Well, we had our big fundraising event for work on Saturday and I am duly worn out. It’s always crazy when your months of work all come together and then in a flash the whole thing is over! We ate Chick fil A for dinner on Friday because I just couldn’t face anything else. Anyway, I tried to keep this week’s menu really simple in order to let myself just be worn out. And it doesn’t hurt that we have some people coming into town and will be eating out some! I’m going up to visit my parents next weekend, so I also picked a few simple, simple recipes to leave for Andy.

sweet potatoes with bacon (never did make them last week!)

slow-cooker pasta fagioli soup (I just checked the cupboard and realized that the rotini I have is “vegetable” and thus is green, soooo, this might be an interesting looking soup!)

Andy has an acquaintance from England coming into town, so we are going to introduce him to some good ole Southern barbecue (which I will not be cooking, hah.)

out with my dad, who is in town for a symposium

Southwestern sausage quiche (I have browned sausage in the freezer from the last time I made this–perfect!)
some sort of frozen vegetable

I’m gone, so I’m going to leave Andy some meat sauce (browned ground beef with a jar of pasta sauce) for spaghetti, and there are plenty of frozen vegetables in the freezer.

Forgotten Chicken (This is a really easy and delicious recipe–you just have to make sure you start cooking it before you are hungry, because it has to bake for an hour and a half!)

(I went ahead and planned for this night because my flight gets in at 6:20, so I’ll want to know what’s for dinner.)
oven-roasted sausages, potatoes, and peppers (I’ll get Andy to peel and dice the potatoes before I get home. ;-))

What’s on your plate this week?

I’m linking up with Organizing Junkie’s Monday Menu Plan!
