Menu Plan - April 11, 2010: Mom's Away, Dad's Cooking

This is going to be an odd week at Casa Unfinished Mom. My siblings and I are planning several intense days of work at my Dad's house (an hour away from my home); so Hubby's going to be cooking several nights this week. He's not really a cook - grilled cheese and boil spaghetti noodles are more his speed. Whenever he's cooking, my biggest concern is, "Will there be a vegetable involved?" So in preparation for being away I spent most of Saturday prepping several different meals that he could heat and eat. Many of the meals I planned have veggies built into the main course or hidden amongst the many flavors, as in the sauce for spaghetti and Noodle Thing.

So here's what the plan is for the week:

B - Quick favorites (Pop-tarts, cereal)
D - Mac & Cheese and Hot Dogs with fruit

B - Baked Banana Oatmeal
D - Hamburgers, Roasted Potatoes, Cucumber slices

Tuesday - Hubby cooking dinner
B - Ham or Sausage Biscuits
D - Go To Chicken Casserole (currently in the freezer )

Wednesday - Hubby cooking all day
B - Whole Wheat Waffles
D - Spaghetti (w/ extra mushrooms and shredded zucchini snuck into the sauce)

Thursday - Hubby cooking in the morning
B - Whole Wheat Banana Muffins
D - Chicken and Dumplings

Friday - Hubby probably cooking dinner
B - Cereal
D - Noodle Thing (Pasta, spaghetti sauce & mozzarella baked in a casserole)

B - TBD - probably Muffins or Waffles (above)
D - TBD (the whole family are attending a concert across town; dinner is yet to be determined)

As always, I am so honored that you came to visit. I hope you found something to help make make your life a bit easier. If you're looking for more menu ideas, visit Organizing Junkie.

I do the same thing when I'm out of town. Why doesn't it occur to them to cook a veggie now and then? :)
