Leave a comment

Went to the Thai Temple today, so it was like an all Thai food weekend!  So much leftover for tonight’s dinner.  But on to the week’s menu (Thai-free), which is the plan pending any major upheaval from Isaac!  The rain has just started.


Monday: Sausage Ragu over Creamy Polenta (carry-over from last week, because we had leftovers on Friday)

Tuesday: Vegetarian Mexican Lasagna

Wednesday: Chicken Schwarma with pita chips and hummus

Thursday: Layered Bruschetta Salad

Friday: Sweet Caramelized Onion Chicken Burgers and Sweet Potato Fries (you can always tell a trip to Costco has happened because I undoubtedly end up with some pre-made dinner items.  Darn you tasty samples!)



  • Organize the RR cabinet
  • Dice onions (3 meals) and bell pepper (only the Schwarma)
  • Dice chicken (3 meals)

MondayAfter work: Prep the Sausage Ragu over the premade polenta.

Late night: Chop everything for the Mexican lasagna and mix for Tuesday.

Tuesday: Morning:  Put the ingredients in the crock pot.

After work: Top with some cheese – it doesn’t have to be all fancy and “melted” 🙂

WednesdayAfter work: Cook chicken, onion, and bell pepper in sofrito sauce.  Serve on a pita with tzatziki, romaine, and cucumber.

Late night: Marinate chicken breast in some Italian dressing.

ThursdayAfter work:  Cook chicken breast and assemble the salad.

Friday: After work: Throw the fries in the oven and pan sear the burgers.

I'm a mom that works outside the house trying to create home cooked meals for my little family of three. My husband is a small business owner, and my daughter turned 2 in February.
