Time to plan our weekly menu! When it's this warm, I have a hard time getting motivated to cook, unfortunately, so it's actually more important than ever to have a PLAN. That way I don't have to think much, instead I can just look at the list and just.do.it.
Tonight we had Polenta Pizza (with Cheese for the dairy eaters, with Nutritional Yeast for those who don't eat Dairy, Steamed Broccoli, and Cherry Tomatoes
Monday: Embellished Shabbat Leftovers
Tuesday: ?? Still up in the air with our plans for Tuesday, so we'll just have to "wing it"
Wednesday: Scrambled eggs, French Fries, Whatever veggies need to be used up
Thursday: Baked Ziti (+ a wheat free, dairy free alternative for me), Salad, Balsamic vinegar Roasted Red/Yellow Peppers (I got a lot of peppers really cheap on Friday, and while I can wrap them well to make them last, they will need to be used up on Thursday)
Lunches will be completely totally random whatever we are in the mood to pull together. I'm counting on my kids to help me out here! (we had tuna and egg salad sandwiches and salad today, we'll probably have more sandwiches or rice and lentils most of the week...)
I am going to try out something new though - I'll make a huge batch of pancakes tonight that the kids can warm in the toaster oven for breakfast tomorrow and maybe Tuesday... oatmeal doesn't have lots of takers, lately, and some of my children have taken to eating very little for breakfast. Gotta fix that, because they do get hungry!
What do you feed your family when it's this hot?
