Last week, I posted our tentative menu for the week on Facebook in hopes of getting some new ideas. It backfired, no one posted, and I got sick so instead of cooking all our meals, we went out to eat for 1/3 of them. I just didn't have it in me.
The plan was:
Caramelized Onion Quiche and Salad - this was bangin. So, so, so good. Your house will stink for days, but it's worth it.
Vegetable Soup with Pesto and Bread - this was not great. Not bad, but not a hit.
Chicken Scallopine with Lemon and Green Beans - didn't happen. This turned into "grilled" chicken thrown on top of lettuce with leftover soupy.
Pizza - easiest midweek meal ever. TJ's dough, tomato sauce, and shredded cheese.
Sausage Peppers and Onions - didn't happen. Used a gift card to go out for dinner, sick and all.
Herb Crusted Halibut and Ratatouille - didn't happen. Used a gift card to go out for dinner, sick and all.
Fried Chicken Drumsticks - didn't happen. Ate leftover bread with leftover marinara and shredded cheese.
When I'm sick I usually don't want to cook, but every once in a while I get the urge to bake something comforting, even with sinuses so congested I can't enjoy the food. It's similar to nesting, I guess. I could taste food just fine this week, and although I refused to make meals for three days in a row, I did somehow manage to squeeze in a batch of cookies.
So, this weekend, I really, really, really would LOVE to hear everyone's meal plans for the upcoming week, especially if you have kids! I'm always looking for new things to feed my family (or to pretend, with Korban, since it's just as likely to end up on the floor or in his hair or anywhere else that's not his mouth.) The only thing I have planned for this weekend is a roast chicken on Sunday. I made it last week, and it was the best meal I've ever had. So I'll try and post that with pics. Anyway, what are you eating this week? Tell me, tell me, in the comments!
