Meal Planning (10/4-10/10)


Happy Tuesday! We closed out another busy week last week just in time to start yet another one. I almost can’t wait for winter, just because maybe we’ll finally get to slow down a little bit.

Neil is on call this week and we are both finishing up massive freelance projects, all while juggling in-progress ones as well. We’re both in separate rooms right now at 10 pm working on bits and pieces, trying to get ahead for tomorrow. Its always feast or famine with this business, and while that keeps me from turning away work 99% of the time, I’ll be happy to hit slow patch soon.


With that said, we started the week on a good foot food-wise. Neil pan-seared tuna steaks and garnished them with avocado, soy, ginger, and lime (recipe via Food Network) for dinner Sunday night. It was the first “adult” meal we’ve really had in a while that wasn’t prepped with Kaitlan in mind or planned to last several days. Kaitlan hasn’t had a lot of seafood, and she enjoyed it okay — though not as much as the broccoli and mashed potatoes. She would live on peas, broccoli, and mashed potatoes if we let her — oh and watermelon.


For the first part of this week, we’re doing pork pot roast in the crockpot with carrots, potatoes and onion, and the latter half of the week will most likely be something else in the crock, just for ease. I really want to do pulled pork, but we’ll see what’s on sale. It really feels like fall, so I’m craving all the comfort food.


This weekend I’d like to prep a few crockpot meals to freeze, just for those random Thursdays we seem to find ourselves without meals. I cleaned the fridge out over the weekend and got rid of some things that had just fallen to the bottom and gotten freezer burn. I think prepping a few meals once a month will fit, and hopefully won’t end with the same fate.

Done any freezer cooking? What do you recommend?
