The Odd Week

I admit to not having given my new week meal plan as much thought as I usually do. My weekend was full of getting my car fixed, going to Mrs. S's daughter's graduation party, recovering from said party ;), and preparing KK for her two-night fieldtrip to Camp Casey on Whidbey Island.

That means SS and I are going to be alone for dinner on Monday & Tuesday nights, and SS is not as near as an adventurous eater as her big sis, she would be happy if I fed her spaghetti and meatballs 24/7. She is not a fan of BBQ sauce or gravy or cheesy potatoes (how in the world did I possibly give birth to this child!?!!?). LOL

So, with that in mind I figured I'd eat weirdly and let her have cup o'noodles, cereal, and just generally be a bad mom!

Monday - I bought some collard greens and mustard greens. I need to negate the need my car has had for the past week to wheel into places like Baskin and Robbins and Dairy Queen! I think I'll go with Kickin' Collard Greens. I made this once before a long time ago and compared to some recipes the amount of bacon is fairly small.

Tuesday - Little League! SS and I will have burgers at the ball field. Easy-peasy and she'll be happy camper-ette!

Wednesday - KK will be home and I'll probably make her shake 'n bake pork chops since the field trip has the reputation of having really bad meals - I'm hopin' she might have missed her momma's cooking and have some appreciation!

Thursday - More Little League and piano lessons. It's getting very close to SS's recital (uh... Saturday!) so we don't want to miss. We'll have that twenty minute window to eat in-between. I really liked enjoyed the Crockpot Chop Suey from the week of the crockpot. It also makes excellent leftovers, which are going to even more important so KK has good low-fat alternatives for lunch now that school is out and she is home!

Friday - sigh......... I'm so bad, bad, bad. I STILL HAVE NOT MADE ANY OF HONEYB's SHRIMP DISHES! I swear Spicy Shrimp is gonna be made!

Saturday - SS's piano recital! YEA! She has worked so hard - she has even memorized one of the songs. It makes me proud. I think we'll have steak and baked potatoes in honor of her tonight. :)

Sunday - I think I will go a lookin' and see if there is something lounging in the freezer that really needs to be eaten (chili or stew come to mind that might really need to take a hike).
