I’ve been trying a lot of new recipes lately, so I decided to go more low-key this week. The one exception is the Squash Crumble, because I’m always on the look out for good meatless meals to work into the rotation.
Monday: Cherry Tomato & Yellow Squash Crumble – our meatless meal for the week, and grape tomatoes are on sale at Publix
Tuesday: Pot Roast – Boneless Shoulder Roast is on sale at Publix, and I have a ton of carrots from the garden I need to use up before they go bad.
Wednesday: Beef, Macaroni, and Gravy – a two-fer meal using the leftover Pot Roast
Thursday: Spaghetti Squash Pie
Friday: Dopiaza Curry Chicken with Vegetables, Rice, and Naan
Saturday morning: Organize the RR cabinet – I hadn’t put any of the non-perishable groceries away from Friday night, so I decided to go ahead and work that out this morning…
- Chop about 3 onions for the Squash Crumble, the Pot Roast, and the Spaghetti Squash Pie.
- Chop the yellow squash for Monday’s crumble.
- Shred the Gruyere cheese for the crumble.
- Make the bread crumbs for the crumble (Nonni’s Garlic Parmesan Italian Toast + Vitamix)
- I might cook everything for the crumble in the skillet this night and just bake it on Monday – we’ll see how the day goes.
- Chop the carrots for the Pot Roast.
Monday: After work: Possibly saute the ingredients, definitely bake the Crumble (and have some time to play with Boog!)
Morning: Put the carrots, onions, celery, potatoes, meat into the crock pot with some water and sodium free beef boullion and other seasonings.
After work: Dish it up… I might get some nice rolls this weekend to go with this.
After work: Boil some pasta, put the leftover pot roast on it, along with some frozen corn.
<Side note: My daughter just got into a package of gum and was chewing it along with her goldfish – yikes!>
Late night: Cook the spaghetti squash and scrape into a large bowl.
After work: Cook the meat with some onions and finish assembling the spaghetti squash pie – it’s possible I’ll assemble it on Wednesday night – it depends on my energy level on Wednesday and how the week is going at work. If I think I’ll be late on Thursday, I’ll probably assemble on Wednesday. Bake it and spend some time with my daughter.
Late night: Chop an onion, bell pepper, and some chicken breast for Friday’s Indian dish. Since this is the only chicken breast dish this week, I wait to chop it until the night before.
Friday: After work: Cook the dish according to the direction on the sauce jar, heat up some Uncle Ben’s rice, and toast the naan.
