The plan

Posted by Jeanne on April 15, 2012

I made a menu plan – go me!  This is going to be the week when we attempt to cook more than we eat from the freezer.  I froze a ton of stuff in February and we’ve been eating mostly that, but it’s running out – and I really want to get back in the kitchen a bit!   You will notice that this menu plan takes MANY MANY items from Debbie’s book Parents Need to Eat Too.  This is not a coincidence.

This should get us through the next three weeks, when I get to start tackling another new thing – working!  Ack.

Chicken & artichoke pasta (freezer)

Pasta e fagioli (from Debbie’s book)

Beef & barley stew (freezer)

Italian sausage, Israeli couscous, and greens skillet

Brunswick stew (freezer)

Italian wedding soup (from Debbie’s book – crock pot)

Korean beef stew + rice (from Debbie’s book)

Balsamic beef stew (from Debbie’s book – crock pot)

Homemade pizza

Hainan chicken rice

Chicken cacciatore turnovers (from Debbie’s book)

Soup & sandwiches

Matzo ball soup (crock pot)

Erika and her 2.5 year old son Dylan are visiting on Thursday – looking forward to some good times with them!

One fish, two fish, red fish, new fish

Why, hello there.  I have a blog, do I?  I also now have a baby.

Her name is Eileen and she is four weeks old.  She has zero appreciation for cooking of any kind to date.

Lots more pictures – I’ve slowly been cooking again and hopefully can post something of substance again soon!

Baby shark!

Not horribly unhappy to be laying on her stomach.

E and her daddy – this was taken in the hospital still.

Baby shower cake!  Thanks to Sully Bakes for doing an amazing job.

Baby shower food – thanks to Carla for your amazing creativity with the menu, and to my sister and aunt for hosting.


More nursery… most items purchased at Ikea or on Craigslist.
