Also, I sometimes prepare the crock pot the night before and stick it in the fridge so in the morning all I have to do is turn it on. Frozen ravioli or tortellini is really quick. Just boil some water, throw in the pasta and cook them until they float to top. Drain and add some sauce. Pair this with a bagged salad and dinner is ready faster than using the drive thru!! Take care!
Ditto on doing it the night before in your crockpot then just putting it back in the the morning and turning it on.. I try to make a double batch of our favorites one to eat that night and one to freeze for another night. some just a grilled cheese and soup are the quick and easy go to..

I hope your mom is doing well .. Hugs Michelle

DH didn't make the homemade sauce yesterday, so our menu is getting switched around a bit. Last night I made the jambalaya, tonight I will stick to the Wild Rice Soup, but tomorrow night will be the spaghetti since DH will make sauce tonight. Confused? Yeah, so am I...

Oookay, going to *try* and get back on track! Been completely off course for a little while; My mom's bad knee has been giving her trouble, so I became my lil sis's after-school runner, lol, so it's been lots of fast food & dinner at grandma's.

Last night - Meatloaf with potatoes & corn.
Tonight - Turkey soft tacos
Tomorrow - Bbq baked chicken w/ baked potatoes & a vegetable
Wed - fast food; last volleyball game of the season for my lil sis, so I'll be out supporting her.
Thurs - Tri-color rotini w/ parmesan crusted chicken

Rest of the week is up in the air. Gonna go grocery shopping tonight or tomorrow, so I'll work out the game plan then.

I made Seafood Lasagna on Friday and we had it as leftovers on Saturday as well. It was quite tasty...and DH asked for it to be put into our regular rotation. I think the spinach was a little overpowering so next time I won't use an entire package but otherwise, we have a winner!

Last night Hubby made Beef Stroganoff and it was supposed to go far enough to cover dinner tonight as well but we were low on pasta and thought there's plenty of the sauce left, there were only enough noodles to cover his lunch today. I thought about putting the sauce over potatoes but we don't have any of those either.

I'm thinking if all else fails...we'll just do grilled cheese sandwiches and cream of mushroom soup for dinner. It's not fancy but it'll do!!

So, yesterday we did Spaghetti with Meat Sauce and Garlic Bread because I did the Garlic Bread fresh as I have NO room in the freezer! Tonight I drove 20 minutes each way because my mom wanted Pepper Steak from a specific local place. The things I do for her!

Oh, and since we are doing Thanksgiving early I was worried I wouldn't get all my points for a free turkey at the grocery store. However, my favorite cashier there called on the manager and they set it up so I could! Even though I would have been a point short. Now THAT is customer service!

Wednesday: Shepherd's Pie, baked pears
Thursday: same again
Friday: Lazy pantry supper: canned gumbo soup, canned peaches, English muffins
Saturday: pasta with chicken, peas, and sun-dried tomato alfredo sauce, citrus salad
Sunday: something in the slow cooker; can't decide between fish chowder or beef cubes with tomatoes and Italian seasonings, with a side of kale with dried cranberries. Probably the beef, because I have a hunk o' roast in the freezer.
