It was so great to have a menu plan last week. I don’t know why I continue to trick myself into thinking that it’s easier not to take the time to plan meals because every evening that I don’t makes me cranky. Menu plans enable me to have meals on tap that I get to look forward to and we eat a lot earlier because I’m not procrastinating on coming up with a last minute plan.
This week’s menu, unintentionally, is very comfort food heavy. It strikes me as a little funny. It’s April, the weather is finally nice and I have lots more time to cook than I usually do. But instead of making springtime recipes that require effort, I’m interested in comforting, familiar, simple meals. I think we can all read between the lines on that one. Also, parenting all day in addition to working to provide my students with remote learning is kind of exhausting.
This week’s plan:
Easy Chana Masala from Minimalist Baker, over white rice (2 nights)
Cheesy Pizza Pinwheels from The Kitchn
Vegetable Pot Pie Skillet With Cheddar Biscuit Topping from Budget Bytes
baked ziti with sausage
