Getting prepared for this work week was quite a task, to say the least. Actually, if I’m being honest, I’m not ready. I have my meals planned. I have my grocery list put together. That’s the extend of it.
Generally speaking, I like to have the grocery shopping done by the end of the weekend so we are ready to roll with after work meals. Since I haven’t gotten that far yet I will use my lunch hour at work today to run and get groceries and keep my fingers grossed that the rest of the pieces for the week fall into place.
Here’s what’s on the menu for the next few nights:
Pot roast, mashed garlic potatoes, veggies (Crock Pot Dinner)
Bacon wrapped chicken breast, brown rice, veggie
Runza casserole, salad (a Runza is a cabbage burger, for those who don’t know)
Baked chicken breast, rice, salad
Last weekend I made a breakfast casserole for breakfast and had leftovers for quick grab and go breakfasts through the week.
Brown 1 lb sausage with 1 clove minced garlic
Chop 1/2 a red bell pepper, and 1/2 an onion
Beat 8 eggs with a splash of milk, 1 tsp parsley, salt & pepper per preference
Evenly distribute sausage, red pepper and onion in 9×11 casserole dish
Pour eggs on top
Top with cheese (I was out of shredded cheese so I tore up thin slices of velveeta – so creamy and delicious)
Bake in 375 degree oven until the eggs are firm
Not only was this a quick and easy breakfast for the weekend but it was delicious all week long, alongside some fresh fruit.
Fill me in, how was your weekend?? Do anything special, exciting and/or fun??
