This weekend was a pretty great one - but only because both of the girls left for the night Saturday. That wasn't the great part. The great part is, boyfriend had Saturday and Sunday off with me, and we got a ton done around the apartment. Dishes, laundry, and sweeping were all done. We finally got our basement a bunch more organized. We put boyfriend's dresser in Madi's room so she finally has space for all her clothes.
I made stew and used the crockpot for the first time. I made gluten-free biscuits for Madi. I pre-cooked and mashed some carrots and sweet potatoes for the girls.
And now I feel ready for this crazy week of being a parent of two kids.
So here's our meal plan for the week.
|[ Baked Spaghetti ]|
Monday: Leftover Beef and Barley stew that I made yesterday. I added in potatoes (who eats stew without potatoes?!) and put in almost double the broth to make up for it, but most of it still absorbed. I added almost 2 cups of water, and by the time we ate there was still very little liquid to it. But it was still good, and boyfriend was a huge fan. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly, except I had no vinegar. I'll definitely keep this recipe around.
Tuesday: Shepherd's Pie (gluten/dairy free for Madi!)
Wednesday: Baked spaghetti
Thursday: Breaded chicken and potatoes
Friday: Beef pies and fries
Sunday: Meatballs and rice
Gluten/Dairy/Soy-Free Snacks for Madi
Plain Rice Cakes
If I want to stay on plan, I need to pre-make the Shepherd's pie tonight, and make those muffins for Madi. Oh so busy.
