Falling back. Ugh.
- Monday Semi-homemade takeout. Teriyaki chicken, green beans, dumplings and rice.
Fettuccine Alfredo, crispy shrimp and garlic bread on the side, plus salad with craisins and balsamic dressingI didn’t make this because NONE of us were in the mood. Leftover potato soup for me with added broccoli, sandwich and veggies for the boy, and Ramen for D. Major cop out.
- Wednesday Beef spring rolls with pickled veggies, avocado, and plenty of fresh herbs. Because it’s fresh and delicious, and it will maybe let me pretend that we’re still enjoying summer.
- Thursday Chicken in red wine sauce, smashed garlic potatoes, cheddar bay biscuits, and broccoli. Fun facts: the smashed potatoes are different than mashed because a) I always make them with skin on red potatoes, b) I barely smash them with a fork rather than use a potato masher, so c) they retain more of their original form and texture.
- Friday I’m in an evening meeting, so they are either fending for themselves or I’m making slow-cooker ravioli lasagna.
PS- I’ve had approximately 5 cups of coffee today, and while it doesn’t seem like it has worked yet, I’m sure that it will keep me up tonight til 2AM. For reference, I’m usually buzzed halfway through my second cup.
