This weekend 'we' attempted a few sensible solutions for our 'football' time issue.
I made banana bread and zucchini bread. I know stand back, gasp and grab your chest. Let a small 'what?' escape your lips, I REALLY did bake bread. I found the 'easy' recipes from food-network.com and whipped em' up. Who knew, it was not too bad and my kids really enjoyed helping.
Pyper would stand next too the bowl saying 'I kook. I kook.' Then she would turn on the beater and let it lie on the table. *Even Lance said how good they were. I informed him that he should just stop right there, before he screwed up the compliment. He smiled and shoved his face full of bread. Normally, I burn anything I cook or forget an ingredient and most of my stuff turns out suckie. We are taking small strides and getting our kids involved. Plus, it put my almost rotten bananas to good use.
Lance got on board with the idea of fixing some items a head of time.
So here we go, our first week of trying to have a few meals ready.
1) Salisbury steak and mashed potatoes. Burgers are already grilled and covered in the mushroom sauce, the potatoes are already mashed. Just heat and eat. We will have this tonight.
2) Taco meat. Shredded cheese, salsa. Wednesday we will have tacos or any version of taco meat you would like. I prefer to have a taco salad.
3) Pig-'n'-a-Blanket. Hotdogs, biscuits, green beans. *I hate hot-dogs, so I will eat something left over or a quick sandwich. We will have these on Thursday.
Friday is a free day and we will put our pointer finger to good use and call for delivery.
Here's to praying this week is better than last!
Any quick meals you can recommend would be highly welcome.....we are winging it.
