Today is departure day! I have 153+ things to do before settling Squishy into his car-seat and taking off for the grandparents (his fabulous babysitters for the week while I'm away).
Yesterday I ran to the store twice to make sure I had enough food for 1) my "batchelor" husband while I'm gone, 2) the growing boy staying with his grandparents, and 3) me, while I travel! Gallon of whole milk, check. Trail mix, check. Frozen meals in the freezer, check.
Yesterday, I made Spaghetti for lunch, and then packaged some up into Squishy-sized portions for a few easy dinners while he is at my parent's house.
Here's what the menu
will may look like while I'm gone:
Monday: Leftover night (there is Shredded Beef Filling, Buffalo Chicken, and Spaghetti in the fridge)
Tuesday: Frozen Pizza (courtesy of Freschetta, who sent a coupon for a free pizza in my Prep-For-Bliss package!)
Wednesday: Taco Bake from the freezer
Thursday: Chicken and Veggie Stir Fry (the chicken is prepped in the freezer)
Friday: Shrimp Scampi (frozen Marie Callender meal--another free coupon in my package!)
Saturday: Errrm....there is some frozen homemade pizza dough in the freezer too!
Sunday: More leftovers!
Ok, so I'm loosing steam at the end of the week there. When I get back, it will definitely be time for another freezer cooking day. But I think hubby will manage all right (he can cook, too!). There will probably be a guy's night one of those days, including take-out or the grill.
Meanwhile, maybe I'll be eating Tiramisu at the Opryland Hotel...
What do you feed your family when you're away? Please tell me that frozen pizza is sometimes involved....;)
