Another week, another challenge of getting food on the table. Between my work schedule, daycare and DH’s work schedule I have little time. I can’t get to the supermarket until Wednesday night. So we are relying on what’s around for a few days. The cheese steaks are super easy. The meat comes pre-sliced and frozen. Look for packs that say 100%. It can be purchased fresh and is labeled shaved beef.
A short cut this week is to cook double the amount of rice and veggies on Thursday and eat them with dinner Friday. Not that they are so hard to make but if you are cooking already why not reheat them the next day?
I’m test driving fish on the twins as well. This is going to be interesting. They have had tastes of fish off my plate before but this is a first as a meal. DH hates fish so he will eat the Orange Chicken twice.
Monday- Cheese steak sandwiches (lots of sautéed mushrooms, peppers and onions!)
Tuesday- Ravioli with homemade meat sauce (frozen, dinner will be on the table in 30)
Wednesday- Chinese take out, the kids love Lo Mein!
Thursday- Orange Chicken, Rice, Veggies (make double the amount of sides)
Friday- Baked Lemon White Fish (garlic, white wine, lemon butter, bread crumbs)
Serve with sides made on Thursday
Saturday- Brinner (busy weekend, quick and easy)
Sunday- We will be home late, dinner may be a snack, leftovers, or something out of the freezer
