I’m the menu-maker. I’m also usually the cook. But when I’m sick, I just don’t wanna. If I’m lucky to have enough energy to shower, cooking dinner isn’t high on my list. But we still need to eat.
My husband is great about picking up the cooking responsibilities when I’m not feeling so great. (Yes, that would be today.) Last night he grilled dinner for us, and he made extra grilled chicken that we can use for a two more meals. Yay! Hopefully I can kick this cold before too long. But today I’m menu planning with my hubby’s help in mind.
:: Breakfasts ::
Baked Oatmeal Cups (made the night before)
Cereal, Milk & Fruit
Peanut Butter Banana Toast Sandwiches (our own creation )
Scrambled Eggs, Toast, Fruit
:: Lunches ::
Munchy Lunch (finger foods – crackers, cheese, veggies, fruit, nuts)
Peanut Butter & Jelly rolled in a tortilla, veggies on the side
Mac & Cheese (Annie’s from the pantry) & Veggies
:: Dinners ::
Grilled Bratwurst, Sweet Potatoes, Corn
Fast Homemade Pizza
Sticky Chicken, Green Beans, Crock Pot Baked Potatoes
Simple Broiled Fish (olive oil, salt & pepper), Rice, some sort of frozen veggie 🙂
Chicken Fried Rice (with leftover grilled chicken)
Chicken Spaghetti (with leftover grilled chicken)
So who’s the cook in your house? And what happens when the cook is down for the count?
