Weekly Meal Plan #68

We are starting a new format for our Weekly Meal Plan posts. We will each take turns sharing something that was a highlight from our week, whether that is a new recipe, something that surprised us (good or bad), or something that we find helpful to point out.

This week was a difficult one for me, in that my youngest was sick for much of the week, and the older kids still had activities to get to. So I wrote off my meal plan fairly quickly, and decided to go with whatever could be managed while caring for my daughter.

One thing that entailed was using my appliances to make dinner for me. I used my bread machine several times to babysit my dough so I could be free if my daughter needed me. I also cooked dinner in the slow cooker or in the oven, so that it was very hands-off.

This also meant I didn’t make a lot of “extra” things – I love to bake, so mostly no desserts – but I did get a filling, healthy dinner on the table every night. And ultimately, that’s the point. The Fam needs to eat – make it good!
