This weekend we are leaving the kiddos in the capable hands of family. Still, it's the first time that they'll be without both Mr. McC and I (gulp!).
Being the Type A personality that I am, I have drafted a ten-page (not even joking) care guide for my patient mother. Mind you, she has watched the babies on a regular basis for the past year, yet I still feel the need to micromanage every detail. Poor woman.
Oh how I can relate:)
As I write this I am roasting eggplant for the kiddos (and us) and meal planning to prepare everyone for the weekend. With lots to get ready, it is going to be a week of standbys and tried and true favorites.
Here's what we're cooking:
- Cheesy Tex-Mex Rice: One pan, a few soft tortillas with fixings and you are done.
- Easy Sausage & Peppers: Yet another fantastic one pan meal that tastes fancy thanks to some broiler magic on the peppers.
- Pioneer Woman's Braised Short Ribs: A commitment, but heaven in a pot. Especially when served over creamy polenta.
- Roasted root vegetables for kiddos
And there will probably be at least one frozen DiGiorno supreme pizza in there. Because, Thursdays.
Have a great rest of your week and a fantastic holiday weekend!
