What a week it has been last week, the weekend sure was a nice one to recoup and re-group all the things that went on. It was beautiful in Central Florida, just perfect to spend lots of time outside and work in the yard. While I was working in the yard, pulling weeds and planting new flowers, I had lots of time to figure out what we will be eating this week, especially since we are facing our first week with all the allergies Teen#2 is now encountering (if you haven’t heard, be sure to check out HERE).
This week, we will have all Beef, just to get the Teen situated and get me prepped for the next few weeks. We decided to cook extra each night and take Saturday and cook Beef Meals just for the Teen so I can freeze them, meaning in the coming weeks when we have something like Pork, Fish or Chicken, I can just grab a single serving of a Beef dish and he still will have something delicious and home cooked and I don’t have to cook two different meals each day. At least, that’s the plan for now. hope it will work out.
I set off to Pinterest to find some of our meals this week, since I’m not a big Beef person (honestly, I’m not a big meat person at all, but beef every day is not my favorite thing, though for the love of my son I will make him Beef to keep him save). We do have to make a few modification, but I think after all these will work well this week.
Monday: Enchilada Beef Casserole with Salad
Tuesday: Cheeseburger Quesadilla with Salad
Wednesday: Hungarian Goulash with Pasta and Cucumber Salad
Thursday: Simple Chili in the Crockpot dinner with Baguette
Friday: Macaroni and Beef with Cheese Casserole and Salad
Saturday: Panera Bread Copycat French Onion Soup with Baquett
Sunday: Mom’s night off, dinner at Mimi’s house
Now you know what we are cooking in our kitchen and how we are handling the newly found but very severe food allergies my Teen has, would love to hear what you are dishing up and if you have a Beef dish, would love to see it so I can Pin it to my Son’s Pinterest Board for recipe ideas.
A few great recipe books we love and use often during our meal plan are the Fix it and Forget it books, they are amazing and always a great turnout, we also really enjoy this Meal Planner to keep us on focus, it’s great to keep it online and I can always check quickly if hubby wants to know what’s for dinner, but I’m also big paper gal, how about you?
Another item I would not want to miss in the kitchen is my Crockpot and the Crockpot Books what a time saver. As a busy mom these things sure are helpful to dish up a delicious home cooked dinner anytime of the week.
