How are we doing this morning? I am still full from the Super Bowl. Ugh.
I was rooting for Beyonce, as you may remember from Friday’s post. I think she won, although I wanted her to be wearing more clothing. When my girls asked why she was dressed like that, my husband said, “She’s going swimming afterward!” I about spit out my Dirty Shirley cocktail.
Even if you are not ready to think about food yet after yesterday afternoon, I am planning ahead for when you are. Here are some ideas for dinner this week:
Mr. Fresh Scratch made us a nice salad with pears and some salmon filets cooked on the stove top. I usually bake them, so I was like, “What are you doing?!” But they were delish.
However, a meal like that and Teensy-Weensy’s in tears. “I don’t like lettuce!!!! This ham-on is gwoss!” She ate pears for dinner, basically.
I used the leftover chicken from last Sunday’s roasted birdie for a hearty shepherd’s pie. I also looked through the crock of potatoes in the pantry and found a few varieties that had been bought for other dishes and somehow forgotten. I love using up leftover stuff. And this was the perfect hot meal for a rainy night. I based it off of a recipe from The Working Parents Cookbook: More Than 200 Recipes for Great Family Meals, which I am nearing the end of cooking through.
We have a busy week ahead of us, so we have a nacho night, pizza night, and even a picnic with sandwiches in Mr. Fresh Scratch’s classroom planned. How about you?
