Life Made Delicious: Family Day food
We’re having one of those rare weekends where I actually feel like we’ve gotten a lot accomplished around the house, I’ve managed to get some time to myself to see friends and go to yoga, and the kids seem mostly entertained. And the best part is, there’s still another day of it left. Hurrah for the Family Day holiday!
I’m facing a week of solo parenting starting tomorrow night, so one of the things I made sure I did today was clear out the fridge and fill it up again. The remnants of some bacon and kale quickly turned into a lentil soup, which will make a good lunch for tomorrow, with leftovers for brown-bagging. Mark decided to make a giant meat pie for dinner tonight, so we’ve also got some leftovers put away from that. And I’m going to make the solo weeknights easier by cooking a shepherd’s pie tomorrow night that should serve for Tuesday’s and possibly Wednesday’s dinner.
The fridge is stocked and I’m ready for the week. How many days until they eat it all? (With Mark away, I might be lucky and make it all the way until Friday. Maybe.)
Do you batch cook for the week? I’ve found some recipes on the Life Made Delicious website that look great for long weekend cooking (like these Lemon Turkey Pot Pies) or for batch cooking ahead of time (like this Big-Batch Calabacita Chicken Stew Recipe). The advanced search feature is great since you can plug in which main ingredient you want to use, and what meal it’s for, and away you go.
