We’ve just started a kitchen remodel.

As a result, our eating situation will be – shall we say – “unique” for the next 4 weeks. (Especially with a 6 month old just starting food…and no kitchen!)

BUT! I have a plan. The first step in this plan is to toss my “reusing/recycling” habits to the curb. We’re using ALL throw-away plates, utensils, etc, whenever possible. Washing daycare bottles by the bathroom sink every night is bad enough. :)

Here’s my strategy for getting through the next few weeks with only a toaster, microwave, crockpot and grill. :) We’re also not really celebrating Easter, because it’s just TOO MUCH. :)

 March 23rd – 28th

Sunday: crockpot chicken and biscuits (biscuits done in the oven before losing my oven!)

Monday: grilled steak, peas, pasta with butter (premade before I lost my stove!)

Tuesday:  mississippi roast (crockpot), pasta, steamed veggies (steam bags in the microwave!)

Wednesday:  leftover chicken and biscuits

Thursday:  leftover mississippi roast

Friday:  fish from our local Catholic church for Lent

Saturday:  OYO – on your own, as we have a busy day and will be apart for most of it!

 

March 29th – April 4th

Sunday: chili (from the freezer!), over rice (made in the microwave)

Monday: grilled steak, grilled potatoes, steamed broccoli

Tuesday: cafe rio pork (crockpot) tacos with fixin’s

Wednesday: leftover chili

Thursday: leftover cafe rio pork tacos, taco salad, or nachos

Friday: last Friday for fish at the Catholic church

Saturday:  try our hand at grilled salmon, wild rice mix (microwave), peas

 

April 5th – April 11th

Sunday: crockpot jambalaya, corn muffins (from the freezer!)

Monday: grilled steak, grilled potatoes, steamed broccoli

Tuesday: crockpot french dip sandwiches, baked chips (purchased), salad

Wednesday: leftover jambalaya

Thursday:  OYO – on your own due to scheduling

Friday: grilled pizza (dough from the freezer)

Saturday:  grilled burgers and dogs! (hoping it actually FEELS like spring by this point….)

 

Now, ideally, that gets me back in my kitchen. But JUST IN CASE – I have a 4th week planned:

 

April 12th – April 18th

Sunday: grilled pork chops, applesauce, wild rice mix (microwave), steamed green beans (steam fresh bag)

Monday: grilled steak, grilled potatoes, steamed broccoli

Tuesday: crockpot lasagna, salad

Wednesday: leftover pork

Thursday: leftover lasagna

Friday: grilled sausage sandwiches with onions/peppers, pasta salad (bought from a local cafe)

Saturday: take-out
