I hate being unemployed. It makes creating menus so much harder because I’ve had to cut back on my budget, plus my daughter is the picky eater, so I think I’ll be trying a lot of things on my own. She’s officially tired of spaghetti. Especially after having it for two days as lunch plus dinner.
One of the best investments from this year’s school shopping was a thermos soup tureen. We set aside a serving of dinner in this, nuke it in the morning (in a separate microwaveable container) and put it back in the Funtainer. She gets a hot lunch that she likes and a portion size that’s right. Because, apparently, you can have too much PB&J.
Sunday: Leftover pizza because it was too hot and I was too lazy to cook.
Monday: BBQ Raspberry Hoisin Chicken (may substitute chicken fingers and veggies) with Chinese Fried Rice
Tuesday: Tilapia & Summer Vegetable Packets
Wednesday: Soccer Night – Chicken in Basil Cream with steamed broccoli
Thursday: (Turkey) Bacon Cheddar Apple Frittata (this will be an experiment since my daughter isn’t always keen on egg based dishes)
