I realise this doesn’t qualify as Meal Plan Monday considering I’m posting it on a Tuesday, but the menu was prepared well in advance of yesterday.
It’s hard to believe we’re trying up the first half of 2019! Besides reading a tidy amount of books, I’m not too sure we’ve accomplished anything if significance.
Back to the posting on a Tuesday… Yesterday I packed 7 hours of work into 4.5 hours, then spent my afternoon in the chilly sunshine cheering on our 8th grader. As a runner, he qualified for the area meet (track and field) of the northern schools in our district. He managed to place third in his 200m finals. He ran his heart out in his other events and this mama couldn’t be prouder!
Unfortunately, by the time this mama got home she was on the verge of a migraine and hid in her bed for quite some time. This means we took a shortcut to meal prep… as in Kev picked up dinner on his way home.
Here is our illustrious menu:
- Deli chicken meal (yesterday)
- Oven-baked wings, fries, and fresh veggies
- Taco salad
- Beef dip sandwiches and salad
- Beef “poutine” and salad
- Veggie pasta skillet
Here’s to a few more short weeks of lunch-packing and sunny afternoons with a picnic in the park!
