Fighting the urge to get take out or go out to eat tonight. The reason I don't want to cook is because I am tired and cranky. I'll still be tired and cranky if we go out.. and will have spent money I didn't want to spend. So.. off I go to the kitchen.

Changed dinner tonight to homemade baked macaroni and cheese with salad. We took longer running errands than I had anticipated and it takes too much time to make the breakfast casserole. We will have that later on.

Had a 1/4 cup of leftover grilled onions and peppers, so I added some canellini beans, vinegar&olive oil to marinate them, yum.

Just made some pizza dough - it's rising now. I have leftover meatballs and sauce along with some mozzarella cheese, so we're having homemade pizza for dinner.

So, my schedule for the next week has really changes from normal. School starts and I will actually be home every night over at least the next week. So I had to come up with MORE meals AND get them to fit on the days needed. Mom will still be working late during the week itself (not as late on weekends) and I will be cooking for myself Tuesday and Wednesday before I even go to class (so more like a late lunch).

So, this is what I came up with:

Saturday: Healthy, Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup and Crackers

Sunday: Eggs, Chicken Sausage, and Toast

Monday: Baked Falafal Pita Sandwich and Salad

Tuesday (class): Leftovers or something from the freezer

Wednesday (class): Baked Potato and Salad

Thursday: Veggie Tikka Masala (Spinach, Squash, Mushrooms, Onion, and Bell Pepper), Rice, and Pita

Friday: Leftover Tikka Masala, Rice, and Pita (this stuff makes a huge batch)

Saturday: Steak, Baked Potato, Salad

Sunday: Chicken Tacos (Fajitas) and Fiesta Lime Rice

Then Monday is the next grocery day! This weeks bill is going to be on the higher end I think, even though I don't need meat. Lots of fresh veggies will be needed though!

I keep putting off going to the grocery store! Somehow I've managed to put together meals with what's available in the pantry and freezer. I *think* I'll get away with it through the weekend, but only because I won't have to pack lunches for school and there's still milk for coffee. Sunday's really going to be the outer limit, though.

Tonight I made coq au vin, mashed potatoes (pre-made and frozen), green beans (frozen back in August), and applesauce (canned in October). I took a whole chicken out of the freezer which I'll roast tomorrow. Not sure what I'll serve with it yet - maybe kale and/or cauliflower and some kind of seasoned rice. There should be enough leftovers to power Sunday's post-church lunch.

After that I really MUST head to the market!

My DH wouldn't even take the leftovers for his lunch), and baked spaghetti (REALLY good!!!). Hopefully the pizza rolls turn out good. We're having fun trying all these new recipes
MominKC - how did those pizza rolls turn out?? They look sooooo good! We are planning to have them SAt. night. but I'm going to use my homemade dough.
Thanks for posting the recipe

They were good! We went ahead and put pizza sauce in them. The recipe says to dip them in the sauce, but they were just fine with the sauce inside. It also took almost double the time to cook it seemed Definitely something the family all said they want again
