Doodle’s out of town visiting her paternal grandmother for the next two weeks, so it’s just me and the boys. For snacks, we’re going to get our fill of raw bananas, nuts, broccoli, and carrots, so she won’t have to watch us eat them in front of her when she gets back! (The boys don’t have any food allergies.)
And on to our dinner menu:
Sunday: Ham and lentil stew
Monday: Black bean burritos
Tuesday: Macaroni and cheese and green beans
Wednesday: Sushi and birthday cake and banana “ice cream” (X-man’s birthday)
Thursday: Kids will be spending the night at my mom’s – I’ll eat leftovers
Friday: Boca burgers, baked beans, carrots
Saturday: Chicken of some sort
These dinners are all quick to cook, because it’s HOT, and I don’t want to heat the house up any more than we have to. We will be taking time to make sushi for dinner on Wednesday, though, and I’ll be baking a cake (probably in the middle of the night, so it won’t be as hot) for my youngest’s 11th birthday.
I hope this plan works, because the heat is really getting to me this year – and it’s only June (barely)!
