*I get a lot of emails wondering how we manage to eat homemade meals every night, even with our busy schedule. I plan our meals depending on how much time I will have to make dinner and whether we are away from home that day or not. I have included notes on what is going on each day to illustrate that, but I'm wondering if it's really helpful to anyone??
Friday (Shmoo has a late game)- chicken soup, homemade bread
Saturday (only two trips to arenas, neither interferes with supper)- pulled beef sandwiches in the crock, homemade rolls (making extra for tomorrow), and cabbage salad made ahead
Sunday (lots of hockey, and the Superbowl!)- long-simmering chili (natch), homemade rolls leftover from yesterday
Monday (Shmoo has an early practice)- baked potatoes left in a low oven until we get back (about 1 1/2 hours), toppings and leftover chili
Tuesday (Gracie has a late game)- roast pork tenderloin, potatoes, carrots, and onions
Wednesday (power will be out from 9-3 for maintenance, so I'll make supper early in the morning and re-heat later)- soup made with Tuesday's leftovers, homemade bread
Thursday- veal scallopini with mushroom sauce and onions, rice, mixed frozen veggies
