so what's been cooking, plan b edition


Monthly prearranged menu plans are scrapped, some easy to fix substitute plan ingredients purchased. I don't recall what we did Fri night, the day of the fall, but here's what we have served:

Sat-homemade Italian meatballs in homemade marinara over spaghetti

Sun-braised pork chops in cream mush/homemade beef stock with chopped onion sauce ocer egg noodles, french green beans
Mon-oven baked Cod fillets with lemon juice and tarragon, oven roasted rosemary garlic fingerling potatoes, fzn peas

tonight; garlic n herb seasoned chicken drums (extra planned overs), "baked" potatoes, fzn broccoli florettes.

  we are planning ahead such as coooking extra tonight for tomorrow, surgery day, and relying more heavily than usual on the crock pots. Sound nutrition, along with the budget are kept in mind.

Good wishes on the surgery and a quick recovery. I'm sure that if pressed, your children could manage to feed themselves/each other without too many problems! So take it easy and rest. You'll be back at it soon enough.
