Menu Plan Monday, and a plea for help

Her's what's on tap:
  • Korean Meatballs -- from Cooking light, if you like Korean bbq flavors, this one does them nicely in a mealball flavor.  Everyone likes these, and we have them with pickled cucumbers -- and bountiful baskets gave us a bunch of those last time)
  • Burritos -- hamburger, refried beans, and some of that pre-done burrito packet mix from the seasoning isle, throw it in a tortilla with some cheese, microwave for like 5 minutes. 
  • Pesto Chicken Pizza  -- I just mix a can of Costco chicken with 2 or 3 heaping tablespoons of pre-prepared pesto, and then I do about 4 T of it on the crust and smooth it all out, add the chicken top with cheese and pinenuts and basil, if I have it on hand... sometimes tomatoes too...
  • Lady's Cheesey Mac (I usually make Chuck's mac and cheese, but I don't have any cottage cheese)-- homemade mac and cheese.  If you want the recipe, email me.  I'll make the full recipe of this, but I will freeze 1/2 of it for another day and put it with a big salad.  Yum.

So, my begging for help is family friendly meals that are easy to prepare.  Drew is only one home one night this week, and I need to make stuff that my kids will enjoy that get on with a minimal fuss.  So, do you have standbys that you go to?  I think we may be doing some breakfasts for dinner, and things like that.  I know there's lots of ideas, but lately I'm just out of them.  And Drew won't be home til' around Thanksgiving (much).

Have a great week!


  1. The only "easy" idea I have, is to renew your love of your crock pot. Throw some chicken in there with a can of salsa, easy chicken tacos. Some hamburger and a few kinds of beans with a can of tomato sauce, you've got chili.

    And we are huge fans of breakfast for dinner these days. Is a waffle ever a bad idea?

    Missing you...

  2. Here is a link for crockpot mac and cheese wich is divine. My kids loved it and it is so easy.
