couple of unexpected schedule changes (including free tickets to Dixie Stampede for teachers - woo hoo!), so I am repeating some menu items from last week that we didn't get to. Here is this week's menu. For more menu ideas, go to orgjunkie.com.
Sunday - leftoversMonday - Slow Cooker Steak and Pasta Soup, Salad
Thursday - Eat out (technology night at my school and Corey has an academic team meet)
Friday - Spaghetti and Meatballs, Salad
