It’s something of a crazy week here at the CFO household, so we’ll actually be out three of the next seven days. I’ve got a ton of pasta after all of the recent sales, so I want to make sure we’re having at least one, if not two, pasta dishes each week for the next couple months. Here’s what I’m thinking:
Monday – Chicken pasta salad, using chicken that was leftover from Friday’s dinner (I’ll put steamed broccoli and roasted tomatoes in the pasta salad, so it’s a complete meal).
Tuesday – Grilled pizza using artisan bread dough, and salad. I bought nitrate/nitrite-free pepperoni at Whole Foods yesterday, the only place I’ve been able to find such a product.
Wednesday – Dinner out.
Thursday – I’ll be alone with the boys this night, so I’m going to need something super easy. Plus, we won’t get home until dinner time, so I’m thinking it’s the perfect night for frozen chicken nuggets and fruit.
Saturday & Sunday – Dinner out.
The results of my attempts to mix things up for Alex’s school lunches have themselves been mixed. He says the meatloaf and pizza rolls I packed last week were too cold, but the leftover pizza was good. I’m going to keep experimenting, and we’ll see how things go.
