Meal Planning (and Lunch!)

January 31st, 2016 at 11:49 pm

We ran into my friend N shopping with her daughter while we were in the store buying things for F's "hot lunch." (This is the lunch I send once a week with special things since the school's hot lunch is both expensive and, according to most of the kids, gross!).

Anyway, N asked what we were having for dinner this week. I had my phone with me, and I keep the meal plan in Notes, so I read it off to her.

Due to F's activities FOUR nights this week (soccer, basketball game, soccer and another basketball game) we have to have quick dinners on Monday through Thursday.

S - Chicken croquettes with salad
M - Vegetable/turkey stew from the freezer (thank you, crockpot) with toast
T - Pasta with parmesan and roasted veggies (red pepper, courgettes, red onion)
W - Fish, rice and broccoli with lemon sauce
T - Grilled cheese and tomato soup
F - Frittata with spinach and manchego

I am thinking of being a little better about planning my lunches (F's are all planned out). D brings a sandwich or leftovers pretty much every day.

Here is the loose lunch plan for this week for me:
M - leftover croquette with lettuce to wrap it in, banana
T - goat cheese on toast with carrots on the side, pear
W - leftover pasta and veggies, kiwi
T - avocado toast with radishes, apple
F - salad with turkey, pear, piece of cinnamon raisin bread

    Off topic, CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta's show on sport induced concussion was repeated with newer statistics on TV yesterday.
    Coincidentally, there is major research being conducted at our university as there was a generous grant awarded. Just in case you missed it...

    This has been an important topic of discussion in our family. DS #1 was involved in junior hockey and treasured every moment. I was a 'hockey mom' and watched the program change from 'skill ' base to 'win' based. Injuries not only got more and more common but more serious. My influence was receding and DS was being encouraged to spend summers at hockey camp as his determination pushed his skills forward. chose to let it go and play in a less demanding level/league.

    I offer this as it never occurred to me at the start that there was potential for either serious injury or emotional estrangement.

    apology, as you can see, laptop is playing nasty tricks and dropping sentences. An attempt to fix failed...
