  • Menu Plan Monday: Short (Cooking) Week

    We had a crazy weekend, between soccer, birthday parties and Hanukkah, so I’ve barely had a minute to think about this coming week’s menu. What I’m thinking about, though, is thinning out the freezer a little to make room for some cookies that I can freeze for a week or two before I give them away. But I actually don’t have to cook much at the end of the week because of scheduled events. With that in mind, here’s my (tentative) menu plan:

    Monday – Miso Chicken (using frozen chicken thighs), rice, steamed broccoli

    Tuesday – Sushi? I’m going to head to the Asian market that I’ve been meaning to check out to see what they carry, but I definitely want some kind of Japanese food this night.

    Wednesday – Tuna Pasta Salad using frozen broccoli (and I have a ton of cheap tuna and pasta in the pantry), Artisan Bread

    Thursday – Slow Cooker Roast, Artisan Bread, roasted butternut squash

    Friday – School event

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out

      I've never frozen cookies before! Do they come out just as tasty??

    2. Chief Family Officer says:

      @Annett – Yes! I love frozen cookies just as they are, actually (i.e., frozen), but they also thaw perfectly so they're perfect for baking ahead.
