Our Menu (Week of February 19, 2012)

In the Fridge Casserole

I briefly debated with myself about putting together a menu plan for the week.

Lazy-Negative Me: “Your kiddo is sick, you don’t feel so hot yourself, and your schedule is erratic this week.  Forget it.  Don’t waste your time.  Go give yourself a facial instead–you look pale and lifeless.”

Slightly-Less-Negative Me: ” That’s the look I was going for!  Crazy house this week?  All the more reason to create a menu plan, Lazy Me!  Think of how much easier mealtimes will go, think of the joy on the face of your husband and child when presented with pre-planned, delicious meals!”

Barf.  SLN Me makes me cringe.  I’m feeling a little delirious after getting up 487 times last night. Cheesy, overly eager, SLN Me won the battle though.

Even simple, sometimes uninspired menu plans are beneficial to me: I’d rather have one and alter it, than not have one and stare into fridge, mouth slightly ajar at 4:55 p.m.  Pretty.  So pretty.

Lots of soup will be had this week.  We are sickly folk, after all.  slurp.


  • Oatmeal with raisins and bananas x 3
  • In the Fridge casserole, peaches x 2 (I’ll share the recipe soon)
  • Toast with jam, fruit salad, o.j.
  • Apple cake, berries, hot cider


  • Leftovers x 3 plus fruit
  • Cheese and chicken quesadillas, apples
  • Salad wraps with vinaigrette, berries
  • Couscous with zucchini & sun-dried tomatoes, multigrain crackers
  • Tomato soup, grilled cheese, apples


  • Chicken & veggie noodle soup, cheesy-jalapeno bread
  • Vegetable chowder, French bread with butter
  • Spinach stuffed chicken breasts, twice-baked potatoes, broccoli
  • Slow cooker Angel Chicken, salad, cauliflower
  • Spinach chicken bake, roasted asparagus ( I have a lot of spinach in the fridge & freezer I’d like to put a dent in)
  • Leftovers Night x 2


  • Fruit: honeydew, strawberries, bananas, peaches, apples (do you have Pacific Rose in your area? SO delicious. But such a short season of only 2 months)
  • Multi-grain crackers & Greek yogurt
  • Carrots, celery, cucumbers, dip
  • Babybel cheese & graham crackers
  • Fruit smoothies (with a little spinach thrown in)

Do I have company in the sick-home arena?  Are you cooking up some soup this week, too?  Love to see what’s on your menu plan this week!
