Funny this thread popped up. I try to do Sunday-Thursday meal plan on Sunday mornings, so all we have to do is reheat or make rice, a veg, etc. This morning I had split pea soup in one crock pot, roasted veggie soup simmering on the stove, a mini pan of flourless brownies in the oven, apple chips prepped and ready to be baked after the brownies, and JUST putting some dough mix into the bread maker for homemade pizza crust when my oven fried out! OMG the coil in the bottom started on fire and essentially blew the thing up! It scared the day lights out of me. Needless to say our meal plan has changed a bit for this week, as both of us are too busy to go shopping together until next weekend. Thank goodness we have a plethora of crock pots, an electric skillet, and an outside grill with a side burner! (The house smells divine regardless!)
Modified meal plan for the week in no specific order:
apple chips are now apple sauce- which will be mixed with oatmeal for breakfast. Yum!!
Split pea soup with ham and kale
roasted tomato, pepper, eggplant, and leek soup with grilled sandwich or toast
spaghetti squash with homemade Greek yogurt Alfredo sauce, with grilled chicken and mushrooms
Friday will likely be take out pizza as we our watching our niece at their house.
