This week my husband is traveling for work. When he is gone meal planning generally goes to hell. I take the kids out to eat, we buy pizza or we eat Cheetos for dinner (Okay...the last one isn't really true - the kids have to eat carrot with their Cheetos). I'm going to try to do better this time. I am sticking to kid friendly and easy to prepare meals.
Sunday - Leftover pork chops
Monday - Beef Stroganoff. The mushrooms can sometimes present a bit of a challenge, but the kids will generally eat this up.
Tuesday - Leftover Stroganoff
Wednesday - Slow cooker vegetable curry. My kids love this. They are rather adventurous eaters.
Thursday - Leftover curry
Friday - Chicken saltimbocca. This is chicken with sage and prosciutto. Hubby should be back by Friday so i'm planning something a little more grown up.
Saturday - talapia. My kids will inhale talapia.
Sunday - Chicken Corn Chowder. This is a personal favorite of mine. After a full week alone with the kids I think I deserve a little something special.
Well, there you have it. I'm keeping the faith that this plan is easy enough to make and to get my kids to eat that I will stick with it. Wish me luck!
