Closer to a normal meal-planning week – let’s see what we have in store:
Monday: Tuscan Vegetable Stew (Slow cooker recipe trying for the first time)
Tuesday: Roasted Vegetable Ciabatta
Thursday: Not Your Average Tamale Pie
Friday: Sausage Ragu over Creamy Polenta (another one I have a shortcut for)
-Organize the RR cabinet
-Start the beans soaking
-Hard-boil eggs (these are just for snacks, not meals)
-Chop carrots, zucchini, and green beans for Monday’s stew
Monday: Before work: Toss beans and carrots into the crock pot with some fresh herbs and hope for the best!
After work: Toss in the tomatoes, pasta, zucchini, and green beans and hope the weatherman is wrong so I can pick Boog up from her new “big girl class!” on the bike.
Late night: Prep and assemble the Ciabatta for Tuesday.
Tuesday: After work: Enjoy the Ciabatta with some veggies and hummus!
Late night: Prep the calzones. I plan to roast the squash and saute the kale. I might put together the calzones – I’m not sure. I’m using store-bought dough and frozed diced butternut squash as my shortcuts. We’ll see how it goes.
Wednesday: After work: Possibly assemble the calzones. Bake them and roast the poblano pepper for the Tamale Pie at the same time.
Thursday: After work: Assemble and bake the Tamale Pie
Friday: After work: Prep the Sausage Ragu over Creamy Polenta. I use premade Basil and Garlic Polenta as my shortcut.
Three meatless meals this week! Woohoo!
